COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes
Moa Imperial Stout is a very strong, bold upfront and rich offering of a famous beer style. Aged with French Oak, this beer not only displays coffee and mocha charters but also some sweet and spicy notes. A tannin like finish and an oak induced mellow bitterness makes it a serious stout. Moa Imperial Stout is best served just below room temperature in a tulip glass.

375 ml corked bottle. Black pour with a thinish texture and light pinch of brown head that leaves little bubbles fades pretty fast. Big roast sweet smell, bits of candied sugar. Tast is nice and roasty up front with a very smooth/hoppy finish. Not much Pinot barrel but gawddamn this is smooth and drinkable.

stantheman (1098) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle from Central City Liquor Store in Surrey. Thick, black and oily, with a bit of tan head. Chocolate on the nose. Heavily roasted malts, yielding impressions of coffee and chocolate. Dark rich goodness with every sip!

wlajwl (7076) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Aroma is dark malts, coffee, light chocolate and a hint of fruit. The flavor is dark roasted malts, dark fruit, mild earthiness, slightly sticky/oily and a mild/medium acidic/alcoholic finish.

Poured from a cold bottle. Dark brown color, huge frothy tan head. Phenolic smell. Full body alcohol sweet roasted malt flavor with a phenolic quality and a fairly bold finish.

Luvystypotables (2071) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Dark chocolate colour with a great head, lots of lacing. Sweet malt and phenols in the aroma. Tastes like band aids. and smoked malt, with a phenolic palate.

3.9
degbert (1776) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours very heavily and oily; utterly opaque black with a brown, thick, fine-grained, almost gelid head. Nose is port wine, oak, smoke, and fresh-ground coffee. Very rich and solid on the tongue -- baking chocolate, ginger, molasses, red wine, and glace viande notes take center stage. Round and rich. A meaty, beefy stout, and a damned good one.

XaenDovet (1281) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle. Deep, dark brown. Had to slop it in the glad to get any cap. Once that happened, it was a dense, tan cap that laced heavily. Aroma is huge coffee, dark chocolate, prune, and vanilla. Terrific smell. Taste boasts the coffee and chocolate, with trailing candied dark fruit blend. Pleasant finish of medium carbonation and a lingering, highly dry note.

3.4
Gription79 (2892) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Poured from a 375ml bottle. Chocolate, bitter dark chocolate, ash, leather. This smells oxidized, I think it is the barrel. This is very dry.
