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.

schoolofchuck (135) - Kansas, USA - JUL 21, 2012
From the half-liter bottle to a tall glass. Aroma is toffee, some milk chocolate, some toasted bread and caramel. Dark brown with a ruby tint. Taste is sweet upfront, but this certainly isn’t a "sweet one". The flavor is somewhat charred, malty, and sweet with mild bitterness present in the finish. Feel slightly bubbly for how thin it is. Overall, pretty good.

Tim Webb (225) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2012
500 ml bottle at Krah-Krah in Vienna. A beer than illustrates neatly the limitations to the term Dunkel. Near-black, heavily caramelled with a touch of black asphalt, but not too sweet. Bitterness virtually absence but a bit of hop aroma. A must-have in Austria.

Fin (7013) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2012
Had this at Elferhaus, Innsbruck 31.05.12 Pours reddy brown with good clarity and a light tan head. Very soft and smooth in the mouth, quite subtle compared to a typical German Dunkel. Some caramel and a little bitterness are the underpinning characteristics of this beer. A little mushroomy on the nose, fruity (dark fruits) with a slight tanginess. Good but no great shakes.

islay (888) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2012
16.9 oz. bottle. Aroma features milk chocolate chip, orange, lemon, rhubarb, toffee and brownie scents. Some dryness. Citrusy sharpness bordering on sourness. Interesting smell, but it’s a mixed bag. Pours a bright, mostly clear, medium brown. A touch of haze in the liquid and a reddish hue to the color. Moderate amount of dark taupe/light tan head. Uncommon, appealing appearance. Flavors of milk chocolate, lemon, and carob. Fruity (red grape), minerally, vegetal (celery), and a bit yeasty. Sweeter than ideal for me but enjoyable. Mocha, coffee with milk, and light metal in the finish. Soft, watery, easy to drink, and insubstantial in the palate. Hirter Morchl is interesting and reasonably memorable, earning it a bonus point in the overall score.

rozsoma (361) - HUNGARY - MAY 28, 2012
3rd Wiener Bierfest, Vienna, Austria. Sampled by Kis Salétrom and Szebeni Ászok. SZÁ: Na ez már javít a főzde pozitívabb megítélésén. Igazán ügyes kis söröcske ez, amit az ízlelőbimbókkal csinál az kacifántos. Krémes, jó a teste, ügyesen mozog. Olajos. KS: Afféle Balaton-íz és fogas. Mint amikor hasast ugrasz a vízibicikliről, de rosszul fogsz vizet és nagyokat nyelsz a Balatonból, de akkorákat, hogy még egy fogast is kifogsz vele.

Scipio (650) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Pours a very dark amber, perhaps brown, with a beige head. Aroma is caramel, bready, and some chocolate. Taste is lighter, and isn’t to bad. Very malty with the above noted flavors from the aroma. Kind of earthy as well. Some carbonation, but altogether smooth. Nothing of not really stands out.

Fatehunter (1076) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 15, 2012
Poured into a tall 0.5 liter glass stein. Copper to brown colored with two fingers of fluffy off-white head. Rich smelling malt, pepper, barley and slight citrus. Rich tasting also. Sweet and malty, a bit chewy, almost no carbonation, and a touch of bitter. At the end it has a watery taste where the dominate flavors quickly fall off. Very enjoyable. Looks amazing and smelled and tasted great. Tough to beat.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2012
On tap at Centimeter II, Vienna. Pours clear, red-brown with a big, off-white foam head. Roasty dark malt nose with hints of caramel. medium sweet flavor with a nice caramel character, toasty sugar and dark malts. Medium in body with average carbonation. Lightly dry, sweet finish with caramel, toasty malts and dark sugar. Exactly what I expect out of a dunkel. Nice.
