Wow...just wow. I have never tried such a unique beer (and probably never will!). Sweet madras curry, candied banana, honey and coconut as well as some unidentifiable (to me) spice or leaf. In the mouth itís medium bodied with curry, coconut and lovely hot pepper sting on the tail. Much better than it sounds. My only problem with this is that it was slightly tough going through a whole pint as summer starts to hit here in Japan. Having said that, it was a pleasant stray from well worn paths and an unexpected delight.

Bottle. Bizarre and interesting. Chocolate and curry and coconut milk? Real strange upfront. Kaffir lime, curry with cayenne. Reaaly weird but interesting. A few sips and itís gets to be too much

A+ effort and I applaud them for the risk taking. I just think this was poorly conceived. Interesting aroma that was good, beautiful palate and beautiful appearance. However, the taste of this beer was just confused and the flavors should never be in beer in my opinion. It was undrinkable.

On tap at Ballast Point. Truly unique in every way. Deep dark obsidian pour with ruby highlights and a medium but creamy and long lasting brown head. Thin curtains of velvety lacing. Pungent but pleasing aroma of lime, mild coconut, melted bittersweet chocolate and toasted herbs. The curry hits you first then draws you into a complex, mind-bending vortex of favors. Tart lime, roasted malt, chocolate, coconut, sour apple and other herbal, botanical notes. A few sips in you start to get the chili pepper burn and lingers throughout but doesnít interfere with the flavors. That said, If youíre not a fan of hot dishes (or spicy brews) then youíd probably have a harder time getting past the chilies in this one. Despite the burn the texture is quite silky and the finish is long, flavorful and packs a big final kick of lime and curry. Might be the most interesting brew Iíve ever had and Iím thrilled I had a chance to try it before it kicked.

big roasted coffee flavor and a hot peppery finish that follows you right to your stomach. bit of funkiness and bitterness mixed in. Wow this is different. oh yeah there is some nice dark chocolate mixed in there.

Bottle. Pours a deep dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, cumin, and lime. Taste is spicy and roasty, of toasted malt, wood, cumin, lime and ending with a bit of coconut and cayenne. Lingering hint of spiciness with roasted malt and coconut. Very weird beer, but the taste works.

StefanSD (2134) - Lakeside, California, USA - APR 4, 2012
Pint glass at Toronado. Dark brown pour with a small beige head that had poor retention. The aroma is quite pungent with toffee, cloves and coconut--smells like an incense stick. The taste was similar to the nose, lots of cloves with other complex curry spices swirling about, can definitely pick out some cayenne. The malt bast is full and silky smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and disturbing. I really didnít care for this, its a bit to Frankenstein-like, I felt I was drinking liquefied incense. I do applaud the bold experimentation, but this is just not for me.

Tap. Dark brown pour. Aroma is a ton of coconut. Taste is coconut and curry. Aftertaste is spicy cayenne pepper. This beer would make a good marinade.

viscous black, with strong aroma of pepper and curry. And almost a chocolatey chili aroma character as well. Super interesting flavor, some chocolate with chilis and pepper. And some tones of the curry as well. Almost a finishing spicyness.

I just walked into a Thai Food restaurant. Unmistakable curry aroma. The flavor is surprising and I was happy to find it was a nicely balanced beer. Fun to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
