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.

on-tap, brouwers

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.
