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.

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.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 3, 2007
Clear dark brown with a large beige head that didn’t really last. A weak milk chocolate aroma with some vegemite toast and something fruity and chalky that somehow reminds me of, I think, Boynton’s Ale. Sweet and bitter, but unbalanced and combined with the excessive fizz it’s a bit of a battle in the mouth. Strange aftertaste that has me thinking of steamed carrots. I really want to like these guys after my first bottle of their lager was great, but it’s been all down hill since with skunked bottles and weird flavours.

CapFlu (4370) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 28, 2013
(750ml bottle) Purchased at Hillside. Pours a brown, creamy head atop a black body. Nose of nothing. Very highly carbonated and slightly sour. Not terribly complex and somewhat disappointing for this brewery. --- reviewed on RateBeer.com

Dark black in colour with huge toffe coloured head. Chocolate flavours. Had big expectations but was let down.

eczematic (1307) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 15, 2007
A big disappointment. dark brown with quite a bit of thick black sediment (don’t know how good they are at disgorging at this place?!) and with a brief volcanic eruption of off white head. aroma assaults you with acetaldehyde - along with the chocolate malt this puts me in the mind of outback black opal. in the mouth extremely dry and quick with nothing more than a thin roastiness, finishing with yeast and green apple. astringent, fizzy, thin and a totally unnecessary addition to the brewing world - a big let down from the other two.
