bierkoning (10162) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2012
Bottle. Almost black and opague. Firm head. Hints of licorice and pepper in the aroma. Thin. Malty flavor with hints of apple. Roast, licorice and just hints of pepper. The chili is very well integrated in the beer and not dominant at all. Good balance. Maybe a slight burn in the aftertaste. Good beer!

PotjeBier (1653) - 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.

thewolf (11158) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2012
Bottle. [thanks bierkoning]
Pours deep brownish black with a firm, medium, frothy, beige head. Aroma has fine chocolate, soft metallic, peppery hot. Medium carbonation, fine dry and fairly full mouthfeel for the ABV. Flavour has deep dark chocolate, lightly roasted, mild herbal. The chili lingers and gets more potent later on. Light grainy bitterness. Well-balanced and very drinkable.

Martinus (2798) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2012
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.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2013
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.

TheJvd (833) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2013
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.

jmgreenuk (4258) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle at Rooie Dop, Utrecht at the RBESG 2013 opening night. Poured a deep mahogany with a thin off-white head. The aroma is dry dusty yeast. The flavour is medium bitter, spicy with liqourice. The chili is there but it adds to the flavour without dominating.
