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°

Quack-Duck (9110) - Down South, GERMANY - APR 28, 2008
bottle. Dark brown colour, large and incredibly persistent and creamy beige head. Malty nose. Well-balanced flavours of malt, roasetd malt and caramel with a fruity touch. Lingering finish with hints of caramel. Great stuff!

KyotoLefty (9040) - 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 (7507) - 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.

Erzengel (7420) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2015
Malty and nice beginning. Dry, fresh. Malty and round, Sweetish-malty. Hints of nuts, of caramel with not too much bitterness. Nice and solid Dunkel. Dry-malty, round, easy to drink and fresh.

Cunningham (6778) - 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.

Strykzone (6561) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Dark brown with lots of cherry red. A malty chocolate aroma. That is exactly the flavor, too. Just not a enough going on.
