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.

Draught at MacKinely’s Inn, Stockholm. Perfectly black with rich beige head. Intense coffee aroma. Mid sweet with medium body and clean, spritzy mouthfeel. Coffee and some citric tartness. Crystal malt style clean malt, low bitterness in a drier finish. While I like the coffee flavour this beer seem a bit sterile.

fiulijn (15371) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2012
Draught at Freakin’ Frog, Las Vegas
Dark brown color with small head; too cold as all beers at Freakin’ Frog. Smell of bad coffee, ashy malts. Lean and dry mouthfeel, with roasted malt flavor and cheap coffee; later there is an impression of liquorice.
Monodimensional.

yngwie (14170) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2009
Bottle, courtesy og Papsoe. A gorgeous-looking black beer topped by a dense, dark beige head. Where the appearance is wonderful, the flavor and aroma is just above mediocre. Burnt, roasted nose with coffee. The flavor is much the same, adding some hints of dried fruits. Full-bodied and dry. It’s a nice beer, but a bit too one-tracked for my likings. 090821
