On tap at the Burger Bar in Vegas.

Interesting beer to say the least. Pours kind of flat...nice jet black appearance. Nose is somewhat muted - the pinot barrel influences are about all I detect. You can definitely taste the wine barrel notes of faint grape and oak. Not sure what to make of this beer - odd would be an apt descriptor. Glad to have tried it but one is enough.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a brandy snifter, there's still plenty of head and a blanket of lace. The liquid is near black where no light passes.

The smell has plenty of dark chocolate, cocoa powder and chalk.

The taste has a lot burnt elements to it, perhaps too much so. This dominates the flavor, although the alcohol content is quite notable. The mouthfeel is as one would expect from an Imperial Stout. The aftertaste is dry cocoa and alcohol warmth.

3.81/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Had on-tap at One-Eyed Betty's in Ferndale, Michigan as part of a paddle.

Appearance: Pitch black with a miniscule, slightly tan head. Lacing is phenomenal, and my sample glass was full of it from top to bottom.

Smell: Smokey. That's what I think of when I smelled and tasted this beer... a really smokey, ashy sort of character to it that I wasn't really expecting -- I felt like this was a smoked beer. I don't KNOW if they smoke this beer, but it gave that to me, and I actually enjoyed it. A lot of ashy, smokey roasted malt smells. Despite that, this doesn't come off as burnt to me at all.

Taste/feel: A lot like the smell. It tastes very good, but it's sort of one dimensional. There's that smoky flavor with the roasted malts, but that's really it. I do love the slight bitterness of this one, and that it's not sweet or syrupy. I'd still like if Moa RIS maybe had a fruity sort of sweetness to it though, so it doesn't just drink like ashy/smoke water.

My description of this beer makes it sound pretty awful, but I think the BAs' consensus of this beer is just about spot on -- it's a good beer. It doesn't have a rich body that I think of most RIS's of having, and I don't even think that the alcohol comes through at all in any way for this beer. So if you're expecting a big, bold, rich and heavy RIS to warm you up in a foot of snow, this probably isn't the choice. For a guy like me, who tends to enjoy a good stout, but necessarily an RIS, this would be worth trying out. It has that nice smoke/ash flavor, it's easy drinking (too much so given the ABV), and I'd have it again if I wanted a smokey stout.

4.28/5  rDev +18.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Had this both on tap and in a bottle. Much better from the tap if you can find it.

Appearance-Dark brown/black with nice mocha head. Not heavy in carbonation

Smell-Woodsy, almost earths with an aroma of red wine and roasted coffee

Taste-Very similar to the aroma. Quick bite at first, probably due to the high alcohol content, slight charcoal or roasted flavor, with a full flavor and the hint of dark fruits, but does not finish bitter or heavy. Finishes more like a rich red wine.

Mouthfeel-Expected the feel to be heavy and thick, but not really. Slight carbonation and rolls easily over the tongue.

Overall-Very different when you think of an Imperial Stout. Heavy looking but deceptive and the finish is really different. A lot more flavor characteristics are noticed from the tap rather than the bottle. Really good if you want a "Hey, this is really different" type of beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

On tap at Local Taphouse as part of the Moa Tap Takeover. From notes.

A - Poured pitch black with no visible carbonation with a big fluffy two finger brown head. Decent retention with a full finger and spots of lace.

S - Lot's of sweet chocolate and red wine.

T - Strong vinous character was there with lot's of chocolate and a slight alcohol ting. The barrel is quite noticable.

M - Gentle carbonation with really full silky body and a grope-style finish of dryness.

O/D - An interesting imperial stout. Not complex, but the elements are nailed. Barrel seems to have really impacted this, almost taking away from other flavours that would pull through. Worth a shot for a different barrel character.

