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°

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2012 This is one of my favorite beers. It is best on tap. Very good aroma and taste. Goes great with a pizza.

An exceptional dunkel. Dark brown, light roasted body. Easy drinking with a sweet aftertaste. Tried with Jess at the Grunauer in KC in 2014.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2015 0,5l bottle. Yes thats probably the best Dunkles you can get in Austria. Outstanding drinkability for a Dunkles. Edit: I had this beer several times in the last months and it is still growing. I really like the light roasty aroma and taste, followed by a bittersweet finish. For sure the best Dunkles I had so far.

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.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours reddish brown with a tan head. Taste carmel, nut, sweet. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured into a tall 0.5 liter glass stein. Copper to brown colored with two fingers of fluffy off-white head. Rich smelling malt, pepper, barley and slight citrus. Rich tasting also. Sweet and malty, a bit chewy, almost no carbonation, and a touch of bitter. At the end it has a watery taste where the dominate flavors quickly fall off. Very enjoyable. Looks amazing and smelled and tasted great. Tough to beat.

Probably the best beer... No, it´s not. But it is a very, very good dark beer. Caramel and fruits. And also nice to look at with a big head. I should have bought some bottles back home.
