In this beer blog, we are going to sample the second beer from Coronado Brewing.  It is their Blue Bridge Coffee Stout.  If you read my earlier beer blog on their everyday IPA, you know the history of this California craft brewery.  If you have not, please, read it to get to know Coronado Brewing.  Let us get into this coffee stout.

It has a jet black color with a tan to light brown color head. The aroma has a heavy coffee with a burn chocolate notes. The taste has a smooth creamy chocolate with a dry coffee aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer.

Here is a description from the beer bottle:

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.

In the end, I was pretty excited when this craft brewery hit the shelves here in Michigan.  I have been wanting to try their beers.  I love my coffee stouts.  It was a no brainer to pick up bottle of their coffee stout.  I was not impressed with this beer.  It just seems a little water down.  It is not good and it could be better. It is pretty than most on the market.  There is better coffee stouts on the market.  It might be ok in the warm weather in California.  Here in the Midwest, we need a heavy stouts and porters.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!
