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°

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 (5208) - 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 (1738) - 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) - Stilwell, 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 (1990) - 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.

wlajwl (5688) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 16, 2011
In aroma this is very heavy on the toffee and caramel, a good sign. The flavor is similar to the aroma with a good palate. Among the best dunkels out there.

Countbeer (6083) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2011
Bottle: Pours a deep dark ruby beer with a medium to bigger pretty vast and little lively light brown/light tan/creme head. Smell caramel, toasted malts, sweeter herbs, some slight hints of darker fruit like prunes, figs and raisins, some oatmeal and grains. I got the idea that the smell is a tiny teeny bit withdrawn. Taste is a very nice, smooth balanced and pretty full tasting mix of caramel, toasted grains, some hints of dark fruit like raisins, herbs, grass, soft like butter, hint of something metal, hint of some (lighty toasted) nuts. A nice bitterness and a nicely balanced mix of darker ingredients. Medium bitter, herby, dark fruits and toasted grains in the aftertaste. Low carbo, soft light tingly mouthfeel, medium to a lightly bit fuller body and a light watery/creamy texture. Nice brew.
