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.

Pours jet black with a dark mocha head. Aroma of coffee, lactose, chocolate and vanilla. Taste follows with the wood(maple) coffee and it finishes with some lactose sweetness. Really thick and chewy. Pretty amazing ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HUGE coffee for me here though other reviews donít seem to reflect this. The vanilla was very faint if at all and I canít say I got much wood. However, those components most likely merely served to make up the balance of this beer which was fantastic. Moderate body, big chocolate.

Pours black with light brown head. Aromas of coffee and milk chocolate with some roasted malts. Espresso and sweet chocolaty flavors with some vanilla and bitter roasted malts. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Another well done stout from Cigar City.

Pours a dark brown with a nice brown head and sweet aroma of coffee and chocolate. Taste is sweet, tons of fresh coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and vanilla with a sweet, chocolate-coffee finish. Delicious beer with a lot of great flavor.

Pours a dark luscious brownish black color with a beautiful mocha head. Nose is deep espresso and chocolate. Taste is sweet and the palate is bathed in chocolate and coffee. A beautiful sweet stout. It is dessert in a bottle, what a beer for number 500. Quaff Score 9 / 10

Dark black pour with a dark tan head. Awesome smell has hints of vanilla nad plenty of coffee. The flavor is more coffee and charred astringent malt bitterness, something I like about CCB stouts. The maple adds a unique flavor and there is of course cocoa notes.

Pours inky black with no head. Coffee, vanilla, roasted grain aroma. Pungent citrus roasted grain dark fruit taste. Unique brew.

Sampled at GonzoIlliniís Birthday Party (Western Springs, IL). Happy Birthday, Tony! Pours a rich thicker blackish pour, dark and thicker with some good toasty malts, roasty, some gentle oak, and richer growing flavorful coffee. Rich coffee beans, vanilla, espresso, and gentle cocoa. Lighter elements of hazelnut, earth, inviting sweetness. Gentle oak, vanilla, and spirit. Initial is coffee, thicker fulled body yet silky, lots of coffee, espresso, cocoa, and dark silky malts. Touches of oak, rich vanilla beans, touch of nuttiness. Caramel, coffee, and toffee. Middle shows touches of more roast and toast, firm body, vanilla, silky, smooth. Great flavors, touch of cinnamon, like a rich desserty coffee drink, gentle oak, earth, roast. Great flavors, not too big. A winner from CCB.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2012 I tried this at a local beer tasting. Black pour with a tan head on top that sheds some nice lacing. The aroma shows plenty of vanilla to go with roasted coffee malt, and a healthy dose of chocolate. Slick vanilla and lactic flavors at first thatís followed by chocolate roast, coffee, paper-like notes I referred to as cardboard, a hint of molasses (which is probably the maple I was tasting), and bitter earthy notes in the finish. A bit of heft makes me wonder if "Imperial" should be included in the name. Itís a Cigar City stout, you know itíll be good and this was. It wasnít mind blowing or anythng though.
