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.

Bottle. Pours a thick and near black color with a moderate tan head. Nose has some roasted and coffee notes to it, though they aren’t terribly strong. Taste it a little bitter, like a strong black coffee. Not bad.

This coffee stout is very smooth and rich. The initial aroma and taste is pretty much amazing. Definitely a go-to stout!

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 black with a long lasting creamy tan head. Nice coffee aroma. The flavor follows the aroma with a bit of bitterness reminiscent of unsweetened espresso. This bitterness is tempered by a nice underlying sweetness. Very nicely done.

Really good coffee stout. Surprised by the lower abv but still impressed. Nice coffee smell. Pours a black/dark brown with very little head. Absolutely delicious taste and very smooth. Awesome beer, I wish it was available in my area

Pours a pitch black with foamy two finger tan head which fades to a very nice lacing which lingers forever. aroma is of dark black coffee, roasted malt, some coco, and some nuttiness. Flavor is of rich dark roast coffee, roasted malts, some bakers coco, nuttiness, and some caramel. Has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and a nice dry, semi bitter, roasty finish. overall, a tasty and drinkable stout that make nice use of coffee.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2013 Initial score 2.4 Well you have to like coffee to like his one as the flavor and aroma are dominated by it. The stout characters are right on, but the coffee is over the top for me. On the re-rate I found that the strong coffee flavor was much more tolerable, even enjoyable.

650ml brown bottle. Pours an opaque black with a lasting, thick brown head. Slight chocolate and coffee aroma. Big body with full mouthfeel. Coffee character pulls the flavor balance toward neutral from an early slightly malty sweet. Big but very drinkable/enjoyable.

Pours a dark brown black color with a short java head. Nose is all malt and deep espresso. Taste is sweet with chocolate, malt and coffee. A light stout making it very drinkable. Finish is semi dry , sweet with lingering java. Nice! Quaff Score 8 / 10
