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.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a Cigar City snifter. Bottled on October 25, 2012 printed on label. Appearance: Pours a motor oil black with a 1/2 finger toffee brown head which dissipates quickly leaving a ring around the edge of the snifter. Very nice lacing. Smell: Medium roasted coffee, vanilla, and milk chocolate with a touch of molasses. Excellent aroma. Taste: Medium roasted malt, semisweet chocolate, sweet vanilla and molasses up front followed by coffee and sweet cream in the middle before ending with espresso and burnt toast at the finish. Aftertaste is bitter and roasty with a hint of cocoa. Mouthfeel: Full-bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Drinkability: Excellent drinkability. A very smooth beer that goes down way too easily for 8% ABV. Overall: Excellent beer overall. This reminds me a lot of CCBís Marshal Zhukhovís Imperial Stout except with less booziness. I may enjoy this one even more because itís not quite as heavy. I know this is probably the only time Iíll ever get to try it since it was a one time brew, but if I see it again Iím jumping all over it. If you see it, try it.

750ml bottle. Poured a dark brown, almost black with an off white head. Chocolate, milk shake, lactose, roasty, woody, vanilla and coffee. I really liked this one and it grew on me more and more as I drank it.

Black in color with a tan head. Really nice coffee, vanilla, and chocolate aromas. Hints of wood, some spice, and a weird chlorine note. The flavor has some green pepper and chlorine which really ruin an otherwise nice beer. Roasted malt, vanilla, lactose, coffee, and chocolate.

Big thanks to Leighton for bringing the remainder of this one along to CBC for me to rate, 22/04/13. Mid black with a thin beige head which dissipates to nyadda. Nose carries dark fruit tones, chocolate, molasses, light spice - a little on the thin side for an 8% ABV beer. Taste comprises rich chcolate souffle, sweet brown sugars, soy sauce. Full bodied with moderate carbonation, sweet and chocolatey finish. Decent fayre.

Dfonorow (1867) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2013
Pour is close to black, viscus, large chocolate colored head. Chocolate sweetness and coffee shine through in the aroma with more subtle notes of vanilla beans and coffee creamer. Flavor is very heavy on the roasted coffee with a bit of maple syrup and chocolate as well. Alcohol is very well hidden. Milky, creamy, smooth.
