Bottle picked up in Charlotte. Pours a black color with tan head. Curry, spicy pepper along with roasty malt aromas. Curry, coconut, spicy flavors. Really cool flavor profile, and fun to try, but not a beer I could drink a lot of.

(090813) On draft from Yard House, Chino Hills. A one of a kind beer. It makes you feel like you've travelled Far East, but really you actually haven't gone anywhere at all. Pours a deep black with a nice thin chocolate brown head. You can definitely smell the spices and curry coming through. It has the body of a chocolate stout but ends with the bite from the cumin and the cayenne and curry. Very complex and worth a try. I've never had a beer like it!

Wow! Draft from the Yardhouse @ Red Rock, Las Vegas. Pours a deep dark brown with a decent lingering head. Aroma is pleasant and intriguing: bread, hay, herbs, you can smell the curry and coconut. Flavor is decently balanced and very interesting. Cayenne, curry, coconut, and lime all come through. I’ve never had a beer like it. Really, enjoyed and will definitely buy again.

Pours near black with tan head and no lacing. Aroma makes me feel like I’m in an Indian restaurant...tons of curry, cumin, and hot peppers. Taste is amazingly complex. Body of a stout, but taste changes from dark, chocolaty malts to cumin to warming peppers, curry, and tons of coconut. Then to heat. My lips are on fire. Wow, great unique beer!

22 oz. bottle - Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head that faded quickly. No lacing. Aroma is herbs and spices. None like I’ve smelled before. The flavor is peppers, roasted malt, and light coconut. A little heat lingers in the finish. Medium body. A good beer.

22. This beer shouldn’t work...but it kinda seems like it does work. So tough to be sure. Pours black with a dense and creamy dark tan head that hangs around. Big lively nose of clear turmeric and cumin, also definitely some cayenne. This smells delicious. This smells nothing like beer. There’s also some roasty dark chocolate hanging around under this. These shouldn’t work together. They seem to work together. There’s an extraordinary amount of cognitive dissonance involved in enjoying this beer. As it warms, the lime note becomes more pronounced. This is just nuts. This is like a great mystery movie that gets better and better the more you realize you have no idea what’s going on. Creamy medium body with soft carb. You just go ahead and try to imagine what a roasty, chocolatey stout with lime, hot peppery cayenne, earthy cumin, sharp turmeric, and whatever else all together tastes like. This beer defies the validity of any beer rating--of any beer writing. It’s certainly better enjoyed than discussed. After ratings thousands of beers, I’m going to play a card I don’t think I’ve played: Just try this beer. There’s no point explaining or describing it, and you’re probably curious. And as to the finish, it’s notably complex, with malty sweetness, some fruity notes, some spicy elemen...oh, never mind.

Tap @ brewery. Pours black with a creamy brown lacing head. Lots of coconuts ashy sweet spicy. Flavor similar, good spicy hot bite. Nice as a taster but would prbably not want to down a whole pint of this

Lime and curry aroma; black appearance with small head; lime and chocolate taste that gives way to strong curry; quick fizz on the palate with a spicy warm finish; overall, a very unique beer that is all about the curry and does a great job showcasing it

Interesting! Pitch black in colour, with the thinnest of heads. At first you get a sweet chocolatey taste, and then the spices hit you.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance was clear reddish brown with diminishing off white tiny creamy head, spotty lacing. Aromas are strange mix of spices, sweetness, slight coconut, no alcohol. Taste are sweet chocolate malt, pepper, curry and alittle coffee, hints of warming alcohol. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with full body, then peppery lasting spicey finish. Alittle too much pepper and/or curry, still Interesting brew.
