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.

Murky dark brown, luscious head. Slightly sour bready aroma. Not too sweet, to my pleasant surprise, as this is a quality that in general turns me away from trying this style. Slight sour flavor that fades as it warms. In the end, there is in fact a light milk chocolate flavor. Better than I was expecting.

bottle. deep chocolate brown which poured a very nice head. nicely balanced malty flavor with nodes of bread and yeast. not as carbonated as Aventinus, which suits me just fine. One of my favorite Weizenbocks.

Dark brown beer with a giant head and malty aroma. Good flavor and leaves a clean palate.

not a huge W-bock, but tasty. looks like a vienna roast coffee with a bit of pale ochre-yellow dijon mustard stirred in. i spied a bit of yeast chunk in the bottle that i was looking forward to chewing on, but like a mirage it dissolved as i got closer to the bottom. the head fluffed like a coifed poodle, but for just a minute. i looked away for a second to take a few notes, looked back, and it was gone. kinda suspicious, really. i almost suspected foul play. strong bready malt aroma, coffee and plum spread on a schwarzwald rye loaf; plus pencil shavings, whipped cream with a squeeze of orange juice, american cigarette tobacco. flavor is sweet, with jazzy carbonation. alas, it’s a bit thin; the alcohol has a nice cameo, but the feel remains watery. with it’s cream soda sweetness, it’s mild tinture of rootbeer earthiness, it’s minimal bitterness-- it would go well with a festive meal, but enjoyed alone, it comes across as pleasant, but rather sedate company.

Pours dark brown in color with a big beige head. Aroma is malty and a little bready. Flavor is rich and spicy with a soft wheat character in the the background. Alcohol is slightly noticable.

11.06.04 Having poured from the same bottle as tsarman, I agree with him. Very nice. Very tasty. Smelled beautiful. But not as good as schneider aventinus. But I would still get this any day

A decent weizenbock, but cannot hold a candel to Aventinus. Dark brownish black color. Great for playing Hold ’em.

0.5 l bottle. Dark brown and cloudy with a nice tan head. Caramel, wheat malty aroma. Thick flavor. Banana and clove flavor. Good.

PorterPounder (5471) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2004
Picked up at Whole Foods in Austin, Tx. Dark purple to jet black pour with a thin and quickly dissipating off white head. Winey, woody, aroma with some cherry and pipe tobacco notes. Flavor has some of the same notes with some alcohol notes wandering around in the background. Detect a little bit of licorice as well. Clean mouthfeel. Although you can sense the alcohol, it is hidden quite well and not distracting.

0.5 l bottle. Dark brown and cloudy with a nice tan head. Wheaty carmel malty aroma. Thick malty flavor. Carmel, wheat, banana, clove. has that German maltiness that is not found in most American counterparts. Decent, but there are better examples.
