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.

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.

Pours pitch black with small mocha head. Aroma of heavy sweet chocolate and fresh maple vanilla coffee. A complex smokey pepper coming off the nose, too. Wow this smells incredible. Hige thick mouthfeel like an imperial. Taste is like chocolate milk. Slight coffee bitter finish. Very light on the vanilla and maple. Vanilla comes out in aroma and flavor as it warms. Very sweet but not cloying. Alcohol totally hidden. Wow. This is really fantastic. It probably wonít get as much love since it doesnít say "imperial" but donít be fooled. Only knock is I was hoping for more coffee. Please brandy barrel age this, CCB. Pleeease. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rating 4400!11/2/12. 750mL bottle shared by Eddie! What a cool idea this beer is, and a great collaboration! The pour is an awesome black with a huge tan head that sticks and laces plenty. The aroma is hugely coffee forward with a ton of chocolate, some sweet vanilla, and barely a hint of woody maple. The flavor is sweet but tasty with huge coffee and plenty of vanilla and a touch of woody maple. This is very creamy and delicious!

I enjoyed this one quite a bit. Bomber ----> snifter...twice. Nose is huge espresso and roasted coffee with burnt malts, dry cocoa, and some vanilla sweetness. Pour is jet black with a small, dark brown head. Flavor is all roast and coffee. Tons of espresso and roasted malt. Sticky mouthfeel and thick. Lightly sweet finish behind that bitter roasted coffee. Very nice.

rbrazell (1702) - Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Black pour with a nice creamy brown head. Nose is fresh espresso, roasted malts, definite maple wood, sweet steamed milk and cocoa nibs. Flavor is loads of sweet vanilla beans, creme brûlée, coffee, cocoa, and roasted malts with some more subtle maple wood notes. Medium full bodied with a good bitterness in the end. Not overly sweet and well balanced. Damn tasty.

On draft at Cigar City, pours a dark black color, aromas of coffee, vanilla, oak, some maple, and light sugar. Flavors are all coffee, followed by some light oak, vanilla, and chocolate. Extremely smooth over all, could drink this beer all day.

Big thanks to Dosbeerigos for sharing this! Super stoked to see this bad boy in attendance last night since I didnít even realize that it had been bottled. Awesome aroma of coffee, vanilla, maple and chocolate. Very sticky and thick, though the body is somewhat thin. Incredibly easy to drink, ABV masked very well. Outstanding!

Coffee blast on the nose. Full bodied, imperial stout back end, thick coffee palate, pours, beautiful opal with no head. Sticks to the glass.

Snifter pour at the brewery of deep dark liquid with a very thin khaki head. Nose is sharp, black coffee, mild sweet notes of vanilla, roasted malts, and chocolate. Flavor follows, bitter from the coffee but smooth from lactose. Light sweetness of caramel and smooth vanilla. Medium body but fairly smooth. Nice

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2013 This is a pretty complex brew. The aroma is like old coffee next to printer paper (stained with chocolate). Dry, earthy flavors reminded me of a porter, but as it turned mellow with bittersweet cocoa... Anyways itís almost musty, but in a good way.
