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.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark red-brown with a long lasting tanned head and nice lacing. Aroma is of funky yeast, bready, toasted malt and hint of hops. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is of toasted malt, toffee and earthy hops. Finish is long, slightly astringent and bitter. Good beer to try once.

Dark murky brown with a little bit of a ruby highlight, under a foamy light khaki head. Aroma had a stronger note of biscuit than I expected, but also had a light touch of cold toddie coffee with a light chocolaty graininess. Flavor was nicely subtle but still nuanced and well rounded. Smooth dark earthy toffee mixed with some biscuity yeastiness and some toast, with just a hint of earthy grainy chocolate sweetness. Overall kinda drier than I hoped, but this is a nice lager experience.

Bottle at nelson blue in pecks slip. Pour is dark brown with off white froth atop. Bet my expectations... nice malty brown ale flavor, nutty.

Rich dark color. Coffee and chocolate nose. Very elegant on the pallet, not a heavy tasting or saturated dark. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The aroma is like toasted what bread with a touch of coffee. The appearance is brown with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall this is pretty good.

Unforuntally this beer has not much flavor, there is a little bit of toasted but the rest of beer highly carbonated and pretty bland for its style. its still drinkable.

Bottle. Dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of dark caramel and coffee. Taste has some chocolate as well. A little overcarbonated, but a swirl improves things and makes the lovely head return. Dries out at the end but only a slight spiciness suggests bitterness. Not really my sort of thing.
