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.

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 (5296) - 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 (7354) - 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.

Dorqui (2141) - Brescia, ITALY - SEP 21, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2007 Bottled 0,50L. Beautiful and deep brown color with discreet bubbly aspect. Abundant head of medium resistance. Roast and toasted cereal notes, scent of malt and smoked wood. Very lively and much fizzy taste with pleasant aromas of burned wood and braced malt. Much bitter and amazingly balanced. Not much reisistente final.

On tap at Map Room, Chicago. A very nice dunkel-- fresh, with no aftertaste. Could drink many of these on a nice fall evening.

red-brown colour, id-sized and solid, brownish head.roasty smell with coffee. starts (unexpected) with hops. roasty taste with coffee is dominant but very hopsy. mid mor bitter and a bit sticky on the lips. ends bitter and smoky with sweet and fruity aromes. interesting.

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 (5045) - 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.
