3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

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?
