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’.

Dark, cloudy, nut brown. Flavor stands out and feels smooth, but not gulpable. More of an easy sipping beer. Tastes like chocolate crakers. Not bad, i would try it again, and it is easily my favorite Erdinger.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2010 Had at the brewery outlet in Munich, and enjoyed every sip. Tried next to the regular (hellas) weiss bier, and might have liked this one better but I think that is due to mood....re-rate...Cola-colored, opaque with thick tan head. Brassy overtones on top of dry malts. The soft palate carries the flavor well. The chocolatey malts are also bready. The body is pretty thin and light, making it easy to drink. Clocked in at 6-4-6-3-12 and orig rating is 6-4-7-4-13.

Marzipan, chocolate, and grass bouquet that actually works. Ridiculously thick tan head even with a careful pour. Mahogany color. Watery and metallic chocolate taste. Caramel finish with grass on the edge. Fairly unique and my rating reflects that. I could do without the metallic taste.

Dark brown with a little lacy head. Coffee and dark chocolate with bananas in aroma. the same caries over to the flavor. Not bad.

A middle of the road dunkel. Pour was a dark brown with a one finger off white head. Aroma was roasted malt and almost chocolate. In a blind smell taste I would have guessed porter. Taste was nice and carbonated with roasted malts, coffee and banana all coming in and out. Not as complex as some of the other German dunkels but good.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2007 It’s a very good beer. It looks like a porter but doesn’t really have a head. The taste and aroma are awesome. I drank this out of a shaker.

kringlan (20) - Falun, SWEDEN - SEP 22, 2007
Very light for a dark beer! Thin mouth feel and carbonated to the extreme ( which in fact is nice). Dark brown in color with off white, quickly disappearing, head. Aroma wise sweet toffee, banana, coffee and chocolate. Roasty flavor, hint of licorice along with the flavors of the aroma. Quite fruity. The watery body makes it a bit of a boring drink. Still I suppose fairly interesting…
