sic1314 (4773) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2013
Poured a dark brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma of roasted chocolate malt. Medium, oily body, flavour of the aroma, bot a huge amount of the chili n evidence, more a bit in the aftertaste

Martinus (4735) - Baarle-Nassau, 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.

ShivanDragon (4698) - 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.

MrHangover (4693) - 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.

teddybeer (4253) - 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.

Aniela (4215) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2013
Bottle. Black beer with a lacy brownish head. Spicy, coffee and licorice aroma. Chili, coffee and dark chocolate flavour. Very nice and lovely beer :-)

3.9
bartlebier (4214) - 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.

3.6
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!

3.3
ElDesmadre (3984) - 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.

3.5
PotjeBier (3834) - 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.
