The look and smell of Blvd. Bully! Porter are great, and I like most beers from Blvd since it is the main local brew in the KC area, but the Bully! Porter's taste and feel were very disappointing.

A - Dark brown beer with lacy brown foam. Looks great in the bottle, which is stocky with a bulldog logo to match the porter's attitude.

S - Very good with a number of rich flavors present. Not easy to detect in the bottle, but far more so than your typical grocery store domestic.

T - Overwhelmingly bitter. There are hints of dynamic flavors in the beer, but the bitterness is too shocking and strong to appreciate the more subtle notes.

D/M - The mouthfeel is smooth and has just the right amount of bubbles. Unfortunately, the bad taste doesn't allow you to enjoy the smooth feel. The only way to drink it is to chug, and a fairly pricey microbrew should be appreciated comfortably.

Poured into standard pint glass.

A: Very dark dark brown almost black. Almost no light can be seen through the glass when held to a incandescent bulb. There is a solid 1 finger dark tan head that lasted until the end.

S: Acrid and burnt smell with a little bit of molasses sweetness.

T: This one smacked me with bitterness. I don't know if it is from the hops or the roasted grains. Wherever it is coming from it is way over the top for my idea of a porter. I love hoppy beers but not this one. The hop bitterness lingers in the back of my throat for a several minutes between drinks.

M: Prickly carbonated when it first hits my tongue but it settles down to a creamier feel in the back of my throat.

D: I would have to rate this one very low. There are many other porters that work better for me. I like bitter beers and most porters but the combination of a bitter porter misses the mark for me. Boulevard is my home town brewery and several of their beers are among my most loved beers. This one...not so much.

Pours a very light ruby in color, but does appear brown in the glass. Quickly diminishing white cream. Had high hopes for this one, but it seems to be a really basic, stale example. Nose shows a hint of sour fruit. Flavor is really lacking, thin & lacking concentration. Hmmm.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass. dark brown, but not opaque. Head was relatively thin (one finger) with good lacing, which seems to be typical of all Boulevard products. Smell was not great as I could sense the oncoming carbonation. Taste reflected the smell in that the carbonation really shown through and offset the richness which I expect from a good porter. Much like every other style of beer in the Boulevard line, I've had better.
