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.

Poured a dark heavy brown. Nose of roasted malt. No hints at all of PInot Noir and why the hell would one use barrels from what everyone knows is one of the lightest red wines. Man up and use Cab or Zin.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours back with dark tan head. Aroma of dark roasted grain, dark chocolate with a red wine note. Favor is much the same, malty and as a woody finish and big dark roast bitterness. Heavy mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Solid brew!

emacgee (4674) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Ok, first off. Explosive bottle. Blew the cork and cage off and poured with a profuse amount of carbonation/head. 2 to 3 fingers of fizzy chestnut tan head. Always a good sight.... Hard to pick out the nose, some charred wood and light coffee roast with a touch of alcohol and fruit skins. Lightly vinous with some dark fruit. and booze. Nice enough but not too crazy. Needs body and less carbonation Nice though

r464 (2360) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Huge, foamy tan head over a dark color. Roasty, toasty, smooth. Cocoa, coffee, toast, with a sweet dark malt. Very nice. Full, but the alcohol is well masked.

robforbes (2238) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - DEC 9, 2012
pours a pitch black with an extremely large head, lots of carbonation, and good lacing. smell is of cocoa, some smoke, and a bit of red wine. taste is of licorice, beef jerky, cocoa, sour malt, and wood. ends a little sour.

llcooldave (1212) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Pours a very black in the glass. Huge dark roasted malt aroma. Some dark cocoa followed by a slight coffee liquer aftertaste. Overall, a very "hearty brew"... Delicious!

Daniehac (8) - SINGAPORE - DEC 6, 2012 does not count
Plenty of wows all around. Dark Chocolate and coffee notes dominate. Excellent flavour and strength. Bitterness and mouthfeel is just right. As a stout I couldn't ask for more, one of the best I've ever had. Would definitely drink again, and again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2012
375, corked and baled. Pours jet black with a dense, creamy, and lasting tan head. Mild chocolatey roasty flat chalky nose. Soft rounded body like a cask ale. Pleasant neutrality from the chalkiness. Chocolate, chalk, and soft roast show through, with a pleasantly light chocolatey finish. The wine doesnt really make much of an impression overtly, but the softness and roundness are definitely there from it.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Bottle. Black with a thick foamy tan head. Musty grain, sweet chocolate, red wine, oak, and some funky sour fruit notes. Good velvety creamy palate. Tastes of citrus, chocolate, sour grape, red wine and oak. Good.

Ibrew2or3 (8607) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 1, 2012
35.8cl corked and caged bottle pours deep darkness with a big tall three inch light mocha colored head of foam. The modest aroma offers up mineral notes, blunted dark roasted malts, burnt malts and then a touch of dark fruity esters. The taste has dark roasted malts heading into some chocolate and mineral notes that are punctuated by above average carbonation. It then gains flavors like a bit of sweet dark fruity esters and then yeasty Belgian candi sugar into the finish.
