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
