COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.”

Scipio's rating

Scipio (1275) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2013
Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma contains lots and lots of coffee, along with a good balance of nuts and chocolate. Very roasted impression here as well. As expected and advertised, the taste is big on coffee. I find some nice syrupy caramel flavors to go along with chocolate. Underneath is some raisin fruitiness that is less apparent at the initial taste but gathers strength as you savor the flavors. Aftertaste is coffee, chocolate, and hints of those raisins. Medium to full in body, a slick and somewhat oily texture, with some decent carbonation. I find this one more similar to a stout in style. Heavy coffee elements usually make me happy, and this doesn’t disappoint. An easy recommendation.

Draft @ Beavertown Extravaganza'17. Brune, col beige. Arôme offre de fines effluves de café, grains concassés, rétro reste centré sur un effet grillé ponctué par des effluves modérées de houblons, classiques - c-hops, Palais est malté, grillé, caramel, café douceur reste moyenne avec un profil et caractère malté clairement US ponctué par une fine pointe de chocolaté. Petite amertume de fin de bouche qui contrebalance l'apport des malts.

Keg, BD Shepherds Bush. A really big beer. Huge molasses and coffee aroma. Pours hell black, big tan head. This is like a massively boozy after dinner coffee, with dark fruits in the back. Huge flavours. Awesome.
