Pours black with a thick mocha head. Aroma of curry, coconut and vanilla. Taste is lime, curry, pepper and coconut. Nice heat that creeps in at the finish. Wow this is so complex. Smooth and fairly easy to drink however the heat intensifies as you drink

marcus (6850) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle from Capitol Beer, Sacramento. Pours black with a nice tan head and a treacle and pepper aroma. There is a dark molasses flavor with notes of coconut and lime with a warm peppery finish. Quite complex and tasty, but I’m not a fan of peppery brews.

jbruner (2557) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Pours an opaque black from the bottle with thin brown head and light lacing. Aroma of lime, spicy curry, and roasted grains. Taste is freaking weird, but awesome, an indian curry explosion in a beer form. Chili picks up and coconut comes out more as it warms. Weird, awesome, I want more.

Bottle. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Roasted malts, curry-like spices, a bit of lime, and some heat in the finish. Weird shit; I like it.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Pours thick and black with a small tan head. Nose is lime, Mexican candy, curry, nutmeg and pepper. Taste is sweet at first then bitter and pleasantly so. Mouthfeel is soft and sticky, body is heavy and finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

arondee (586) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Pours dark black with a medium tan head. Aroma is coconut, herbs, dark chocolate, and lime. The taste is coconut, chocolate, herbs, its really hard to explain what I’m tasting here. Then it hits the back of your throat and its spicy! Woah this is a kick ass beer.

Cheap curry powder & coriander on the nose - weird and not pleasant. Dark black pour, with a thick brown head that immediately dissappears without a trace. The curry flavors overwhelm the stout taste, rather than complementing it. Sweet with a slightly thin body. I was not able to finish this one, not a fan at all. The idea has potential, but I think the spice selection was poor, and overdone.

thome50 (1095) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle at a random bottle share. Pours a medium brown with light brown, khaki head. Aroma is of sunscreen and curry. Taste is all over the place in almost the best possible way. Curry, coconut, vanilla and then a low heat sneaks up on you. Some noted this was over powering but I loved this stuff. Best drinking stout I can imagine based on what I like. Would love to get this one again.

j12601 (7000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 10, 2012
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.
