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°

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

pivnizub (10306) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2008
Bottle (diky, Quack-Ducku !): Deep ruby-amber coloured with a quite persistent, fluffy beige head; moderate to stronger, dryish roast-malty nose with a sweet caramelly background; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied; solid caramelly, but mainly dry roast-malty finish. A fine, fine Dunkel, absolutely not cloying.................

Fin (9911) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2012
Had this at Elferhaus, Innsbruck 31.05.12 Pours reddy brown with good clarity and a light tan head. Very soft and smooth in the mouth, quite subtle compared to a typical German Dunkel. Some caramel and a little bitterness are the underpinning characteristics of this beer. A little mushroomy on the nose, fruity (dark fruits) with a slight tanginess. Good but no great shakes.

KyotoLefty (9640) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 20, 2008
Bottle in Vienna, 2006. Very dark brown, almost opaque. Good head. Faint aroma, a hint of roasted malt and caramel. Tastes more burnt and coffee-like than any other Austrian dark I have tried to date. A dark lager, but somewhat stout-like. Only slightly sweet, not a whole lot of hops either, but well balanced. Great malt.
