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.

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2007
Nice looking--dark brown, with a sizeable off-white head that leaves a goodly lace. Aroma, however, is rather unpleasant, buttery, with some thin carob notes, and a metallic twang. Flavor is relatively thin, unpleasantly buttery, with some carob or cheap nougat notes.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2007
Clear bright light chestnut color with just a hint of rudy when held to the light. Moderate ecru colored head. Nice lace. LIghtly toasted malt aromas dominate with hints of cocoa and herbal hops. Somewhat simple, but no faults. Dark caramel sweetness that fades to a black malt bitterness. Quite nutty and lightly salty in the linger. Dry somewhat grassy finish. This is a nice summertime dark lager. Quenching and dry in the finish.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - JUN 6, 2007
Rated 3/29/07: Dark brown pour with a fizzy head that eventually subsides leaving spotty lacing. Aroma is a subtle blend of sweet malts and fresh bread. Medium bodied at first but the finish is thin leaving little trace of an aftertaste. Flavor is slightly more robust than the aroma. Decent malt content with sugary sweet breads and a sprinkling of brown sugar. Drinkability is very good and overall this is a nice dunkel.

EithCubes (4749) - 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.

presario (4596) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 29, 2007
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.

spporras (259) - FINLAND - MAY 28, 2007
(Bottle BBE 09/2007) Caramel, roasted malty and coffee aroma. Dark brown red colour and light brownish, average size head with fair lacing. Roasted malty (slightly burned), caramel, coffee, sweet and slightly acidic flavour. Lively carbonated, slightly dry and medium-bodied palate. A quality dunkel! 19/05/07

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2008 Tap at Maproom. a very nice dunkel, malty, toasty, somewhat sweet and clean. Big fluffy head. Nice.

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 (3896) - 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.
