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.

Fin (8704) - 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.

KyotoLefty (8138) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 20, 2008
Bottle in Vienna, 2006. Very dark brown, almost opaque. Good head. Faint aroma, a hint of roasted malt and caramel. Tastes more burnt and coffee-like than any other Austrian dark I have tried to date. A dark lager, but somewhat stout-like. Only slightly sweet, not a whole lot of hops either, but well balanced. Great malt.

Ughsmash (7428) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Bottle, BB 03/08. Poured clear iced tea brown with a short, creamy beige head. The aroma picked up very sweet caramel and chocolatey notes along with some pils malts. The flavor was quite sweet again, with caramel and bready notes at the core.. sweet around the edges and through the finish, where it picked up some chocolate and minerals. Lighter-bodied and all kinds of sweet on the palate.. solid for the style, but I don’t find it to be a very good style.

Cunningham (6059) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 4, 2013
Clear deep nutty brown color with a big fine tan head. Good lacing. Caramel malty and mild fruity aroma. Medium + body. Tad sweet and an ok bitterness. Average carbonation. Balanced fine deep malty, toffee and some fruity notes in the flavor. Quite decent dunkel! Tasty and easy drinkable.
