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°

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 (2641) - 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 (5548) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, 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.

500ml bottle - Pours dark amber with a two finger head and a very malty aroma. The flavor has sweet caramel malt, a hint of chocolate, and some mild hops. It’s medium bodied and goes down easy. This dunkel is rather enjoyable.

harrisoni (16927) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2008
500ml bottle at Bohemian, Deal. Deep ruby with cereal, toffee and dark malts in the mouth. Nice toffee and good malts. Very different flavour on this dunkel, but it’s a good different.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Thanks Jason. The beer pours to a translucent medium brown body with a creamy off-white head. The aroma is full of mineral water and biscuits. Odd notes of something like buttered tobacco. The flavor is mineral water soaked tobacco and a deep caramelized sugar. Strange but fairly drinkable. Best by 03-2008.

Skyview (5477) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Sampled during Cheesehead YeHA in Brookfield, Wisconsin and shared by Ughsmash. Pours a light copper amber brew with a fast dissipating off-white head that leaves behind a fine film and light white ring with some spotty lacing. Aroma of sweetened bread dough, some powdered baker’s chocolate, caramel malt and some flowery hops. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of biscuit dough, dark chocolate some oak wood and a touch of dark fruit. Finish is slightly dry and mild bitter with a bread dough and chocolate aftertaste.

Ughsmash (7507) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Bottle, BB 03/08. Poured clear iced tea brown with a short, creamy beige head. The aroma picked up very sweet caramel and chocolatey notes along with some pils malts. The flavor was quite sweet again, with caramel and bready notes at the core.. sweet around the edges and through the finish, where it picked up some chocolate and minerals. Lighter-bodied and all kinds of sweet on the palate.. solid for the style, but I don’t find it to be a very good style.

Bottle at Krah, Krah in Vienna on our honeymoon. Pours a copper brown with a tall beige head. Aroma is very light. Bready doughy and bakers chocolate. Chocolate toasted flavors. Slightly burnt and biscuity. drying with bakers chocolate that lingers with an oaky earthiness. Nice balance of roast/toast/chocolate/sweetness/earthiness/oak. T beer.
