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.

Bomber from HWC. Pours a pure black color with a medium beige head. A huge nose of coffee. The flavor is milky coffee, light roast, chocolates. Very smooth and tasty.

22oz bomber pours with a dark dark body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up rich dark roasted malts, dark roasted coffee and then a touch of chocolate malts. Very nice. The taste offers up coffee to start and then dark roasted coffee to burnt malts. To midway the coffee notes get deeper and richer. Good stuff that is hitting the spot right now.

Appearance: Black with a thick crema hued head which slowly fades into a solid layer of crema that tries to crawl up the sides of my glass. Dense impenetrable darkness – more charcoal than motor oil. Visually appealing.
Nose: Coffee! Roasted beans and instant coffee and cold press spent grind and burnt caramel, ohmy. Black chocolate flakes in the middle with a chocolate truffle powder dusting just for good measure. Delicate tobacco leaf notes on top are also dusted with truffle powder and finely ground coffee.
Palate: Delicious! Medium weight with a soft chocolate cake mouthfeel. Coffee is front and center followed by a generous coating of chocolate. Fresh cold press coffee and burnt caramel crema in the back. Dark fruits along the sides, stones included for a touch of bitter nutty tannins. Tobacco oils underneath carry all the flavors from start to finish – subtle and never overpowers. The roasted coffee and unfettered cacao never stops. Black woods and black earth in the back.
Final Thoughts: This is a stout that speaks of a different time and place which could either be an old café or even older black forests. With each quaff it was a sense of time and place and though I don’t partake of coffee anymore, the Blue Bridge Coffee Stout would make a great breakfast imbibement. Cheers!

Delicious! Good head, balanced aroma, strong but not overpowering. Since it’s a coffee stout I’ll drink it with breakfast.

Coffee, chocolate, malt. Acidity from coffee in the finish hints at slightly unripe plums or cherries. A nice enough drop, if a little thin and unadventurous.

GIJOE (1057) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Dark brown with a tan head, thick, sticky lacing. Nose is coffee with cream and sugar. Flavor is sweet up front with a back off of dark chocolaty bitterness. Medium body, nice carbonation. Decent brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
