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.

nuplastikk (4568) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 10, 2010
500ml bottle. Deep, thick burgundy-brown with a beige head. Fruity caramel aroma, very mellow and milkshake like. Medium bodied, with some light, watery chocolate tones. Nice and bready, very soft on the palate. Yeasty creaminess really rounds this beer out, and gives it more dimension. Love to have it fresh on tap.

Countbeer (4544) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2011
Bottle: Pours a deep dark ruby beer with a medium to bigger pretty vast and little lively light brown/light tan/creme head. Smell caramel, toasted malts, sweeter herbs, some slight hints of darker fruit like prunes, figs and raisins, some oatmeal and grains. I got the idea that the smell is a tiny teeny bit withdrawn. Taste is a very nice, smooth balanced and pretty full tasting mix of caramel, toasted grains, some hints of dark fruit like raisins, herbs, grass, soft like butter, hint of something metal, hint of some (lighty toasted) nuts. A nice bitterness and a nicely balanced mix of darker ingredients. Medium bitter, herby, dark fruits and toasted grains in the aftertaste. Low carbo, soft light tingly mouthfeel, medium to a lightly bit fuller body and a light watery/creamy texture. Nice brew.

JK (4522) - 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.

ChainGangGuy (4391) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 19, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, dark reddish-brown body marked by a few bubbles here and there. Smell: Predominately malty aroma smelling of brown sugar sprinkled of dark fruits, particularly plums and raisins, and encompassed by a slight earthiness. Taste: Oh-so malty! Mixture of brown sugar and caramel with a solid sweetness. Fair amount of fruit. Not very hoppy. Slight soil-minded earthiness. Sip of cool, clean water. Sweetish, fruit finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Very, very slight stickiness to the mouthfeel. Drinkability: Hirter? I hardly know ’er!

hotstuff (4142) - Indiana, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Bottle. Small frothy, fizzy tan head that mostly diiminished, fair amount of lacing, transparent, carbonation observed, and a reddish orange hue. Nose was moderately malty, caramel, sweet, hoppy, some chocolate, and hints of fruit. Flavor was caramel, some chocolate, fruity, malty, and sweet.Tingly mouthfeel and medium body.Quaffable, easy to drink, but there are better available of this style and I possibly would have this one again.

Marko (3966) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 10, 2007
Bottle from some Spar in Graz
Poured a dark Cockta-like red-brown colour with a medium to small sized thick beige head that went away slowly. Roasty and somewhat malty aroma.... weak hints of coffee and later on, nuts.. Pleasant taste.... a lovely note of honey, weak hoppy notes, some hints of almond, low low lemony hints, silky body, inobtrusive but quite obvious roastiness going long into the aftertaste. The best dunkel I’ve had so far.
