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’.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2007
Rated 7/3/06: Newly stocked item at a local store, picked up a single. Even with the glass tilted an enormous fluffy head sat atop a dark cola colored beer. After a few minutes the head settled and a nice looking glass of beer sat in front of me. Nice and aromatic sweet yeasty scents are easily detected. This one is definately different from the other hefe’ and dunkel-weizens where as it doesn’t seem to contain a large presence of banana and clove esters. Although unique it is still very appealing. Mouthfeel is better than average, very smooth but somewhat dry. Flavor is good and surprisingly mellow for this style. Seems balanced and the sweetness from the aroma carries through. Not the best I’ve sampled but well worth picking up.

light malt and spice aroma, albeit too light... good weizen but nothing outrageous

Carl99Fan (187) - Suwanee, Georgia, USA - MAY 15, 2007
Pours dark brown, with red highlight. Medium tan head. Dark malty flavor, but not too dark. Medium carbonation. Got better as it warmed. Really enjoyed this one.

krysztofar (344) - belleville, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2007
Pours a heavy brown with a thick head that takes its time disappearing. smell is yeasty and sweet like dried dark fruits. taste is mildly sweet and malty. rich and smooth with a long finish and crisp bittering hops. well carbonated.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAY 10, 2007
Bottle at home. Malty and dark. Fruity flavours as well. Caramel and roasty tastes. Too watery, I thought. Smooth finish. A bit dull overall.

beervis (243) - Taylor’s Country, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2007
Not bad at all - better than their ordinary hefe. Dark, malty flavours, aroma liquorice, some banana and spices. full bodied, tingly mouthfeel. Finish long and slightly dry. Good stuff.

Russo (2012) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2007
Bottle 500ml and appropriate Glass. Nice dark beer, with a cloudy toffee brown dense head and a fuity aroma also the flavor is ctiric and fruity and the mounthfeel is toasted malt with a little bitterness. Boa cerveja preta, com uma espuma densa e de coloração bege, um aroma frutado e um sabor cítrico amargo, deixa um sabor de malt torrado na boca.
