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.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2010
[Tap] Pours a solid dark brown color with a cream colored head. Cocoa, dark malts and vanilla in the nose. Lots of roasted dark malt in the flavor, with lesser amounts of milk chocolate, sweet molasses, caramel and dusty grains in the nose. Better than expected body, with a rich/full mouthfeel. Creamy and sweet lingering finish. Well made and very easy to drink.

A fine Austiran dunkel. It is sweet and malty, but super drinkable. notes of cocoa and subtle hosp adorn the tongue.

EtTuCthulhu (1036) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - FEB 15, 2013
The color of the beer is a reddish brown with a thick off-white head, and the aroma is strongly of roasted chocolate malts, fig, and dough. The taste is mildly sweet and slightly umami, but the palate fuses a soft carbonation, an astringent yet abrupt finish, medium body, and a creamy texture.

Dark colored with light tan head. It has some chocolated taste with hint of roasted coffee and some caramel maltness. Very drinkable because of light body. It’s tastes really nice.

0,5l bottle. Dark brown/black color with thick beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is toasted malt, caramel, chocolate and hint of dark fruits. Taste is toffee, toasted malt and some fruits. Medium body with soft carbonation. Overall it’s quite decent dunkel.

Colore nero con riflessi marroni, una schiuma fine e persistente, al naso si sente malto tostato e note di caffč, uguale in bocca con un leggerissimo amaro nel finale, media carbonazione con un corpo medio

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - OCT 2, 2006
From a 500 ml. euro brown bottle with a best before date, 20.12.06, on the back label. Poured a deep Coke Cola brown with a small off-white/beige head that settled into a thin lacing. Aromas of toasted grains and roasted coffee malts with a light fruitiness. Moderate carbonation and a crisp, slick and smooth medium-light bodied mouthfeel. Very tasty, a sweet caramel toffee and a roasted coffee, a soft fruitiness, a light spiciness from the hops, a little caramelized sugary towards the end and a sweet roasted malty finish. I didn’t know what to expect when I picked this up, but this dunkel lager was flavorful and well balanced, quite quaffable.

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 23, 2006
This poured with a dark brown and garnet high lighted body. The head was a medium khaki and clung to the glass. Pancakes, caramel and some almonds made for a rich nose. The taste had some caramel with iced tea. There was also a hint of nice milk chocolate in the finish. A smooth and slick body help to make this a nice session brew. A pretty good dunkel.

Marko (3922) - 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.
