MrHangover (4334) - 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 Id hoped for, being a chili porter. Still great flavours and has a medium long finish. Dry on the mouthfeel, quite decent beer.

tricksta_p (4213) - 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%.

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle @ home. Aroma is roasty malt, slight caramel and chili. Flavour is quite roasty and dry with a very slight chili note. Nice, especially for the abv!

ShivanDragon (3859) - 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.

bartlebier (3815) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 17, 2013
33cl bottle, merci bierkoning voor de serie. Pours a velvet black with stable head. Aroma of deep roasted malts, some liquorice and coffee beans. Very smooth mf, pleasant palate and rich taste for a 4% porter. The chili adds more of a fresh zing to the earthy hop pepper notes than it does carry a sting of itself. Chalky yeast profile helps keep this porter pleasantly dry. Surprisingly harmonious brew without any off notes, true to the style. Would be happy to drink this again anywhere in or outside of NL.

teddybeer (3697) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 11, 2012
[Thanks to bierkoning]. 33cl bottle. Black colour with a good formation of a light tan head with a nice lacing and a decent lasting. Aroma is toasty, with chili hints and roasty. Flavour is toasty, roasty, with a final slightly bittery, dry and smoky. Carbonation is low to medium. Body is medium.

ElDesmadre (3625) - Mikołw, POLAND - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle, traded with Bierkoning. Awesome aroma of cocoa, chocolate, tobacco, some coffee and roast. Deep and very pleasant. The taste doesnt 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 isnt upfront but it warms the throat a bit, taking over the role of the ABV. Good beer but I was expecting more.

Bottle, pours dark brown color, nice beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, bit spicy. Taste is medium bitter, coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, really only some hints of chilli. In general nice one.

DwarfeD (3257) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JUL 25, 2016
33cl bottle. Hazy dark brown with a small beige head. Light to medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Subtle sweet and bitter tones. Roasted malts, dark chocolate, some coffee and ripe dark fruits. Did not taste any chili at all, still a nice porter though.
