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°

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.

Nostalgic aroma of a 4H barn at the state fair. Easy drinking sweet and dusky flavor.

Bottle. Strong nose of licorice and soy sauce which initially dominates. The flavour mellows once it warmed up and had chocolate, licorice, soy, dark fruits and pudding. Sweet mouthfeel. A sort of love-hate relationship with this one. It really opened up and changed in the glass. Interesting beer.

mross (169) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - APR 15, 2010
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a stable light brown head. Sweet malt, licorice, molasses, coffee, light chocolate and soy sauce aroma. The flavour has a very big soy sauce taste to it with sweet malt and coffee also present. As it warmed it then took on more complexity and signs of more chocolate, caramel and raisins. The soy sauce character was then not as intense. Very complex and not unpleasant but at first a little too much soy for my liking. It then did a back-flip and became really enjoyable. Need to remind myself not to drink this so chilled if I come across this again. Very interesting and complex dunkel.

Drank from the bottle, unfortunately didn’t have a cup to pour into so I couldn’t properly assess aroma or color. Tastes smooth, if not a bit light. Hints of malt, dark fruit and caramel. Good mouthfeel, not great but good.

Dark amber, small tan head, clear. Aromas of malt predominate, with a bit of dark fruit and hops - kind of like a german bock. Taste is light - almost a bit too light, seems a bit watery - and fairly sweet, small amount of bitterness. This is a good lager that could be very good with a bit more malt.

Bottle in Alpbach. Dark brown body with sizeable head. Malty, quite sugary nose. Taste is sweet, dark fruits, caramel. Somewhat watery, but nice.

Reddish-brown pour with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, sweet dark fruit. taste is like the aroma, leaving a nice sweet aftertaste, malty. Tasty beer at a affordable price.

I drank a liter of this stuff at Lachet’s in Chicago. Good times. It’s a dunkel fairly standard for the style and just a nice, drinkable lager. Munich malt character was perhaps not as strong as it should be but had a certain raisiny malt character that was pleasant none the less with a gentle bitterness to round things out. Held up really well to smoked pork and sauerkraut.
