COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moat Water is a stout brewed with lactose and Skatepart of Tampa’s 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. It’s appearance is dark, just like your future if you dare to partake in the infamous Moat Race during Skatpark of Tampa’s legendary Tampa AM and Tampa PRO.

Bottle (750 ml). From pandableh, thanks Dan! Black with a medium thick dark brown head and some lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt, milk/lactose sweetness, maple notes, ashes and vegetal presence. Taste is sweet (lactose/milk sweetness) with roasted malt, vegetal presence, maple and caramel. Medium to full body. Medium/good carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Lack of balance. Not very sugary, but much to sweet. Not easily drinkable. Some complexity.

Nice black pour, what else is new? Nose is chocolate, coffee, vanilla and wood notes. Nice viscosity as usuall. Big chocolate sweetness, with coffee and a syrupy characteristic, damn fine breakfast beer if you ask me. Another CCB beer that I will miss when I run out of bottles

Thanks Sebastien @ RBBWG 2014!!! Pours an opaque dark brown with a brown head. The smell is dark roasted malt, char, coffee, mild malt sweetness. The taste is coffee grounds, dark roasted malt, a bit of caramel and a dry ending with a lot of charcoal.

Bouteille 75cl courtesy of Ibrew2or3. De couleur brune foncée, col épais moka. Arôme est fortement axé sur les malts, moka, grillé et torréfié, biscuité avec une dominance du café. Palais est malté grillé, café sur une note adoucie de vanille et une certaine épaisseur de bouche venant du lactose. Le niveau torréfié est dominant. Effervescence moyenne et une amertume houblonnée subtile vient ponctuer chaque gorgée.

75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2014. Courtesy of & thx! to Sebletitje. GUSHER. Pours a very dark blackish brown with a vanishing dark mocha head. Nose is heavy on the roast, caramel, mocha, coffee powder, all bitter & heavy on the roast. Charcoal upfront in the taste, bitter coffee grounds, charred barrel, faint sweetness in the back, mocha. Bit thin & fizzy. Would have preferred personally if there had been more sweetness in this & not bitter grounds and charcoal. Not a bad beer but I think that CCB can reach greater heights than this.

750mL bottle, sent from Daniel 719 (thanks a lot, Daniel), pours black with a tiny tan head. Nose brings out loads of vanilla beans, followed by coffee and slight woody notes. Flavour brings out rich notes of roasted malt, wood, vanilla beans, and espresso. Very woody, dry, and roasty, with just enough vanilla and subtle coffee notes. Super complex and highly drinkable. Awesome stuff.
