4.11/5 rDev -1.2%
22oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Very dark brown with a two-finger head
S: The cocoa nibs and coffee mentioned on the label are prominent aromas (note cocoa nibs not chocolate). After that toasted malt and a bit of toffee
T: Matches the nose perfectly. Bitter cocoa & coffee with some pleasant malted notes
M: Medium-bodied, a bit bitter
O: This beer does a great job of featuring its additions and is quite tasty as such. That being said I feel it could use a bit more hop/alt support for balance as the additions are almost all I taste. That would take it from very good to great. Overall a very well made beer & I enjoyed it

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a pint glass. Pours a brownish black with a two finger head. The first note to hit the nose is the cocoa. There is hint of coffee in the background. I like that it isn't over whelming. There is a nice amount of malt that enhances the flavor going down. A very good brown ale. I will be drinking this one again.

On tap at the Lost Abbey Brewery in San Marcos.
Pours black with a good beige head that soon reduces to a ring and partial coat but leaves some lacing.
Aroma: mostly coffee with a faint malt base.
Flavor: coffee overwhelms the dark malts, but it is rather good coffee.
Feel: medium body; medium carbonation.
O: recommended for coffee lovers

Bomber served cold into a pint glass.
Board Meeting is a dark brown color with good clarity. It has thick head but settles fairly quickly. There is some nice lacing left behind.
Aroma is nice and roasty like a good porter but with obvious coffee influence.
Flavor is strong but balanced with a good level of coffee that doesn't overwhelm. Nce sweetness up front with roasty bittersweet coffee and chocolate.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and nicely carbonated.
Overall a very tasty coffee brown slash porter.

Nice looking beer - nice chocolate body, sticky layered mocha lace. The ingredients list namedrops some pretty impressive purveyors of beans and nibs from SoCal - the beer showcases them nicely. Nice and rich - layers of well integrated coffee, creamy chocolate, roasted malt. A really nice coffee brown - roasty, lower bitterness, creamy and rich. Would definitely grab more of this.
