ClubGonzo (4025) - 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.

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!

jaghana (3916) - 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.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is roasty malt, slight caramel and chili. Flavour is quite roasty and dry with a very slight chili note. Nice, especially for the abv!

Poured a dark brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma of roasted chocolate malt. Medium, oily body, flavour of the aroma, bot a huge amount of the chili n evidence, more a bit in the aftertaste

Martinus (2818) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 Black colour, tan head. Loads of chocolate in the nose, roasted malts and caramel. Light bitter flavour, light sweet, roasted malts, only light green bell pepper. Quite light body, but still creamy. Finish chocolate and cacao.
Nice, but why is it called chiliporter?
(From 33cL bottle @ home. From trade with bierkoning. Thanks!)

Update: 2 July 2013 Had another bottle, during RBESG 2013. It had a nice chili touch then, without dominating.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2013
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.
