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.

Saeglopur (488) - 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.

Tastes better than it smells. Sweet and malty, with a lightly dry finish. Rather uninteresting.

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - JAN 14, 2013
Aroma maltato, caramellato. Colore marrone con un bel cappello di schiuma persistente. L’assalto al palato è dominato dal malto, supportato da una dose leggera di luppolatura. Una birra caramellata e dolce come ci si aspetterebbe da una Dunkel. Un buona bevuta.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2007
A frothy-headed, deep woods brown lager. Heft of malt well balanced like their German cousins. Maly and toasted with notes or raisin. The Europeans just do this beer better than we do.

kjc51478 (418) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - SEP 25, 2011
500ml Bottle. Appearance is dark brown, black color with medium, beige head. Aroma is sweet malts with plenty of roastiness present. Taste is similar - sweet and roasted malts, hints of chocolate, and only a slight bitterness. Palate is medium-bodied, slick texture, average carbonation, and a semi-sweet finish.

Not what I was expecting. Not very good, sadly. Sour and kind of gross in flavor, frankly.

Pretty good... Malty, slightly sweet, in both the aroma and flavor... wasn’t watered down tasting... enjoyable.

sinte (370) - Udine, ITALY - JAN 7, 2013
Bottle 0.5 L. Brown body with reddish shadings; medium, creamy, tan head, mostly lasting with some lacing. Moderate-to-hesvy aroma of dark roasted malts with notes of nuts, caramel and maybe raisins. Mainly sweet flavour, nicely balanced by a bitter note that becomes dominating in the finish. Medium body with an oily texture; some soft carbonation is felt. Nice beer.

I really enjoy this. I love how Malty and roasty it is. So much better on tap also even tho I still enjoy it from a bottle. Aroma is typical. Taste is slightly smokey. Lots of malts, caramely, roasty. Nice body. Really creamy head. A great lager.
