(A) Pours clean, dark brown that shines ruby in the light. Little head.
(S) There's a decent amount going on here. A lot of fruit. Figs, some banana, dark cherry, grape, chocolate and toasted malt.
(T) Raisin, roasted malts, molasses, brown sugar, fig and some dark cherries at the end.
(M) Somewhat grainy, medium body. Pretty well balanced but with a bit more on the carbonated side.
(O) Tasted a lot like a quad. It was good, but nothing out of this world. Has a really good flavor. Definitely would drink this one again.

Hirter's Morchl dumps into the glass with a handsome chestnut brown body while garnet highlights flash through when backlit. Clarity is good and carbonation runs through the entire body. A microbubbled beige head sits atop the body with a respectable cap and some stick. Lacing cakes the glass as I drink.
A deep rich toastiness permeates the entire body. Notes of soft caramel, vanilla, cream and even faint black cherries bring about an even keeled nose. Munich malt is the highlight of this beer and it's expertly utilized.
Again, the Munich malt rushes over the tastesbuds and remain after the swallow. Smooth, rich toast and caramel lead the way. The melange of black cherry, cream, and vanilla are all mild and well integrated but certainly there and together making up a decent portion of the flavor profile. The swallow leaves behind some floral hoppiness. All flavors are clean.
Morchl is a medium bodied beer with snappy carbonation. The finish is amazingly dry and appropriate leaving behind zero saliva. This is a super fresh bottle as even the bitterness grows, even though never beyond mild.
I drink this beer often on draft but I believe this is the first bottle I've ever had. It's a really enjoyable, drinkable, and affordable import. The flavor profile shows a ton of depth while staying easy drinking and fairly light. Many 1/2 liters of this has, could, and will be had by me in the future.
