Strangest beer I've tasted to date. If you were blindfolded and someone put this up to your nose you would probably say this was a Thai curry dish. Smells of cumin and coconut predominate. The beer itself is a black hole-not letting light pass through, and the few bubbles that escape it are short-lived and leave no trace. Taste is rich in cumin and resembles coconut milk with a cayenne pepper kick that would offend those who don't like spicy dishes. Lighter that expected, but as the overall feeling of this beer is of a curry dinner, it fills you up. I'm liking it more as I near the bottom, so hang in there if you're thinking you can't make it through this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer is the color you see when your eyes are closed...darkness with a tint of lifeblood. I imagine the concept of this brew began behind closed eyes, too, with a bewitching and singular dream...The aroma reads like a recipe...first some coconut followed by toasted cumin, curry powder, and cayenne. And the taste is pure Indian cuisine...a wash of curried spice and lime with alcohol as an unexpected vehicle. It is truly a surprising flavor for a beer. The cayenne remains as a slow burn on your lips. I'm a bit thrown by this one...very unique, but I like it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Near black pour with a khaki head that fades down to a ring. Strong aroma with curry, coconut, lime, and chocolate. Taste has all of the same with pepper heat you can feel in the back of your throat. Slick body. This beer is probably not for everyone, but I really enjoy it.

22oz bottle. Poured a black color with a smaller sized off white head. Yep, you can smell and taste the exotic ingredients ... curry, coconut and spicy. Light to medium pepper burn in the finish. Just not up my alley.

Sample at Yard House Seattle. This brew pours brownish-black with a medium thin light beige head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. Curry, cinnamon and malt in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of sweet/spicy curry, toasted coconut and citrus. The finish is spicy with a dark chocolate and curry aftertaste. Above average overall.

dark brown, small brown head with poor retention and no lacing. coconut, roast, lots of cumin, some anise and ginger, little astringent lime, finishes with a hot of cayenne. medium sweet, medium-light spicy, little bitter. medium body, creamy feel. slightly soapy-feeling finish. hard to drink a lot of, but really neat.

Bomber. Octopus ink colored with a cap of light brown foam. Aroma is all curry with some lime and coconut on the side. Taste is curry, dark chocolate and toasted coconut upfront followed by cinnamon, cumin and cayenne pepper. Moderately creamy body with medium carbonation and a hot, spicy finish. Overall, a liquid curry dinner spice bomb best enjoyed in small doses.

Opaque black - brown beer, good pale tan head. Palate is light and airy, semi dry. I thought this would be a heavily spiced clunky stout, I could not have been more wrong! Pleasant sweetish spice, perfume floral with violets, rose and those dipping trays you get whilst waiting to pick up your take away at the Indian Restaurant. Light lime and coconut and a trace of chocolate. Cayenne pepper starts in the mid and builds to the finish, but it’s never too hot. Semi dry finish. Wonderfuly judged spices, this hangs together superbly well. If I have had a better spiced beer I don’t recall it.

Bottle picked up in Charlotte. Pours a black color with tan head. Curry, spicy pepper along with roasty malt aromas. Curry, coconut, spicy flavors. Really cool flavor profile, and fun to try, but not a beer I could drink a lot of.

(090813) On draft from Yard House, Chino Hills. A one of a kind beer. It makes you feel like you've travelled Far East, but really you actually haven't gone anywhere at all. Pours a deep black with a nice thin chocolate brown head. You can definitely smell the spices and curry coming through. It has the body of a chocolate stout but ends with the bite from the cumin and the cayenne and curry. Very complex and worth a try. I've never had a beer like it!
