Bottle@Home. Chocolate, dark malts and a hint of chilli in the aroma. Black, light brown head, good lace. Light sweet, roasted, chocolate, light bitter, strange taste. Like chilli peppers but without the warming/hot feeling. Medium to full bodied. Flavourful, nice, but chilli?

Original porter with some unusual spices. The chili is present and fits quite well. Good beer.

Countbeer (4372) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Medium sized darker beige light brown colored foamy head on top of a black colored beer. Aroma has some good notes of oatmeal, roast, dust, chalk, coffee and chocolate. Flavour has notes of dust, coal, roast, coffee, some chocolate, yeast, nuts, porridge, some coffee beans and malt toast with bitters and a light light spicy touch... Now we know... Aftertaste is a mix of bitters, cacoa, malt toast, light hint of something spicy and some dusty coffee tones. Low carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, medium to lightly fuller bodied and a creamy texture. If I didn’t know about the pepper I wouldn’t have guessed it either. The pepper is not noticeable, but than again I love spicy food. Next to that it’s a decent beer, an absolutely for 4% ABV! Well done!

IluvatarMilan (246) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2013
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.

McTapps (3879) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2013
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.

bartlebier (1634) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUL 17, 2013
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. Black beer with a lacy brownish head. Spicy, coffee and licorice aroma. Chili, coffee and dark chocolate flavour. Very nice and lovely beer :-)
