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.

(Keg at William K Kurvi, 20140611) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had coffee, burnt malts and liquorice. Palate was full bodied and fizzy with medium carbonation. Flavours were burnt malts, saltiness, liquorice, coffee, ash and bitterness. Aftertaste was burnt and bitter. A strong flavoured and still quite balanced brew.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4909) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Sampled on draft at Smokin’ Joe’s this beer poured a black color with a small foamy brown head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was roasty malts, brewed coffee and a bit of wood. The flavor was roasty malts, vanilla, brewed coffee, a touch of dark fruits and floral hops. Long roasty vanilla and coffee finish. Medium body. Ok.

Hermod (3141) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2014
Draught@ WilliamK, kurvi. Pours black, thick tan head. Loads of coffee in aroma, mocha, ash, roasted malt. Hint of chocolate. Flavor has coffee, cocoa, like in mocha coffee, porridge, mild sweetness. Finish is long with sugar/cocoa "oboy" lingering. Thinnish body. ABV a little higher and this would rock.

Mep3222 (477) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Nice mocha coffee aroma and flavors. Dry stout, not really sweet at all. Pretty full flavor, maybe slightly light for a stout, or slightly light palate. Worth having. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

laiti (5630) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Draught @ William K. Kurvi as "Coronado Coffee Stout". Aroma is rather neat with mocha coffee and licorice. Flavour has jalopenos typical to mocha beers. Also mocha coffee, licorice and truffles. Very nice, would be even better with stronger body. Starts to get a bit unpleasant peppery notes rather quickly though.

VastActiv (2782) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 6, 2014
Tap at William K. Kurvi, Helsinki. Colour is almost black with slightly brownish white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, dryness, massive coffee and roasted malts. Needs more body to be very good beer but still enjoyable.

umich03jm (1934) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Draft at World of Beer. Pours black with a small foamy head that collects to a nice ring. Aroma is dominated by fresh roasted coffee. Taste has that same great fresh coffee taste and it comes with a moderate bitterness. The problem is that it’s way too thin and watery. Easy to drink though.

superspak (2562) - Michigan, USA - MAY 28, 2014
22 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours very dark reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, light char, light nuttiness, light herbal, and roasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of coffee and dark/roasted malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, light caramel, light nuttiness, light char, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of roast/coffee bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, roast, toast, dark bread, light nuttiness, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance and robustness of coffee and dark/roasted malt flavors; with decent complexity and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately creamy, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice coffee stout. Good balance and robustness of coffee and dark/roasted malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. Pretty one dimensional, but nicely enjoyable.

Coffee, chocolate, and a fairly strong metallic funk in the aroma. Bittersweet flavor with coffee bitterness and chocolate malt. Coffee bitterness in the finish. Not bad, but not worth seeking out.
