COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Hirter Morchl beer is not just a unique brand – its production method also differs from that of other dark beers. Hirter Morchl is still brewed the “proper” way, with dark brewing malt, hops and caramel malt, which are also responsible for its dark colour. Beer lovers will appreciate its dry maltiness on the palate and pleasantly rounded, faintly bitter finish. The Hirter Morchl is another specialty beer that is allowed to mature naturally and in its own time and that is neither pasteurised nor otherwise interfered with. It is rendered non-perishable by means of a double filtering process.

Thanks rateyourpoison for sharing. Pours a deep brown with a small creamy light tan head. Aroma is sweet and chocolate malty, a bit nutty, a touch fruity with some caramel candy notes. Flavor is again very sweet and malt, cocoa and a hint of coffee though there is very limited bitterness. Some dark fruit and a bit of cola. Medium slightly creamy body and a soft carbonation. Tasty dunkel

A very nice dunkel. Rich and malty. A little bit toasty and roasty, but mostly yummy. I am pleased. Serving: Bottle and tap

Pours clear deep brown red with decent brown head leaving some lacing on the glass. Aroma is carame, roasted malts, hay, fruits and some yeast. Flavor is roasted malts, coffe, raisins. Easily drinkable. Tart sweet and crisp on palate. Finishes bitter tart and slightly sweet. Very nice!

teorn88 (1923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2010
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.

Michail (12) - ITALY - AUG 25, 2010
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.

nuplastikk (4321) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 10, 2010
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.

benfergy (198) - Valley City, North Dakota, USA - AUG 3, 2010
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.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - APR 24, 2010
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.
