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 (4981) - 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.

nuplastikk (4971) - 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.

JK (4865) - 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.

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.

Very dark, loads of caramel roasted malt. Not outstanding, but easy to drink and have a session on it.

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 11, 2006
Bottle 0,5l. Brown colour. A lasting white head. Some chocolate notes. A bit on the sweet side, but not extreme. Well balanced.

ChainGangGuy (4494) - 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!

wlajwl (4449) - 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.

hotstuff (4393) - 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.

.5 Liter. Austrian Dark Malt Liquor. Reddish-brown color. Aroma of rich malt. Raisins. Smells like a Bock. Flavor is a sweet malt. Very balanced. Finishes with a raisin water taste. 13 sept 08
