Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Boulevard Brewing Company Bully! Porter. I picked up this bottle from the brewery on my visit to Kansas City.
From the Boulevard Brewing Company website: “The intense flavors of dark-roasted malt in Boulevard’s 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.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours dark brown with ruby highlights, a large tan colored head and leaves frothy lacing.
Aroma: Chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, caramel and slightly nutty.
Taste: Roasted malts, dark chocolate, bitter espresso and slightly nutty in the finish.
Overall: Easy to drink and very enjoyable, Boulevard Brewing Company Bully! Porter is tasty. This smooth and creamy Porter weighs in at 6% ABV and is something I would gladly drink more of if it were available here in Northern California. Well done!
