COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moat Water is a stout brewed with lactose and Skatepart of Tampaís own moat water, then aged with coffee, vanilla beans and Canadian maple wood veneers. As for the flavor... think All You Can Eat chocolate chip pancakes and bottomless coffee. Itís appearance is dark, just like your future if you dare to partake in the infamous Moat Race during Skatpark of Tampaís legendary Tampa AM and Tampa PRO.

Oct 25, 2012 edition Bottle to Stone IRS tulip. I actually said "wow" as I poured this. Itís much thicker than I thought with a consistency reminiscent of used motor oil. Not much head and no visible carbonation with a swirl, the liquid briefly stains the glass similarly (but not as heavily) as Marshal Z. Big coffee and potting soil aroma. Again, wow. Very flavorful. Strong brewed coffee, dark chocolate syrup, and bourbon vanilla extract. Pretty clean finish except for a little lingering coffee bitterness, vanilla essence, and a touch of oxidation.

Happy birthday rbrazell. Deep black pour dark tan head, how does CCB get that color. Coffee and vanilla aroma roasted character slightly sweet malt. Coffee mocha vanilla and roasted malt taste. Good mouth feel. Very balanced and enjoyable. I could drink a lot of this.

daknole (9114) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Big dark pour, brown head. Aroma hits with vanilla and coffee and really nice chocolate notes. The flavor is so smooth and really wonderful. Loads of coffee and vanilla. Light roast notes, more chocolate on the finish. Wow, great beer. Drink it now, I cannot imagine aging this will do much to help.

Beware. You must really like coffee if you are going to enjoy this beer. Still some descent hits of chocolate and smaller hint of vanilla. A little better than ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DesertDevil (525) - Arizona, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours like motor oil with no head. Awesome sweet aroma of molasses, vanilla, coffee, and maple syrup. Coffee and chocolate syrup on the first sip with nice bitterness from the coffee. Great oily palate. Just awesome.†

nick76 (4221) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2013
The aroma is amazing with chocolate, vanilla, wood, and molasses. The appearance is dark brown with a brown frothy head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall an outstanding beer. My only complaint is that it has lactose as I am lactose intolerant and canít have more than a few sips.

Palidor19 (2948) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Strong beer with a heavy espresso, dark chocolate flavor that is dominate all the way. Strong malts with a real opaque looking deal. The beer is a triple collaboration that works on all fronts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hopscotch (9161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Bottle... This beer rocks!Ö Pours motor oil black with a small, creamy, brown head. Decent retention. The aroma features elements of mocha, vanilla, and maple wood. Full-bodied and velvety with kicked-back carbonation. The flavor is sweet and bursting-at-the-seams with maple wood, vanilla and chocolate layered upon more subtle notes of charcoal and cola. Finishes woody, carbonic and medium-sweet. I donít pick up as much of the coffee component as most raters. Many thanks to landhoney for popping the top off this world class bottle of beer!

callmemickey (2779) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Dark brown-black body, moderate sized khaki head, spotty lacing. Nose shows deep coffee notes, vanilla, chocolate, wood, and some grassy hops. Flavor continues to highlight freshly roasted coffee, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, wood and ads a nice earthy character. Full bodied, appropriate carbonation, lightly bitter, dry, earthy finish.

Beerman6686 (4348) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2012
This poured a darker brown color with a darker beige head. Aroma was lighter coffee, dark roasted chocolate, and some green earthy hops. Flavor was chocolatey, but roasted, fully attenuated, yet thick and chewy. Lightler and different than other CCB big stouts.
