Draft at the beer authority NYC. Don't know why the waitress warned me. This is flavorful and sweet with coconut and cinnamon. Great ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Crazy beer with a lot going on. Nice aroma of lime, licorice, pepper, coconut. The appearance is jt black, thin cream colored head. The flavor is very hot pepper, coconut, lime. Sweet, but one hell of a spicy pepper bite. The finish is 100% burning pepper, like eating Indian food. Medium/thick in body, creamy mouthfeel. Interesting beer. A bit too much cayenne to be fully enjoyable.

Leighton (10772) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s 30th Birthday Bash - CBC Clerkenwell, London. I brought this beer along - I contributed something! Pours dark brown with a moderate, tan foam head. Nose of perfume and cumin. Medium sweet flavor, more perfume notes, some capsicum, chili and lime, along with a bit of cocoa. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Some heat in there. Spicy finish, with coriander, chili, lime. It’s an odd beer on paper but overall it works quite well.

BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2013
The perfect blend of Indian style spices. The nose is exactly what you’d expect from walking into the finest Indian restaurant. Looks dark, black, minimal head. Taste is pure spice. Intense. Coconut milk, cumin, lime, curry, and a hint of cayenne. Mouth feel is heavy, thick, and smooth. Not the most refreshing beer, but certainly a drinking experience - especially if you like Indian food.

Very spicy. Not recommended with food of any kind. One of the most unique beers I've ever had. Great beer but the spice is too overpowering for me to enjoy on a regular basis. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: lots of spices, curry and pepper dominate, with notes of cumin coming through as well. Roast malts and some coffee emerge from behind the spices as well, also some caramel and sweet dark sugar notes. Appearance: pours black with a tan head, retention is average. Taste: the spices and heat really take center stage for me - lots of curry and cumin. Layers of chocolate and malt sweetness help bring some balance to the beer, though this is definitely skewed towards the non-traditional ingredients. Though the spices are heavy-hitting, I still found myself rather enjoying this beer. Finish is peppery heat and a bit of chocolate, alcohol is well hidden. Palate: medium-full body, medium carbonation. Overall: really interesting, there’s almost too much going on, but somehow it seems to work.

aplus01 (71) - North Carolina, USA - APR 20, 2013
Aroma is coconut, cumin, and lime. Taste is more coconut and cayenne pepper with a hint of lime in the finish. More effervescent and thin than anticipated. An odd conglomeration of flavors but it delivers on the advertised indian flavor. Worth a taste.

beerbastard (681) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 13, 2013
Pours Black from a 22oz bottle, with no lasting head. Cumin nose with many unknown aromas. The cumin flavors jump out with lots of other tastes. The pepper burn and many more more senstions last into the finish. Overall this is too, much. Doesn’t work for me.

This tastes like some curry sauce I would have made before I knew how to cook (too much cumin, man!) or if one used a glass of ok black lager to rinse off salty indian snack treats. If your girlfriend likes her Chandonnay filtered through oak sawdust, you might love this bizarre concoction, though. The only reason that this rating isn’t lower is that I’m pretty sure the normally reliable Ballast point won’t give me a headache.

HighWine (951) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2013
Tap flight at the brewery. Still black pour. Light beige ring for a head. Aroma is shocking: yellow and green curry, cola, and fresh green herbs. Taste is curry root beer with some heat on the end. Holy crap...it works...in a weird way. I’m craving Thai food now. Curry yumminess. Surprisingly good albeit gimmicky.
