Bottled 330ml (BB 11/2013)
Courtesy of bierkoning, tnx Edo! Pitch black color, good beige head. Toasted malty aroma with hints of licorice. Light-bodied. Ashy toasted malty flavor with hints of licorice. Not much chilli burn in my bottle. Just a nice light porter. Should have a bit more body anyway.

teddybeer (2097) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 11, 2012
[Thanks to bierkoning]. 33cl bottle. Black colour with a good formation of a light tan head with a nice lacing and a decent lasting. Aroma is toasty, with chili hints and roasty. Flavour is toasty, roasty, with a final slightly bittery, dry and smoky. Carbonation is low to medium. Body is medium.

altonbrownd (4608) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2012
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.

thewolf (10769) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2012
Bottle. [thanks bierkoning]
Pours deep brownish black with a firm, medium, frothy, beige head. Aroma has fine chocolate, soft metallic, peppery hot. Medium carbonation, fine dry and fairly full mouthfeel for the ABV. Flavour has deep dark chocolate, lightly roasted, mild herbal. The chili lingers and gets more potent later on. Light grainy bitterness. Well-balanced and very drinkable.

PotjeBier (1419) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2012
33 cl (from De Bierkoning) @ home. Almost black color. Head is mocha colored, firm, and quit long lasting, with some lacing. Aroma’s: roasted malt, ground coffee, a hint of ash and some fruit. Flavor is slightly sweet, roasted, a hint of acidity. Body is thin (well, at 4%), but not watery. Finishes with ash, some bitterness and maybe some warmth in the throat. Nice.

dutchbeerpages (1462) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2012
The chili porters I have had so far were all incredibly hot and spicy. Other than that a good porter, lot of liquorice. Great looking beer too. Nice. From De Bierkoning.

jaghana (3488) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle 33cl from bierkoning thanks a lot. A dark beer with huge brownish head. Nose is on smoked and coffee notes. Aroma is mostly dry on dark caramel, bitter chocolate with roasted notes and an astringent yeast note. Finish has dark chocolate and smokes notes, chili notes are low only perceptible in the peppery aftertaste. Not bad, for a low alcohol.

bierkoning (9819) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2012
Bottle. Almost black and opague. Firm head. Hints of licorice and pepper in the aroma. Thin. Malty flavor with hints of apple. Roast, licorice and just hints of pepper. The chili is very well integrated in the beer and not dominant at all. Good balance. Maybe a slight burn in the aftertaste. Good beer!

Benzai (6388) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 17, 2012
33cl bottle @ home, gift from brewers Jurgen and Geralda from brewery Berghoeve. Shared with Dutchdrebus. Almost pitch black color, decent sized brown head. Smell malts, lightly roasty, lightly spicy. Taste roasted malts, hints of chocolate and liquorice, only slightly spicy -which imo is a good thing- that gives the flavor a nice touch. Medium carbo and body. Very good for a beer of only 4%ABV.

DutchDrebus (3430) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - FEB 17, 2012
Bottle shared with benzai. Nice black colour with a big brown coloured head. Smells not much.. Bit coffeeish and spicy. Tastes very roasty, chocolate, not that spicy, just a bit warm. Only 4% abv, but a very rich taste. Another great berghoeve brew!
