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.

Overall Impression: I liked this one, a pretty nice coffee stout. Dark brown color with a good amount of lace. Dominated by the coffee, but there is some other stuff there too. A good coffee, dark malt, chocolate, and roasted flavor with a good bitterness for balance. This is a solid beer.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 24, 2010
On cask at San Diego Real Ale Fest, Carlsbad (6/12/09): Pours a mostly opaque black with dark brown edges and a frothy, creamy-lacing dark tan head. Aroma of sweet toasty dark caramel and chocolate malt with a touch of grapefruity hops. Starts with good toasty dark malty sweetness and chocolatey complexity with a drier, resiny bittering hoppy balance before a toasty bittersweet coffee finish. A pretty good coffee stout.

yngwie (14170) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2009
Bottle, courtesy og Papsoe. A gorgeous-looking black beer topped by a dense, dark beige head. Where the appearance is wonderful, the flavor and aroma is just above mediocre. Burnt, roasted nose with coffee. The flavor is much the same, adding some hints of dried fruits. Full-bodied and dry. It’s a nice beer, but a bit too one-tracked for my likings. 090821
