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°

KyotoLefty (9403) - 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 (4808) - Woodstock, 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 (4167) - 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 (1051) - 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.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2008
500ml bottle, not bad at all! Poured a deep Coke Cola brown with a small off-white/beige head that settled into a thin lacing. Aromas of toasted grains and roasted coffee malts with a light fruitiness. Moderate carbonation and a crisp, slick and smooth medium-light bodied mouthfeel. Very tasty, a sweet caramel toffee and a roasted coffee, a soft fruitiness, a light spiciness from the hops, a little caramelized sugary towards the end and a sweet roasted malty finish.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - JUN 5, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2008 Non malvagissima ma niente di speciale, ha il suo punto forte nel sapore che è veramente strambo: una via di mezzo fra caffè e mozzarella. Il resto è piuttosto insulso; ah, ha una bella faccia anche se la schiuma se ne scende subito subito. Comprata alla COOP.

pivnizub (10182) - 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).
