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 CBCs rich, flavorful SoCal brewing traditions.

Served on tap at The Joint in OB. The appearance is a deep coffee brown. Not much head. The aromas are full of a medium dark roast coffee with some oatmeal and malts. The flavors pretty much follow the nose. Moderately acidic coffee, some slight fruitiness at times. Great malty backing that is a touch milder on the malt roast pushing the brew slightly towards a brown. Medium to slightly full body. Very tasty coffee brew.

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

seymour (1396) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Poured from a brown bomber bottle into a nonic English pint glass. It poured an opaque black colour with sudsy beige foam, everlasting with nice lacing. Bready, toasty, roasty, faint citrusy hops, some grain bitterness and tartness too like a true-to-style London Porter, further enhanced by nice medium roasted coffee acidity. Smooth and well-rounded mouthfeel, but a little alcoholic heat despite only 5.4% abv. Very dry dark grainy finish like Guinness, but much more complex. Good stuff.

Thinner than I expected. Lots of roasted coffee up front, blended with cream and molasses. Good flavors outside of a slight sourness. A heavier body would probably do it wonders.
