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.

pivnizub (8727) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2008
Bottle (diky, Quack-Ducku !): Deep ruby-amber coloured with a quite persistent, fluffy beige head; moderate to stronger, dryish roast-malty nose with a sweet caramelly background; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied; solid caramelly, but mainly dry roast-malty finish. A fine, fine Dunkel, absolutely not cloying.................

(bottle, courtesy of Quack-Duck) Clear, dark mahogany colour with a mid-sized beige foamy head. Sweet toast-malty aroma with strong notes of chocolate and caramel. Initially slightly molassy sweet flavour, toast-malty, slightly burnt malty taste with leafy, minimal dried fruity notes; moderately sweet and roasty finish with a balancing hoppy bitterness. Aromatic Dunkel with Schwarzbier attributes (14.05.08).

thegreenrooster (3157) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 18, 2008
Pour is a dark brown with a nice sized white head. Aroma is caramel and very sweet. Flavor is caramel malts with a little dark fruit and chocolate. Finish is a tad watery but there is enough of a profile to carry this one along. A decent enough dunkel.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Bottle. Small frothy, fizzy tan head that mostly diiminished, fair amount of lacing, transparent, carbonation observed, and a reddish orange hue. Nose was moderately malty, caramel, sweet, hoppy, some chocolate, and hints of fruit. Flavor was caramel, some chocolate, fruity, malty, and sweet.Tingly mouthfeel and medium body.Quaffable, easy to drink, but there are better available of this style and I possibly would have this one again.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAR 13, 2008
16.9oz bottle: Murky deep brown pour with a healthy beige head that slowly settles. The nose is full of toffee and plum notes, very fresh and bright. A subtle earthiness lies beneath. The body is full with sweet caramel malts taking charge. Esthery plum and raisin follow, with notes of butterscotch leading into a creamy finish. Very good and real drinkable.

heavy (2116) - Split, CROATIA - JAN 31, 2008
0.5 l bottle from an Eurospar in Graz. Poured dark mahagony brown body with medium brownish head living quite short, leaving laced glass. Aroma was quite weak, some pale caramel, sour to sweetish feel. Flavor sourish at first, with some fruits and hints of coffee, turning into slighty sweetish caramel, but everything so thin bodied and watery. Finish was fine, follows the best from the flavor. Not bad, but too empty and too ordinary. Not even near the best dunkel I’ve had.

thedm (4920) - Fort Wayne, USA - JAN 28, 2008
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy with a frothy top fine to large sized light brown colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent typically carbonated brown colored body and a good lacing. The weak aroma was sweet and dark malt. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The thin flavor contained notes of brown malt. An OK brew just nothing special.
