Pours a thick black with about one finger of head that dissipates slowly. Aroma is intense! Lots of spicy notes, coconut, a hint of lime. The taste is also very strong! A little too intense for my liking. The curry and cayenne heat that comes in on the finish is intense. Overall, I appreciate the complex brewing that this beer takes to make!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to pint glass
Cumin, toasted malt, cinnamon, cayenne, nutmeg, lime.
Deep black with no head
Lots of cumin, malt and bread.
Very interesting experience and interesting drink, but as a beer I think it’s too over the top curry.

Draft - Curry powder and cinnamon with the slightest touch of chocolate. Jet black with a thin brown head. Curry, coconut, dark roast and some chilli spice. If you think chicken wing flavoured chips are cool, you will like this. I don’t see the point.

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.
