Pours a clear dark chestnut with minimal tan head and lacing. Aroma of cumin, toasted coconut and cayenne. Taste has an almost briny character with the cumin and cayenne coming in mid taste. You get a leafy lime flavor from the kafir towards the end along with some spiciness. Finished dry. Light/medium body with moderate/high carbonation. Interesting flavors but not the most drinkable beer. Would be good with food.

A light cola brown with a smattering of khaki head. Smells of Thai food restaurants, I get the cayenne and cumin the most, then curry, coconut, lime. Taste is a bit briney, leafey lime flavor, a small bit of caramel malt sweetness, coconut, a tiny bit of heat from the cayenne. Interesting but I don't care to drink my Indian food. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium frothy tan head that retains well and laces the glass. The aroma is huge Indian spice, perfumey curry and lime and coconut. Very interesting. The flavor is interesting as well - lots of curry powder, sweet lime and a little coconut. This was a perfect beer to drink with my favorite curry dish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is strong of coconut, basil, curry, chocolate. Taste is coriander, fill bodied, lots of spice, sweet coconut that is balanced with bitter spices, a touch of heat...medium bodied. Overall, really nice.

Tap at Busters. Dark dense pour with a dense beige head. Very cool aroma of ginger, cumin, curry, coconut. Bit of pepper heat on the taste but tame enough to drink. Fun brew.

Bomber. Pours a stouty brownish-black , thick layer of espresso colored froth for a head, decent retention although not much lacing. Just gonna say this straight away before I give my rating... this smells absolutely nothing like Thai (or, more appropriately... Indian... which is why it says ’India-Style’, not ’Thai-Style’ on the freaking label. Thai Curry and much of the curries in India are very different, just putting my culinary two-cents in there for the guy who obviously wouldn’t know galangal from ginger from turmeric if I lined up the three roots in front of him. Sorry, pet peave). But I digress ... so yeah, nose is brown sugar, some vanilla, chiles, cocoa. Mouth is slick and oily, surprisingly quite dry, mild bitter and roasted, earthiness, a hint of cumin, ginger, coconut, tartness from the lime, very mild heat, some bakers chocolate and dark roasted coffee. I’m skeptical of a lot of these chili infused stouts and this one was no exception, but I trust the brewery so figured I’d give it a shot. Glad I did, as this exceeded my expectations. Namaste.

On tap at busters pours a dark brown/black with a medium ran head. Lots of curry in the aroma, cumin, Chocolate, with some coconut and lime. Big time curry flavor, sweetness from coconut, cumin, cayenne heat, and lime on the aftertaste. Lots of flavors going on, if this were some kind of chicken dish and not a beer I’d be all about it. As a beer its interesting, but I can’t drink a lot of this.

ajnepple (3308) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - APR 3, 2015
22 oz bottle from Tipsy’s. Black appearance with a light brown head that fully dissipates eventually. Spicy aroma with notes of curry, cayenne pepper, roast, coconut, toasted malts and light herbs. Flavor is moderately spicy with a lingering peppery finish. I enjoy the cayenne and coconut flavor with a stout but the cumin and curry could be toned down a little bit. Still, somewhat fun and enjoyable to drink.

The curry and red pepper really stand out on this one. Slightly spivey and roasted malt finish. Smells like curry and pours black with a thick tan head. Had out of a bomber at home. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