3.84/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Yields two fingers of dark brown foam, dense on the whole but there’s larger bubbles interspersed here and there, retention is very nice, even surface, the lacing is more large splotches than streaks. Clean black liquid, buffed to a high shine, you can just make out a few steady streams of bubbles against the glass sides, no hint of orange nor yellow at rims, glass bottom. The nose is slightly muted, has a slight vinous quality but mainly it casually delivers milk chocolate, anise, vanilla bean and plum to black cherry fruit, no real hops presence, however, does not over depend on sweetness for effect, as it warms you get campfire smokiness. Medium-bodied, very smooth with velvety carbonation, zero prickle. Loads its weight and flavors upfront and glides from there. Here the oaky toast and smoke more pronounced, notes of grilled meats, earth and that same campfire thing. Restraint shown in the milk chocolate, vanilla, caramel and café au lait flavors. On the dry side, stays balanced and more clean than puckering. Any fruit is cherry, black raisin, fig, minimal lingering sweetness. Clay, iron and damp earth stick around most through the finish. Here the Pinot Noir influence not so much.

Pours a very dark black with a brownish white thin head, decent retention.

I smell lots of alcohol here, and chocolate, and coffee, and molasses. Lots of molasses actually, maybe too much.

Very malty and molasses tasting, some very strong alcohol undertones, malty sweetness, burnt toast and coffee taste.

Very delicious, definitely worth a try, but not something I would buy again. Definitely a sipper.

Very nice beer from Moa - great beer to finish the night with or to accompany a dessert.

aroma: chocolate, coffee and woody/spicy/chocolate liquorice

taste: oak, wine, chocolate, coffee and spice. A nice chocolate aftertaste. However, felt a touch thin in the mouth.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Tasted 24 March 2014.

Pours dark brown, clear about halfway from the edges. One finger of medium brownish tan head. Okay retention, not much lacing.

Smell is... weird. Turns out pinot noir and stout maybe don't mix so well. The pinot brings this airy red grape sense, the for me clashes with what I can detect of the stout. That's mostly a little bit of roast, not as much richness or depth as I'd like.

Taste is even weirder. It's kinda like it's soured, but I think that's just the oddity of the stout and the pinot noir train wreck. Sharp on all the edges, tannic, mildly charry bitter. Not good.

Feel is okay, but pretty darn light for an imperial stout. It's also slick, and lacking carbonation that might give some life to those stagnant flavors.

Sounded interesting, but I should have passed this one by. Nothing good comes out of it, IMO.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Bottle pour into st bernardus watou chalice..
Looks richly dark coffee brown active and spritzy for a barrel aged at 10.25%. Young pour as this is a new batch, yet I believe this beer is nice with the red fruit pinot and grape leaf bitterness on the tounge and nose. Strong alcohol presence.This is very dry, chocolate malts here with raisin, plum, and cherry on the nose; interesting blend of dark fruit flavours and vibrant berry like flavor. The barrel is carrying this beer through for me. Resiny dark chocolate and earthy front; boozey, fruity, pinot is a nice touch. A bit boozey and stringent bite upfront, hardly a complaint on the finish..Mouthfeel is medium to moderate heavy, carbonation is Medium. drinks a lot like a quad to me..Suprisingly not too sweet, since the wine balances the heavy booze with nice red fruit sour note.Toungue is coated now with pinot and woodsy oak. A good 3-5 hrs sitting on this one should increase the qualities of this beer.. I would appreciate this with black truffles, meats with horesradish and lemon(parsy/dill/fresh herbs), sweet-breads.

MOA – Barrel Aged Stout (10.2%) - Moa Brewing Company (New Zealand)
☆☆½

App: Black pour with a serious three finger head that is way off for the style. Bottle seemed a little over carbed when opened. Allowed to settle and warm for nearly 20 minutes. Head is thick and creamy and very dark, with a sort of tawny brown color. Head retains like crazy, wish it would settle so I could drink the damned thing. Lacing is high and sticky with individual bubbles visible.

Smell: Smell is very strong on the barrel, with a significant woodiness and a twinge of acetic. Some dark roasted malt aromas come through, but are nearly hidden under the barrel aromas. Some very basic hints of dried fruit. As head settles, alcohol volatility becomes apparent.

