4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black. Head dissipates to nothing...hence the low appearance rating. Aroma of roasty toasty coconut, banana, bread, chocolate, carrot cake, cream, and fresh-baked goodness. Taste is roasty, coconut, chocolate, and buttered bread. Finish is a slow burn of cayenne pepper and curry. So freaking good!! Mouthfeel is light. Wish it were a little heavier. Honestly would have rated this a 4.5+ but no head...looks like a soda.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown almost black with a dark tan head that dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing. The smell is sweet coconut and spices with a definite cayenne scent and nose tingle. The taste is sweet chocolate upfront with the cumin and curry spice. Then comes the cayenne flavor and heat mixed with hints of lime and coconut. Low carbonation and creaminess lead to lingering heat on the palate. Interesting and good. Would like a little better balance of the creamy coconut. Not sure the lime fits best. Kinda like drinking an Indian dinner.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
