COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Just as the iconic Coronado Bay Bridge connects our island home to the mainland, this java-tinged dry stout, brewed using dark roasted coffee beans from a local San Diego artisanal roaster, provides a bridge uniting craft beer drinkers with CBC’s rich, flavorful SoCal brewing traditions.

Bottle shared by my bud Dosbeerigos, thanks man! Good mouth feel, not too thin or heavy. Good coffee bean presence with a solid malt backing. Good showing.

Jacksonville, Fl - Grassroots Natural Market - 22 oz bottle. Pours a deep dark oily tar-like black with a thin khaki colored quickly dissipating head. Aroma has some creosote notes, a touch of black coffee and chipotle peppers. Flavor is quite bold with some bittersweet unsweetened chocolate notes, brief peppery notes, some potting soil notes. Nice chalky mouthfeel. Pretty decent.

Pours a dark black with a red hue and a huge creamy light brown head. Aroma of coffee, cocoa, vanilla, sweet chocolate and some roast malts. Taste is roasted malts, coffee, and then transfers into a bitter cocoa. Overall a very pleasant coffee stout.

Hello, says I, there’s an exotic stout on tap at the local. I’m delighted. This one was jet black with a thinnish head of almost espresso colour. There is a muted aroma of coffee as it is served a little on the cold side but the flavour is full, oily and just coffee everywhere. This provides the enduring finish that is still present on the palate more than half an hour after. Dangerously enticing, a session would be problematic at this abv, but so, so good.

SpringsLicker (3164) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours black with a long lasting creamy tan head. Nice coffee aroma. The flavor follows the aroma with a bit of bitterness reminiscent of unsweetened espresso. This bitterness is tempered by a nice underlying sweetness. Very nicely done.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Bomber from Sam’s, Durham. Nice oily dark brown pour with a filmy, medium head. Fresh bean and chocolate malt in the nose rather than roast/char notes one sometimes gets. Slick-ish mouthfeel, but full in the right places. Far more roasted malts in the taste than the nose suggests, but it gives the chocolate an enhanced bitterness that is its own pleasure.

tomciccateri (1018) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - MAR 26, 2013
650ml brown bottle. Pours an opaque black with a lasting, thick brown head. Slight chocolate and coffee aroma. Big body with full mouthfeel. Coffee character pulls the flavor balance toward neutral from an early slightly malty sweet. Big but very drinkable/enjoyable.

Noahs_Own (5) - Tarawa Terrace, USA - MAR 26, 2013 does not count
Rated low on taste only because of a rough after taste and lack of malt. Color really tells you what you are getting, solid black.
