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°

Sampled in Kitzbuhel. A really good dunkel. Pours dark brown with a big head. Very smooth drinking with lots of carbonation. A nicely make dunkel.

Saeglopur (1668) - 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.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - OCT 2, 2006
From a 500 ml. euro brown bottle with a best before date, 20.12.06, on the back label. Poured a deep Coke Cola brown with a small off-white/beige head that settled into a thin lacing. Aromas of toasted grains and roasted coffee malts with a light fruitiness. Moderate carbonation and a crisp, slick and smooth medium-light bodied mouthfeel. Very tasty, a sweet caramel toffee and a roasted coffee, a soft fruitiness, a light spiciness from the hops, a little caramelized sugary towards the end and a sweet roasted malty finish. I didn’t know what to expect when I picked this up, but this dunkel lager was flavorful and well balanced, quite quaffable.

ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Deep brown pour with a light tan head. Aroma is caramel, malt, very light roast. Lots of malt. Flavor is malty, slightly sweet, good mouthfeel. Good beer.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2010
Bottle. Strong nose of licorice and soy sauce which initially dominates. The flavour mellows once it warmed up and had chocolate, licorice, soy, dark fruits and pudding. Sweet mouthfeel. A sort of love-hate relationship with this one. It really opened up and changed in the glass. Interesting beer.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Thanks rateyourpoison for sharing. Pours a deep brown with a small creamy light tan head. Aroma is sweet and chocolate malty, a bit nutty, a touch fruity with some caramel candy notes. Flavor is again very sweet and malt, cocoa and a hint of coffee though there is very limited bitterness. Some dark fruit and a bit of cola. Medium slightly creamy body and a soft carbonation. Tasty dunkel

inbirraveritas (1494) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 21, 2012
0.5 l bottle. Clear dark brown in colour with a medium sized and creamy beige head, which laces. Malty nose and aroma with caramel, brown bread and some grassy hops in the background, slick texture. Medium dry, toasty and mild spicy finish. Nice, harmonic.

AndyW68 (1432) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Dark brown with tan head. Smells of caramel. Taste of caramel and a bit raisen. Reminds me of Germany. Yes, I know it is from Austria.

EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - FEB 15, 2013
The color of the beer is a reddish brown with a thick off-white head, and the aroma is strongly of roasted chocolate malts, fig, and dough. The taste is mildly sweet and slightly umami, but the palate fuses a soft carbonation, an astringent yet abrupt finish, medium body, and a creamy texture.

onystrom (1333) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2009
Bottle. Clear brown color with small head. Aroma and taste are caramel, roast malt, notes of chocolate and fruits.
