beerbastard (726) - 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. Doesnít 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 isnít lower is that Iím pretty sure the normally reliable Ballast point wonít give me a headache.

HighWine (954) - 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. Iím craving Thai food now. Curry yumminess. Surprisingly good albeit gimmicky.

AmEricanbrew (6004) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Black color with tan head. Nice chocolate, woody, vanilla bean, Indian spice, smoked pepper aromas. medium body with a smooth mouthfeel. Belgian chocolate flavors with vanilla, dry wood, chili sauce, with a medium hot spice burn to finish---good.

DocJitsu (1045) - Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Pours a nearly black and opaque with a dark khaki head. Banana, cocoa, coconut, and some unfamiliar spice on the nose. Mouthfeel is thick, chewy, and smooth. Coconut, cardamom, ginger, and clove. My goodness, this is so magnificent and unique. I took one of these home.

This gets points for being unlike anything Iíve had but I donít think this worked overall. The curry is what stays with you throughout. It had BO smell with some other spices and roasted malts. Black in color with a brown fizzy head. This had a dry palate to me. Tastes of curry and sawdust. Other than the roasted malts and cayenne I couldnít identify any other flavors. Maybe some hops. Worth a one-time try.

BeerandBlues2 (10062) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with a medium-small, fizzy light tan head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is coconut, cumin, cayenne, lime, coriander, roast and dark chocolate malt, cinnamon, and dates. Flavor is malt and spice balanced with light tropical fermentation fruity esters (pineapple), no hops or bitterness, and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation. Wow, there is a lot going on in this beer.

ddemmingjr (720) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Pours motor oil brown, chocolate brown head that recedes to a dense ring. Nose is potent, roasted coconut, curry, cumin, cinnamon and cayenne pepper. Med to heavier bodied. Notes of chocolate malts, cinnamon, coconut and curry and finishes with cayenne heat on the finish. Interesting spice beer though it might have a bit too much going on. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

J_man (734) - Tustin, California, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Wow, this is a really unusual beer. The cumin and curry jump out in the aroma along with some chocolate. The cayenne pepper heat hits immediately and lasts for a long time along with the spices. The coconut finally comes out to complete the curry flavor. All of these stand out clearly on their own but they blend together in an interesting and tasty way. If there are hops in here, theyíre covered by all the other flavors. The body is dark brown with a ruby color under light and a light tan head that disappears quickly. Finishes with hot spice and chocolate. The heat may be a bit much, but it probably goes great with spicy foods. This is definitely not for everyone, but itís a well made, unique beer.

Tastes and smells like a nice curry. Nice cayenne finish that stays on the palette. Definitely a sipping beer.
