Its like a light tasting, light feel Newcastle brown, with a hint of chocolate
I had bought a fancy boxed two beer and glass pack from Erdinger featuring their WeiBbier and their WeiBbier Dunkel. Both very nice beers so I set out to clone the Dunkel.
Here was my best guess first time around. It turned out very nice. The IBU's are perfect. Body is light, easy drinking, aroma is like coffee. I love the clean finish the 1010 yeast imparted on it. I may just enter this one for judging.
Revised Taste Comparison:
Bought an Erdinger Dunkel to do a side by side comparison. The taste was almost dead on. Colour was right on the money and it was murky like mine, side by each they looked identical. The Erdinger was slightly sweeter, more carbonated and had a velvety mouth feel. Next time I'll add 0.5LBS of Carapils.
