RBESG ’13. Bottle at de Rooie Dop brewdungeon shared by Benzai, thanks! Pours dark brown to black with a medium thanned head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate and some earthy hops. Taste also has roasted malts, chocolate and a little bit of chili. Medium body and carbo. Not as spicy as you would expect from a chili porter, but quite nice.

Bottle. Black with fast disappearing beige head that leaves some nice bubbles. Coffee and some licorice, dry spicy notes and some tart fruits (black berries) and some young walnuts. Don't really get much chili here, but overall a nice porter, quite dry and complex. Good stuff for 4% ABV.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance:Black with a large tanned head , but with poorr retenttion and not much lacing.
Aroma: Coffee, vegetables,roasted malts,ash
Taste: tQuite some vegetables but misses the spiceyness of the chili’s thin roasted malts in the back and a hint of coffee.
High carbonation, too thin body for a porter.
This last + the to high carbonation is a bit of a deal breaker.
I was dissapointed by this, Because not much of a porter and not much Chili’s. More a regulare vegetable brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2014 0,33 l bottle. Nearly black in the glass and nearly no head. Dark Chocolate and coffee on the nose. Starts the same, light floral background, definitive not a sweet porter. Hints of chili are discreet, more a minimal spicy and salty sourness, in the aftertaste. Certainly not a beer for everyday, but interesting.

Bottle, trade with Bierkoning, huge thanx!
Barva: černá s rubínovou jiskrou. Pěna hustá, vysoká a sdržící. Vůně: zemitá kávová a sladová, velice příjemná. Chuť: plné tělo, chuť se stopou hořké čkololády, kávy a lehce i čili. Zatím nejlepší z téhle sorty piv.

Thanks to bierkoning!
Pours a dark almost black colour with a tanned head.
Strong nutty/fruity aroma, some sweet notes there.
Roasted nutty flavour, great balance between bitter and sweet.
Goes down smooth, medium bodied.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Black with large tan head that disappears fairly quickly. Chocolate, rotten vegetables, spices, roast, ash, hints of liquorice. Little sweetness, dry. Aroma is a bit too veggie, surprisingly full body.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Huge tan head. Pours opaque chocolate brown. Chili burn throughout. Lots of darkly roasted malt flavor. Not much happening on the finish other than the chili. Medium body. The head seems to be obscuring the aroma, or it doesn’t have much aroma.... not sure yet.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Oaty aroma, no signs of peppers yet. Soft, medium bodied taste with some toasted malts, slight hint of spice and pepper. Very well hidden, much like the low abv is.
