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’.

On the finish a lovely dunkel...the nose is too wort-ish for my taste. Toffee, I think not coffee as others have commented. All in all a lively beer on a coolish summer night hearkening to the coming Oktoberfest beers of September... a nice gateway drug

Ciemne z ładną beżową pianą. Silne aromaty słodowe, brązowego cukru i delikatna nuta banana. W smaku czuć trochę palonego słodu i skórki chleba. Trochę mocno wysycone, na finiszu lekko kwaskowe.

50 cl. bottle @ Home. Aroma: not very intense aromas of malts, toasted malts, caramel, spices, hints of honey, brown sugar. Hints of ripe banana as the beer got warmed. Appearance: deep brown color, quite dark but it seems very hazy. Light brown color foam with extremely high height. Super creamy foam made of tiny-to-little sized bubbles. Extremely high retention. Very low Brussels’ lacing. Taste: medium sweetness, low bitterness, no sourness. Flavors of malts, toasted malts, some caramel and bread crust, brown sugar, grains. Hints of roasted malts, dried fruits, raisins, prunes and ripe banana. The balance is toward the malt sweetness. No much hop flavors nor aromas here. Palate: medium body, watery texture, low carbonation, quite long sweet finish of malt sweetness, toasted malts, caramel, toffee, bread crust and hints of ripe banana, raisins, prunes, brown sugar and spices. Overall: good appearance, pleasant aromas and flavors of malts, toasted malts, bread crust, caramel, toffee, ripe bananas, some spices too. The malt sweetness is not cloying and it is quite drinkable. Quite watery. No hints of wheat flavors nor aromas. No hop flavors nor aromas. Very low bitterness. Just a decent beer.

Originally rated on 1/21/2009. Hints of banana, wheat and malts, Deep brown/black body witha thick taupe head that leaves decent lace. Flavor was of mild malts, and a little wheat, mouthfeel was a little watery. Overall it was o.k., but i wouldnt purchase it again.

Pleasant drink, but not exceptional. Pours frothy with lasting head, as you’d expect from a Weizen. Aroma of caramel and some banana. It’s a dark beer, clear and bright. Taste is overwhelmingly of malt, some fruit, but very little bitterness. Frothy and gassy, so full palate. Pleasant, decent, but I was slightly reminded of an alcoholic dandelion and burdock. Which is not necessarily bad. Would be good on a nice summer afternoon in a beer garden

Leicht malziger Antrunk, nicht hefig. Hat nicht mehr viel mit Weizen zu tun. Nicht mein Geschmack. Wieder zu viel Kohlensäure enthalten!

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 (366) - 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 (678) - 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.
