33cl bottle. Hazy dark brown with a small beige head. Light to medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Subtle sweet and bitter tones. Roasted malts, dark chocolate, some coffee and ripe dark fruits. Did not taste any chili at all, still a nice porter though.

Lore (2211) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 19, 2016
dark brown colour, large, though not too dense and quickly disappearing beige head; aroma and taste of some sourness, cocoa, minimal dried fruitiness (mainly sour cherry), some toasted rye bread and nomthing really chili-like...average porter, or even below the average...I’m not impressed at all - this glass goes to my wife :-)

5/8/2012 1:28:34 PM Bottle from Bierkoning. I was resisting trying this beer, leaving it for last, as I’m no fan of the style and chili in a porter just seems weird. But very pleasantly surprised. Dark black body with thin tan head. Nose is malts, molasses and licorice. Taste is similar with molasses and licorice. Slightly watery texture. Chili is well done, not overpowering at all. Warming finish.

Need to try to find this beer again, because what I’d wrote down was crap.

London Cabia ja vichya. Kiltaa tai klubi. Happoinen litku. Ei chili maistu kuumin yhtään.

Koelschtrinker (17730) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 20, 2015
Rund malziger, wässrig röstiger Antrunk. Gergine, kaum erkennbare Bitterkeit. Das genutzte Chili ist nicht einmal im Ansatz erkennbar, was wiederum schade ist. Dennoch ein nettes Session Porter. 8/8/9/8/9/8

rikstar (2308) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2015
0,33l fles uitgeschonken zwart met een crème kraag. Geur en smaak liggen in de droge koffie, bittertje, nootachtig. Tikkeltje dun maat toch met een aangename nasmaak.

Vili (245) - FINLAND - OCT 17, 2015
33cl bottle. Dark brown pour with massive light brown head, some lacing. Aromas of chocolate, coffee and rye bread. Taste is mild, sweet, chocolate and dry. Lots of carbonation, fresh palate. Aftertaste is short and empty. Quite tasty beer but needs more punch. Did not find the chili anywhere, though.

Svesse (7932) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2015
(Draught at Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 26 Aug 2015) Black colour with creamy, beige head. Roasted, malty nose with notes of coffee, dark chocolate and dark bread. Malty, roasted taste with coffee, dark chocolate, roasted grain, a gentle chilli touch and a balanced cacao bitterness. Medium body, quite dry. Tasty and well balanced with a light chilli touch. Nice one.
