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’.

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…

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2008 500 ml bottle. pours dark brown with a big tan head. yeasty, roasty malt, some chocolate and hops all in the aroma. terrific complex flavours. ive never tasted one like this. quite enjoyable but something to have once in a while. great find.

50cl bottle from systembolaget. Dark, murky brown with a nice sudsy and thick light tan head. Aroma is very light with a slight wheat/grain and yeast. medium body and higher carbonation. Tastes like bananas, toffee and cloves. Light subdued bitterness. has that sweet hefe taste. Pretty good, but nothing special. Probably couldnt drink more than one of these in a night.

heavy (2817) - Split, CROATIA - SEP 16, 2007
0.5 l bottle. Pours dark brown body with huge ocher head. Not too much aroma but nice hints of chocolate malt and some wheat. Flavor is very nice and full, not so sweet and similar to the Hefe Weizen but good on the other side. Long finish with wheat felt. Medium carbonation, murky body. Interesting and very good beer.

Notes: On draft at The Esplanade Bier Markt in Toronto. Dark brown/black with red-yellow highlights and a enormous fluffy off-white head. More subtle cocoa aroma, with hints of herbs. Roasty coffee and chocolate all throughout. Solid flavor, and very tasty. Smooth, creamy, and slick on the mouth and tongue. Way too drinkable (even in a 24oz glass). I’ve had this out of the bottle before, but this was spectacular on draft.

Bottle. Very dark in color with a good, fluffy off-white head. Good lacing on glass. Aroma of dark malted wheat along with the banana and clove. Very good flavor of dark wheat and banana. Very tasty dunkel weiss.

EHSRanders (2047) - Tjele, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2007
Bottle. black colour with large frothy off-white mostly diminishing head. Faint malty aroma. Sweet flavor. Oily palate. Very refreshing.

burkekamp (4) - USA - SEP 5, 2007 does not count
Bottle. Pours very nice, dark but not heavy, nice head. Aroma faint but not unpleasant. Flavor - very little. I’ve had sparkling waters with more going on. Like a watered-down brown ale, lacking any complexity whatsoever.

BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2007
Like the Weizen of the same brewery, that’s been high-hjacked by sweet and malty goodness. Not a great scent, just like a regular Weiss beer with a slight malty twist. Thick, lacing head. Nut brown, caramel, chocolate taste, it’s got the best of both worlds, Weizen and Nut Brown, together at last.
