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°

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.

500 ml bottle. Pours a clear chestnut brown with a beige head. Aroma of sweet malts along with ash and some sour notes. Medium body with medium carbonation. Medium sweetness with a light bitterness towards the finish. Flavor of overripe stone fruits, cardboard, wood.

herrklemann (104) - AUSTRIA - SEP 17, 2016
Pours a dark red amber with a big, frothy beige head. Aroma of sweet toffee, roasted grains, grapes and raisins. Taste is rather sweet with only a hint if bitterness. Light, slick body with very soft carbonation. Pleasant, but very sweet.

Bot, finally a chance to taste the notorious hirter dunkle. 11 oz bottle, how come those euroguys always try to rip us yankies off for an ounce? In my little sniffer this has a very mild malt nose. Nice and dark, looks like a dark american lager. Personality is a little more than a typical mild dark lager, has a tad of that baltic thang goin on here. After I get over the initial baltiness of it all it then settles down to stripped shucked attitude about it. In the background, I may detect a hair of smoke, but now I think I just imagined it. AH! I think I taste the soft mountain spring water used in the brewing which has been left to mature in a none GMO prolonged aging process, go figger. I’m liking these mild darker beers, so much more enjoyable than a stupid baltic, foreign imp stout porter, heheheh.

hrabren (934) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 30, 2016
On tap at Krah, krah, Vienna, Austria. February 2014. Shared with lovely Anja. Dark red to dark brown color, lasting off-white head. Faint aroma, malts and caramel. Strong toffee flavor, nuts, caramel, some bitterness in the finish. Light body, soft carbonation, drinkable, a bit bland. Good Dunkel and a drinkable brew.

Patrickctenchi (6089) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 4, 2016
Bottle: Red-brown with a frothy tan head. Caramel malt, chocolate aroma. Taste is dark bread, caramel malt, raisin. An older bottle, so a bit of oxidation in scent and flavour.....and a little flat. Nothing exciting......probably pretty solid when fresh.

Mild aroma with a brown dark color, also mild taste of roasted malt. Easy to drink and not very lasting on a tong. Not bad but noting special

Cristobal37 (812) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 12, 2015
Nice dark cola color with minimal white head. Aroma is kinda weak, but sweet caramel comes through. Nice hazelnut peanuty malt character. Chocolate and roasted malts. Nice finish. Slight bitterness at the end, but not too dry, leaves the palate wet and satiated. A nice dunkel from Austria.

MarkoNm (2381) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 14, 2015
Pours a dark brown color, topped with a fine tan colored head, lasting. Roasted malts in the aroma, some mild sweet caramel. Taste starts slightly sweet, taken over by roastiness and some caramel, slight coffee feel. Mild bitterness in the end. Decent.
