What the Brewery Says: "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."
It's a stout, so obviously it pours dark with a nice bit of head. The smell is a pleasant mix of an espresso machine and a bakery.
Taste-wise, the beer has a moderate coffee taste that isn't at all overpowering. It's also got some hints of dark chocolate and creaminess to it that give it a latte feel to it. It all went down smooth and disappeared into the throat with a dry finish and virtually no aftertaste.
All in all, I rather enjoyed this beer. I wonder if I can have it in the mornings to wake up...
