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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Enjoyed this 12.7oz corked and caged bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a dark black hue with a tan-white frothy head that slowly dissipates into a solid lace leaving a nice trail down the side of glass.

S: Strong smoked malt scent with an alcoholic burn and slight pinot noir aroma.

T: Smooth smoked malt flavor with that same alcoholic burn and pinot noir flavor as the aroma – and finishes on the dry side of sweet.

M: Heavy body and medium carbonation

O: Phenomenal stout – well balanced and enough alcohol to make it interesting.
