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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This gets points for being unlike anything I’ve had but I don’t 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 couldn’t identify any other flavors. Maybe some hops. Worth a one-time try.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours black with a medium-small, fizzy light tan head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is coconut, cumin, cayenne, lime, coriander, roast and dark chocolate malt, cinnamon, and dates. Flavor is malt and spice balanced with light tropical fermentation fruity esters (pineapple), no hops or bitterness, and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation. Wow, there is a lot going on in this beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours motor oil brown, chocolate brown head that recedes to a dense ring. Nose is potent, roasted coconut, curry, cumin, cinnamon and cayenne pepper. Med to heavier bodied. Notes of chocolate malts, cinnamon, coconut and curry and finishes with cayenne heat on the finish. Interesting spice beer though it might have a bit too much going on.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wow, this is a really unusual beer. The cumin and curry jump out in the aroma along with some chocolate. The cayenne pepper heat hits immediately and lasts for a long time along with the spices. The coconut finally comes out to complete the curry flavor. All of these stand out clearly on their own but they blend together in an interesting and tasty way. If there are hops in here, they’re covered by all the other flavors. The body is dark brown with a ruby color under light and a light tan head that disappears quickly. Finishes with hot spice and chocolate. The heat may be a bit much, but it probably goes great with spicy foods. This is definitely not for everyone, but it’s a well made, unique beer.

Tastes and smells like a nice curry. Nice cayenne finish that stays on the palette. Definitely a sipping beer.

Bottle. Wonderful coconut and a little sweet bourbon characteristics in the aroma. It’s very dark brown in color. The taste is similar to a dark lager but is the spice aspects come through strong. On the palate it is light, short and smooth although the spice lingers a little. This is a great beer, the unique spice and aroma experience is well balanced.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Nose of cumin, curry, dirty sweat. This thing smells foul. Tastes only a bit better: lots of curry and spice, coconut, chocolate, coffee, and a burning peppery finish that lasts a long time. A well made monstrosity. Well-constructed, I suppose, but one of the most disgusting things I have ever tasted.

Really an interesting combo. I really get a nice soft burn from the cayenne in the aftertaste and lingering on my throat. Still looking for the other flavors added but this is good. Worth going back to try again.
