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.

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.

veceo (318) - CROATIA - APR 14, 2014
Deep brown color, almost completely black with light reddish hue. Thin tan head and no lacing. Medium body, average carbonation. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, herbal hops, dark fruits and berries. Medium sweet, light bitter taste. Very good.

sinte (315) - 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.

ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Pours a brownish/black – with a small almost non existent head. Smells sweet and caramely with a strong alcohol note. First sip is pure caramel – sweet, sweet and more sweet. Finishes nice and bitter, carbonated well. If you like caramelized sweet beers, you will not be disappointed.

spporras (259) - FINLAND - MAY 28, 2007
(Bottle BBE 09/2007) Caramel, roasted malty and coffee aroma. Dark brown red colour and light brownish, average size head with fair lacing. Roasted malty (slightly burned), caramel, coffee, sweet and slightly acidic flavour. Lively carbonated, slightly dry and medium-bodied palate. A quality dunkel! 19/05/07

Saeglopur (250) - 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.

Tim Webb (226) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2012
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.

On tap at Map Room, Chicago. A very nice dunkel-- fresh, with no aftertaste. Could drink many of these on a nice fall evening.

jodah52 (210) - Michigan, USA - APR 6, 2010
Dark amber, small tan head, clear. Aromas of malt predominate, with a bit of dark fruit and hops - kind of like a german bock. Taste is light - almost a bit too light, seems a bit watery - and fairly sweet, small amount of bitterness. This is a good lager that could be very good with a bit more malt.

The Morchl has a very strong aroma; it is reminiscent of carmel, grass, and bread yeast. The taste is fine, not too sweet, sour, or bitter. The body isn’t very thick, and overall I’m not fond of the palate, since palate-wise it doesn’t feel like I am drinking a beer. Nonetheless, the good aroma and flavor make this a decent, unique beer.
