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.

CLevar (377) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Bottle pour thanks to Armin...Beer of the night in my book! Pour is a thick and rich black, with a dark mocha head that sticks around to leave some sticky candy lacing. Aroma is bakers chocolate, vanilla, milk caramel. Lots of coffee as well. Lightly bready. Taste...holy god this tasted amazing. The amount of chocolate present in this beer was insane. Chocolate covered whoppers! I have a hard time believing that chocolate was not used in any way here! Truly just a great blend of sweet malt, chocolate, and coffee. Finish is sticky sweet, with a lingering coffee taste. I would take this over KBS or any number of other coffee stouts. Fantastic beer!

pours very dark brown with a thick beige head offering a good retention and nice lacing patterns. burnt chocolate bar, vanilla, cherries and blackberries, sweet molasses and fresh cream - not necessarily cloying, cedar-like woodsiness, then again it’s probably maple.. also some licorice, grass, resin, slightly cakey, ashes. moderate to low carbonation, full body - oily and sticky, sweet grassy-slightly resinous-ashy finish. nice one. enjoyed!

Bottle at the Triad bottle share at Foothills organized by Mike. Heavy on the sweet vanilla beans. Minimal maple sweetness. Moderate dark chocolate syrupyness, if that’s a word. Annnd we’re back to the vanilla.

Minderbinder (1584) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle 750ml. Pours black with very high creamy light brown head. Nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt, metal, coffee, milk. Taste is of roasted malt, nuts, sweetness, bitter (faintly), milk, some acidity. Palate: Full body. Poor balance. Foamy texture. Overall: Could have been better, but the palate is somewhat repulsive. Too sweet too. Still decent.

mathieuc (996) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle shared by tom10101, thanks! Pour is black with a medium "milk chocolate" head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of ash and dark chocolate. I usually despise ash in a stout but this time it wasn’t disturbing and almost fitting. Taste is sweet and milky, full of milk chocolate impressions. Body is full, carbonation medium. Altough a touch too sweet for me, it is still really good. This is one to be shared, way too much sugar for a single person!

tom10101 (2218) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2014
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.
