3.59/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

I've never been impressed with Erdinger's hefeweizen. It's probably the least impressive German offering of the style I've tasted so I was interested to see of their dunkel would have a little more to offer.

A - Looks gorgeous. Really dark, cloudy, hazy and yeasty.

S - Not picking up a lot. Faint phenols, perhaps a touch of spice and wheat. Not much yeast.

T - Similar to the nose. The baseline refreshing wheat flavour is there, but there are none of the spice, malt or yeast layers which give the best dunkels their taste and complexity.

M - Carbonation is pretty good, but the beer feels a little thin and watered-down

O - Looks great but slides downhill thereafter. I wouldn't bother with this one again.

Ireland

3.85/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A - Very dark brown or black depending on how much light hits it.

S - Dark fruit, spices and earthy notes.

T - Rich dark fruits, cloves and a sweet finish.

M - Mild carbonation but otherwise watery.

O - A deep inviting beer for those that like this style. Easy to drink even though many will be put off by its dark appearance. Although I prefer other Erdinger beers as this one feels a bit too heavy on the taste buds.
