ElDesmadre (2018) - 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.

ShivanDragon (2017) - 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.

PotjeBier (1886) - 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.

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.

tricksta_p (1706) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2014
Dark brown colour with a nice beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee. Did not really notice the chili peppers. Great little Porter at a surprisingly low ABV of 4%.

Abijen (1650) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2014
Pours a dark brown cola ish beer with a good tan head. Smells chocolate, roasted. Tastes watery, malts, roasted and a very very very little pepper on the end. Average carbo, thin body and a dry texture.

MaartenRF10 (1647) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2013
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.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle@Home. Chocolate, dark malts and a hint of chilli in the aroma. Black, light brown head, good lace. Light sweet, roasted, chocolate, light bitter, strange taste. Like chilli peppers but without the warming/hot feeling. Medium to full bodied. Flavourful, nice, but chilli?

bottle shared with dennoman and kraddel, thanks to kermis. Coffee aroma but an overly watery palate. Bit of a buummer.
