Style: German Dunkelweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Carefully selected dark malts with delicate roasting aromas give ERDINGER Dunkel its full-bodied flavor and strong character.

This elegant wheat beer has a lustrous, deep dark-brown appearance in the glass. The first sip reveals a harmonious symphony of carefully selected wheat and barley malts with exquisite Hallertau aroma hops. The taste buds detect hints of caramel, nuts and fresh bread. An unmistakable top-fermenting accent is provided by ERDINGER’s traditional yeast.

ERDINGER Dunkel first saw the light of day in 1989, when ERDINGER’s master brewers created a dark wheat beer as a birthday present for the private brewery’s owner, Werner Brombach. He liked it so much that he decided to put it on the market in 1990.

Pleasant - toffee / bread - but unremarkable especially at the price of an import.

After having the pikantus before this, not as much flavor. Still, nice dunkel, just very subtle flavors of Carmel and wheat.

I don't like, never drink, stout. I love this dunkel. Not as thick or strong flavoured as Guiness stout

A deep beer with a lightness, every time it pushes dark it pulls back. Grain is within slightly to curtain.

Taste rating in words: it's a shear curtian being held up, just before the show.

Decent Dunkel...

Loved the way it looked - dark, thick head, dissipating very fast. The smell had a strange floral scent, not appealing at all. Mouthfeel was light and a tad watery. The taste was full-mouthed barley, nutty, and the lightest hints of caramel. I really enjoyed this, of course, I am a bit warm on dunkels...

From an 11oz bottle best by 08-2018. Mahogany color with a good two fingers of tan head. Smells of grass with a hint of malt. Sticky feel with plenty of carbonation. Tastes of malt, cloves, and some floral hops. Lighter than you'd expect given the appearance.

Pours a very dark brown similar to a cream stout. Three finger pillowy head that sticks all the way down the glass with great lacing. A light cocoa taste is followed by some corriander, clove, and banana. It’s light to medium bodied with tight medium carbonation. Just fantastic! A great session brew. My first time and this may become a go to. Don’t think this case will last past 2 sessions.

As part of a Dark side flight at Bier Markt Montreal - a must try.
A) NOt much to set apart, neither head, lace nor body. Brown pour.
S) NOt much here either Malts.
T) Cola like, sweet, wheat beer.
F) Feels clingy to my teeth and ready for a different pour.

Pours a dark chocolate brown color with a thin velvety tan head. Head is thin but has excellent retention.

Aroma is rather subdued but there are some notes of wheat, roasted malts, little bit of clove and banana on the finish.

Taste has notes of wheat, toasted malts, lots of banana, hints of spice and clove on the back end. Hops play a complimentary role allowing the malts to shine.

Feel is smooth and creamy. Fizzy carbonation with a slightly dry finish.

Overall its a solid beer. I'd drink this one again.

Poured a cloudy dark brown color with tan foamy 2 finger head that dissipated to a thin retained film. Aroma was slight nuts, malt and bread. Faint malty taste with a hint of cloves and chocolate. The taste is a bit flat. Creamy moderate feel, moderate carbonation and a bit dry.
