Cigar City Brewing Moat Water
Cigar City Brewing Moat Water is an American Double/Imperial Stout. 8% ABV, bottled 10/25/2012, enjoyed at about 4 months of age. This is a collaboration between CCB, Skatepark of Tampa, and PS Stix in honor of the skateparks 20th year. The stout is brewed with lactose and Skatepark of Tampa’s own moat water!?! It is then aged with coffee, vanilla beans and Canadian maple wood veneers. The veneers used where then used in the creation of the 20 year anniversary decks built by PS Stix. I am not a skateboarder but I love these kinds of collaborations… and delicious stouts! A nice thick mouth-feel is complimented by a ton of huge flavor. Chocolate, anise, vanilla, mild roast and a dry finish that really brings out the coffee. The dry sharp coffee finish really balances out the sweet start to this stout. I am happy I found this in Florida well after the fact, and that I bought all three of the bottles I saw!
