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.

Decent dunkel with moderate depth of flavor, thin mouthfeel, and moderate bitterness. Nothing outstanding about it though.

500ml bottle. Pours a medium creamy white head. Colour is treacle black. Aroma of ginger and peat. Taste is spicy with some orange and gingerbread. Slight coffee aftertaste. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Carbonation is medium to heavy. An interesting take on the dunkelbier style, a very spicy, enjoyable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

la Morchl è una dunkel che ritengo ottima da bere sui pasti. Il colore è marrone molto scuro e la schiuma è compatta e persistente il giusto. Aroma di malto tostato, confermato al palato, dove il cioccolato e il caffè si aggiungono leggeri ma evidenti a dare un sapore molto gradevole. Complessivamente il gusto è dolce, pulito e fresco, il luppolo resta solo un vago sentore durante la bevuta. La consistenza è leggera, corpo minimo quindi è bevibilissima, e anche la carbonazione è medio-bassa.

Malty and nice beginning. Dry, fresh. Malty and round, Sweetish-malty. Hints of nuts, of caramel with not too much bitterness. Nice and solid Dunkel. Dry-malty, round, easy to drink and fresh.

Pours dark brown with tiny light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel and floral/fruity hops. Taste is sweet - Fruity caramel, with dry and sligthly dry / sweet finish. Medium body, soft carbonation and bitterness. Drinkable, but not superlative.

Ughsmash (7387) - 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.

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 (1051) - 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.
