Very interesting idea...best by 02JAN13
Pours black with a edge and some etch of mocha foam. Smells like curry mix in the spice jar still - profoundly strong. Oddly, the lime comes through and actually as it warms I think the cumin is what may put this over the edge for appreciation. I love curry, and I love cumin, but a little too much here. Flavor is like biting into a cumin, kaffir, massamun curry ball with a bit of cocoa and coffee. I can’t stress this enough: THE BEER NEEDS TO WARM UP SUBSTANTIALLY. Medium bodied with moderated carb and a relatively dry finish.

22 oz bomber from Dave F. Black hue with caramel colored mostly diminishing frothy head. Malt & caynne are strong on the nose, especially the pepper. Malty coconut hits your taste buds up front with a moderate lasting malt & pepper (hot finish) finish. This one wasn’t for me.

On tap at Davidson Beverage Company. Asian spices come through very well, nicely balanced, and a great increasing burn at the adam’s apple the further you get into the pint.

What a trip of a beer. Pours an dark brown color with a large light brown head. Notes of curry, meat, smoke, chocolate, cumin, and vanilla. Hints of lime citrus on the back end. Warming spices on the finish. Not something to drink every day but definitely an interesting beer.

Bottle. The look is black in color, thin tan head, and dark. The smell is coconut, curry, cocoa, lime, malt, spice, and nice. The taste is heat, spice, curry, coconut, touch of sweetness, and some burn.

It pours deep dark chocolate brown with a small amount of tan suds. Aromas of dark chocolate, caramel, curry and chiles. Nice roasty bitterness with solid caramel sweetness, some milk chocolate and earthy curry and with well tempered cayenne heat and some more chocolate and just a touch of coconut. Medium-full bodied with soft-ish carbonation. Really delicious and well balanced while maintaining complexity.

I’m not picking up all the intricacies of the caynne pepper, cumin, toasted coconut, and kaffir lime leaf, but the curry is definitely front and center.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is like an over-peppered can of V-8 juice! Peppers, spice and vegetables. Pours a solid dark dirt-brown with a tan ring and minimal lacing. The taste is multilayered and complex, but overall very peppery. Cayenne pepper dominates the flavor, but there is also a hint of sweetness provided by the coconut. A lasting "warm" aftertaste keeps the taste sensation going long after the swallow. Medium body and moderate carbonatin. Overall, who needs a spicy Bloody Mary when youâ€™ve got this brew! Take care - little goes a long way.
