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’.

Shinaki (8) - NORWAY - NOV 10, 2016 does not count
Aroma: Gjær, banan, nellik. Krydret karakter. Mørk brun farge. Tåkete. Solid offwhite skum. Lite bitterhet. Noe maltige toner, med preg av loff og noe lakrisaktig. Savner en kompleksitet og et mer tydelig fenolisk preg eller fruktestere. Noe fenoler kan kjennes, men ikke mye. Medium kropp, høy karbonering. Ingen vedvarende ettersmak og ingen tydelig bitterhet. Dog er det en fruktaktig sødme, som typedefinisjonene (Norbrygg) gir rom for. Totalt sett et lettdrikkelig øl, om enn litt kjedelig og endimensjonalt.

Tap. Aroma mildly malted hints of toffee. Pours chestnut brown with tan top. Taste has only a subdued wheat flavour with malts predominant and a gentle finish although I found mine carbonated too much.

Grisza77 (677) - Poznań, POLAND - NOV 5, 2016
Brunatne piwo o dość obfitej pianie, która zdobi szkło i pozostaje do końca w formie warstewki na powierzchni. Aromat i smak bananowy z nutą kawową, lekko kwaskowe. Goryczka niska, Ogólnie przyzwoita ciemna pszenica, ma wszystko na miejscu, ale też jakoś szczególnie się nie wyróżnia.

mgajdaczewa (1880) - Katowice, POLAND - NOV 5, 2016
Aromat trochę już uleciał, jest lekko goździkowo i karmelowo, szczątkowy. W smaku natomiast świetny karmel, czekolada z orzechami, lekki banan i przyprawy, bardzo gładkie, lekkie i pijalne.

Bottle 0,5 l, dark color, seems pretty good with the aroma of dark chocolate, much better then a light version. My recommendation for relaxing night. Cheers !

GreenCat (73) - SLOVENIA - OCT 30, 2016
0,5 l bottle. Pours hazy light brown with lasting huge tan head. Aroma is bread, yeast and banana, some caramel and a bit of roasty malt. some herbal hop too. Taste is light sweet, almost no bitterness. Body is light, texture watery with lively carbonation. Finish is sweet. Easily drinkable, but without proper character.

Luneylane (102) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - OCT 16, 2016
a bottle from Welcome supermarket near Jing Xing road, Wen Shan district, up the road from me - drunk at home. Aroma: some grassy notes from the hops, overlaid with bread. Appearance: generous tan head, clear, dark brown body. Palate: medium-bodied, creamy, soft carbonation, sweet at the finish. Taste: watery, not over-pleasant hint of Marmite. Taste is not at all complex, but does remain in the mouth for a while. I wanted to rate this one because it is so widely available around here. Nothing special, drinkable though.

BrewWhatIWant (91) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2016
Poured from a chilled bottle. Colour is dark brown, nearly opaque. Big, long lasting tan head. Aroma is of faint chocolate and coffee. Moderate body. Taste is sweet with slight tang on finish. Fairly malty with heavy chocolate tones. No noticeable hops. All in all, better than budweiser but not very well balanced.