Taste: Whoa. This beer is just absolutely overflowing with complexity. Fore taste is very sweet, and allowed to sit on the palate opens up into an impressive milk chocolate and plum-skin tartness that is very pleasant. Continues to its third act with a touch of roasty dryness that fights hard agains the sweetness and the alcohol. Dryness looses out, and alcohol is very apparent. Frankly a little hot, more akin to wine (which I don't usually expect in a 10pt stout). My hypothesis is that this bottle had a little extra sugar and was shipped/stored warm, increasing the ABV to around 11.5 (an estimate). Some really nice dark notes on the aftertaste.

Mouth: Totally overcarbed, a little too lingering in its sweetness, and the presence of the alcohol is drying my mouth out. All totally against style and very detrimental to overall impression.

Home tasting, 12.7oz bottle (Half Pour) into Snifter.

Very good, dark brown to black colour with a creamy tan head. Decent retention.

Mild aroma with notes of roast and coffee. Light tart fruitiness in the background from the Pinot Noir barrels.

Rounded roast flavour. The oak and fruity wine notes work.

Good carbonation here and the medium body.

A nice take on the style by Moa. The flavours could be aided by a slightly mope robust base beer with a bit more mouthfeel.

This looked pretty interesting for a not too expensive BA Imp Stout in Pinot barrels, esp something from as far as New Zealand. I remember enjoying a lot of their beers at The Festival.

The pour had no sediment at the bottom of the bottle so it's gotta be filtered, and not as bottle conditioned as I thought, but pours a really nice fluffy slight airy 1 finger darker colored head fades semi slowly with tons of lacing, over an almost pitch black colored beer with touch of molasses brown light sneaking through the bottom of the stem.

Nose brings nice dark malts, some dark choc and powdered cocoa, lots of caramel, dusty powdered cocoa like, little black malt and mild malted milk ball, plenty of caramel and fluffy nougat, really candy like, faint hint of raisin too with the slightest vinous like note, and little coffee perhaps, and slight touch of vanilla barrel.

Taste starts with more dark black malts, cocoa, dark choc, mild black malt and dry acrid roast, hint of coffee with that, into little dry powdered cocoa. Then caramel and fluffy nougat, more candy bar, mild lactose powder, very very dry all around. Mild warming booze starts creeping up and gets fairly hot towards teh finish. As my mouth gets acclimated to the heat and lots of dark malts and cocoa, a hint of a raisiny flavor that's almost like dried grape and vinous qualities comes through, and mild barrel char note. Some earthy spicy hop bitterness ramps up too, and gets fairly bitter overall. Finish is very dry as it started, not sticky or syrupy either, more powdered cocoa and dark choc, bitter earthy spicy hops come through, and a little char and roasted flavors lingering... very late on the flavor is a small hint of actual pinot like mild wine flavor.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, fluffy carb, mild warming booze that gets a little hot as it goes.

Overall not bad, nice dark malts, roasted and black malts hint at acrid char but don't get over bearing, I wish the barrel came through a little more, but hints of a rasiny dried grape are present, booze is OK but a little warm overall. Still not a bad beer at all.

2.5/5  rDev -30.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5

Corked and caged 12.7oz bottle from Hop City (Atlanta, GA). 6.79. Best by 7/6/15, I assume bottled 7/6/13. Served in a Sweetwater snifter.

Pours a datk tea brown with an eighth finger pale tan head. Persistent thin halo and very little lace.

Smells strongly of wine with other notes of oak, dark roast coffee and an almost sour apple.

Right off the bat the strongest flavor is that red wine. Burnt coffee, oak, cocoa, vanilla, apple, caramel and a hearty alcohol burn. Not all bad but astringent and disjointed.

Fairly creamy, medium thin body with sharp carbonation. Bitter coffee, wine and apple skins in the aftertaste.

