COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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 (37598) - 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.

[email protected] Deep copper colour, small off-white creamy head. Aroma is floral, some grassy and herbal notes along with some toasted malts. Flavour is herbal, grassy, mild ashes, toffee and some mild floral notes. Surprisingly tasty, but not your typical dunkel...

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2008
(Bottle 37,5 cl) Pours a warm and almost clear amber golden with a neat and lively off-white head. Lightly burned malt in the aroma. Medium body with a very lively carbonation. Roasted malty accents and some nuts. Dry and lightly bitter finish. Mostly reminds me of a Brown Ale. 250308

Oakes (17676) - 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.

[email protected] Dark brown color, small beige head. Chocolate, malts in the aroma. Active carbonation, medium-bodied.  A bit vegetably, chocolate  So and so, some disturbing flavors. Aroma is good.
