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.

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.

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 (9802) - 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.

Bottled. Pours dark brown with amber highlights. The tan head leaves a fine lace pattern in the glass, and the aroma is that of roasty malt, coffee, and perhaps some chocolate. The flavor is roasted malt, with some chocolate notes. A very fine dry finish and excellent palate--not too carbonated, but with body--make this porter a pleasure to drink. Highly recommended!

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2005
12 oz bottle via trade with jzzbassman - Thanks Monte! - Pours black with ruby highlights and a 2 inch creamy tan head that stays well and laces. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, some coffee and some caramel. Flavor is milk chocolate, roasted malts, caramel and a raisin sweetness at the end that is finished by a coffee bitterness that I really liked. Palate is smooth and pretty well carbonated. A very drinkable porter that I enjoyed much!

jeffin7 (612) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - SEP 14, 2005
Pours black with a huge light tan head that fades very slowly. Aroma is of roast and mild chocolate. Flavor is a rounded roast, mild chocolate, a slight raisin, a slight smoke, a slight sourness in the finish and aftertaste. Body is light to medium palate is a bit watery. NIce boldly roasty porter the thinner body makes it very drinkable but the finish is just a little to thin.

IndianaRed (2436) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 4, 2005
Bottle Pours a clear very dark brown/black with the light bulb barley showing some red highlights. Just a skin of a light brown head and thin but even lacing. dark roasted aromas with lots of semiswet chocolate. Flavors are similar. Not very smokey or charcoaly but a nice rounded roasted flavor. Quite lively carbonation and lacking that common sour bite that a lot of porters have. Very nice.

On tap at the 2005 OBF. I had never heard of this brew or brewery before and was really taken by suprise. Pours a very dark brown with a soft light tan head. Very sweet and rich chocolate up front, nice light roastiness with a light touch of coffee in the finish. Very smooth and well built porter.
