2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled on 11/3/2012. This spiced stout pours an eclipse black color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium head. The aroma is chocolate, curry, some lime and pepper. A medium bodied spice ale. The malts are chocolate, pepper, cumin, lime and some more pepper. The hops are herbal nd spicy. Lot and lots of cayenne pepper, with sort of overwhelms the lime, cumin and coconut. Kinda spicy and somewhat hot. Would have like this a whole lot more with a whole lot less cayenne pepper, it sort of overwhelms everything else and not in a good way. Itís very one dimensional. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly hot.

Tons of cumin in the aroma and the body. The spices as a whole where overwhelming at first and overly sweet at the end. Overall, a beer I really didnít enjoy.

20121215 750ml from Canalís in Marlton, NJ. This one inspired me to log in for a rare online rate. Darkest cola brown with fleeting beige head then sort of flat and dull looking. Macaroon aroma with mild peat and light milk chocolate. Body is soft, creamy, coating, sticky. Flavor is spot on for the description: a nice coconut curry with slight hints of lime and a mild peppery burn. Love this beer, and at seven percent I could drink a mess of it. Wait, itís curry flavored so it should be a nice hangover cure, too, right? Excellent stuff.

Dark pour from Valhalla. Light small head. Cocunuts and curry smell and dominate the taste with the cayenne coming on. Fascinating beer but probably best in small doses

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with a quickly dissipating tan head. Aromas of curry, cumin, a little chocolate. Taste is strong curry, cayenne, and cumin. Decent malty backbone thatís rich and slightly sweet. Finish is sweet with a lingering spicy warmth. Seems a little overly aggressive in spice but overall a very enjoyable experience.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a small soda-like light brown head. The aroma is by far the strangest Iíve ever experienced with any beer. The lime is what stands out most, with coconut, curry, and a light background of roasted malt. Taste is equally bizarre, starts off rather stout-like, but quickly changes, more lime and coconut, and stronger curry flavors, lots of coriander and cumin, taste is relatively sweet overall. Finish is very spicy, almost enough to make me sweat, but that seems almost necessary. Light to medium body, soft carbonation. This is by far the strangest beer Iíve ever had. That being said itís pretty good.

Bottle. Pours black with thick tan head that quickly recedes to nothing. Nose is pretty crazy - big coconut aroma, some lime. Smells like a tropical drink or suntan lotion. Flavor is coconut, a more pronounced lime flavor, some curry, a decent amount of heat. Thick mouthfeel. Really unique.
