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.

12.7oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours deep brown with a fluffy, cream-colored head. Aroma of caramel and nutty malts, a little bread and dough, and some floral hops. Flavor the same with a nice balance. Average texture. A pretty good beer for the style.

375ml bottle. Cola colour with a large thick tan foam blanket. Looks like a glas of cola and is levely and well carbonated. Aromas of roasted coffee beans and chocolate dominate with burnt toffee and nalt flavours folowing. Smooth finish and light in the mouth.

Cybercat (4085) - Georgia, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Pours a slightly hazy warm brown with a decent, if not persistent, pale tan head. Aroma is malty and just slightly nutty, not strong but still inviting. Flavor is malty with nutty and hoppy hints - not wonderful, but enjoyable nevertheless. Texture is smooth and fizzy, leaving a bit of a tingle behind, along with a hint of hops.

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.
