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.

This is no Aventinus by any means. The Beverage Tasting Institute of Chicago gave this a 98 out of 100...I wonder if they were drinking the same beer I was drinking because this does not deserve a score like that.

smells all right - black bananas. goes downhill from there. murky brown, thin, bubbly. shallow caramel flavour precedes ugly cheap vodka/boiled vegetable finish. an insult to aventinus drinkers

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 Drive your car full of chocolate bars to the abandoned steel mills of Buffalo, go to the edge of Lake Erie and fill your glass with lake water...walk back to your car and open it up to find that the chocolate bars have come alive from the sun's piercing rays and are now rapidly oozing into every crevice..
Now all you see is liquid chocolate with sharp metal objects sticking out here and there..now forget all about that and take a big swig of your cold lake water..mmmm..now open your eyes..your in a padded room, totally restrained, and drinking pepsi from a tube..

Opaque amber brown with a variable bubbled medium lasting beige head. Faint woody hops, raisins and toffee apple malt aroma. Big treacley sweet start. Mild roasted malt, tawny port wine and some fainter dried fruit flavours. Sweet malty lingering finish and aftertaste. Higher ABV is well masked but it’s quite a long way from an Aventinus.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2004 Nov, 2002: Wet and brown. [1.3]
Sept, 2004: Coca cola beer. Sweet, malt, dough, bread, fizz. Stale flavours. This is like an old, old beer. Dull. Vaguely unpleasant. Strange. I struggle to see why some people like this.

Clove, wheat, milky, chocolate aroma. Deep, opaque red-brown in color with a large off-white head. Some visible effervescence through the murk. Flavor is sweet, bready and a little classic weizen citrus comes through before the caramel and rich chocolate textures take over. I was initially worried this might be a little too unbalanced towards the sweet side, but it holds itself in check by a thread with the faintly citrusy weizen flavors, and alcohol presence. Finishes lightly nutty, again chocolate, toffee and some vanilla as well. Reasonably full-bodied. Aftertaste is malty and lightly musty. A fitting beer for a chilly October eve.

Rerate: I found this a bit sweet the second time around - maybe it’s just my preferences changing... it’s still pretty decent though. </P>Original Rating:Simple, yet very nice. Decent, frothy head which lasts, beautiful aroma of hops (suprisingly) and those wheaty characteristics. It LOOKS highly carbonated but doesn’t taste it (this is GOOD). Overall a very plesant beer!

Dark brown with a nice creamy head. Caramel aroma is tempered with a bit of lemon. Pretty one-dimensional flavor -- unless you like a cloying caramel bomb with a dash of alcohol, don’t bother with this one.

Sits black and rich in the glass, with a more manageable head than other Erdingers I’ve had. This is not unlike a doppelbock, though perhaps its thinner. Though expect a fairly sweet and rich bock. Shame on Erdinger for failing to put the pic of a goat on the label.

A brown to deep red unclear beer with a fantastic head. It has a nice fruity aroma and the flavor of hoppy bitterness combined with a pikant spicyness
