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.

gramity (1530) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 7, 2013
The appearance is a deep coffee brown. Not much head. The aromas are full of a medium dark roast coffee with some oatmeal and malts. The flavors pretty much follow the nose. Moderately acidic coffee, some slight fruitiness at times. Great malty backing that is a touch milder on the malt roast pushing the brew slightly towards a brown. Medium to slightly full body

Davros (2197) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 3, 2013
Pours black with a small head. Nose shows slightly stale burnt coffee and little else. Flavours are pretty much the same, just stale coffee grounds. Not even much roasted malt character. Needs a thicker body and creamier carbonation. Not great.

marcus (7230) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 24, 2013
Bottle from City Beer. Pours near black with a modest tan head and a coffee and treacle aroma. There is a medium-bodied dark molasses flavor with lots of coffee and a dry finish.

maneliquor (3393) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours dark brown with a firm, khaki head atop. Nose shows roasted coffee beans, light bitterness. Taste is pretty much bitter coffee - the kind where you decide instead of going to your local coffee joint, you decide to grab a take away coffee from somewhere different and immediately regret the decision once it touches your lips. Vedry thin and watery mouth feel. Average

Pours dark and thick with a small tan head. The nose is oatmeal, coffee, chocolate, nutty, licorice. The taste is medium sweet and low bitter. The texture is smooth and creamy, body is medium and finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 25, 2013 Black pour with light tan head. Nose is strong coffee. Dry Thoughout roasted malts, coffee, creamy yet dry body, mellow bitter finish. Nice but doesnt stand out.
