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.

Poured a dark brown with a huge creamy tan head that had great retention and lots of lacing.

The aroma was figs, sweet chocolate and light hops.

The flavor was slightly sweet chocolate malts, figs, and coffee with a light bitter finish. A well balanced beer. The mouthfeel was creamy and velvety (carbonation just right) with a medium to thin body.

Overall, a very fine porter.

Thanks to RobertsReality for this. I drank this as I watched USC shove it up Oklahoma’s ass last night (I like liberal states and hate "Cowboy" states). Pours burnt umber with a big, creamy light tan head. Aroma of malt, chocoff, some prunes and cognac. Tastes malty, with chocoff and a slight rauchy hit at the finality. Very smooth at the finish. A very good porter.

This is a very good porter. I like the coffee taste in it and the fact that while it is very flavorful, it is very smooth. I enjoy this one year round.

I think this is Boulevard’s best beer. Nice roasted aroma and flavor. I usually prefer the more robust porters to the dry porters. But, as for Dry Porters, this is a good beer.

Dark-brown walnut color, not quite opague. Smell is milk chocolate, weak coffee, and dry toast. Mouthfeel hard but thin. A little low on the chocolate and a little high on the dry toast for me. A dryish version of a porter. Not bad. Could stand being thicker and sweeter.

Bully! Porter poured dark brown and came crowned was large light brown head. It produced a pleasent sweet aroma. The flavor, while having elements of sweetness, was subdued enough that made me second guess its classification. The predominant flavor was a dry roast coffee with a slight bitterness. It finished smooth without much aftertaste.

jefcon (1363) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2004
Nots of malt and caramel, more reminiscent fo a stout than of a porter. Reddish brown with a slight diminishing head. This beer’s high points are on flavor, with a heavy roast chocolate presence dominates. Lacing follows the beer down the glass. There be hops here, and they are well-developed in the brew. Best effort from this brewer.

Bully Porter is another fine contribution from Boulevard. Roasted malts and a nice boquet of flavors, coffee and chocolate. Yes, you can notice the hops. Nice finish, and a good look about it.

Bought a sixer of this on the recommendation of the St. Louis crew during my August vacation. This beer pours a dark brown color with a small to medium sized off tan head which dissipated quickly. Good lacing, swirly creamy apperance.... aroma of cocoa, vanilla, but also a heavy roast, hop and pineyness. The flavor is medium to full bodied, but extremely creamy and smooth body. Silky to the texture... cocoa, vanilla, roasty beans, pine cones, hoppy bitter mid-finish. Fairly dry cottonmouth finish...sweet but well balanced. Little in the way of excess carbonation... tongue coatingly silky mouthfeel...one of the most subtle but great palate feels out there.
