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°

thedm (5282) - 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.

heemer77 (5217) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 23, 2006
This poured with a dark brown and garnet high lighted body. The head was a medium khaki and clung to the glass. Pancakes, caramel and some almonds made for a rich nose. The taste had some caramel with iced tea. There was also a hint of nice milk chocolate in the finish. A smooth and slick body help to make this a nice session brew. A pretty good dunkel.

teorn88 (5159) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2010
50cl bottle. Pours a cloudy brown color with a medium beige head. Aroma is strong and complex: Lots of malty sweetness, caramel, toffee, roasted notes, coffee and chocolate. Taste is similar with coffee, chocolate, roasted notes and hints of spicies. Medium/full bodied with good carbonation. Excellent brew.

JPDIPSO (5153) - 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.

wlajwl (5063) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 16, 2011
In aroma this is very heavy on the toffee and caramel, a good sign. The flavor is similar to the aroma with a good palate. Among the best dunkels out there.

kaser (4922) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Pours dark but not black, can see through it. Big bottle at Solstice. Smells like tar, oil, nutty. Weird. Thick palate. Seems bland but I think it tastes how it is supposed to. Not my favorite but I appreciate it

presario (4901) - 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.

Bottle in Alpbach. Dark brown body with sizeable head. Malty, quite sugary nose. Taste is sweet, dark fruits, caramel. Somewhat watery, but nice.
