bierkoning (13590) - La Tropica/Doarp, 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!

jaghana (6220) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle 33cl from bierkoning thanks a lot. A dark beer with huge brownish head. Nose is on smoked and coffee notes. Aroma is mostly dry on dark caramel, bitter chocolate with roasted notes and an astringent yeast note. Finish has dark chocolate and smokes notes, chili notes are low only perceptible in the peppery aftertaste. Not bad, for a low alcohol.

PotjeBier (3628) - 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 (12735) - 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 (4692) - 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.

33cl bottle from ABCBeers. Thick creamy tan head. Clear black pour. Slight chocholate and chilli taste. Great for the ABV.

bottle at home ... deep black ... bubbly tan head ... soft smoked malts ... dark roast nose ... dark malts ... chocolate roast ... lightest smoke ... light chilli spice ... not enough spice ... and not roasty enough... not bad ... but i had higher hopes

Bullit (4675) - Burgos, SPAIN - MAR 5, 2013

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.
