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.

Braudog (6172) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 19, 2016
Bottle. Pitch black, but a bit of a thin body, almost no head whatsoever. Very thin sense of any aroma. This drinks like weak coffee, with the flavors there. But this falls far short of the every-growing list of amazing beers out there, and falls into the "ordinary" category these days, IMHO. Tastes good, a bit thin for style. (#6135, 2/19/2016)

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Sample on tap at Cincy Winter Beerfest 2016. Very dark brown, slight red color. Thin off-white head. Some bits, ridges of lace. Toasty malt, some coffee in the aroma. A hint of burnt flavor. Medium-plus body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Mild slick finish. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. Moderate sweet. Mildly sugary. Decent coffee porter / stout, but a bit one-note aside from coffee and some dark fruit.

alexsdad06 (8145) - Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Draft at Cincy beerfest 16. Pours a dark cola brown near black color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, some earthy notes, mainly a standard dry coffee stout, could benefit from a bigger mouthfeel and body.

rumproasts (4698) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 16, 2016
bottle. Brown with one finger head. Definitely thin for a stout. Light roasted malt and moderate coffee. Actually reminds me somewhat of the Alaskan Coffee Brown I had recently, but slightly maltier and less coffee forward in this case. Dry finish.
