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.

500ml Bottle. Appearance is dark brown, black color with medium, beige head. Aroma is sweet malts with plenty of roastiness present. Taste is similar - sweet and roasted malts, hints of chocolate, and only a slight bitterness. Palate is medium-bodied, slick texture, average carbonation, and a semi-sweet finish.

Pours medium brown with a nice head that dissipates into minimal lacing. Aroma of malt and caramel, same for flavor. Taste is nicely balanced, but not assertive. Good, not great.

Silphium (3161) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2011
Bottle. Deep translucent orange-red body, thin beige head. Relatively dry nose of toffee, caramel, toast, and a little brown sugar; also leafy hops. Dense toffee flavors dominate the body, which also features caramel and hints of chocolate. Long leafy, toasty finish. Quite good.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 13, 2011
Mild malziger Antrunk, frisch. Bereits im Mittelteil wird das Bier intensiver, etwas karamellig, leicht würzig. Dennoch bleibt das Bier frisch, die würzige Seite bleibt unterentwickelt. Vollmundig im Abgang, wenig süß, leicht bananig und herb. Nettes Dunkles. Danke an Jevers Zeuge. Test vom 12.10.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,10,11,10,12,11 - 10,75

Probably the best beer... No, it´s not. But it is a very, very good dark beer. Caramel and fruits. And also nice to look at with a big head. I should have bought some bottles back home.

I really enjoy this. I love how Malty and roasty it is. So much better on tap also even tho I still enjoy it from a bottle. Aroma is typical. Taste is slightly smokey. Lots of malts, caramely, roasty. Nice body. Really creamy head. A great lager.

Half liter bottle. A drinkable, non-watered down dunkel with some quality roasted caramel malts through out. The aroma is hazy and light, though well balanced like the flavor notes. Some caramel malts, light coffee, roasted biscuits, and a crisp herbal grass. On the pour, a fluffy of off-white and well carbonated head, nice retention, light-medium in body, and deep ruby in color. The feel is not as carbonated as expected, and actually decently sticky and creamy and not too thin either. Minor mild-dark fruits up front, with some nutty, roasted biscuit malts and caramels coming after. Clean grassy hop mix in with the malt, but still finishes malty nutty. Not a ton of flaws here. This was solid, easy drinking.
