Interesting! Pitch black in colour, with the thinnest of heads. At first you get a sweet chocolatey taste, and then the spices hit you.

Appearance was clear reddish brown with diminishing off white tiny creamy head, spotty lacing. Aromas are strange mix of spices, sweetness, slight coconut, no alcohol. Taste are sweet chocolate malt, pepper, curry and alittle coffee, hints of warming alcohol. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with full body, then peppery lasting spicey finish. Alittle too much pepper and/or curry, still Interesting brew.

Very strange beer. Strong smell of spices. Strongest aroma is curry. First taste is a slight java taste then followed by a robust flavor of spices. Good beer but very interesting! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice and spicy but lacking body at the end for a stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle.Blind nose. Pours a dark black coffee pour with a java head. Nose, startling, chocolate mint, and spicey. After reading the description, could smell the curry and coconut. Taste layered with spices, strong curry, coconut with some lime. Finishes on the same tasting notes and long. An Indian diner in a bottle. A rather interesting complex concoction. Quaff Score 6 / 10

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 isn’t subtle and lighter touch was needed. Weird! You’ll 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. I’m hoping to find more of this to stock up.

Really unique beer. I would like to say this is a bad beer but I can’t bring myself to just because I don’t 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.
