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.

Andy_ (664) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 3, 2014
Cola colored beer with dense beige head. Aroma has loafy maltiness and chocolaty and cocoaish sweetness. Flavor is roasted malty and coffeeish. Palate is thin and has stinging bitterness. Finish has slowly building dry bitterness, coffee and mocha. A bit too thin.

kansascityCW (109) - kansas city, Missouri, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Dark brown pour with a big, fluffy head. Aroma is big on roasted malts, a little chocolate. Taste is slightly sweet in the beginning with that chocolate note and finishes roasty and dry. Little bit thin but still coats the mouth nicely. Overall a very good porter.

12oz bottle purchased last week at Lukas Liquor in Missouri.... Bottle is best by 3/11/14. Thanks, Lukas Liquor. Hopefully itís still tasting good, seeing as how porters are not hop-forward... Dark brown / red color. Good finger of light brown head. Leaves good, thicker lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp light soft carbonation. Pretty dry finish. Toasty aroma. Light chocolate, but minimal malt character on it. Bigger bitter taste than expected, minimal sweet. OK porter... But canít help but think that itís a little off, and not in the way that I expected. Sort of an astringent big bitterness, and not much int he way of malt flavor. Light metallic, too. This deserves a re-rate. I guess Iíll just go ahead and throw out the other 3 bottles of Boulevard I picked up from Lukas (assholes...).

Bottle. This is deeply roasted porter with a bitter unsweetened cocoa finish. This is a near perfect specimen of the breed.

Beachmaster (110) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 20, 2014
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a deep black, with a moderate tan head which slowly fades, leaving a disk. Good lacing. Nose is dark malt, and taste is dark malt and dark roast coffee. Fairly thin mouth feel with a moderate finish nicely balanced by hop bitterness. Very good classic porter.
