Venue: BrewSmith HQ – via McCoppin’s Richmond
Moa Brewing’s beer listing page
Ideal time and place: A musky library that smells of rich mahogany.
Goes great with: A bit of poetry.
Two Best Things about this Beer:
-A unique spicy, herbally, earthy taste.
Two weaknesses of this beer:
-It smells like a Belgian, so you’ll need to hold your nose
-Can’t think of another
This is a combination of way too many flavours to describe accurately. There is the characteristic Moa ‘hearty muskiness’ as I call it, from the mid boil hopping. This matches up nicely with the carbonation to produce a citrusy bite. Then of course the plummy flavours from the heavy malt load combine to produce something that’s pretty overwhelming and tasty.
I give it 2 thumbs up. It’s worth your time.
P.S., sorry for forgetting to take a photo. 9.5% beers will do that to you
