COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Ingredients: Water; wheat malt; barley malt; roasted malt; hops; yeast.
Name changed from Erdinger Weissbier Dunkel to Erdinger Dunkel, and abv changed from 5.6% to 5.3% by 2012.
A wheat beer from the good old days.
Erdinger Weissbier ’dark’ is a rich and smooth wheat beer specialty from Erdinger Weissbräu. It owes its full-bodied flavor to the fine hops and dark malt used in its production.
The dark beer specialty is brewed according to an age-old recipe. Its spicy flavor also results from the increased proportion (about 13%) of original wort. Nonetheless, at 5.3%, it doesn’t contain much more alcohol than Erdinger Weissbier ’with fine yeast’.

No nariz, malte torrado, fermento e fundo de caramelo raspado. Na boca, malte torrado com retrogosto de café ao final. É uma cerveja agradável, no entando o conjunto não impressiona. Ótima formação de espuma, longa e duradoura.

lo primero que destaca al servirla, es su abundante espuma, esponjosa y ligeramente oscura, pero que luego desaparece rápido, sin embargo. El color es madera oscuro, turbio, bastante opaco, pero la levadura de su maduración en botella. En el aroma, el tostado y el pan son los predominantes, casi ocultando el frutal a plátano, que queda como secundario. El sabor inicial (quizá por la temperatura) es metálico, y pasa a notas dulces de pan y chocolate después. Pero es demasiado ligera, con poco cuerpo y no mucho carácter. http://cerveza.uvinum.es/erdinger-w 1,66€

Flaska systembolaget. Brungrå grumlig vätska med stort och fluffigt ljust beiget skum. Fruktig doft. Äpplekart, apelsin och koriander. Lätt och smått rostad smak. Äpplekart, hö och kryddor. Len och mjuk i munnen.

SinH4 (346) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 8, 2015
A very dark appearance even for a Dunkelweizen. Aroma is lots of malts, not much spicy yeasts... Taste is dark and feels complex, but isn?t really... a bit of plums and molasses, but nothing you?d expect of a Dunkelweizen. Chocolate, damn! A bit unpleasant, more malts than most other Bavarian Dunkelweizen... Not enough yeast character to be really good. A bit different, but I don?t know if that?s good...

Frothmeister (596) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2015
500ml bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a creme coloured head. There isn’t much to the nose, but some faint brown sugar, mineral notes, and raisin peek through. The taste has light molasses, raisin, dates, grape bubblegum, and woody notes that lead into sweet light coffee notes, brown sugar, light molasses, and an almost wine-like grape note in the dried fruit finish. Totally solid. A repeat purchase for sure.

mecafilo (114) - Perugia, ITALY - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle. Pours with a very dark red colour, medium diminishing frothy head. Aroma is medium to heavy malty, with notes of caramel and bread and hints of chocolate; slightly hoppy. Taste is medium sweet, slightly bitter, not so terrible actually. Little body, oily texture, fizzy carbonation.

Part of my 2013 backlog. Colour is dark cola brown with a tan head. Aroma has roasted malts. The taste has this too. Nice.

MatthijsE (885) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle @ home. Murky brown with orange tint, light beige long-lasting frothy head. Aroma of yeasts, bread, light sourness, nicely carbonated, medium body, refreshing and tasty.

"a little light on the palate, but a nice aromatic mix of dark fruit, bread, and ever so slight spices.

theSlipperyPen (248) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2014
Dark grey brown pour with a soapy off white head. Nose is of cloves and coffee, with some of those powdery yeast aromas. In the mouth is all very mild; not much sweetness, not much bitterness, not much Weiss or anything. But it’s balanced in its not much of anything-ness. Carbonation feels a bit too spritzy and the mouthfeel is thin. Good enough to drink but perhaps a little bit pointless.
