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°

pivnizub (9895) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2008
Bottle (diky, Quack-Ducku !): Deep ruby-amber coloured with a quite persistent, fluffy beige head; moderate to stronger, dryish roast-malty nose with a sweet caramelly background; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied; solid caramelly, but mainly dry roast-malty finish. A fine, fine Dunkel, absolutely not cloying.................

Fin (9214) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2012
Had this at Elferhaus, Innsbruck 31.05.12 Pours reddy brown with good clarity and a light tan head. Very soft and smooth in the mouth, quite subtle compared to a typical German Dunkel. Some caramel and a little bitterness are the underpinning characteristics of this beer. A little mushroomy on the nose, fruity (dark fruits) with a slight tanginess. Good but no great shakes.

(bottle, courtesy of Quack-Duck) Clear, dark mahogany colour with a mid-sized beige foamy head. Sweet toast-malty aroma with strong notes of chocolate and caramel. Initially slightly molassy sweet flavour, toast-malty, slightly burnt malty taste with leafy, minimal dried fruity notes; moderately sweet and roasty finish with a balancing hoppy bitterness. Aromatic Dunkel with Schwarzbier attributes (14.05.08).
