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.

Sask89 (499) - Regina, Saskatchewan, - MAY 13, 2014
Pours black in colour with a very thin mocha head. Aroma is a little subtle but with noticeable roasted malts and coffee scents. Taste is malty with a sweet undertone, slightly watered down. Medium body, thin on the palate and softer carbonation. Overall a good but not spectacular beer.

Benzai (11038) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2015
Sampled @ Borefts 2015. Dark brown to black color, small to average sized beige head. Smell and taste malts, roasted malts, coffee and coffee roast, coffee bitter. All about coffee this one, but this one doesn’t convince me. Bit one sided. Decent body and carbonation.

Vaiz (3988) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2015

boxofrane (2535) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2015
Bomber from trio. Pours black with a small brown head. The aroma has a bit of coffee but is mostly roasted malt and a bit of cocoa. The taste has a light bitterness, dark chocolate, light coffee bean. Not bad but not great.

Alengrin (3547) - BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2015
Draugt at Borefts, in the iconic windmill belonging to the brewery. Thin, light beige head over a hazy very dark chestnut brown beer, not opaquely black. Aroma of espresso beans and fresh black coffee, caramel, beef broth, bayleaf, bitter chocolate. Clean fruity onset, hints of candied dates and raisins, soft carbo, smooth (albeit rather thin) caramelly malt backbone upon which an indeed a delicate yet strong structure of refined coffee is built, blending in perfectly with the roasted malts in the background and with a further bittering peppery hops effect, which has been kept restrained in order not to interfere too much with the coffee - with a somewhat thin ending as a result. Still, very agreeable example of a coffee stout.

MadRobin (2440) - Silver Spring, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Poured from 22 oz. bottle after cellaring for 10 months. Nearly opaque, dark rusty brown with a thin khaki head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate. Taste of dark roasted coffee, chocolate, dark toast and roasted malt. Medium/full body and medium carbonation. Lots of coffee and not much complexity, but still rather good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not so much aroma with a little roast and coffee. Dark brown with a nice carb and a little white head. Nice sibtile cappucino and caramel maltiness with biscuits amd stuff.. good drinkable in the sun.
