Port Brewing beers are typically boldly-flavored American and hop-forward West Coast style ales or lagers, and Board Meeting Brown Ale is no exception. An amplified brown ale, the beer is brewed with liberal additions of coffee from local San Diego roasters, Ryan Brothers, and cocoa nibs sourced from famed San Francisco chocolate maker TCHO. Alcohol by volume is 8.5%.

“Board Meeting offers the malty richness and assertive hop presence that you expect in an American brown ale, but enhanced with pronounced roasted coffee and bitter chocolate aromas and flavors,” Arthur said. “I think people will enjoy this beer by itself and at the table paired with meat dishes like pork, roasts and barbeque. I imagine it’d be pretty good washing down a sausage omelet at breakfast too.”

Pullotettu 13-07-2015. Musta väri, iso kuohuva viipyvä vaahto. Tuoksu tuttu palanut, täyteläinen, raikkaahko. Suutuntuma vetinen, kuohuva, suklainen, nopea, intensiivinen kaakaoaromi jää taustalle. Jotain jää uupumaan, portterin kaipuuta kaiketi. Mutta aika kiva kuitenkin.

Poured into a pint glass. 3.5 A: Black color. Two fingers of foamy tan head. Retention is about average and a decent amount of lacing is left. 4.0 S: Coffee and cocoa nibs hit you right from the start. Dry toastiness, pleasantly nutty, with just a hint of caramel. 4.0 T: Taste is like the nose. Coffee, cocoa, toastiness, nuts. 3.75 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light on the tongue with a bit of creaminess and supremely smooth. 4.0 D: Really enjoying this. Solid all around with great additive flavors. ★ 537 characters DavoleBomb, Jun 14, 2015

ogniskowicz (559) - POLAND - JAN 4, 2016
Aromat to kawa, palone słody, gorzka czekolada, w tle lekki kokos, beczka i orzechy. W smaku bardzo pijalne, zaskakująco lekkie. Pełnia zdecydowanie czekoladowo-orzechowa, ze świetnie rozwijajacą się goryczką i rumowym posmakiem. Kapitalne piwo.

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle in LA. Deep brown almost black pour with big off white head. Chocolate is prominent, then the coffee, over the brown ale base. Finishes with some piney hoppiness and moderate bitterness. Creamy. Excellent souped-up American brown!

TET (2334) - Kaarina, FINLAND - DEC 4, 2015
A very dark brown, a head is big, beige and creamy. Aroma has lots of strong coffee and roastiness, some dark chocolate and sweetness of berries. Taste has coffee, chocolate, mild roastiness, some liquirice and hint of dried and dark fruits in the end. Also lactose sweetness is balancing the taste. Medium+ bodied, smooth carbonation, also smooth and pleasant palate. Strong coffee is nicely presented, especially in the aroma, but that’s just great. Taste has great balance even there are lots of different elements. Magnificent beer.
