Appearance - Dark in colouration like a dark ale or even porter like. Dense dirty tobacco foam head which has very good retention.

Smell - Doughy bready aroma and plenty of banana with a good malty wheat profile.

Taste - Basically identical to the aroma profile. It cannot be denied this is an above average Dunkel but I personally feel the banana was a little subdued in the flavour and much more doughy flavour was coming through as a result. It was sweet but not quite what i would expect or hope for in the style.

MF - Creamy and full with a nice long lived linger that is mild but pleasing.

Overall - Pretty good, above average even but it is not the best you will come across and not as balanced in the flavour as I would hope for.

Very nice Dunkel! This has a surprising amount of carbonation, that helps push out the toasty malt flavours. It's not overly complex or layered, just tasty. Once you get past the yeast/corn nose and let this sit in your mouth, you can appreciate the overall balance of the Erdinger Dunkel.

Pours two fingers of light tan head on a dark brown body.
The aroma is caramel and damp grains.
The taste has lots of caramel sweetness, though nicely balanced by a light bitterness.
The texture is smooth with a light fizz.
It smells great and tastes nice.

Average dunkelweisen. Sweet malt, raisins, dates. No trace of hops.
