Moa Noir

Hazy, reddish-brown pour with a small one finger head and very little lace or retention.
Nose and tastes are simple and slightly nutty. In that respect the first impression of this beer are much more in the brown ale area of things rather than as a dark lager. As things progress (warm), the beer does take on some cleaner and more bitter edges and the malt sweetness fades somewhat.
There is no doubt that there is a degree of bakers chocolate in the tastes in addition to a touch of cocoa. A pretty dry beer considering the malt content. Chocolate actual builds quite a bit over the course of the bottle
Quite full in the mouth, the beer is very smooth and leaves a slight coating on the tongue and teeth.
Mildly interesting distraction but not one that I would seek out again.
