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’.

Bottle poured into my trusty stein- poured dark brown, nice off tan head formed and stayed around to play cards with me, medium-light carbonation. Aroma of burnt wheat with notes of banana and clove- a little odd with the burnt wheat for me. Hits the mouth with a high-thin body, malt comes through cleanly and has a creaminess to it, very slight sugar note on the finish. Another one for my sessioner class of brews...

RSRIZZO (2009) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Aroma is caramel and alcohol. Color is a near solid hazy amber with good carbonation and a tight off white head. Taste is fizzy and roasted. Starting with a light/medium body it goes down with a foamy feel. Finish is a mildly roasted caramel taste backed by a easy bitterness. In the after taste there is an alcohol feel and a slight sourness. Not bad, but for some reason the alcohol is prevalent yet the content is not that high. I noticed this in the Kristallweizen also, but not in the Pikantus that has ABV. of 7.3%.

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 14, 2008
Szép sötét barna színű és tömör habú ital.Illata picit édeskésebb mint a testvéreké.A barna sörökre jellemző pörkölt maláta íze van és kevéssé érezni benne hogy búzáról van szó.Nem rossz de annyit nem ér emennyit nálunk kérnek érte.

leftarmover (8) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 7, 2008 does not count
Attractive looking beer, with nice thick off-white head. Bready aroma with very little noble hop coming through. A little "mouth-thin" for my liking given the sweet malt on your palate...was looking for a little more body to go with the sweetness. However, still an enjoyable glass and would gladly sup a few more!

MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2008
Bottle, Dark pour with beige head 1 finger thick. Spicey/citursy aroma. Candy sugar and bitter fruit flavor. It was just okay for me.
