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.

22oz bottle pours a translucent dark brown with ruby edges and a thick, foamy off white head. Nose is interesting, some bread crust, some cold pressed coffee, a little condensed milk, some chocolate, a little raw parsnip, some almond. Flavor is better, coffee is more prevalent than the nose but far from overwhelming, a little cola, almost a little birch, malt, some very mild chocolate, a hint of cinnamon, some almond. Clean finish. Very drinkable. Coffee is really just a complimenting flavor.

GenDV138 (4605) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle poured into a Belgian snifter. Pours black with dark brown hues, almost a finger of light tan head. Decent lacing. Aromas of coffee, roast, light caramel and vanilla. Tasting notes of roast, slightly burnt coffee, coffee grounds, dark chocolate, a little caramel and vanilla. Medium-light body with a mostly dry finish. Pretty nice lower ABV coffee stout.

Livendadream (191) - New Mexico, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Btl pours murky black with a beige, thick creamy head that fades quickly leaving nice wraps of lace on glass. Aromas of cocoa,sweet coffee,roasted malts and vanilla. A taste of lightly sweet toffee,coffee,dark chocolate and a faint rum note with some earthiness.Medium body,mild carbonation smooth texture with a mildly bitter,nice dry finish. Very nice stout that is not to heavy or cloying, letting the intense coffee flavor shine through. Overall a great stout that has phenomenal coffee flavors.

Cunningham (6256) - Halden, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle as Coronado Coffee Stout. Pitch black color with a fine beige head. Lots of coffee and roasted malt in the nose. Medium + body. Moderate sweet and an ok bitterness. Average to soft carbonation. Pleasant balanced coffee, roasted malt and chocolate flavor. Recomendable.

From a shared bottle at RBNG-14. Pours black with a beige head. Intense coffee aroma with dark malts and caramel. A bit thin, but quite flavourful and nice. Pleasant stuff.

Rune (10010) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2014
Sampled from a big bottle at the Grand Tasting at the RBNG-event, Fredrik 3.’s Hall. A fair tan-coloured head to a jet black body. Coffee nose, very dry. Taste of coffee, earthy malts and lingering roasted, bittersweet malts to the ending. Just the right kind of black coffee drink for me (Fredriksten festning, Halden 15.02.2014).

Tap on the island. Pours black with thick light-brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, cocoa, sweet coffee. Flavor is coffee up front, a nice sweetness and some bitter cocoa. Somewhat thin but very nice overall.

Bottle sample at RBNG-14. Jet black body, medium creamy light beige head. Nose is mad espresso, cocoa, dark chocolate, dark malts and hints of caramel. Taste is coffee, chocolate, cocoa, ashes and hints of caramel and grains. Full body, medium to high carbonation. Nice enough coffee stout.
