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.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2007
Clear bright light chestnut color with just a hint of rudy when held to the light. Moderate ecru colored head. Nice lace. LIghtly toasted malt aromas dominate with hints of cocoa and herbal hops. Somewhat simple, but no faults. Dark caramel sweetness that fades to a black malt bitterness. Quite nutty and lightly salty in the linger. Dry somewhat grassy finish. This is a nice summertime dark lager. Quenching and dry in the finish.

thedm (4924) - Fort Wayne, USA - JAN 28, 2008
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy with a frothy top fine to large sized light brown colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent typically carbonated brown colored body and a good lacing. The weak aroma was sweet and dark malt. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The thin flavor contained notes of brown malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

Strykzone (4812) - 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.

EithCubes (4724) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 30, 2007
Bottle. Sweet aroma of caramel, toffee, toast, and light fruitiness (red berry?). Deep ruby body with a lacing, neatly tanned head. Taste is predominately sweet (but nowhere near cloying), fruity and lightly sugary with caramelly malt and a few tones of dark, nutty toffee splashed on. Body is crisp from carbonation but very smooth and drinkable, medium-light in thickness. Aftertaste is toasty, very dry, and lightly hoppy. Pretty nice, a very good session.

kappldav123 (4723) - GERMANY - SEP 27, 2008
The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Week malty aroma. Tastes mild-malty, earthy-roasty. Finish fruity, like plum. Could be a bit drier. Still not bad!

presario (4594) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 29, 2007
Chicago trip. Monday 21:28+. I did spell it right! Bottle. Dark red burgundy. very light head. Scent like a lite smoked wheat. Lite smoked flavour with a hint of fruit.

JK (4352) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2011 It is hard to find a better, true-to-style central European dunkel in the midwest. Brown with a red hue. Low carbonation, and a short lived, brown head. Aroma has malt and red meat. Lots of malt in the flavor, with fresh bread and lager yeast. Very smooth, and a good, sweet finish. Rerated 10/21/2011. Score unchanged. This time, I notice sediment floating in the beer, unusual for a dunkel, but I have no problem with that.
