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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
33cl bottle shared between five at the 8th December 2014 Shrewsbury Bottle Exchange Group meeting: cheers Mat for bringing this. Dark brown body with a tanned topping. Struggled to find any ’chilli’ worth mentioning, mild flavours throughout to be honest, malty and slightly chocolate in nature but a bit of a let down with the alcohol level not helping the beers cause too greatly either. A weak Porter in depth, flavour and alcohol: expected so much more.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

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!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
5/8/2012 1:28:34 PM 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.

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!
