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.

Ungstrup (29281) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2008
Bottled. An unclear dark amber beer with a lazing orangey head. The aroma is sweet malty with hints of caramel. The flavor is has grassy notes of hops, cardboard, malt, and caramel, leading to a bitter finish. The body is thin. Thanks Papsoe for hauling this home to Denmark and sharing.

Oakes (12514) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2009
Dark brown. A bit murky-looking. Interesting nose - dark toffee/molasses thing is promising. This character carries through on a medium body. At the end, there is some toastiness.
