COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The intense flavors of dark-roasted malt in our rendition of the classic English porter are perfectly balanced by a generous and complex hop character. Bully! Porter’s robust nature makes it the ideal companion to a variety of foods, from seafood to chocolate.

12oz bottle BB 07/09/06. Pours dark brown/black w/ a nice tan head...leaves good lace as it falls, but never completely fades away as I drink. Aroma is moderate in intensity, but interesting. Shows some dominant roast and also something grape-like...espresso is suggested as is dark chocolate...and something slightly sour seems to be lingering around there too. Fascinating aroma, although it doesn’t jump out of the glass. Mouthfeel is light for the impression this beer makes with its deep color. The flavor doesn’t let me down like their pale ale though...this beer is full of flavor. Malt is a little more pronounced and piney hops show up, otherwise the flavor echoes the aroma. And I do agree with that Comm. Desc. that the beer is perfectly balanced. It does cut to a fairly quick finish though...leaving just a bit of lingering roastiness on the tongue. A very solid beer.

Good sized light brown head of fine bubles. Dense and creamy on top. Rich and malty aroma with a little bit of chocolate and nuts. Color is a very dark brown/black. Head reduces slowly. Wow, strong burnt flavor. Loads of carbon and cigarette ash. Almost gritty on the palate. The smoky ash is not detected in the aroma. Quite harsh. Bitter also. Not a good combination. Little bit of chocolate but mostly smokey ash. Finish is dry and bitter and gritty. Something does not sit well with me with this brew.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2008 Dark brown with tan foam. A medium chocolate and roasted coffee nose. It has a leathery walnut and coffee flavor that has a medium body. The finish is brisk and clean with a licorice hint.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2005
12 oz bottle, via ericmc83. Pours a dark brown, mostly clear with a billowy light brown head. Nice chocolate and light coffee nose, some light roasted notes and licorice too. Slightly lactic flavor with bitter chocolate and coffee in the finish. Fairly light bodied and a little thin. Nice soft carbonation gives it a decent mouthfeel. Not bad overall, a little on the thin side. With a little bit moe body this would be really good.

Pours deep dark brown. Aroma is full of sweet roasted malt, coffee and milk chocolate. Taste is very smooth, and has a coffee/chocolate flavor kind of hoppy.

Strykzone (4831) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2005
A huge tan colored head with staying power is what greets you to this beer. Patience is a virtue in this case. Once the foam ebbed the beer underneath was a treat. The usual undertones of a porter were evident such as caramel, coffee, and chocolate. Most notable was the wonderful balance of the beer. A slightly bitter start led to a pleasant sweet finish. In between was pretty good, too.

Ratman197 (9536) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2005
Bottle poured a translucent brownish-black with a large long lasting brown head. Aromas of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, with just a hint of coffee. Palate was medium bodied and a bit watery for the style. Flavors of bitter chocolate, and some coffee with a dry slightly bitter finish.

The first sip had a noticably bitter after taste that I found unpleasant but after the first bottle I grew quite fond of the unique blend of flavors. Anyone who likes dark beers should give Bully a try.
