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°

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.

Bottle at Krah, Krah in Vienna on our honeymoon. Pours a copper brown with a tall beige head. Aroma is very light. Bready doughy and bakers chocolate. Chocolate toasted flavors. Slightly burnt and biscuity. drying with bakers chocolate that lingers with an oaky earthiness. Nice balance of roast/toast/chocolate/sweetness/earthiness/oak. T beer.

Pours with a medium head, nice and fluffy. That fades into a decently thick lacing which grows easily as the glass is agitated. Color is clear ruby brown. Aroma is lagered berries and light, clean caramel lagered malts. Works well, the aromas bounce off of each other. Some light earthy/herbal German hops peaking through there as well. Taste has a bit more clean malt sweetness with a light mineral water and hop presence. The mineral aspect makes it super easy to drink. Just goes down easy with no thick or overbearing aspects. Light nutty sweetness tickles the aftertaste senses. Nothing alone is remarkable but it all comes together very nicely. Just so damn drinkable.
500mL bottle, BB 11/2009, in a generic white wine glass.

mmmm, very nice beer! Got this bottle at Sam’s in Chi a couple of weeks ago. Poured with a huge, textured, foamy, and frothy tan head and lots of lace. Color is a nice dark walnut. Aroma is malty with toffee and mild. Flavor is similar with some lurking sweetness. Great body with fine carbonation and soft mouth goes very well with flavor. Nice easy finish. Session beer.
