COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Hirter Morchl is not just a unique brand – its production method also differs from that of other dark beers. The beer’s seductive color is due to the dark brewing malt, hops and caramel malt, while its smooth taste comes from the soft mountain spring water used in the brewing process. Left to mature in a prolonged aging process, it’s GMO-free, non-pasteurized and completely natural. Beer lovers will appreciate its dry maltiness on the palate and pleasantly rounded, faintly bitter finish. 12.8°

JK (5628) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2011 It is hard to find a better, true-to-style central European dunkel in the midwest. Brown with a red hue. Low carbonation, and a short lived, brown head. Aroma has malt and red meat. Lots of malt in the flavor, with fresh bread and lager yeast. Very smooth, and a good, sweet finish. Rerated 10/21/2011. Score unchanged. This time, I notice sediment floating in the beer, unusual for a dunkel, but I have no problem with that.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. The smell is malts, sweet, coffee, and fruits. The look is clear, brownish, with a beige colored head. The taste is a little roasty, malts, and coffee.

( 500ml bottled 03/2008 thanks to bu11zeye) Pours light brown with some bubbles and good lacing. Nose of corn, light chocolate. Semi-sweet chocolate also in the taste. Well carbonated and a light linger that is slightly off.

DrnkMcDermott (2990) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Draft, Bavarian Lodge. I had to squeeze in just one more before closing to wash out the unpleasant chile mead in my previous rating. A deep reddish brown color in the glass, with a light lacy head. Smell brings in darker malts, more familiar to a schwarzbier. A hearty, grainy dunkel taste. At the same time, reminds me of my very first dark beers (Schlitz Dark, way back in 1977). But it has the bones of a well-made doppelbock, too. A fine beer to finish off a night at a German stube.
