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.

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

BMMillsy (1524) - Florida, USA - NOV 10, 2012
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 won’t get as much love since it doesn’t say "imperial" but don’t be fooled. Only knock is I was hoping for more coffee. Please brandy barrel age this, CCB. Pleeease. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big dark pour, brown head. Aroma hits with vanilla and coffee and really nice chocolate notes. The flavor is so smooth and really wonderful. Loads of coffee and vanilla. Light roast notes, more chocolate on the finish. Wow, great beer. Drink it now, I cannot imagine aging this will do much to help.

Big thanks to Dosbeerigos for sharing this! Super stoked to see this bad boy in attendance last night since I didn’t 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!

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

Damico (2680) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Pours dark, unlcear thick black coffee in color with a smaller, cocoa-colored head. Aroma is similar to KBS, fresh potent coffee and some sweet chocolate notes, so nice. Flavor is absolutely delicious! Brings notes of chocolate, light vanilla, smooth coffee sweetness, and some freshness, not quite minty but herbal fresh. Body is not too creamy but full and delicious still.

Big thanks to BMMillsy for sending this west in trade. Also thanks to dak for opening a bottle as well. This is yum. The 750mL pours an inky darkness sort of body supporting a mocha colored head of foam. The aroma is smooth rich dark roasted coffee goodness, a bit of earthiness, some sticky sweetness and something like chocolate too. The taste is smooth sweet smoother smoothness and perfection. I get rich oily dark roasted coffee notes, some thin sludgy melted chocolate, a touch of spicy wood and this is all covered in a thick layer of yum. Solid brew rich smooth mellow and bold. What a treat.

Plovmand (6595) - Helsinge, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle at home. Hopscotch is the man providing me with this incredible brew. Thanks man!! It pours thick jet black with a dense creamy medium sized light brown head. The aroma is hard roasted malt, wood, fresh roasted coffee and chocolate. Good hoppy as well. The flavour is chocolate, coffee, sweet cookies, vanilla, roasted malt, liquorice and oak. Vanilla is added in the finish. Some coconut as well. The maple wood is in the back not dominating at all which is a good thing. The coffee is definately in the front but not in the bitter cloying way. Great balanced and very fantastic coffee stout indeed.
