Really unique beer. I would like to say this is a bad beer but I canít bring myself to just because I donít like the taste. Taste is very herby, spicy with sting hints of burnt caramel.

Black pour with a brown head. The mixture of curry, cumin, and a touch of pepper hit my nose first thing. The taste is herbal. The heat hit the back of my tongue. Little citrusy in the mix. Cumin is dominate. Coconut is there also but way in the back. Heat is not overbearing- a pleasant sensation. The head disappeared as I continued my drink. The flavor of curry, cumin and pepper dominated from start to finish.

Bomber. Pours black with a tan head that doesnít stick around too long. One of the most unique brews Iíve tasted yet and the only one with coconut that actually pulls it off. The mix of coconut and curry and pepper really works well. As it warms a whole slew of other flavors appear, most notably the chocolate notes. This is good.

Black with modest, fizzy, brown head, light legs / Interesting, rich nose of curry, cream, chocolate, coconut, cumin, lime / Medium body, a hint thin, smooth, creamy, some sweetness, good balance with light bitterness with a big cayenne kick on the finish / Rich flavors of semi sweet chocolate, coconut, curry, cream, lime, cumin, hot pepper / A great idea, with a cool flavor profile, somewhat clumsily excecuted. Still, all in all, a very worthwhile beer.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2013 Strange. Reminds me of indian peanut curry. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is walking into an indian restaurant. Taste is peanut curry with a bitter and spicy hot finish. Very odd but enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours black with a very thin tan head. Aroma of cumin, roasted malt, roasted pepper, sweet lime, chocolate. It smells like a spice cabinet. Flavor of lots of spices and some heat up front - cumin, cayenne pepper, curry - followed by roasted malt, chocolate notes, and licorice. The coconut is probably least prominent. The spices are definitely powerful but the underlying malt notes are still present. Overall a great and very complex beer and great for those who love their spicy stouts.

Taste like Indian food. Curry is the overwhelming presence. Has some heat from the pepper. Not a bad beer. Just not a sunny day at the beach beer. Be careful with your pairing.

Pours an oily black into the glass, with a diminishing tan ring of suds that leaves spotty lacing. The nose is sweet, containing the "4 Cís": Chocolate, Curry, Cumin and Coconut. Flavors are roasted upfront, with a nice chocolate-coconut essence mingling with cumin to provide a sweeter mid-palate, then finishing with the spicy kick of cayenne and curry, as well as hints of black pepper. This really hits all points on the flavor spectrum, a robust offering indeed. One of the most complex brews Iíve ever had. Full-bodied, and I absolutely LOVE the spicy heat provided in the back of the esophagus... just gorgeous on the palate. Silky smooth, active, warming, spicy, roasted, semi-sweet and ultimately complex. Delicious!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours black with a chalky brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a decent amount of spice with the curry and pepper coming through supported by roasted malts and dark grains. Flavor has a good amount of cumin and curry that slightly over power the dark grains and roasted malts.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wow - one of the most unique brews I have ever tasted! The beer poured dark and unclear on tap with a big creamy head. The aroma was sweet and delicious, unique candy like sweetness from the lime leaf and maybe the curry somehow?! The flavor starts off like a roasted stout or brown ale, nice, but then immediately the curry and pepper hits the palate with the coconut and kumin in the background. The kaffir limes help balance the whole thing out as was done in the aroma. I really learned to like this beer with its complexity as the glass went down. The aroma was thoroughly enjoyed for sure.
