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! Porterís robust nature makes it the ideal companion to a variety of foods, from seafood to chocolate.

Dogbrick (7586) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 19, 2004
Acquired via trade. Pours a relatively dense dark brown color with a medium thin beige head. Thin, sticky lacing throughout the glass. The aroma is roasty with cocoa, coffee and chocolate. Medium-bodied and rather robust for a Porter. Flavors of chocolate, coffee and malt dominate, with a hint of hops in the flip side. The finish is smooth, almost creamy at times with a lightly hopped flavor and even a bit a spice. Overall a nicely done Porter.

SmellGood (339) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - AUG 18, 2004
A beautiful beer but a somewhat vinegary aftertaste spoiled the beauty. I did not dislike but should probably try another and re-rate.

Brown in color with ruby highlights and a small off-white lacing around the rim. Upfront bitterness and chocolate malt character.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - AUG 13, 2004
12 oz bottle. Almost jet black, just a hint of light pokes through; bit tan bubbly head. Nose chocolaty, lightly vinous, and a bit roasty when a deep whiff is taken. Chocolaty, lightly coffee-accented body, medium-sweet, roastiness apparent near the end...itís a decent porter, but I donít get the fuss at the moment. More on the roasty/bitter end than the sweet.

PorterPounder (5346) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2004
Dark, ruby red appearance with a thin but persisitent off-white head. Chocolately aroma, quite nice. Flavor has some chocolate and coffee notes with a bit of chicory as well - a tad bit of frutiness makes its way in there as well. Dry hoppiness in the back end. Very good solid porter.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 2, 2004
Pours a deep brown with an tan head with wonderful chocolate/coffee aroma and flavor. Not to thick on the palate makes this a great summer porter.

OBF 2004: I really found this porter to be a treat! Rich and filling. Robust and delicious. I really enjoyed this one at the brewers fest.

ElGaucho (2189) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2004
Rich, sweet malt aroma with moderate hops. Clear dark blackish red. Small, tan head. Mostly disappating. Excellent lace. Good, relatively rich porter flavor. Somewhat dry and chalky. Reasonably good hop presence. Well made and pleasant. A very solid offering. I would like it better with a little more sweetness and a touch more alcohol.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2004
Bully! Good name. Good porter. Pours almost black with a nice tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate. Good full body in the mouth. Creamy and smooth with a touch of carbonation. Pleasant bitter coffee, dark chocolate taste. An excellent porter and an excellent beer.
