Pours black with a brown head and bizarre beer aroma of Indian spices. Taste is unique as well, all Indian spices, lots of curry, coconut, cumin, and spicy pepper with a spicy long finish. Different, unique brew with interesting ingredients, complex

Dark mahogany pour with a small caramel head. Brownie batter, curry, coconut, light citrus, and spicy cayenne in the nose. It smells wonderful and tastes terrible. Nothing about this melds or comes together. The capsaicin is distracting, the curry and cococut are overpowering, and the lime adds an odd twang. Love all of the flavors individually but this thing isnít subtle and lighter touch was needed. Weird! Youíll either love it or hate it...polarizing would be the best descriptor.

On tap at the Public House. It pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is awesome with notes of cinnamon, vanilla, cocoa and chiles all in good balance. The flavor has a lot of spicy heat with an herbal quality, dark chocolate, vanilla, turmeric and cumin. WOW! Perfect body and carbonation. Really fun and interesting beer. Iím hoping to find more of this to stock up.

Really unique beer. I would like to say this is a bad beer but I canít bring myself to just because I donít like the taste. Taste is very herby, spicy with sting hints of burnt caramel.

Black pour with a brown head. The mixture of curry, cumin, and a touch of pepper hit my nose first thing. The taste is herbal. The heat hit the back of my tongue. Little citrusy in the mix. Cumin is dominate. Coconut is there also but way in the back. Heat is not overbearing- a pleasant sensation. The head disappeared as I continued my drink. The flavor of curry, cumin and pepper dominated from start to finish.

Bomber. Pours black with a tan head that doesnít stick around too long. One of the most unique brews Iíve tasted yet and the only one with coconut that actually pulls it off. The mix of coconut and curry and pepper really works well. As it warms a whole slew of other flavors appear, most notably the chocolate notes. This is good.

Black with modest, fizzy, brown head, light legs / Interesting, rich nose of curry, cream, chocolate, coconut, cumin, lime / Medium body, a hint thin, smooth, creamy, some sweetness, good balance with light bitterness with a big cayenne kick on the finish / Rich flavors of semi sweet chocolate, coconut, curry, cream, lime, cumin, hot pepper / A great idea, with a cool flavor profile, somewhat clumsily excecuted. Still, all in all, a very worthwhile beer.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2013 Strange. Reminds me of indian peanut curry. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is walking into an indian restaurant. Taste is peanut curry with a bitter and spicy hot finish. Very odd but enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours black with a very thin tan head. Aroma of cumin, roasted malt, roasted pepper, sweet lime, chocolate. It smells like a spice cabinet. Flavor of lots of spices and some heat up front - cumin, cayenne pepper, curry - followed by roasted malt, chocolate notes, and licorice. The coconut is probably least prominent. The spices are definitely powerful but the underlying malt notes are still present. Overall a great and very complex beer and great for those who love their spicy stouts. 8/4/8/4/15 [3.9/5]

Taste like Indian food. Curry is the overwhelming presence. Has some heat from the pepper. Not a bad beer. Just not a sunny day at the beach beer. Be careful with your pairing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
