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’.

Wegro (332) - Fresno, California, USA - NOV 29, 2007
Smells unsurprisingly yeasty and wheaty, with only hints of malt. Pours a murky dark brown with some floaties if you hold it up to a light. Great looking head with big ol bubbles. After warming up a little it has some nice caramel and hints of chocolate in the typical crisp and wheaty hefe body. I got it from BevMo and got it because the tag for it said WEIZEN BOCK so I was looking forward to that but it must’ve been labeled wrong. I like this more than the Ayinger but only slightly. It has a slightly bigger body but it’s still pretty light like you’d expect a wheat beer to be. Nice price at $2.59 for the bottle.

.5 liter bottle. Pours a dark brown with a small fizzy white head. The body is quite thin and smooth. The taste is quite like a hefe-weizen, but not citrusy or sweet. A strong wheat flavor with some roasted malt and cocco. Really drinkable and nice.

Slipstream (2546) - USA - NOV 27, 2007
Half-liter bottled labeled a dark hefe-weizen, not dunkel - but I think it is the same. Dark brew with a foamy head. Mild to medium hefe flavor with an astringent rye finish. Fairly hi carbonation. Clean, crisp, and tasty. this was my first dunkel, and I would like to try more.

Poured a really foamy head and really dark looking. Hard to see if it was cloudy as its so dark but finally was able to see it. Nice toasty malt aroma. Light toasty taste reminiscent of well done toast. High carbonation feel on the palate but surprisingly light. Very drinkable and worthy of future purchases.

yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2007
0.5L bottle, 5.6% a/v Pours a very dark brown colour with a generous light brown head. The head sticks around for awhile as well. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, spice and some fruit (I had a plugged up nose, so maybe im way off) Taste is chocolate, roasted malts, and some spice. There is also caramel and some molasses present. Somewhat thin on the mouth but not detractingly so. This is my first Dunkel, its not bad but i definetly prefer my weisse over it.

This isnt a bad beer really. Its just that it isnt what youd expect from an import. Smells quite pleasant to tell you the truth but doesnt smell like a beer. Pours black to me while others say brown. Foamy head that disappears quickly which is very disappointing. After the head goes it looks like Im drinking a Cola. The same could be said about the taste almost like Im drinking a Cola or a non-alcoholic carbonated soda. Not much mouth feel to it either.

tomer (3294) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 21, 2007
0.5L bottle. Murky dark brown with some deep red streaks. mild roasty aroma with some yeast, some roasty aroma and some metalic notes, aftertaste is sour in an unpleastant way. Overall the beer feels diluted, very dissapointing.

On tap at the Loreeley a biergarten on Rivington St NYC. I enjoyed the weisen meets dark malt that poured an average head. Cloudy body released roasted grain taste. Body was medium and provided a moderate sweet and bitter combo.

Bottle. Labeled best before the end of 10-2007. Poured a dark brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate, roast, bananas, and I’m getting some dark fruits. Tastes of chocolate, roast, bananas, and a trace of caramel. Lively body.
