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 CBCs rich, flavorful SoCal brewing traditions.

On tap at the Brew pub at Coronado. Dark brown in color with a light brown, milky head. Aroma was very roasted with a good amount of coffee; some meatiness to it as well. Flavor was similar; just too much coffee for me to really like to much. Must be a coffee lover for this one.

Poured from a bottle. I like the chocolate stouts, but this is a little chalky. Id pass on this in the future.

Weak aroma of coffee, pours a dark brown color with a short lasting tan head. Taste of coffee with a watery feel and chalky finish.

22 oz bottle. The pour is a dark brown with a foamy off white head and a decent foamy last as it falls to a collar. The aroma is somewhat disappointing. Theres a lot of damp coffee and a little roastiness and not a whole lot else. There isnt good coffee blast up front and then it falls apart. Really thin and light. There is a sweetness to it that just doesnt fit. Its all over the place. Roasty coffee and thin sweet water. The mouth feel is watery. Its just not good. Light, not really carbonated, and the aftertaste is a cross between sweet and bland. Im not a fan at all ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is coffee, roasted malt, light. Appearance is dark brown, off-white head. Taste starts promising, coffee forward, falls off almost immediately into a sweet, light nothing. Mouthfeel is light. Light. The carbonation seems forced and it?s just not great. Overall...I love coffee stouts, and this might be the worst I?ve had.

Ernest (6417) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is black (non-opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (roasted grain, cocoa powder), lightly hoppy (grapefruit), with a light note minerals. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Another safe, rather boring brew from Coronado. This is the 5th or 6th thing Ive had from them, and theyve all rated from 3.0-3.3. Glad their quality is consistent, but sure would be nice if they made something with some soul and character.

sir__v (754) - Lille, FRANCE - JAN 11, 2015
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.
