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.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2009
Bottle at the Brewery. Pours dark brown with a thin tanned head. Chocolate malt, caramel, biscuit and coffee aroma and flavour. Thin and bitter mouthfeel with a light roasted finish. Not a standout but still a good beer.

Pours brown. Biscuit and nutty in flavor. Slightly chocolaty. Body is lacking. Ok beer.

Suttree (6537) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Brown, fairly clear, and a thin head. . Aroma is cole and bread. Flavor is mostly cola, again, with some earthy, piney notes in the finish.

Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 13, 2010
12.7 ounce bottle from The Libation Station in Johnson City, TN. Pours a dary hazy brown color with a large brown frothy head. Fair head retention and lacing. A bit of skunk when the bottle is first opened which dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma of sweet malts with a hint of dark fruits. Taste is bitter malts, some graininess, faint raisins and VERY faint chocolate. Thin-medium bodied.

The aroma is like toasted what bread with a touch of coffee. The appearance is brown with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall this is pretty good.

A fairly nice drop. I got my 330ml bottle from Rumbles - it was the last one there. It smelt of caramel to me. I think I may have served it a bit cold as there wasn’t much head but I did like the colour and taste. I found it creamy and pleasantly soft in the mouth. Wifey agreed with me that it was better than the Herold Bohemian Black Lager that we tried at the same time and that it was really too expensive to go back to in a hurry.

2.8
Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 5, 2007
Bottle at the 2007 Aussie Summer Gathering: Brown amber with some rusty tinting in the light beneath a short-lived head. In the nose slightly wheaty tones lie beneath some fruity hop and yeast notes. Flavours of toasty grains dominate with some pleasant biscuity notes and a slightly annoying orange tang. I found this to be a bit thin. Even if nicely done overall it just didn’t have any standout flavours.
