Bottle conditioned.
Ingredients: Water; wheat malt; barley malt; roasted malt; hops; yeast.
Name changed from Erdinger Weissbier Dunkel to Erdinger Dunkel, and abv changed from 5.6% to 5.3% by 2012.
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’.

This beer didn’t impress me much. Poured a dark amber color with a nice retaining head. Smell had nice fruity accents and good taste of maltiness. Decient taste of dark malt but not much there on any other flavor. I did like this beer though.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2009 500ml bottle from the LCBO, pours a murky brown with an unbelievably huge biege head that pretty much never subsides. The aroma is macro-like grains with some mild caramalt and minor yeast. Flavour is mildly better, caramalts upfront met with some darker fruity esters, plum, yeastyness and booze. Mild spicy bite in the finish which is kind of cool. Palate is much smoother and less effervescent than what I would expect from a Weizen of any kind. Different enough, interesting, but something about this style has never sat well with me. Mild roastyness as well but somehow the whole package seems strange and unnatrual to me. Drinkable but I would not buy this again. Too bad the label is really cool. If you let it sit for a while to calm the hell down it’s much more enjoyable.

Brown color; small lingering head. Aroma of caramel and dark malts, slight banana and nuts. Flavor matches aroma with notes of wood, carob, bread and very slight bitter chocolate, coffee, minerals and tropical fruit. Not too heavy but flavorful.

Dieses Bier ist wirklich ein Genuss. Schon wenn man die Flasche sieht, bekommt man Lust auf den Inhalt. Und das Bier enttäuscht nicht. Sieht klasse aus im Glas, hat ein super Aroma und der Nachgeschmack bleibt einem noch lange sehr positiv in Erinnerung. Kann ich nur empfehlen.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2008 Dark color, strong head. It contains to much roasted malt, the roasted taste dominate the beer, the acidic and banana taste waste away. At the second rate: Now i had a moaderated sample with a moderated design(the label is not a black one, it is a friendly brown one) and i must update my rate... The taste is moderated too, the dunkel character is easier than before. Better, really good one. Complex and fine body, smooth mouthfeel. Fine roasted malt, banana and spicy taste, clove and vanilla, some cinnamon.Yumm, really fine!!!

Loved this beer. A little strong and acidic but great taste. You can feel the alcohol and the carbonation is great.

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.
