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’.

500 ml bottle from LCBO. This is a very interesting beer, it is a wheat beer..yet it has massive dark malts of a dunkel. It pours a nearly opaque mahogany, with an absolutely massive off white head. The head lingered for the entire time I drank the beer! The aromas are of intense toffee, coffee, caramel and roasted malts. The taste is full of robust roasted malts, chocolate, and bubbling in the background is a bit of citrus...very interesting! The beer has a dry finish, and a pleasant aftertaste. This is very drinkable!

Svårt att säga men säger grumlig och svart-brun med ett stort brunaktigt skum. Doft: Banan, kaffe, kakao, lite rostat trä. Smak: Malt, jäst, jord, skumbanan, kakao beska, kokta grönsaker.

Clearly approvable dunkel which slips down without impressing me that much.
