mmahut (1015) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 10, 2014
Bottle. Dark body, medium creamy tan head. Aroma has dark chocolate, toasty nose, little bit of tabacco ash. Taste has high roasty bitterness, very little chilli in the after taste, almost not noticiable. Medium acidic sweetness in the finish. Body is medium, flat carbonation. The chilli is hidden.

Straling (363) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2014
Thanks to bierkoning! Pours a dark almost black colour with a tanned head. Strong nutty/fruity aroma, some sweet notes there. Roasted nutty flavour, great balance between bitter and sweet. Goes down smooth, medium bodied.

Douberd (2332) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2014
(Berghoeve 1842 Hammer Brand Chili Porter) Bottle 330ml, thanks to bierkoning. Poured into a snifter, ABV 4% Very deep brown, almost totally black colour on the body, small but thick brown head, with very good retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate, lactic, pepper, chillies. Taste has rostiness, light chocolate and coffee, not as much burn as I expected, the chilli barely notable on the back of the throat. Good though. Thin body, soft carbonation. For a 4% beer is more than good.

ElDesmadre (1605) - Mikołów, POLAND - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle, traded with Bierkoning. Awesome aroma of cocoa, chocolate, tobacco, some coffee and roast. Deep and very pleasant. The taste doesn’t live up to the expectations, could definitely use more body and depth. Very earthy flavour, with a chocolate-coffee-roast finish, leaving behind notes of tobacco. The chili luckily isn’t upfront but it warms the throat a bit, taking over the role of the ABV. Good beer but I was expecting more.

MelvinKalksma (16) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2014 Nice dark beer that tastes a little like coffee and pepper. Problem with this beer is that it?s a little too much water. The taste is nice but doesn?t pack a punch.

Bottled, thanks Benzai! Near black, huge, mildly gushing head. Cocoa aroma. Dry with light body and spritzy mouthfeel. Chocolate, light chili, and coffee. Salty mid bitter finish with slight chili tingle.

Abijen (1497) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2014
Pours a dark brown cola ish beer with a good tan head. Smells chocolate, roasted. Tastes watery, malts, roasted and a very very very little pepper on the end. Average carbo, thin body and a dry texture.
