L - dark, but translucent dark dark purple to black

S- Roasted with a HUGE bouquet of wine grapes, smells like a wine aged in beer barrels

T- similar to smell, huge must notes and hearty red wine flavors

F- effervescent is the only word that comes to mind. incredibly light mouthfeel for an "imperial" stout, and I mean that in the best way possible

O- doesn't seem to be a crowd favorite, but this is one of my all time favorite brews. Everytime i see it I buy as much as possible

Moa Imperial Stout has a medium, creamy, beige head, and a very dark brown or black appearance, with lots of thick lacing left behind. The aroma is a mix of dark, sweet cherries and a dark-roasted malt. The flavor is strongly fruity, sweet, roasted, dark malts, and bitterness. Quite bitter. There is even a smoked aspect to this. Mouthfeel is heavy, and Moa Imperial Stout finishes dry, super rich, and pleasant. The alcohol is not present in the taste, but does show up in a strong way in the brain after a few sips. This is one to have! I rate it most excellent.
