Bottle conditioned.
Ingredients: Water; wheat malt; barley malt; roasted malt; hops; yeast.
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’.

A rich chocolate color. Very effervescent. Aroma of toasted banana bread. Clove and banana dominate. Very drinkable.

motthes (165) - Bamberg, Bavaria, GERMANY - APR 30, 2017
Das Erdinger Dunkel aus Oberbayern. Schönes Etikett, allerdings passt der Kontrast nicht. Sehr dunkel im Glas, blickdicht, gut haltende Schaumkrone. Leicht malziger Antrunk, nicht hefig. Hat nicht mehr viel mit Weizen zu tun. Nicht mein Geschmack. Wieder zu viel Kohlensäure enthalten! Für den Sommer passts farblich nicht, und für den Winter viel zu lasch!

Macieg (23) - Torun, POLAND - APR 23, 2017
Ładna kremowa piana. Aromat ciemnej bułki drożdżowej, czekolada orzechowa, lekka kwiatowość. W smaku podobnie, sporo czekolady, bananów, chleb, drożdżówka, ciemne słody- czekoladowy i karmelowy. Przyjemne piwo

jann3 (361) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 22, 2017
Pours very dark brown with a beige foamy head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, nuts, yeast and ripe berries. Taste is sweetish with slightly roasted malts, caramel and a hint of chocolate. Finishes with moderate spiciness. A good example of the style. (0,5 l bottle, bb 11/2017)

hauxe (634) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - APR 22, 2017
Pours very dark brown from the bottle and leaves a tall, foamy off-white crown. A few evident floaters. The aroma is dank, yeasty, a bit nutty; noticeably absent is the banana component so prevalent in this style of beer. Taste is lightly milk chocolate sweet, trending sour going into the finish. Overall however the flavors are dampened by the somewhat watery impression the beer leaves behind, and there is not much complexity in the taste. Lighter than average body with a prickly carbonation. Decent but not particularly good.

mrjaxson (548) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2017
Big, puffy head releases a mild aroma of yeast, caramel and roasted nuts. Medium weight and sweet body. Not much hop bite. A good example of a tasty style. Poured from a half-liter bottle.

Grumpelmies (290) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 1, 2017
Bottle. Dark brown with shades of orange and black. Big foamy head. Aroma of (roasted) malts. Taste is malts, plums, chocolate, sugar and only a little bit of bananas. Almost no yeast character to speak of. Finish is sweet, a little bit sour and bitter. Medium carbonation. Ok.
