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.

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.

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.

freekyp (1776) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 6, 2015
Old coffee aroma and flavor with a medium -to-thin body that I poundable but lacks magic. Pours clear dark brown, and ends with a slight tartness that is offputting. Old coffee.

Not liking this. Smells like a rusty coffee can, tastes like bad coffee from that can.

shoulderbroken (3222) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 24, 2015
Tap at the Grub. Coffee is very subdued, porter type fruitiness, little bit of sweetness, only a hint of coffee. Touch of caramel in the finish. Not sure what the point is. Cola cubes. Guess Coronado beers are not for me.
