Port Brewing's Board Meeting, brown ale, brewed with coffee and cocoa nibs. 8.5% ABV.

A: Pours a dark brown. Over two fingers of lighter cocoa brown head. Black in the glass, with a light golden brown in the dimple. Almost no lacing, and just a touch of sheeting.

S: Lighter bodied coffee aroma dominates. A touch of powdered cocoa in the background. A touch of candy malt.

T/MF: Tastes more like a porter than a brown ale. Slightly soft on the palate, but with a decent carbonation at the same time. More of that lighter coffee. Just a hint of dark chocolate.

Not a bad start to the evening, though not an amazing beer by any stretch. Just quite solid.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle, into a Belgian tulip glass.
