Board Meeting (beer)

Board Meeting is an American Brown Ale from Port Brewing Company in San Marcos, California. It’s a Malt Beverage With Coffee And Cocoa Nibs. If there’s one thing that every beer needs more of, it’s cocoa nibs. And this beer has cocoa nibs. It’s very dark for a brown ale, it’s pours almost like a porter. It has a great aroma of roasted coffee, chocolate, and toasted malts. It tastes like you would expect. It’s malty with chocolate and coffee flavors, and there’s a little hazelnut and caramel, maybe some vanilla. It’s delicious and has a much better flavor profile than a Newcastle. It’s 8.5% so I would suggest drinking it after work and not before work.

Vanilla Oatis

            Vanilla Oatis is an oatmeal stout made with vanilla. It’s made by the good people at the Ninkasi Brewing Company in Eugene, Oregon. It has a great aroma of chocolate, roasted coffee, and caramel malts, with a touch of vanilla and a hint of smoke. It tastes like it smells. It’s very malty, and I can taste bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, coffee, smoke, and maybe some toffee. It’s a solid stout, and that hint of vanilla brings a kind of smoothness to it. The alcohol content is 7.2%, which is average, but this beer is not. It’s pretty damn good and I would recommend it for any fan of craft beers.
