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

Lots of rich, kind chocolate in the nose, touches of vanilla, hints of burnt wood. Big sweet flavor without being cloying, plenty of chocolate, vanilla, some dark fruits, mild bitterness, cocoa.

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.

brokensail (16328) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 7, 2013
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.