While it does improve as it warms, this just doesn't suit my tastes. The pinot noir aging adds an interestingly different element but it's neither complimentary nor does the base beer seem hearty enough for a barrel treatment to begin with. All-around unimpressive.

Bottle from Colonial Spirits.
Pours a solid dark brown/black color with a decent sized creamy off white head that persists forever. Smells of chocolate and caramel with a light roastiness and a hint of vanilla. Dark pitted fruits and a bit of grape skin round out the nose. This smells more like a sweet or a milk stout than an imperial. The flavor is lots of caramel and chocolate maltiness with bits of vanilla and pitted fruits.There is a vinous component and a hint of wood and alcohol as this warms. Medium to thick body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a creamy smooth mouthfeel. Not exactly what I was thinking of when I bought this but it was a nice sipper just the same.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Thick pour gives me a black colored beer with a small brown colored head.

Scents of chocolate and fruit the wine scent is easy to find. Scents of raspberry and faint mint.

Starts out heavy on the patent malt and a bit smoky. Dry wine flavor taste more like Grappa. Semisweet with some coffee flavors, but mostly I taste mountains of patent malt. One of the more heavily charred of the imperial stouts.

Mouthfeel is thick.

Overall this is just an average stout. Wine barrel does little for this beer type, they should use whiskey or rum barrels instead.

From notes.

Poured from a 12.7oz corked and caged bottle into a snifter

A: Pours an opaque coffee-black. Wispy tan head and minimal lacing.

S: Bittersweet chocolate dominates the aroma, along with some roasted notes, plum, and wood.

T: Similar to the aroma it is chocolate forward. Also some notes of cappuccino and a little bit of smoke. Just a touch of red fruit. Alcohol adds a bit of fusel bite that is not quite entirely hidden under the thick malt. The pinot provides some tartness near the finish.

M: Relatively thin for an imperial stout. Lightly carbonated.

O: A decent beer, but a little unbalanced. The bitter, roasted notes in combination with the alcohol are a little sharp. While the wine barrel character is certainly there, it is obscured by the heavy malt. Could have done with either great vinous character or a sweeter, less pointed malt flavor.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

12.7 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a crazy three finger head that finally reduced to a thin layer and left some lacing on the glass. It is a pitch black color with no clarity or bubbles seen coming up through the glass.

Smell: Oak, chocolate, pinot noir grapes, toasted malts, a little booze, toasted malts, and a little smoke.

Taste: Smoke, ash, pinot grapes, oak, chocolate, bready grains, and a little booze. The grapes taste and smoke mask the normal chocolately and warm booze. Wait a bit and things taste better on the palate.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, full bodied, low carbonation, bitter ash, a little booze, a little chewy, a little dry, and oakey.

Overall: I like the take of this style in pinot noir barrels. The character of the barrels rounds and softens the normal characteristics we all look for. Let the beer warm up a bit and take another sip, those flavors we expect are subtlety their. Very good price for a 375 ml.

a: After reading all of these reviews mentioning what a gusher this was, I cautiously took this outside to open, but the bottle opened with barely audible pop. I couldn't coax much of a head out of this one.

s: Plenty of grape and some charred maltiness, a hint of wood as well. Pretty subdued overall.

t: Lots more going on than the smell suggested. Deeply roasted, almost charcoal malts with hints of chocolate up front. Somewhat tart wine joined in and the two elements worked pretty well together. The finish is what I liked the most though. Toasty wood and a lingering vinous flavor paired with a hint of tobacco.

m: Thin and a bit still.

o: These reviews are all over the place. There must be significant batch variation. I'm glad I got a good one. Falvor wise, this was pretty much exactly what I hoped it would be.

Lovely half size corked and caged bottle that retails for about $6. This was a very nuanced RIS that was much smoother than expected yet not giving up any complexity in the finish. The nose was also very redolent of chocolate and coffee thought the barrel aging did show a bit as the beer warmed up. Impressed by this beer and that fact that a bottle is not an arm and a leg ( and it came all the way from New Zealand).
