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.

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 15, 2012
Poured into a tall 0.5 liter glass stein. Copper to brown colored with two fingers of fluffy off-white head. Rich smelling malt, pepper, barley and slight citrus. Rich tasting also. Sweet and malty, a bit chewy, almost no carbonation, and a touch of bitter. At the end it has a watery taste where the dominate flavors quickly fall off. Very enjoyable. Looks amazing and smelled and tasted great. Tough to beat.

Saeglopur (266) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle. Dark red to brown body, with a medium, creamy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, dark fruits and sour berries. Taste with the same aromas, also bread and nut notes. Mouthfeel is medium, creamy, with a medium carbonation and it finishes bitter-sweet. Not bad, although I was expecting a bit more. But definitely one of the best Dunkels from Austria and fortunately not as sweet as many others.

worldbeertaste (1608) - AUSTRIA - APR 14, 2014
What is nice about this beer is that it is readily available almost anywhere in Austria. Super easy to drink and sweet. Clear brownish red with a medium beige lasting lacy head. Smells of roast, dark malt, caramel and herbal hops. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Nice taste of nut, dark malt with caramel sweetness and a bit of a roast bitter finish. Elements of raisins and dark fruit. A excellent Dunkel
