Bottle. Oaty aroma, no signs of peppers yet. Soft, medium bodied taste with some toasted malts, slight hint of spice and pepper. Very well hidden, much like the low abv is.

Thank you bierkoning for that one. Well, thank you beerkoning and not thank you Berghoeve for that smokey piwo. Tough one from start to end with some roasted malt and some chili in the aroma. Well, the smoked end and aftertaste kill all points. That´s it.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from bierkoning - with many thanks. Pours ot of the bottle in a unclear dark brown, almost black colour, low head and medium body. Nose of roasted malt. Taste of leather, very bittersweet chocolat, torf, nuts, burnt malt and roast. Hints of smoke. Finsihes quite sweet with some espresso hints. Not that easy to drink, but very spicy and aromatic.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle, merci bierkoning voor de serie. Pours a velvet black with stable head. Aroma of deep roasted malts, some liquorice and coffee beans. Very smooth mf, pleasant palate and rich taste for a 4% porter. The chili adds more of a fresh zing to the earthy hop pepper notes than it does carry a sting of itself. Chalky yeast profile helps keep this porter pleasantly dry. Surprisingly harmonious brew without any off notes, true to the style. Would be happy to drink this again anywhere in or outside of NL.

Bottle at Rooie Dop, Utrecht at the RBESG 2013 opening night. Poured a deep mahogany with a thin off-white head. The aroma is dry dusty yeast. The flavour is medium bitter, spicy with liqourice. The chili is there but it adds to the flavour without dominating.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown beer with a creamy tanned head on top. Aroma has licorice, fresh pepper and some bay leaves influences. Flavour is quite bittersweet, licorice and molasses are really present. Not so spicey as I’d hoped for, being a chili porter. Still great flavours and has a medium long finish. Dry on the mouthfeel, quite decent beer.
