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.”

fraternie (1021) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Rich and malty with deep roasted coffee and dark chocolate flavors backed by a blast of fresh, piney hops and a hint of fireplace smoke. Smooth and lightly carbonated with the abv covered well, this lingers on a long, bitter black coffee note.

BuckeyeBoy (8496) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 5, 2017
On tap at the brewery pours out a dark brown topped with a tan head. Nose is nice coffee chocolate and some vanilla. Taste is more of the nice roast coffee chocolate malts some sweetness.

Wonderfully thick full and complex beer. Super dark and strong but stays true to a brown ale without venturing into stout category. Cornerhouse berkeley ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Heidbummer (889) - SCOTLAND - SEP 12, 2017
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.
