As a contribution to beer and the beer community, this is pretty impressive. You have be a pretty creative brewer to consider how coconut and curry could work together in a beer. Neither flavour is especially strong, although both are noticeable, with the cocnut being prominent at first pour, and the curry arriving as the brew slowly warms in the glass. This is an excellent specialty beer.

Rating #956 - February 7, 2014 - $19.10 for 6 341mL Bottles in a Sherbrooke taster 6-pack - Pours an opaque nut-brown with a bubbly off-white head. Aroma is coconut oil, coffee, light nuttiness. Palate is very light for a porter, very mild caramel chocolate malt. Overloaded with a light coconut curry cream texture. Not spicy enough for the moniker "Heatseeker" but very tasty.

Hmmmm, pours black, thin head. Aroma of incense, curry powder, fruit. Taste is coffee, dark chocolate, fruity, mild curry flavor, was expecting a bit more curry flavor. It actually is quite unique and tasty, a few people said it’s a one off but I found it easy to drink..

Sammy (8849) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2013
Pours a muddy black with quick dissipating head. Spice in the aroma. Taste is curry and salt, coconut not to bad. A few mouthfuls in fine, its a novelty beer. Bottle from Presario.

Dark reddish brown with massive yellowish head. Aroma of well, curry (chili, fenugreek) with some toast behind. Taste starts out with chocolate, etc, before rapidly moving to strongly curry flavoured. Like burnt, watery korma. It’s an interesting idea though, and not wholly unsuccessful. The beer-curry balance is wonky though, and it’s seriously too bubbly.

andrewturba (1036) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 7, 2012
Pours a very dark brown with tan head that laces the glass quite well. Aromas of curry up front with mild-medium coconut, some sweetness and light roasted malt. Flavours consist of roasted malt, light coconut, and a tangy/spicy curry finish. Very interesting and well balanced beer, out of the ordinary experiments is what makes craft beer interesting!

Reimer96 (1311) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2012
Pours a clear black car with a big brown head that dissipates quickly but leaves a small ring. Aroma is sweet dark malts mixed with coconut and then a noticeable but not overpowering curry. Taste is the malty coconut up front transitioning into a slicy/sour curry taste. In terms of the ingredients used they are mixed extremely well as neither are overpowering but noticeable and balance very well.

Thought this would be an interesting beer to try but was left disappointed. Poured dark with thin head. Light initial flavor, especially for a porter. Curry was masked by the porter flavor ro give almost a mango aftertaste. Interesting idea but not a beer I would buy twice

341ml brown bottle. dark brown pour with a thin light brown film of head. Nose is big on curry, sweetish cinnamon notes. Taste has some dark malts, caramel, light chocolate. Slight tang in the finish, with lingering cola and roast aftertastes. Average body, some spritzy carbonation. Not really much going on here... maybe this bottle is past it’s prime.

341mL bottle poured dark brown color with big tan head and thin lacing. Aroma is of curry and coconuts. Taste is sweet coconut and malt with a predominant curry spiciness. Medium bodied and moderately carbonated for a pleasant mouthfeel. Another interesting presentation from the folks at Ally Kat Brewing.
