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’.

Bosskie (953) - NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2008
Almost black with a creamy, generous head.
Sweetish-fruity smell with citrics and hints of banana and cocoa.
Bitter-sweet taste. Watery.
Citric coffee palate with a refreshing wateriness.
Not bad. Bit too subtle for my taste.

17thfloor (2444) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2008
Pours dark brownish/black with a large frothy khaki head. Some chocolate and raisins in the aroma. Fruity raisin and light chocolate flavor. Not very interesting at all. Somewhat thin watery body and lots of fizzy carbonation.

Daredevil (76) - Bern, SWITZERLAND - APR 4, 2008
beautiful opaque color ... firm head ... smell of bananas, mango slightly tainted by a hint of detergent ... the taste is buttery, fruity, a slight bitterness, which is not too well integrated ...
quite a good beer, which could become a truly great beer with a bit of improvement in the brewhouse ....

Another beer that can be included in the ’serious session’ list. Breaks up the lager and placed right can really prolong your drinking over a night.

gam (4103) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2008
Thick biege head,frothy,good carbonation,misty yellow/brown pour.Aroma malt and wheat,extra cooking smell.Flavour mild chocolate,malt roasted flavour,allthe flavours are very weak,there is no bitter and a watery finish,a boring dunkel to me.

mmmbeer (1429) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2008
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...

JoeZasada (317) - Beaumont, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 21, 2008
Pours a dark brown with a light brown, thick head. Aroma of cloves and metal... tastes smooth, somewhat roasty.... quite good....

travita (5008) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 17, 2008
Dark with a tan head. Nice banana like smell. Smells good. Goes down very smooth. Aroma also has caramel tones.
