3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black with quick fading head. Quite a strong flavoured beer. Dark malts and also a sweet nutty taste. Generally a sweet stout with just a light warming hint of chilli.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(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.

[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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

330ml bottle, shared between 5 at the Tenth Shrewsbury Bottle Share, Dec 14, brought by me, thanks to Benzai for the swap. Big malty, grainy aroma. Taste is molasses with a very subtle chili hit. Fairly weak but still some nice roasted flavours.
