lusikka (6264) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2013
650 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a white head. Aroma is very, very strong with pepper, cumin, lemon, coconut and curry. Flavour of roasted malts, strong spices such as pepper, cumin, curry, rice and bread. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a long, warming, quite spicy and burning finish. Probably the spiciest beer I’ve tasted in a while.

65 cl bottle @ olio, enjoy by 01/02/2013
Aroma is rather intensive with spices – feels exactly like an indian shop or restaurant. Curry chicken and nothing else. Flavour has curry chicken and finishes with slightly burning chili and cayenne. Quite unique, looks like a stout but no signs of roastiness whatsoever. A liquid version of Indian curry chicken. Really slow beer, probably would take a two-hour Bollywood movie to finish the whole bottle.

650ml bottle

BBE 01/02/13 - Pours pitch black with a small head. Smells like stepping into an Indian restaurant. Massive amounts of spices, curry, cayanne and cononut notes in the aroma. Taste is spicy, slightly roasty and warming with spicy notes, curry, pepper and rice. Finish is slick and spicy with warming pepper notes and curry. Quite complex and unique spice bomb.

Black pour with a slight orange hue and a thin beige head .... so much going on in the aroma cumin, lime, curry and a good dose of coconut are all there .... taste is a treat ....lime, coconut, spicy curry with the heat and bite of cayenne pepper cooled by the lime .... finish and back end are loaded with the peppery bite ... what a different brew ... flavors are intense and the bite lingers big time while hiding the abv very well

Ungstrup (29335) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2013
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, hops, and chocolate. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, chocolate, alcohol, chili, cocoa, and citrus fruits, leading to a dry and bitter finish. Smooth.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours an opaque black with a vague orangey hue and a creamy light brown head. Coconut aroma combined with spice resulting in an almost Bourbon-like character - very odd. Medium body, sweet overripe fruit, a very odd but distinct curry note and quite a chili bite. Ends sweet and massively spicy. Very odd but quite interesting and complex - you keep finding new layers in this one. 250113

Damn what an interesting beer or at least a novel beer. I have wanted to try this for a while and I so wanted to share this with the beer geeks back in KS but checked baggage costs are so high. Either way, pours like a regular stout and good god all mighty the nose hits you like an Indian rock. Damnnnnnn, someone get me a mango lassi to go along with this beer. Its strong and I like Indian food but I do not loooooveeee Indian food, so its a bit of a conundrum. Flavor is better, more subdued, get some stout and strong but not hella (as the kids say) strong curry. Heat, the heat between me and this beer. its not the pepper ale type heat, its a small but constant heat that comes in waves and burns the top of your intestines, I love it. Cool beer. Bottle is filter clean after the last pour. This one is with you in mind Eric.

Bomber from Sam’s, Durham. Right off the bat, let me say that I deeply regret not getting more than a single bottle of this. INSANE nose, you really get the subtle coconut and lime, along with dusty coriander, garam masala, and a nice healthy foreign stout character. Mouthfeel ever so slightly thin, but damn that’s some nice kick on the finish. Coconut milk for sure in the taste, giving it a nice robust core as the heat comes on and backs off in waves. Never merely burn, though, always complexly flavorful. Holy fuck this is good.

jgb9348 (4740) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Deep dark brown coloured body with a thinnish, fast-dying, one centimetre tall light brown head. Super potent aroma (even noticeable on the bottlecap) of curry, coconut, lemons, roasted malt, alcohol, cumin and way more curry - really nice smelling. Medium-bodied; Strong assertive roasted malt flavours with bunches of curry, cumin, coconut and nutty flavours tucked in to a nice sweet finish with the complexity going strong. The aftertaste does something very nice - mellows out almost completely and shows a very peppery and chile flavoured heat with some light sugars and lactic notes. Overall, a pretty complex beer and one that actually works quite well - definitely worth trying if you can find it! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 12-December-2012 for US$8.99 sampled at home in Washington on 15-January-2013.
