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.

Ughsmash (7124) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Bottle, BB 03/08. Poured clear iced tea brown with a short, creamy beige head. The aroma picked up very sweet caramel and chocolatey notes along with some pils malts. The flavor was quite sweet again, with caramel and bready notes at the core.. sweet around the edges and through the finish, where it picked up some chocolate and minerals. Lighter-bodied and all kinds of sweet on the palate.. solid for the style, but I don’t find it to be a very good style.

1FastSTi (3334) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Thanks Jason. The beer pours to a translucent medium brown body with a creamy off-white head. The aroma is full of mineral water and biscuits. Odd notes of something like buttered tobacco. The flavor is mineral water soaked tobacco and a deep caramelized sugar. Strange but fairly drinkable. Best by 03-2008.

Slayer85 (1044) - Firenze, ITALY - JUL 1, 2008
Bottled. A clear dark red beer with a huge and persistent beige foam. The aroma is overall malty, not extremely powerful, but quite nice with notes of caramel and nuts. Light roastiness. The flavour has a medium sweetness, nice bready malts with again caramel notes and some hops in the end. Light to medium body, watery texture, average/lively carbonation, short/medium finish with light bitterness. Very drinkable, but too thin body for my taste. Worth a try.

kappldav123 (4814) - 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!

Cavie (3786) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Bottle courtesy of bu11zeye. Clear orange red color that edges on ruby tint. Sweet malts with dry grain and yeast smells. Taste is a dry yeasty flavor. Very little finish but doesn’t offend.

The Morchl has a very strong aroma; it is reminiscent of carmel, grass, and bread yeast. The taste is fine, not too sweet, sour, or bitter. The body isn’t very thick, and overall I’m not fond of the palate, since palate-wise it doesn’t feel like I am drinking a beer. Nonetheless, the good aroma and flavor make this a decent, unique beer.

rondphoto (1926) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Pours medium brown with a nice head that dissipates into minimal lacing. Aroma of malt and caramel, same for flavor. Taste is nicely balanced, but not assertive. Good, not great.

Geiserich (3348) - Linz, AUSTRIA - AUG 12, 2004
Bottled:
Dark brown, with nice off-white head. Malty and full bodied. Nice because it’s not extrem sweet. Intensive notes of burnt malt and a quite bitter, dry finsih with some fruit notes. I don’t like the style, but this one is quite o.k.

The Etruscan (528) - Tuscany, ITALY - JUN 20, 2008
Beige foamy head. Mahogany colour. Aroma is malty with light roasty and bready notes. Flavor is malty too with light fruity and roasty tones, ending in a malty slightly nutty finish. Light bodied.
