Pours thick and black with a small tan head. Nose is lime, Mexican candy, curry, nutmeg and pepper. Taste is sweet at first then bitter and pleasantly so. Mouthfeel is soft and sticky, body is heavy and finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had to pour it out. Way to much spices. I could smell it the second I opened it. Not buying again.

Prufrockstar (1361) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 25, 2015
Bottle thanks to Eric. Deep brown pour, khaki head. Aroma makes me think spicy chai tea. Taste brings chocolate, molasses (pretty sweet this one), chai, and a nice zippy back of the throat pepper heat. Medium+ body, good carbonation. Fun.

beerbaaron (1546) - Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2015
Dark brown. No head. Aroma features easy to identify curry, cumin, and cayenne. Flavor adds chocolate and a little licorice to the spices along with a hint of roast. Coconut and lime finds its way through in the finish, which provides a pleasant cayenne heat as well. Superb balance of all the different elements, all of which can be picked out individually but at the same time all flow seamlessly. Interesting sipper. Superbly Well made.

I get hints of chocolate, black licorice, and curry. A little spicy aftertaste. Good in smal sips and small quantities. Smells like cirry, cumin, cayenne.

euniceradio (68) - Colton, California, USA - APR 22, 2015
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.

c_lee_burton (161) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 19, 2015
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.

jeremyh70 (841) - Missouri, USA - APR 17, 2015
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.

jahshuwuh (477) - USA - APR 17, 2015
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

peterschreurs (79) - Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2015
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
