Douberd (2339) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2014
(Berghoeve 1842 Hammer Brand Chili Porter) Bottle 330ml, thanks to bierkoning. Poured into a snifter, ABV 4% Very deep brown, almost totally black colour on the body, small but thick brown head, with very good retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate, lactic, pepper, chillies. Taste has rostiness, light chocolate and coffee, not as much burn as I expected, the chilli barely notable on the back of the throat. Good though. Thin body, soft carbonation. For a 4% beer is more than good.

Original porter with some unusual spices. The chili is present and fits quite well. Good beer.

teddybeer (2244) - 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.

bartlebier (1803) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUL 17, 2013
33cl bottle, merci bierkoning voor de serie. Pours a velvet black with stable head. Aroma of deep roasted malts, some liquorice and coffee beans. Very smooth mf, pleasant palate and rich taste for a 4% porter. The chili adds more of a fresh zing to the earthy hop pepper notes than it does carry a sting of itself. Chalky yeast profile helps keep this porter pleasantly dry. Surprisingly harmonious brew without any off notes, true to the style. Would be happy to drink this again anywhere in or outside of NL.

PotjeBier (1732) - 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.

ShivanDragon (1722) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2014
zwart met rode gloed en schuimige kraag aroma van volle chocolade die eigenlijk alles overheerst ! de smaken zijn redelijk zoet, gebrande/geroosterde mouten, licht bittertje, licht/zwakke body, redelijk moutig, licht kruidig, maar voor een biertje met maar 4% toch goede smaken in de lichte body.

dutchbeerpages (1634) - 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.

ElDesmadre (1623) - Mikołów, POLAND - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle, traded with Bierkoning. Awesome aroma of cocoa, chocolate, tobacco, some coffee and roast. Deep and very pleasant. The taste doesn’t live up to the expectations, could definitely use more body and depth. Very earthy flavour, with a chocolate-coffee-roast finish, leaving behind notes of tobacco. The chili luckily isn’t upfront but it warms the throat a bit, taking over the role of the ABV. Good beer but I was expecting more.

Bottle thanks to Bierkoning. Dark brown, almost black colour with a wonderful tan head. Nice aroma of chocolat and roasted malts with a chili hint. Taste is soft roasted malts, mild coffee and sweet chocolat. Smooth carbonation, decent body. Nice long chocolat aftertaste.

Bottle, pours dark brown color, nice beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, bit spicy. Taste is medium bitter, coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, really only some hints of chilli. In general nice one.
