Bottle at James’ place for a tasting. Pours a deep black with a thin tan head. The nose here is amazing, full of coconut, and a ton of curry spices. Cumin, coconut, a bit of pepper, a touch of citrus and lime. Smells like chocolate spiced macaroons. Medium bodied, spicy at first, but not hot. Flavors are layerd beautifully, spices and coconut, cumin and lime, pepper and roast. Roast lingers into the finish, cocoa, more coconut, lime, cumin, pepper. Beatiful, remarkably balanced and subtle for such a complex beer.

Spicy, coconuty, but not that great. Being Indian should have given me some predisposition to like this beer better than I did....but that wasn’t the case.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown and thick with very little head. Nose has a lot of roasted flavors with some of the spices coming through. The coconut really comes through in the taste, which is a flavor I’m not a fan of. Really interesting stout.

Bomber pours black with a tan head. Aromas of cyanne curry some cumin grassy hops chocolate nib and some cocoa and coffee. Flavor is very layered bitter and spicy lots of cyanne up front. Body is full and finish leaves spicy pepper behind

22 ounce bottle. Opague black liquid. Small tan head disappates quickly. Aroma of coconut, green tea, curry, chocolate and latex paint. Wow, lot’s going on here. Lot’s of curry flavor which dominates the palate along with the cayenne pepper. Some roasted malt character, but it gets lost with all the other components. Some lime and espresso in finish, but the cayenne stays for the whole ride. very different and interesting.

tap at alewife baltimore. spicy curry comes across as ancho chili peppers, coconut is clean and potent. pleasant milk chocolate backing. a bit too spicy for large doses. interesting in smaller quantities.

Tap at Ballast Point. The beer pours to a dark body. Smells and tastes of chocolate curry and coconut. Like a rich Indian fudge. Medium full body, but clean. An astonishing surprise!

On draft at The Pony Bar. A really interesting brew that tastes like an Indian snack - the most Indian tasting brew I have ever hard. Lots of hot pepper, cumin, nuts, and coriander, plus a dash of coconut.

Aroma- funk, slight cucumbers, metallic hints, herbs, stewed tomatoes Appearance- mostly black with an off-white head Taste- spices and roasted notes dominate the fruit, followed by some heat and then a brash amount of heat/spice, semi-sweet finish Palate- solid body and mouthfeel Overall- WTF did I just drink? The nose on it is not very good to say the least but the flavors are very complex and unique. Not something I could enjoy more than a small pour of but interesting nevertheless.
