COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moa Noir is a traditionally brewed European style dark lager with an abundance of distinct aromas and flavours. Chocolate and richly roasted coffee beans dominate the senses with a full flavoured palate, giving Moa Noir a long smooth finish. A perfect beer for the changing of seasons.

Tasting Notes
Moa Noir is a European style dark lager / Munchner Dunkel. It is a dark brown beer with hues of red and a characteristic strong white foam. Malt dominates with chocolate, coffee and biscuit flavours apparent. Bitterness is low to emphasise malt flavours. Subtle bitterness rounds out the after taste and mouth feel. Hop aroma is minimal. Moa Noir is best served at approximately 6˚C in a pilsner glass.

Brown, fairly clear, and a thin head. . Aroma is cole and bread. Flavor is mostly cola, again, with some earthy, piney notes in the finish.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2009
Poured a dark brown with a thin short-lived off white head. Aroma was a little nutty, a little malty. Flavor was very thin. Some light roast on the front end, but then dry on the back with little to no mouthfeel. Like a really watered down porter.

guzzler67 (1553) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Deep, reddish brown appearance with a large beige head. The initially vinous aroma turned maltier as it warmed, while also providing a whiff of the yeast. Gently hopped with some soft fruit and caramel flavors that turn a little spicier in the aftertaste, giving it an almost scharzbier-like quality. Medium bodied mouthfeel with lively carbonation and an average length finish.

Pours brown. Biscuit and nutty in flavor. Slightly chocolaty. Body is lacking. Ok beer.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2009
Bottle at the Brewery. Pours dark brown with a thin tanned head. Chocolate malt, caramel, biscuit and coffee aroma and flavour. Thin and bitter mouthfeel with a light roasted finish. Not a standout but still a good beer.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - APR 7, 2009
Pours brown, small tan head. Nut and chocolate aroma. Chocolate taste but body is lacking.

DuffMan (7627) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 12, 2009
Hazy effervescent brown pour. Big bubbly head that is short-lived. Aroma is of dark caramel and corky yeast. Bitter roast is the main flavour, although it is quite weak. I get no chocolate or coffee really, but there is a yeasty quality. Finish is mildly bitter, short and dry. The body is quite thin. Lacking complexity, lacking body, this was a disappointment for me.

Butters (3946) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 11, 2009
Bottle split with the woody’s crew. Hazy mahogany pour with ring of tan head. Nose of Maple, dark berry, molassis. Flavor has a sour effect, nutty, and and malty. Not that good though. Possible infection on this one too.

donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 4, 2009
Pours deep red /brown and a tan head. Mild nutty malt aroma. A slight coffee note, and some slight fruity hop. Taste is quite roasty, nutty malt again though less of the coffee in the taste. More coffee on the finish. A dark lager with the flavours you expect.
