Bottle courtesy of Rori. I’ve had this on tap, and in bottle many times, but this one was really special. Aged 2 years this bottle was so much better than it was when I originally had it. The ginger really stands out and has mellowed out since originally bottled. I think this is an absolutely brilliant brew. If you can find one now...I’d strongly recommend drinking it!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
drunken jerks... i dragged this back from the right coast... shared it on 1/25/2010.
straw tinted golden yellow pour with a spotty white head.
the best way to describe the aroma would be a mix of the asian and indian isles at the international market... man, this is weird... and pretty effen cool to smell... sweet curry powder, coriander!, ginger, turmeric, clove, cinnamon, orange peel, a dusty vacant store and pale malty sweetness.
the flavor is quite yeasty and a smaller version of the aroma.... luckily , the curry is subdued. though there is an umami note which really comes out as it sits. light lemon-y finish combines with ample carbonation and a medium body to make this one crazy easy drinking beer... though not the best imperial wit it IS pretty friggin odd. 8/4/8/3/16/3.9

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden body with a white rocky head. Very spicy aroma, ginger root, cinnamon, thyme, and some spicy yeast notes. Fruity with peach and berry tones amongst a mild etoh warming. Nice ale, but quite expensive.
