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.

Ibrew2or3 (6835) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 4, 2013
22oz bomber pours with a dark dark body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up rich dark roasted malts, dark roasted coffee and then a touch of chocolate malts. Very nice. The taste offers up coffee to start and then dark roasted coffee to burnt malts. To midway the coffee notes get deeper and richer. Good stuff that is hitting the spot right now.

TBone (12538) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2014
Tap at Winston Fest. Dark brown color, small off-white head. Aroma has caramel, light coffee and tiny tart note. Medium-bodied. Toasted, coffeish but same time somewhat lame. Dissapointment.

65 cl bottle.
Pours dark clear red color with a small off-white head. Coffee is distinct on the nose, some malts, faint chocolate and cocoa. Surprisingly smooth palate, sweet chocolate, faint coffee and malts. Medium carbonation, dry malty finish. A bit watery but still tasty.

rosenbergh (6660) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 12, 2014
22 oz bottle. Courtesy of olio. Clear dark reddish brown colour with a small light tan head. Vanilla, roasted malt and a huge load of coffee in the aroma. The flavour is surprisingly smooth with sweet vanilla, coffee, mild malt and some nutty notes. A bit thin.

lusikka (6179) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 12, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown colour with a small head. Aroma of rich coffee notes, biscuit and dark chocolate. Flavour of roasted malts, sweetness, dark chocolate, licorice, some biscuit and mild tart-ish notes. Medium bodied. Quite soft but a bit thin mouthfeel. Good.

yackery (156) - California, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Bomber. Hazy red coffee body under fast-dissolving brown-tinged white head and frosty lacing. Aroma is roasted coffee ground and chocolate toffee, some leather and wood, and hint of cough drop or soy sauce for undertone. But it’s got a garbage funkiness or tang. Maybe it’s just me. Flavor is coffee bitter and mild sweet and umami. Palate is a bit thin and slightly fizzy with a coffee bitter long finish. Overall weaker than some but at only 5.4% maybe the lowest, and for that, it’s pretty good, but there are better.

Defreni (2603) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2014
Fad: Sort let klar øl med et fint skumhoved. Masser af kaffe i duften, minder om blue mountain stout. Super lækker. Smagen er også fin. Flot øl.

On tap at the Orange Street brewpub location. Pours black with a good, durable tan head that leaves lots of sticky lacing. Aroma: black coffee with a trace of hops. Taste: black coffee; touch of hops; faint dark roasted malts. Medium bitterness. Good coffee flavor. Very good sweet/bitter balance. Feel: thin body; smooth; medium carbonation. O: Well-crafted, light version of the style that’s is heavy on coffee flavor.
