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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a rich near black brown body with reddish hues, a bit like a cola, with huge frothy tan head that quickly subsided.

The aroma thrown up is very low key coffee, chocolate and a hint of black cherry and molasses.

Their is a cherry cola flavour to this beer very sweet but not sickly with a malt after taste with a minimal bitter note and
wheat beer zing.

Very fizzy, very lively hides a flimsy mouthfeel.

Not my bag baby but not terrible, like Warren Beatty said 'nice'

16 oz bottle.

A somewhat nice looking beer, dark brown and slightly cloudy with some lacing but a quickly dissolving head.

Smell is ok. A touch of caramel, malt, perhaps some coffee and some light sweetness. Barely detectable roast. There might be a small taste of hops, but it's not obvious unless you're looking for it

Taste is kind of non-descript, sweet, with flavors of malt, roast, with a bit extra wheat and some yeast.

Mouthfeel is a touch thick but smooth.

Drinkability is fair. It's a good occasional choice.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a regular glass cup.

A: Dark brown, cloudy, two finger tan colored head, head recedes slowly, leaves little to no lacing.

S: Sweet, chocolate, caramel, roasted coffee, malt, very slight citrus hoppiness.

T: Roasted coffee bitterness and not much else.

M: Relatively thick mouthfeel, medium/high carbonation, smooth, slightly sticky.

D: I like how this beer feels in the mouth, but the flavor dissapoints. It seems to be very one dimensional in flavor with roasted coffee overwhelming the tastebuds. I probably wouldn't buy another bottle.
