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.

Hanuta06 (367) - Washington, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Serving: from (nitro) tap--at The Beer Junction. Aroma: lightly malty, coffee aroma. Appearance: huge, creamy, off-white, initial head with mostly lasting longevity and good lacing. Black body. Taste: lightly sweet, coffee-like initial flavor and lightly bitter finish with average duration. Palate: medium bodied with creamy texture, and flat/soft carbonation. Overall: very good. Smooth and easy to drink. No overpowering attributes.

Pours nearly opaque brown with amber tinges around the margins, one finger of light beige head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, no lacing. (4/5) Nose is coffee, roasty malts, mild cocoa, faint hint of citrusy hops. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter. (7/10) Light to medium body, lively to moderate carbonation, off-dry and slightly astringent finish. (3/5) Mediocre to solid coffee stout. Pleasant aroma, good flavour, decent body. Nothing stands out as being particularly great, but there are no obvious negatives, either. If that sounds like Iím damning it with faint praise, well, maybe I am - it could certainly stand to be a bit bolder, particularly after the initial coffee hit subsides, and although the body is OK, it could be heavier. Ultimately itís a little one-dimensional - though, since itís pretty good coffee flavour, thatís not entirely bad. (15/20)

mcberko (7792) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2015
On tap at Stateside Craft, pours a red-tinged black with a small tan head. Aroma seems a bit messed up, with coffee, diacetyl and vegetal notes. Flavour is also messed up - notes of muted coffee, vegetal notes and diacetyl. This shouldnít be sold - something wrong with this keg no doubt. Bad.

Very nice and creamy. Actually probably one of the best beers I have tried in a while. Nice features and all.

Poured from a bottle. I like the chocolate stouts, but this is a little chalky. Iíd 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.

koleminer20 (807) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 18, 2015
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. Thereís a lot of damp coffee and a little roastiness and not a whole lot else. There isnít good coffee blast up front and then it falls apart. Really thin and light. There is a sweetness to it that just doesnít fit. Itís all over the place. Roasty coffee and thin sweet water. The mouth feel is watery. Itís just not good. Light, not really carbonated, and the aftertaste is a cross between sweet and bland. Iím 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 (6485) - 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 Iíve had from them, and theyíve 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.
