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 CBCís rich, flavorful SoCal brewing traditions.

Beaver (1301) - 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.

rosenbergh (6849) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 12, 2014
22 oz bottle. Courtesy of olio. Clear dark reddish brown colour with a small light tan head. Vanilla, roasted malt and a huge load of coffee in the aroma. The flavour is surprisingly smooth with sweet vanilla, coffee, mild malt and some nutty notes. A bit thin.

650 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown colour with a small head. Aroma of rich coffee notes, biscuit and dark chocolate. Flavour of roasted malts, sweetness, dark chocolate, licorice, some biscuit and mild tart-ish notes. Medium bodied. Quite soft but a bit thin mouthfeel. Good.

yackery (156) - California, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Bomber. Hazy red coffee body under fast-dissolving brown-tinged white head and frosty lacing. Aroma is roasted coffee ground and chocolate toffee, some leather and wood, and hint of cough drop or soy sauce for undertone. But itís got a garbage funkiness or tang. Maybe itís just me. Flavor is coffee bitter and mild sweet and umami. Palate is a bit thin and slightly fizzy with a coffee bitter long finish. Overall weaker than some but at only 5.4% maybe the lowest, and for that, itís pretty good, but there are better.

Bottle . Pours a dark black color. Nutty coffee croadty flavor with a malty backbone. Decent drinkable stout with a nice aftertaste
