I think I was too scared to rate the original Sev brought back from her "working jolliday" nearly two years ago. Apparently theyíve a few spares.
The nose is one the most ridiculously "on the nose" noses of Ratebeer nosdom. The coconut is always there, but thereís brushes of the lime leaf and then sweaty spice. It literally makes me hungry. My stomach did a wee loop-de-loop. Initial taste is...sorry back to the nose, thereís some blackcurrant notes and odd choc after the first few numbing sips. Rich, mutilated maltiness and a big roast. The spiciness, light drying nutty cumin sifting through. Lean and gritty curry buzz - spicy tang through and through. Yeeeesh. Iíve no idea how they managed to marinade this down to the hungry, active warmth going on here. Iím losing the plot here. If you find a bottle of this, slay it down - for the experience alone.

Pours a jet black coloring with brown tints around the edges and no head whatsoever. Looks heavy and dense. Aromas of bittersweet bakerís chocolate enveloped in curry spices. Very interesting blending on the nose. Flavors are curry forward, with both spice and heat, followed by chocolate and coffee, both bitter and sweet, and then the beer transitions back into the spice and heat of curry. The aftertaste is bitter and warming, and the warmth lingers throughout the finish and for quite a while after, as well. The finish is slick and smooth. This is a very unique stout. worth a try especially if you like spicy food.

kajser27 (395) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 8, 2015
Black colored, small to medium tan head. Aroma is very strong curry and spicy cuisine, coconut. Taste some caramel, bit of roasted malts and chocolate, coconut but mostly just the curry and other spices, quite hot and spicy. Dry roasted finish, some heat. Medium to full bodied, moderate carbonation. Everlasting spiciness. If you want a curry beer this is your beer. Me, Iím waiting for a seafood paella flavored one ffs...

On tap at brewery. Smells like an indian restaurant. Black as night, little to no head. Great mouth feel with curry tingling on the edges of the tongue. Great kick at the end.

Bottle. Pours deep, dark brown. Aroma is a pretty amazing layering of all the flavors listed especially curry, coconut, and lime along with the chocolate and roasted malt notes. Flavor is equally representative of the ingredients and provided a rush of different flavors with soft sweetness and a great lingering spice character. Medium/full body.

beer-yum (876) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 3, 2015
Hint of Indian spices in a black pour. While Iím not usually a fan if the hot spice style this one is very tasty. Itís an excellent combination of the licorice flavours of the rich stout with the curry of the additions. Very tasty.

Draught at Antenna America. Much better than expected, I guess the coconut balances well with the rich curry spiciness, dark chocolate cereal flavors add up nicely, hints of lime, funky peppery finish. Quite enjoyed a glass but wouldnít drink loads of it.
