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.

Well it’s not my fave style, but here goes. A pretty dark ruby from a 500ml bottle of unknown age. Aroma of caramel and cassis and overripe berries. Flavor is sweet milky malts with just enough bitter to hold it down. Every sip is better than the last and the finish is smoother and more enjoyable than I would ever have expected. Wow! by the time I get half way through the bottle, I might go get another!

beeR (60) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 6, 2008
50 cl bottle. Puors dark brown with a reddish shine. Nice thick and cappuccino-like head, dense even if not really latsing. Rich but not strong aroma: malty sweetness, honey and some caramel. Red ripen fruits and a roasty coffe background. Medium body, roasted bitterness and sweet but less incisive than nose and than what I expected. Maybe too low carbonation. Nice example of this style considering I found it in a supermarket.

kappldav123 (4815) - GERMANY - SEP 27, 2008
The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Week malty aroma. Tastes mild-malty, earthy-roasty. Finish fruity, like plum. Could be a bit drier. Still not bad!

KyotoLefty (6324) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 20, 2008
Bottle in Vienna, 2006. Very dark brown, almost opaque. Good head. Faint aroma, a hint of roasted malt and caramel. Tastes more burnt and coffee-like than any other Austrian dark I have tried to date. A dark lager, but somewhat stout-like. Only slightly sweet, not a whole lot of hops either, but well balanced. Great malt.

ChainGangGuy (4366) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 19, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, dark reddish-brown body marked by a few bubbles here and there. Smell: Predominately malty aroma smelling of brown sugar sprinkled of dark fruits, particularly plums and raisins, and encompassed by a slight earthiness. Taste: Oh-so malty! Mixture of brown sugar and caramel with a solid sweetness. Fair amount of fruit. Not very hoppy. Slight soil-minded earthiness. Sip of cool, clean water. Sweetish, fruit finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Very, very slight stickiness to the mouthfeel. Drinkability: Hirter? I hardly know ’er!

ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Pours a brownish/black – with a small almost non existent head. Smells sweet and caramely with a strong alcohol note. First sip is pure caramel – sweet, sweet and more sweet. Finishes nice and bitter, carbonated well. If you like caramelized sweet beers, you will not be disappointed.

jsquire (3437) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Dark reddish beer with a large, rocky beige head. Lots of malt syrup in the nose with some dusty grains. This is a sweet beer with lots of malt and caramel, but the roasted grains try to balance it out some. Some burnt toast astrigency under all the sugar, especially in the finish. There is a thin-ness to it, but not a bad dunkel.

Slayer85 (1044) - Firenze, ITALY - JUL 1, 2008
Bottled. A clear dark red beer with a huge and persistent beige foam. The aroma is overall malty, not extremely powerful, but quite nice with notes of caramel and nuts. Light roastiness. The flavour has a medium sweetness, nice bready malts with again caramel notes and some hops in the end. Light to medium body, watery texture, average/lively carbonation, short/medium finish with light bitterness. Very drinkable, but too thin body for my taste. Worth a try.

The Etruscan (528) - Tuscany, ITALY - JUN 20, 2008
Beige foamy head. Mahogany colour. Aroma is malty with light roasty and bready notes. Flavor is malty too with light fruity and roasty tones, ending in a malty slightly nutty finish. Light bodied.
