COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lovers of strong beer need not worry that ERDINGER Weissbier Pikantus 'dark bock beer' is going to be too sweet, as is the case with so many bock beers. Despite the higher alcohol content, the Erding brew masters have succeeded in retaining the special Pikantus taste.

500ml. Pours ebony with garnet highlights and a dirty white head that reduces to a ring of fizz that keeps moving for a while. Smoke, sugar, and chocolate on the nose; they’re joined by molasses on the tongue. That palate, though--the sugars come up, and so do the fizz. The aggressive bubbles really score the stuff against the surfaces of the mouth, it’s harsh and raw. It’s fun, it’s interesting and drinkable, but the rawness really subtracts from it. It ends up not being subtle or complex enough to make up for the sweet and the fizzy.

Tranquillity (1445) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 22, 2006
The aroma is smokey and full of malt. It looks a lot darker than my other doublebocks. Quite picuant flavour (hah!), which means that it’s quite hoppy. Very nice beer. Not that special actually, just very good stuff.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2006
Bottled. Thick flat black body, had a cappuchino head for a while. Aroma of wet glass and liquorice. Full of yeasty goodness, slight sweetness, carbonation brings a creamy palate.

jbrus (4991) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2006
Bottled. Aroma is sweet and fruity like brown bananas. Hazy, beige head, good lace. Sweet, light bitter and surprisingly hints of licorice. Smooth and alcoholic.

Quinten (1051) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2006
Darkly amber misty color, foamy head, Palate is slightly thin and flavours aren’t as complex as Aventinus. Smooth and fruity and a reasonable option if the big A isn’t available

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUL 14, 2006
Dark body, blackish, yet thin looking. Head is toasted white bread and long-lasting, thick head. Smells of robust hops, polite chocolate malt. Taste is large, sweet medium-thick palate. Carbonated, toffee, caramel, a little bitterness to go with sweetness, grapes, agridulce as they say in Spanish. Wonderful roasted malt characteristics and lingering froth, well-made beer. Purchased at Supermercado Haas in Cochabamba, Bolivia.

Rune (8928) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2006
500ml bottle in an Erdinger World Cup glass at Blå Rock Cafe in Tromsø while watching France vs Portugal on TV. Cloudy, reddish brown in colour topped with a small, but lasting brownish head. Aroma of wheat and dark chocolate. The flavour combines lots of sweet, roasted malts with an yeasty backbone. Medium bodied and dry mouthfeel. A bit too carbonated. OK.

thewolf (11362) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2006
Great dark brown colour with thick beige head. The aromas are limited,, mostly a caramel tone. It has low carbonation with good creamy texture. The taste is caramel that is roasted, lending some bitterness from that.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUN 26, 2006
Pours a murky brown. Very fizzy and not very palatable for me. Give me a Weizen or give me a Bock, but don’t mix them, dagnabbit!
