kappldav123 (4700) - GERMANY - JAN 26, 2014
Thanks to WillemsUrenkel for that bottle. Looks really good. Beer in the glass dark black, nice head. Amazing aroma, warming-malty, stouty, a bit smokey. Starts intense malty, stouty, earthy. Gets milder and milder, but not washy, still soft-malty with some earthy-smokey notes. I like that beer!

Countbeer (4301) - 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!

jmgreenuk (4006) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2013
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.

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 6, 2013
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.

DutchDrebus (3790) - 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!
