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.

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.

The beer pours a very dark amber with a nice light tan head, good retention and lacing. The aroma and taste are just all malt. Its all I can pick up is malt, almost indistinguishable from a marzen, which is one of my least favorite styles. I found this very boring, simple, and lazy. The feel is light, and for 5% its not very drinkable

A fine Austiran dunkel. It is sweet and malty, but super drinkable. notes of cocoa and subtle hosp adorn the tongue.

Decent dunkel with moderate depth of flavor, thin mouthfeel, and moderate bitterness. Nothing outstanding about it though.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Soft palate on this dark beer. Very moderate carbonation. One dimensional dark malt but nice nontheless.

wedgie9 (1888) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 13, 2010
Tasted from a 500mL bottle purchased at Armanetti’s. Pours dark amber with a thin white head that leaves spotty lace. The nose is milk chocolate with darkly roasted malt. The flavor is very malty with milk chocolate, molasses, and hay. The body is fairly light, but somewhat coating with average carbonation and a medium molasses finish.

[Tap] Pours a solid dark brown color with a cream colored head. Cocoa, dark malts and vanilla in the nose. Lots of roasted dark malt in the flavor, with lesser amounts of milk chocolate, sweet molasses, caramel and dusty grains in the nose. Better than expected body, with a rich/full mouthfeel. Creamy and sweet lingering finish. Well made and very easy to drink.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Bottle From Friar Tuck in Savoy, IL. Pours a dark amber/ brown with a light beige head. Inviting aroma cocoa, nutshells, and german malts. Light bodied with average carbonation. Flavor of vienna malts with a touch of chocolate and tobacco, countered by a very mild, balancing herbal bitterness. Nutty and grainy finish. Pretty solid example of the style.

Draught at map room. Legit beer appearance. Awesome pour. Dark brown with a towering mountain of head. Toasty, caramel, and light chocolate aroma. Nice caramel and chocolate flavors. Low hops. Very nice balance of toasty malt and sweetness. Medium light body. Nice stuff.
