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.

Rated low on taste only because of a rough after taste and lack of malt. Color really tells you what you are getting, solid black.

emartell (256) - 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 (863) - 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.

Idiosynkrasie (4099) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2014
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.

Beerhunter111 (8393) - Hasborn, GERMANY - DEC 17, 2014
Das Bier hat eine orangebraune Farbe und wenig beigen Schaum. Geruch nach viel Kaffee, bitterers Kaffeepulver, röstmalzig. Geschmack bitter schokoladig, Kaffeepulver, Röstmalz, etwas monoton.

blipp (6358) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Draft. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Rich sweet malts, mild roasted notes, coffee, and moderate sweetness throughout. Pretty good; certainly quite drinkable.

thomasjoberg (16) - FINLAND - NOV 29, 2014
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. :(

joeneugs (3496) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 14, 2014
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a surprisingly dark amber color with a nice eggshell head. Very light for a coffee stout. The aroma is lightly nutty wiht some peanut shells and hard roasted coffee. The flavor is dry with more light fruity coffee notes. Hints of roasted malt and cocoa. Amber malts seem to rule here with a nice coffee flavor. Not as "stouty" as I was expecting, but still good.

50belair (2490) - Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Dark brown pour with a light brown head. Enticing dark roasted malt and Expresso bouquet. Huge coffee notes dominate with dark roasted malt, chocolate and caramel low lights. Smooth and creamy. Good body and mouthfeel.

Bottle. Pours deep dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is roasty dark coffee. Flavor is chocolaty malt and dark coffee. Some molasses as well. Nice.

GG (2326) - NorCal, California, USA - OCT 30, 2014
22oz bottle - A really nice stout with a good showing of coffee in both the flavor and aroma. Nothing over-powering, nothing unbalanced. Mouthfeel was nice and the acidic nature of the coffee did help with the sweetness of the malts in a unique way. Solid roasty character and surprised to see the low ABV on this. Nice beer all the way around.
