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!

Had this on tap at Wolf’s Biergarten in Schenectady,NY, and really liked it. I went to a beverage store but they didn’t carry the Dunkelweiss so I purchased a couple other Dunkelweiss products and will try those.

Dunkel style is not my favourite for wheat beers. Even though this one has a good taste it has nothing to do with the Hefe style one in quallity, not being so high. Anyway it is not a bad beer, toasted colour and great taste, a bit poor head by fact.

0,5 l bottle. Opaque dark brown in the glass, huge light tanned head. Low fruity malt on the nose. Starts very dry malty, less fruity. Little bit bitterness, coffie hints, nearly bready. Not that typical wheat summer beer, but a nice one.

Z butelki zapach jest zaskakująco czekoladowy – żadnych fenoli. Piana jest bardzo, bardzo wysoka – niezbyt drobna – jasnobrązowa. Dziurawi się z czasem, ale utrzymuje się długo. Piwo w barwie jest naprawdę ciemne – ciemnobrązowe – wyraźnie zmętnione. Ze szkła pojawiają się już goździki, ale gorzka czekolada jest nadal bardzo wyraźna. Nadal brak bananów. W smaku wytrawne – przynajmniej na początku; z czasem o dziwo jego odczucie zmienia się na raczej słodkie. Są korzenne przyprawy, nawet i lekkie banany. Znowu czekolada – i tutaj dominuje. Niestety jest też typowo erdingerowskie żelazo, a nawet całkowicie tu niedopuszczalny alkohol. Naprawdę sporo sypnęło się im palonych słodów, co przesuwa to piwo w ciekawym kierunku, chociaż niekoniecznie mieści się w stylu. Ale lubię eksperymenty i nie uznam mu tego za wadę. Ale wolałbym mieć tutaj silniej wyczuwalne typowo weizenowe nuty w aromacie, co w połączeniu z czekoladą mogłoby dać ciekawe efekty. Już nie wspominając o wyeliminowaniu tych nieszczęsnych żelaza i alkoholu. Ach ci Niemcy i ich żelazista woda…

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a big off-white head that quickly turns into a thin, creamy layer and leaves a very little bit of lacing on the glass. The aroma has sweet malts and a hint of fresh wheat. The taste is slightly sour with wheat, slightly sweet too. No bitterness. The palate is slightly watery, overall quite a boring beer.

Aroma-hiány (esetleg távoli pince-, ill. menza-hangulat). Átlátszatlan csokoládébarna. Kivehetetlen karaktere van, talán ettől olyan könnyű, és vonzó _lehetne_ egy kis bajor kocsmában filléres áron. flat carb de nem vészes, short finish, pörkölés sokára bújhat elő. 520 forint körül, CBA, 2015 eleje - kerüld!

VDuquerroux (502) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle, 500mL. Home. Trade with @Jaghana. Merci! A dark brown beer with a medium beige head poorly persistent. Roasty aroma, acid note, toffee. Light sweet, light to medium dry bitter refreshing, acid note. Light to medium body, thin texture, fizzy carbonation, short roasty finish. Overall, OK roasty grain aroma, refreshing, thin.

500 ml bottle. Spicy dark smell. Dark color with a big clear brown head. The carbonatation looks very unnatural. Sweet coffe taste with a soft aftertaste. A very creamy beer, but if im not having a dessert, i’ll preffer the Hefeweizen
