Sample at Yard House Seattle. This brew pours brownish-black with a medium thin light beige head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. Curry, cinnamon and malt in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of sweet/spicy curry, toasted coconut and citrus. The finish is spicy with a dark chocolate and curry aftertaste. Above average overall.

dark brown, small brown head with poor retention and no lacing. coconut, roast, lots of cumin, some anise and ginger, little astringent lime, finishes with a hot of cayenne. medium sweet, medium-light spicy, little bitter. medium body, creamy feel. slightly soapy-feeling finish. hard to drink a lot of, but really neat.

Bomber. Octopus ink colored with a cap of light brown foam. Aroma is all curry with some lime and coconut on the side. Taste is curry, dark chocolate and toasted coconut upfront followed by cinnamon, cumin and cayenne pepper. Moderately creamy body with medium carbonation and a hot, spicy finish. Overall, a liquid curry dinner spice bomb best enjoyed in small doses.

Opaque black - brown beer, good pale tan head. Palate is light and airy, semi dry. I thought this would be a heavily spiced clunky stout, I could not have been more wrong! Pleasant sweetish spice, perfume floral with violets, rose and those dipping trays you get whilst waiting to pick up your take away at the Indian Restaurant. Light lime and coconut and a trace of chocolate. Cayenne pepper starts in the mid and builds to the finish, but itís never too hot. Semi dry finish. Wonderfuly judged spices, this hangs together superbly well. If I have had a better spiced beer I donít recall it.

Bottle picked up in Charlotte. Pours a black color with tan head. Curry, spicy pepper along with roasty malt aromas. Curry, coconut, spicy flavors. Really cool flavor profile, and fun to try, but not a beer I could drink a lot of.

(090813) On draft from Yard House, Chino Hills. A one of a kind beer. It makes you feel like you've travelled Far East, but really you actually haven't gone anywhere at all. Pours a deep black with a nice thin chocolate brown head. You can definitely smell the spices and curry coming through. It has the body of a chocolate stout but ends with the bite from the cumin and the cayenne and curry. Very complex and worth a try. I've never had a beer like it!

Wow! Draft from the Yardhouse @ Red Rock, Las Vegas. Pours a deep dark brown with a decent lingering head. Aroma is pleasant and intriguing: bread, hay, herbs, you can smell the curry and coconut. Flavor is decently balanced and very interesting. Cayenne, curry, coconut, and lime all come through. Iíve never had a beer like it. Really, enjoyed and will definitely buy again.

Pours near black with tan head and no lacing. Aroma makes me feel like Iím in an Indian restaurant...tons of curry, cumin, and hot peppers. Taste is amazingly complex. Body of a stout, but taste changes from dark, chocolaty malts to cumin to warming peppers, curry, and tons of coconut. Then to heat. My lips are on fire. Wow, great unique beer!

22 oz. bottle - Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head that faded quickly. No lacing. Aroma is herbs and spices. None like Iíve smelled before. The flavor is peppers, roasted malt, and light coconut. A little heat lingers in the finish. Medium body. A good beer.

22. This beer shouldnít work...but it kinda seems like it does work. So tough to be sure. Pours black with a dense and creamy dark tan head that hangs around. Big lively nose of clear turmeric and cumin, also definitely some cayenne. This smells delicious. This smells nothing like beer. Thereís also some roasty dark chocolate hanging around under this. These shouldnít work together. They seem to work together. Thereís an extraordinary amount of cognitive dissonance involved in enjoying this beer. As it warms, the lime note becomes more pronounced. This is just nuts. This is like a great mystery movie that gets better and better the more you realize you have no idea whatís going on. Creamy medium body with soft carb. You just go ahead and try to imagine what a roasty, chocolatey stout with lime, hot peppery cayenne, earthy cumin, sharp turmeric, and whatever else all together tastes like. This beer defies the validity of any beer rating--of any beer writing. Itís certainly better enjoyed than discussed. After ratings thousands of beers, Iím going to play a card I donít think Iíve played: Just try this beer. Thereís no point explaining or describing it, and youíre probably curious. And as to the finish, itís notably complex, with malty sweetness, some fruity notes, some spicy elemen...oh, never mind.
