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°

Poured a dark brownish-red with a finger of creamy, tan head. Toffee, molasses, and butterscotch dominate the nose, but raisins and some nuttiness are hidden behind those. Very sweet, almost toffee like all the way down, with a minimal hop bit. Goes down smooth. Very good, especially since a pint is only $2.

Dark, reddish amber color and minimal head. The body was light and slick. The flavor had notes of malty sweetness.

Kita (1749) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 29, 2013
Bottled, 0.50l. Clear dark brown color with large creamy light brown head that lasts quite long, pretty good lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel, heavy toasted malt, chocolate, light herbal hops and hints of lemongrass. Taste starts with light sweet malt, not very rich, then followed by toasted notes and moderate grassy or herbal acidity. After a while strong toasted malty character bursts out, in the end is balanced with moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is spicy, finish is long and bitter. Medium body, oily texture and almost flat carbonation in palate. Soon after first few disappointingly plain sips, general picture was turned upside down, happy ending reached...

Bottle in Minneapolis picked up in KC. Pours a dark brown appearance with a thin light brown head. Somewhat nutty, rich caramel, a big herbal nose. Candy caramel, chocolate, a bit nutty flavor. Not super fresh but alright.

Black-brown with thin tan head. Caramel, mild roast, and mild fruit aroma. Medium bodied, syrupy, malt dominant with mild hop notes. Decent balance and dry notes on the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown-teak with fluffy cream head. Chocolate nose, medium body, light carbonation, high residual sweetness but balancing malt astringency and hop dryness. Nice.

EtTuCthulhu (1390) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - FEB 15, 2013
The color of the beer is a reddish brown with a thick off-white head, and the aroma is strongly of roasted chocolate malts, fig, and dough. The taste is mildly sweet and slightly umami, but the palate fuses a soft carbonation, an astringent yet abrupt finish, medium body, and a creamy texture.

Dark brown with tan head. Smells of caramel. Taste of caramel and a bit raisen. Reminds me of Germany. Yes, I know it is from Austria.
