Bottle (22 oz). Shared by Sam, thanks! Dark brown with a small beige head and little lacing. Aroma is a burst of cumin and not much else here. Taste is also agressively dominated by cumin, but thereís a subdued presence of coconut and lime in the finish. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Spicy finish. It might be fun on paper to make a beer with similar ingredients than Indian food, but this one doesnít pass the reality test (and I like Indian food). Gross and undrinkable.

Ballast Point Indra Kunindra is great but not for the faint if heart. Curry like aromas dominate from this dark pour with the tight tan head. Lots of Indian spice dominates the flavor with a spicy kick. Spicy flavors linger so be forewarned. Really good if you like that type of food. Indra Kunindra is definitely an original.

Tap at Young & Jacksonís. Probably one of the weirdest stouts I have ever had but i absolutely loved this. Smells exactly like a curry, all the right elements are there - coconut, lime, spice, coriander, meatiness, cumin. Crazy good. I drank a pint of this, so that means it must be tasty

Reviewed from notes: at a large share, first time having this beer. Pours a dark oil like black with tan head. Notes of coconut, oyster, and curry on the nose; coconut and cumin on the palate, with some sweetness. Finishes with a little heat, weird, but not bad.

Dark brown pour big dark tan head. Aroma of berries/lime, tumeric, black pepper, wood. Tastes woody, licorice, coconut. Flavors are a bit muted compared to the aroma. Watery palate with some sediment. Started strong, but doesnít come through.

Beer tasting at Gravity. Nice aroma of curry and spice. Lots of curry flavors. Descent burn in the back of the throat from the cayenne. Great stout! Very unique.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2014 had it on tap at Ballast Point on India St. last Saturday. A complex brew. The smell can be off putting to some, but I found it pleasant. Fresh pencil shavings. The curry is distinct, cummin present and cayenne gives a slight burn. It may not the best for the Firestone 805 crowd. But a sophisticated beer drinker can appreciate. Ballast showed creativity with the fusion, while still making a very good beer.

Ale Alpharetta. Well if this wasnít a different brew. First sip - eh. Second sip - well this is interesting. Third sip - wow there is some burn here. This beer showed curry in a glass. Cumin, pepper, lingering spicy, a touch sweet, malty, cocoa, curry. The spice builds and sticks right in the back of the throat . Not overwhelming, but certainly a building heat. Flavors go well together and this is a beer that cooking with would be fun.

22 oz bottle shared by Debbie at Ale Alpharetta. Pours black, with a filmy tan head. The aroma is vanilla, curry spices, chocolate, cayenne pepper, and just a touch of citrus. The flavor is sweet up front, with a growing, fairly intense spicy warmth. The burn sticks around for quite a while, but didnít completely ruin my palate. Heavy body, a little oily, with a clean finish. Overall, this is a wonderfully complex, spicy, and flavorful beer. Iíve had my fair share of spicy stouts, but this one stands out.

22 ounce bottle. Served in a Great Lakes Brewing goblet, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch tan head that fizzled away pretty quickly. There isnít much lacing at all. The brew smells mostly like cumin, curry, and cayenne, along with a bit of coconut. The spices overpower pretty much everything else thatís in the aroma. The spices are strong in the flavor of this beer too, but I can also taste some lime, chocolate, and vanilla. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís coating and smooth with a low/moderate amount of carbonation. I liked this brew, too bad I only bought one bomber because if I had another one Iíd probably drink it now! Recommended if you like spicier food/beer. $9.35 a bomber.
