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.

EithCubes (4628) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 30, 2007
Bottle. Sweet aroma of caramel, toffee, toast, and light fruitiness (red berry?). Deep ruby body with a lacing, neatly tanned head. Taste is predominately sweet (but nowhere near cloying), fruity and lightly sugary with caramelly malt and a few tones of dark, nutty toffee splashed on. Body is crisp from carbonation but very smooth and drinkable, medium-light in thickness. Aftertaste is toasty, very dry, and lightly hoppy. Pretty nice, a very good session.

Chicago trip. Monday 21:28+. I did spell it right! Bottle. Dark red burgundy. very light head. Scent like a lite smoked wheat. Lite smoked flavour with a hint of fruit.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2007
A frothy-headed, deep woods brown lager. Heft of malt well balanced like their German cousins. Maly and toasted with notes or raisin. The Europeans just do this beer better than we do.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2007
Pours a deep, rich mahogany with a 2-finger, fluffy, tan head. Faint cocoa notes reveal as sour vegetals fade while raisin, coffee and caramels intensify. Thin & sugary in the mouth. Malty, dunkel flavor has chocolate undertones but is more or less one dimensional (yet tasty).

Marko (3771) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 10, 2007
Bottle from some Spar in Graz
Poured a dark Cockta-like red-brown colour with a medium to small sized thick beige head that went away slowly. Roasty and somewhat malty aroma.... weak hints of coffee and later on, nuts.. Pleasant taste.... a lovely note of honey, weak hoppy notes, some hints of almond, low low lemony hints, silky body, inobtrusive but quite obvious roastiness going long into the aftertaste. The best dunkel I’ve had so far.

Bottle. Clear brownish colour with a huge mostly lasting light brown head. Aroma and taste of sweet mals and caramel. Softly caramel. Good buy.

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2006
You could call this dunkel a schwartzbier and I wouldn’t argue. It pours a dark brown body highlighted in ruby with a respectable creamy tan head. Nice lacing. The aroma is sweet with lightly roasted malts, some bittersweet chocolate, and crushed walnuts. Nice sweet roasted malt flavor, dark caramel, a nutty bitterness, and a suggestion of coffee grounds. Good sessionable lager.
