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.

birraiolo (206) - ITALY - MAR 6, 2012
Bottiglia da 50 cl. Birra con un aspetto interessante di color tonaca di frate con schiuma fine abbondante e abbastanza persistente di color nocciola. Il buon aspetto nel bicchiere è un pò in contrapposizione con l’aroma e il gusto, infatti risulta abbastanza piatta al naso con leggeri sentori di caramello tostato e una leggera frutta matura. Al palato risulta di corpo medio con un sentori di caramello tostato un leggero agrumato con un finale abbastanza secco e di liquirizia. Bello l’aspetto un pò meno gustoso tutto il resto.

Grima (2101) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2012
Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Schöne malzbierähnliche Farbe. Stark malziger, karamelliger Geruch. Malziger Antrunk, sehr angenehmer röstmalziger Nachgeschmack. Wird zum Mittelteil hin sehr karamellig. Insgesamt ein leckeres, rustikales Bier! Mein erstes Bier aus Österreich und direkt ein Volltreffer!

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle. Poured a black almost black color with a smaller tanish of white head. Aroma was lots of yeast, earthy, fruits, and malts. Weird bready flavor with hops and caramel in the finish. Weird flavor but was very good. A great beer.

mansquito (3444) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Binny’s LP 500ml ($2): Pours a ruby brown colour with an off-white head. Aroma is slightly fruity and toasted malts. Taste was originally a bit tarnished with some metallic character, but as I kept going through it, things did improve. The beer is slightly sweet, with some dark fruits making appearances. It is like a really light doppelbock. The finish has a slight seltzerish feel to it alas.

wxman (1449) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Pours a dark reddish-brown color with a thin small bead head that coats the glass somewhat. Smooth sweet caramely taste with some (but not much) hops. Very refreshing and enjoyable.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - DEC 28, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2011 Liter at Grunauer in KCMO. Pours a deep mahogany with a sizable, creamy, beige head. The nose is of clean toasty malt with some caramel and faint cocoa in there. Light-bodied and soft with an almost roasty, slightly drying finish. The flavor is of clean toasty caramel malt, some toffee and a touch of dark roast coffee in the finish. This is one of the tastier dunkels that I have sampled to date. Suggested by our server, Mark. Very good stuff, and a great compliment to my meal.

ContemplateBeer (1548) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 27, 2011
Aroma of milk chocolate, caramel, apple and light raisin. Appearance is cola red/brown with tan head. Flavor matches the nose, but with a nice waffle cone/coffee finish. Palate is bubbly. Quite tasty, but not excellent in every respect.

(draught) nearly black with very small tan head but really nice lace Sweet malt aroma. Flavor is sweet toffee malt, molasses, some coffee and dark fruits. Very dark for a dunkel.
