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 CBCs rich, flavorful SoCal brewing traditions.

22oz bottle - A really nice stout with a good showing of coffee in both the flavor and aroma. Nothing over-powering, nothing unbalanced. Mouthfeel was nice and the acidic nature of the coffee did help with the sweetness of the malts in a unique way. Solid roasty character and surprised to see the low ABV on this. Nice beer all the way around.

Bottle to beer tulip. Pour is deep brown like cola with an off white head. Aroma is coffee and malt. Taste is strong coffee with next to no hops. The coffee is really nice. The base stout is really nice as well. The finish is medium bodied and slick. Decent stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strong coffee notes, silky body, pleasant dark chocolate aftertaste. Smooth and unobtrusive with its small abv, this is a pretty good sessionable stout.

Beaver (1344) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2014
22 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium creamy tan head that goes to a thin film and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is fudgy chocolate malts with a lot of nice roast coffee.

The flavor is sweet chocolate malts some some slightly acidic roast coffee. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and fairly watery.

Overall, a decent coffee stout.

Pours dark clear red color with a small off-white head. Coffee is distinct on the nose, some malts, faint chocolate and cocoa. Surprisingly smooth palate, sweet chocolate, faint coffee and malts. Medium carbonation, dry malty finish. A bit watery but still tasty.
