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.

egajdzis (5364) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2005
Poured a dark brown, ruby (almost purple) color with a medium sized, bubbly, tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of light chocolate and roast, cherries, nuts, and wood. Chocolate, lots of roastiness, and faint dried fruitiness in the taste. A flavorful and robust porter.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2005
Brown body, lasting tan head. Light roasty, dark fruity aromas. Good robust flavors; black patent and hoppy bitterness balances a nice mocha sweetness. Malty, full bodied, assertive. Nice!

Dark brown maybe black appearance with good creamy head and lacing that didn’t stop. There was a roasted smell and hinted towards the sweetness to come. Taste was sweet with hints of caramel and some honey.

ChazyRPh (583) - Chazy, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2005
bottle from secret santa...dark brown pour, with some red tint...nice pale brown head. Aroma of sweet dark fruit, chocolate malt. Nice bright roasted malt flavor, some hop kick to start also. Middle sweetens a little, and the end finishes beautifully with a nice dose of choco-bitterness. This is a very well balanced beer, and I am very grateful to have had the chance to sample it.
