(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. ElDesmadre (3630) - 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.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2014 Nice dark beer that tastes a little like coffee and pepper. Problem with this beer is that it?s a little too much water. The taste is nice but doesn?t pack a punch. omhper (25714) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2014
Bottled, thanks Benzai! Near black, huge, mildly gushing head. Cocoa aroma. Dry with light body and spritzy mouthfeel. Chocolate, light chili, and coffee. Salty mid bitter finish with slight chili tingle. Abijen (2571) - ’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. Bosbouw (3004) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2014
Mooie zwarte kleur met een volle lichtbruine kraag. Ruikt koffie, vanille, peper, vanille. Smaakt vol, vanille, crème, peper, koffie. Iets dun. RW80 (2739) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2014
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.
