3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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…
