22oz bottle. Drank during Pliny clone brew day @ Bob F.'s house. Pours black with a finger of creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, big cumin notes, cayenne pepper, and hints of coconut. Taste is earthy, with roasted malt, cocoa powder, cumin, and a spicy cayenne pepper burn in the finish.

This beer is black, thick, has no memorable head and is dominatee by licorice in both the aroma and flavor. Sooo much vanilla its almost like an, yes ’an’ horchata. Lots of hot pepper shit makes itself well known in the taste. It can smell like milk and you know the kaffir lime is lurking in there somewhere. A hot beer that’s as awesome as fire in the hole wings... a fun sport to eat,... painful to get rid of.

Tap at smoke eaters Mercado. Black, good lacing. Definite notes of curry, some sweetness from the coconut and chocolate. Similar flavor but with added roast and more prominent coconut flavors. Spicy from the cayenne. Quite a bit better than i was expecting. Weird but not really a gimmick beer.

Spiced to all hell. Cumin galore on the nose like I walked into an Indian spice store on the LES. Spices and lentils assault my palate, cayenne pepper overwhelms. Vanilla comes from left field to save the day the end but gets pummeled by the pepper. Meh.

Nice. Roasted coconut and the curry marry well. Couldn’t place a certain taste into I remembered what I was drinking. The curry is distinct. Only problem I have with these spicy beers is that they are palate killers for other beers. Excellent with food though.

Tmoney99 (11100) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Tap. Poured clear black color with an average frothy tan head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex toasted malt, hot spice and herb aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth dry texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted spice sweet flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a complex dark beer.

Pours black with a small fading tan head. Smells strongly of the mentioned Indian spices: curry, cayenne, and cumin. Taste is spicy, coconut, line, and cayenne. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Ballast Point Indra Kunindra finishes with a lingering cayenne heat.

omhper (19985) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2013
Bottled at SBWF. Near black, no head. Smells like walking into an Indian spice market, or like a fresh bowl of Hyderabadi Biryani. Sweet with medium-full body and clean mouthfeel. The curry flavour dominate completely, and the curry heat is much more prominent than in proper Indian food. Interesting idea, but out of balance. The clean, hard malt structure is also a drawback.

Bottle:   Yellow curry, spices, you know the way, it twists and turns, spinning yarns, you know they way it leaves you dry, it cuts you up, and takes you high.   You know the way, its painted gold, is it honey, is it cold?   You know the way, it throws about, it takes you in and spits you out.   This is a spicy meal, very unique and tasty.   Spicy on the tongue, lots of curry, coconut, caynne pepper, and lime leaf.   This is very much an Indian dish.   I am not sure if I am drinking a beer, or sipping the left overs of some Indian dish.   This one is very unique, spicy, rich, with a bit of heat.   Big spiciness, rich flavor profile, Indian all the way.   Probably one of the most unique beers I have had in a long ass time.   Spicy, some heat, curry, and just like a damn rich and clean Indian dish.   Friggen tasty!   Whats funny is that unlike most beers that make me thirsty, this one makes me very hungry.   Bring on the Thai food!!!
