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.

Bottle shared @ home from Saveur-Biere.com - Color: dark black beer with brown reflexion small carbonation and small brown head. Smell: nice malt domination with chocolate and coffee notes. High coffee domination. Taste: watery sensation with good malt presence and extrem dominaton of coffee and black chocolate ! Really impressive beer but not so drinkable (that was difficult for 2 friends :) ). Aftertaste: nice malt and chocolate with coffee finnish. Really nice work !

22 ounce bottle. Translucent brown black color. Thick rocky tan head. Nose is roasted malt and coffee. Rich, smooth roasted malt flavor has a soft dry coffee palate. Some citrus hops in finish, but the roasted malt dominates here. There is an underlying malty sweetness here that makes this a really drinkable stout. Quite tasty and worth seeking out.

glennmastrange (2383) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle. Moderate toasted cereal, dark chocolate and mild coffee, light resin and earth for the hops and yeast, with hints of charcoal and milk. Head is small, frothy, light tan with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes slightly bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, a little slick with a lively carbonation. Tasty, easy drinking Stout with a nice overtone of coffee.

emartell (269) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - DEC 26, 2014
Aroma agradable el cual invita a degustarlas. Las notas que destacan son a chocolate, café y malta tostada, así como ligeras notas ahumadas. En cuanto a su apariencia, color prácticamente negro, carbonatacion alta, corona de espuma abundante de media retenció, cuerpo medio. En boca es suave, fácil de beber, y con ligeras notas a café tostado. Al paladar es poco compleja. Al principio del trago es fácil de beber e incluso refrescante. Posteriormente y al final del trago se perciben las notas a café, tonos ahumados y ligeramente chocolate. Al final del trago se percibe cierta sequedad en boca exaltando el sabor a café. En resumen es una cerveza agradable y sabrosa. Buenas notas a café y chocolate así como buenos sabores a café, sin embargo si es muy ligera, de poco cuerpo y carece de la complejidad de sabores que se esperan de una infusión de café.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Poured from bomber completely black, formed very little foam. Aroma straight up coffee, roasted malts, dark chocolate, with somewhat pleasant burnt hint. Flavour was all the same, extremely drinkable coffee beer, delicious. Recommend.

650ml bottle. Cloudy, amber-ish, red-brown colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, German taxicab beige head. Dark malty aroma, hints of malt lozenge, a touch of coffee. Taste is roasty dark malty, coffee notes, some sweet dark malty staining; dry roast and sweet dark malt ping-pong overall.

Das Bier hat eine orangebraune Farbe und wenig beigen Schaum. Geruch nach viel Kaffee, bitterers Kaffeepulver, röstmalzig. Geschmack bitter schokoladig, Kaffeepulver, Röstmalz, etwas monoton.

Draft. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Rich sweet malts, mild roasted notes, coffee, and moderate sweetness throughout. Pretty good; certainly quite drinkable.

Tap@cosmic comic café in turku, Finland. Aroma of green apple, sour and cleaning agent, swimming pool. Nice dark black color and tanned head (not lasting though, disappeared in 2 minutes). Very acidic on palate. Horrible after taste. Lacks body, almost watery and too much carbonation. Very sad. :(
