BucannonXC5 (1060) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Type: 22-oz. bottle Glass: Firestone restaurant pint glass From: Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, Calif. Price: $7.99 Misc.: N/A Poured a pitch black color with just over one finger of tan head that dissipated almost right away. Lots of random spots on the sides of the glass, well below average retention on the top. Smelled unlike anything I’ve had before. Got crayons, yes, crayons first. Coconut followed, along with butter and curry. All I can say about the taste is, “wow!” Like the smell, unlike anything I’ve had before. Got the coconut and crayon taste first, then got ripped with curry and a boat load of spices, including a lingering hot one at the end. I don’t know Indian food (besides curry), but there had to be tons of Indian notes. Spicy, spicy. Full-to-medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, spicy finish. This was my first foreign export style beer. Although I don’t like Indian food (to me that was what this beer was all about), this was a very interesting beer and something nice to try.

bottle, from Triangle Wine. Great aromo, sweet, spicy. Dark orangy brown color, small head, faded quick, no lace. sweet spiced flavor. Medium body, smooth creamy mouthfeel, spiced finish. Darn good beer, aroma has so much going on, the curry, coconut, lime, cocoa. flavor is equally tasty. real unique beer, winner

Bomber. Thanks to mike12da. Coconut, airplane glue, sweet curry nose. Big ass cayenne pepper kick right away; mid palate gets even hotter. All the ingredient flavors are apparent at different moments (curry, cayenne, cumin, lime) and blend in interesting ways with the chocolate base. The cayenne, however, stays in the forefront all throughout. Fun, novel stuff.

DiarmaidBHK (3688) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle from Brusin’ Ales. Pours black with a half inch of khaki foam. Big coconut and lime notes on the nose. The coconut and lime notes complement the malty notes on the tongue. Finishes with heat and flavor of the cayenne. The heat builds up if you drink it too quickly. It’s like an Indian restaurant in a beer. Fantastic!

magsinva (956) - Virginia, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales - pours cola with a khaki head. Aroma is big coconut curry with lime, cayenne, and hops. Taste is sweet and aggressively spiced. The heat of the cayenne creeps up on you as you drink the beer so I’d have a glass of water handy if you aren’t used to that. Overall, if you love you’re Indian food (which I do), you’ll love this beer.

beerguy101 (5338) - Newark, California, USA - DEC 23, 2012
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. It’s very one dimensional. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly hot.

dwyerpg (4827) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 18, 2012
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 didn’t enjoy.

20121215 750ml from Canal’s 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, it’s 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

La noix de coco, le cumin et le cayenne s’unissent au chocolat pour me gifler de saveurs!! Plus elle se réchauffe, plus le curry et le cumin performent. Ça fonctionne.
