Aroma is complex Indian spices and Jasmin/cumin. The flavor is complex Indian spices, dark malts, fruit and a mix of acidity and spicy heat in the finish.

Bottle at Appellation Wines tasting. Dark brown body with a faint beige head. Aroma of coriander, bay leaf, charcoal and green pepper. Flavour is very spicy - notes of lemongrass, chillies and coconut. Thin to medium body with a soft fizz. A touch too spicy for me, but itís a really interesting beer.

So Iím having curry for dinner and figured my aperitif would be this Curry Stout because, why not? Deep only black pour with a beige head. With the smell of curry wafting around my kitchen from the beer Iím mostly picking up stout character in the aroma: savory umami, cinnamon, nutmeg, a chocolate like spice I canít pin down. Truly the action curry is making this smell surprisingly sweet. The taste is sweet spicy chocolate with a big dollop of chilli pepper heat but still a sweet cardamom finish. With a Japanese curry this baby shines. A weird ass beer but fun. That sweetness I was getting was Chocolat covered coconut like those "mound" chocolates.

Bottle at Comely Bankers III. Well, this is an interesting beer. Pours murky brown. Nose is the most delicious curry - the curry with coriander, chili etc spices, then lime, coconut, it is quite stunning. Taste has the same components, curry, all the chili and pepper, then come the coconut and lime again, and then kick of the chili. I donít know what to think of this one - it is not a beer Iwould like to sip on Sat evening but still it is good and absolutely well made. Definitely worth tasting.

Bottle thanks to Stuu666. Appearance - opaque black with a lovely fawn head. Nose - like a South Indian curry. Taste - tonnes of fenugreek, kaffir lime and coriander seed. A chilli kick at the end but all on balance. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy and spicy palate. Overall - really very interesting.

Bottled shared at Stone in Asagaya. Thanks Masa! Huge coconut forward nose with red curry notes and an overall Thai curry like spice accompaniment. Super light on the palate, almost water-like. Lots of curry spices especially cumin. Hides the abv immaculately and that coconut rolls through the palate and into the finish. Cayenne burn on the finish. However a bit much, seriously.

Bottle sharing @ Budapest. // Super interesting from first sip to last. Really well balanced between sweetness of dark malts and array of spices. Definitely sweet up front with some nice heat/curry at the end to temper it. Oily in the mouth. Pretty serious brew overall. Great.

22 oz bottle shared by ebone1988 to signal the true end of Dumpster Box No. 2. We managed to survive some hot garbage. The pour is a lighter black color with a thicker tan colored ring of head and no lace to be found. The aroma is... Well, curry and cumin. There isn't a damn thing else that you can detect other than the spices. Damnit. This should be pretty interesting. Well, there is a lot of spice happening here. The lime is a little detectable on the finish. The curry and cumin dominate. This tastes like the finish of my Pad Thai Curry dish when I eat Thai food. Good flavor, but horrible for a beer. Jesus. The mouth feel is thinner and light with a general lack of carbonation and a lingeringly spicy finish. There is a lack of anything useful and it's all spice. Damnit Eric.

Refrigerated brown bomber poured into a snifter. Aroma is turmeric, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is turmeric, lime, coconut, and cayenne. Indian food as a beer and quite flavorful.
