The perfect blend of Indian style spices. The nose is exactly what youíd 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, thereís almost too much going on, but somehow it seems to work.

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 (761) - 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 (955) - 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 (6181) - 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 (1154) - 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.
