50cl bottle. Pours a cloudy brown color with a medium beige head. Aroma is strong and complex: Lots of malty sweetness, caramel, toffee, roasted notes, coffee and chocolate. Taste is similar with coffee, chocolate, roasted notes and hints of spicies. Medium/full bodied with good carbonation. Excellent brew.

2.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark red, mahogany, with nice beige head. Aroma is full and sweet: caramel, toasted malt, fresh black bread, a little molasses, raw cane sugar. Good nose. Taste is initially sweet, with a great maltiness like caramel and raw cane sugar, that develop in a roasted malt bitterness and toasted bread. Hops in in second plane, with light grassy hints. Body is quite light. Finish is a little short, with a light bitterness that fade very rapidly. Overall, is not bad... Quite easy to drink, just a little too much watery for my palate, but good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Deep, thick burgundy-brown with a beige head. Fruity caramel aroma, very mellow and milkshake like. Medium bodied, with some light, watery chocolate tones. Nice and bready, very soft on the palate. Yeasty creaminess really rounds this beer out, and gives it more dimension. Love to have it fresh on tap.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
The Morchl has a very strong aroma; it is reminiscent of carmel, grass, and bread yeast. The taste is fine, not too sweet, sour, or bitter. The body isn’t very thick, and overall I’m not fond of the palate, since palate-wise it doesn’t feel like I am drinking a beer. Nonetheless, the good aroma and flavor make this a decent, unique beer.

Nostalgic aroma of a 4H barn at the state fair. Easy drinking sweet and dusky flavor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Strong nose of licorice and soy sauce which initially dominates. The flavour mellows once it warmed up and had chocolate, licorice, soy, dark fruits and pudding. Sweet mouthfeel. A sort of love-hate relationship with this one. It really opened up and changed in the glass. Interesting beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a stable light brown head. Sweet malt, licorice, molasses, coffee, light chocolate and soy sauce aroma. The flavour has a very big soy sauce taste to it with sweet malt and coffee also present. As it warmed it then took on more complexity and signs of more chocolate, caramel and raisins. The soy sauce character was then not as intense. Very complex and not unpleasant but at first a little too much soy for my liking. It then did a back-flip and became really enjoyable. Need to remind myself not to drink this so chilled if I come across this again. Very interesting and complex dunkel.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Drank from the bottle, unfortunately didn’t have a cup to pour into so I couldn’t properly assess aroma or color. Tastes smooth, if not a bit light. Hints of malt, dark fruit and caramel. Good mouthfeel, not great but good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber, small tan head, clear. Aromas of malt predominate, with a bit of dark fruit and hops - kind of like a german bock. Taste is light - almost a bit too light, seems a bit watery - and fairly sweet, small amount of bitterness. This is a good lager that could be very good with a bit more malt.
