Poured a capped 500ml bottle into my Tripel Karmeliet tulip. This beer pours a deep mahogany brown with a massive 3 inch creamy cap that leaves some pretty substantial lacing down the sides of the glass. Good start. The aroma starts off with a little overly toasted bread with just a little bit of coffee and dry mocha powder. Nice roasted aroma but fairly one dimensional. The flavor continues that line. Nice roasted flavor starts off. Toasted bread with just a little chocolate powder mixed with with this odd underlying sweetness. Not sugary per say but almost like a generic grape juice sweetness. Just a touch of ripe tree fruits. No perceivable hop presence. The mouthfeel is nice and creamy with just a bit of dryness at the finish. While I'm a huge fan of crisp, clean lagers, I feel that this one is just a bit one dimensional.

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.
