11/29/12 notes: bottle, $6.99. Pour is brown black, semi-viscous with a small white head. Aroma of mint, chipotle, dark chocolate. Body is creamy, mild carbonation, sticky but not too long. The salient flavor is mint, asian herbs initially- perhaps because of how unusual this flavor profile is. This is rounded by more traditional mocha and kilned malts, with a hit of peppery spice (I could see curry here if told) near the finish. Pretty well-rounded and unique creation, more effective than Stone’s mint chocolate porter, of which I draw intuitive comparisons. Score is only hampered by my belief that herbs and dark ales just don’t make natural complements.

Thanks Billy for this bottle. Forgot to mention to him I don’t like spicy beer. Enjoyed at fridge temp in a snifter.

A - Brown to black int eh glass, 2 finger leather head that fades to a thin line.

S - Smells of chipotle, chili peppers and Indian food.

T - Taste is very spicy at the finish. Up front it’s like curry chicken and masala tea. The middle is roasted and nutty.

M - Heavy body, very foamy carbonation

O - This beer is very spicy. Luckily, the curry balances out the chili pepper pretty good. It’s still too spicy for my taste.

Location: 22 oz bottle from Oak Tree, 11/28/12, 7% ABV

Aroma: It has one of the more unique/interesting aromas of any beer I can remember. It smells a lot like curry, it is full of Indian spice, with some underlying roasted malts, and just a little coconut.
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a quickly dissipating, fizzy brown head and no lace
Flavor: The taste is pretty much what you’d expect from that nose, with lots of curry and Indian spices
Palate: The body is medium, it has a soft carbonation, with a bit of a tingle, and a dry, spicy finish
Overall Impression: This one is pretty interesting. Honestly, as far as gimmick beers go, I really liked it, but if your a fan of curry and a fan of beer, why wouldn’t you like this on? Scoring it is a little more difficult, because of the gimmick/non-beerness factor, but I went pretty high becuase it just worked for me. I might not pair this one with Indian food, because it might be a little much, but I’d definitely consider dipping some naan in it!

Bottle at craft ale house. Pours pitch black with no head to speak of. The aroma Is almost barrel aged but has cumin notes. The taste is spicy with a vanilla, coconut oak sweetness. Unique.

On tap at Alewife Queens. Pours murky cola brown with light tan head. Aromas of coconut and vanilla with some citrus. Flavors of coconut, vanilla, roast, some curry spice, and touch of citrus. This beer tastes like a pina colada with some spice. Truly interesting and tasty beer.

Bomber from Craft Ale House. Pours turbid chestnut toward black with 1-finger tan head that splotchily laces. Nose is spicy, figgy, with cinnamon, coconut, roasty malt. Tastes rich, very coconutty up front, with a heavy cayenne peppery flavor, roasty black patent malt, curry, cumin, cinnamon, and a complex palate. There are a lot of flavors floating around in this beer, and it all works very well. One of the more unique beers I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing.

Big time coffee, chocolate, ginger and a bit of other spice. Taste is similar, but has a big scratchy burn that is a bit tough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I've never had anything quite like this enticing brew. It's screams for meat mimosa! The color is a dark cola that slides down the glass after a sip. Creamy light carbonation with a small head. Toasty nose of coconut, spice, capsicum and oak. .. Such a long finish! The length of this beer is impressive. It starts with curried coconut and finishes a caramel, herbaceous chili. Fantastic! --- the sud slinger has spoken..
