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’.

Smooth, rich, not much bite. Caramel and chocolate but somehow not real sweet. Excellent with food as it doesn’t overwhelm. Really nice finish.

Dark ruby beer that fails to kick up much of a head, despite my vigorous pour - kind of bock-ish aroma, with strong caramel, chocolate, and raisin - very faint wheat in the background - soft, yet full in the mouth - light wheat tartness up front is squashed quickly by sweet caramel, fig, and chocolate that last through the middle - dries out a little late, and the wheat character becomes apparent again, adding just a tiny bit of tartness - a little metallic on the back end - more like a weizenbock than a dunkelweizen - not quite what I was in the mood for, but pretty tasty.

Milky brown with a medium light tan head. Aroma of light chocolate and wheat. Flavor of sweet & dark malts, wheat and nuts. Creamy texture. A bit different from the other dunkleweizens I had tried to this point – no banana or clove qualities. More like a Dunkel crossed with an American wheat beer.

When held up to a light this beer is a dark ruby. Personally I think it looks great, but the aroma and taste did not impress me as much. Not much to keep the palate entertained. Pretty straight forward all the way through. the sweetness is the only thing that works for me.

Smells very herbal. Earthy if you will... Appearance is amazing. I was very impressed with the appearance, first look it is a rich dark almost like coffee, but put it to the light and it illuminates a vibrant red hue. Flavor on this one is much like coffee. full flavor but not so much for the palate. You cannot taste the hops or the alcohol, and there is not so much as a hint of sweetness. Personally i truly like this one. Nothing exemplary about it but it is a superb session beer. A lot of low ratings on here but this one is worth trying if you already haven’t.

Kavu (5028) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 28, 2008
Very foamy slightly brown top. The colour is almost pitch black. I didn’t catch much of an aroma, but it tastes like you would expect a dunkel to taste. Full, malty and wheaty.

esta la probe en sivar porque el hotelito aleman en sanata elena la tiene y todos los dias despues de reuniones nos echabamos las birrias y pasamos un buen rato que vale la pena super

truegen (167) - Puyallup, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2008
500ml bottle from Tacoma Boys Market. Huge head on the pour, but dissipated rather quickly. Enticing aromas of bread, clove, and maple/caramel. Not overly sweet or hoppy, this is a perfect example of the style, and I love this style. No, it’s not done often enough in my opinion. If it’s going to be ’hefe’, make mine a dunkel.

charlotte (5416) - rødovre, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2008
Dark brown colour with large creamy beige head.Aroma of rosted wheat and malt short refreshing finish.

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Pours a dark hazy brown color. Aromas of bread, malt, and some fruit. Flavor has a touch of sweet malt and clove, I think. Overall, not to bad.
