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’.

IN my opinion the best German brew made! Smooth, very smooth & silky....! Like a virgin in a bottle or in a mug! Best on draft! Great taste & body!

A masterpiece! This beer has not been rated highly enough to date! The Erdinger line is as close as I have found to the beer on tap in Germany. This Dunkel is far better than any like it in North America.

Great dark Hefe beer. Not expensive (actually very good value) and a real pleasure to drink on a late summer day in a beer garden. Dark and refreshing, with a mysterious appeal of darkness, but Vorsicht, only drink when you are hungry. It tastes like a fine bread and is a pleasure, for sure, to share with close friends or a Wingman (USAF).

Sencillamente la mejor cerveza que he probado en mi vida. No tiene desperdicio, aroma cargado con un toque maltoso, justa concentración de alcohol, aroma espectacular.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2017 Thick creamy, tan head on top of an opaque black body. The smell is of grassy notes. Beautifully delicious! So clean and crisp on the palette with no hint of the coffee or chocolate notes it's color suggests. Easily one of the best beers I've ever had. Oh, and one more thing...FIRST!

In the USA this is apparently sold as the Erdinger Hefe-Weizen Dark.Pours a very dark brown with a nice dark beige head which lasts a while. It has a mild but appealing aroma with hints of coffee and malts. Taste is very smooth and well balanced.

Supurb smooth beer with body, flavor, color and a great head. Not for bitter lovers! The best beer I have ever had. Too bad it costs $4.00 per bottle in Canada.

Good body and excellent flavour. Just what I expected from a German beer: totally strong.
