Pours thin black with a thin white head. Noe is a bit odd with walnut, allspice, and coffee. Assaults the mouth the notes of toffee, black licorice,. Bold cumin blast to finish it off. Wild tastes.

dark red brown, thick creamy beige head that drops. Nose is pencil shavings, leafy and dry with light pepper, some coconut. Huge coconut flavor across mid, light chocolate sweetness and dry heat in finish, thin and salty with low carb. Dry spice and roast combine, work on each other.

Split a 22oz bottle 3 ways. Poured a dark brown color with a medium-tan head. Aroma was Kaffir lime, coconut, curry, spices. This one was SO enjoyable I canít freaking believe it. Aroma was like walking into a Thai restaurant and ordering the green and red curry dishes at the same time. The aroma was a wonderful, pungent one that made me really hesitant for what was coming next - could the flavor be any good?
Well damn, the flavor wasnít quite as good as the aroma, but it was damn close - similar notes hit my tongue, startling me - this was great.

Bottle... This beer rocks!... Pours dark brown with a small, creamy, beige head. Good retention. This is one of the most interesting beers Iíve smelled to date - a huge kaffer lime leaf component interlaced nicely with a significant element of curry. Medium to full-bodied and lightly creamy with modest carbonation. The well-balanced flavor is pretty interesting as well - herbal, floral and crazy spicy. I canít believe this mishmash works, but it really does. Finishes very warming as the cayenne-infused liquid works its way down my throat. Big thanks to richiesd for shipping this world class experiment my way!

Tap @ Pizza Port Carlsbad. Black pour with slight tan foam on the edge of the glass. Aroma is lime, curry, soft chocolate, and roast. Taste is spicy curry, lime, chocolate, roasted malt, and a bit of heat lingering through the finish. Unique, complicated, and very enjoyable. I really like this beer.

Bomber. Poured deep brown with a couple fingers worth of beige head. The aroma picked up lime, coconut, and cumin upfront, with sweet, roasty chocolates, vanilla, and even more coconut beneath.. sweet overall.. very interesting stuff. The flavor found sweet chocolates, coconut, and other nutty notes throughout, with toasted coconut around the edges.. just a hit of fresh-squeezed lime around there too.. warm finish with burnt, yet sweet malts and a bunch more coconut.. curry powder and cayenne provided a slow, building burn through the long finish.. for the most part well-balanced, but a touch too coconut forward for my liking. Medium-bodied and increasingly spicy on the palate as it warmed up.. the sweet malts actually balanced well against the building heat.. Iíd definitely drink this again.

Bottle. Pitch black pour with a white head. Smells like Tai curry. Earthy roasted malts, nuts, and spices. Wild and wacky...

Bottle at Musa, Aberdeen. It pours opaque black, with a thin bubbly tan head. The nose is fresh coconut, chilli pepper, lots of spice (especially cumin), permanent marker pen and roasted malt. The taste is roasted malt, tar, chilli pepper, coconut, bitter chocolate, cumin, tar, lots of spice, citrus pith and caramel, with a big bitter finish and lingering chilli pepper warmth. Full body, moderate carbonation and surprisingly well balanced. Interesting stuff, but I couldnít drink a lot of it.
