Bottle, trade with Bierkoning, huge thanx!
Barva: černá s rubínovou jiskrou. Pěna hustá, vysoká a sdržící. Vůně: zemitá kávová a sladová, velice příjemná. Chuť: plné tělo, chuť se stopou hořké čkololády, kávy a lehce i čili. Zatím nejlepší z téhle sorty piv.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from trade with Bierkonig. A 4 % ABV chili porter? This could be interesting... Pours a jet black body with a medium creamy beige head. Nose is licorice, dark malts, chocolate and hints of leather. And perhaps a slight chili sensation tingling in the background, which I’m honestly not sure whether or not I would have caught if it wasn’t for my prior knowledge that this actually is a chili beer. The same goes for the taste: chocolate, leather, coffee and hints of licorice, with some kind of faint chili burn sensation far, far in the back. Some spice burn seem to come early in the palate; the body is medium but the carbonation is slightly fizzy and the bubbles seem to carry a bit of chili with them, but for the same reason as stated earlier, it’s hard to tell. Nevertheless, a nice porter - particularly for the low ABV. I only wish for a tiny bit more chili.

Dutch stout/porter small, with a hint of green bellpepper. The tangy taste is really powerful compared to the low alcohol

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 Black colour, tan head. Loads of chocolate in the nose, roasted malts and caramel. Light bitter flavour, light sweet, roasted malts, only light green bell pepper. Quite light body, but still creamy. Finish chocolate and cacao.
Nice, but why is it called chiliporter?
(From 33cL bottle @ home. From trade with bierkoning. Thanks!)
Update: 2 July 2013
Had another bottle, during RBESG 2013. It had a nice chili touch then, without dominating.
