5oz sample at Daily Growler, UA - deep dark brown pour, khaki head. aroma of even curry spice. tastes of curry spice that heats up throughout the sip. Strange, but only interesting to try once. 6.8

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.

Crazy beer with a lot going on. Nice aroma of lime, licorice, pepper, coconut. The appearance is jt black, thin cream colored head. The flavor is very hot pepper, coconut, lime. Sweet, but one hell of a spicy pepper bite. The finish is 100% burning pepper, like eating Indian food. Medium/thick in body, creamy mouthfeel. Interesting beer. A bit too much cayenne to be fully enjoyable.

Thanks Billy for this bottle. Forgot to mention to him I donít like spicy beer. Enjoyed at fridge temp in a snifter.

A - Brown to black int eh glass, 2 finger leather head that fades to a thin line.

S - Smells of chipotle, chili peppers and Indian food.

T - Taste is very spicy at the finish. Up front itís like curry chicken and masala tea. The middle is roasted and nutty.

M - Heavy body, very foamy carbonation

O - This beer is very spicy. Luckily, the curry balances out the chili pepper pretty good. Itís still too spicy for my taste.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - NOV 17, 2012
22oz bottle. Rating #133. Dark brown, very dense, not much light shining through. Big spice notes throughout this beer, curry was a big part of it, but it didnít take over the beer. Very tasty overall, everyone that tried was trying figure out where there was a good Indian restaurant close by. (2558)

On tap at bitter creek. Pours out black topped with a tan head. Nose is all curry fruit spice and some malt. Taste is as the nose with lots of spice curry and chillies. This was fun a really good curry beer.

22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 4/21/2014. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 2 finger fairly dense tan head with decent retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, toast, roasted malt, vanilla, coconut, cumin, cinnamon, clove, peppercorn, cardamom, cayenne, lime, herbal, and toast/herbal earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and the wide variety of spices; with good strength. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, toast, roasted malt, vanilla, coconut, cumin, cinnamon, clove, peppercorn, cardamom, cayenne, lime, herbal, and toast/herbal earthiness. Moderate earthy spices and heat on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, toast, vanilla, coconut, cumin, cinnamon, clove, peppercorn, cardamom, cayenne, lime, herbal, and toast/herbal earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and big spice flavors; with a nice malt/spice balance with no cloying flavors after the finish and a moderate amount of lingering heat. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth and fairly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol was well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish other than the heat from the spices. Overall this was a very nice spiced stout. All around good complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and spice flavors; and quite smooth to sip on despite the moderate heat. A very enjoyable offering.

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Dark mahogany pour with a small caramel head. Brownie batter, curry, coconut, light citrus, and spicy cayenne in the nose. It smells wonderful and tastes terrible. Nothing about this melds or comes together. The capsaicin is distracting, the curry and cococut are overpowering, and the lime adds an odd twang. Love all of the flavors individually but this thing isnít subtle and lighter touch was needed. Weird! Youíll either love it or hate it...polarizing would be the best descriptor.

Something about this beer was dead on with me. The pour is very dark brown with a thin tan head. The aroma is intriguing, orange rind, coconut, lime, a sense of curry. The flavor has the lime and coconut along with the curry, and some spices. The cayenne shows up on the swallow. All the aromas and flavors seem to go quite well with each other. Strange brew but very tasty.

bottle, from Triangle Wine. Great aromo, sweet, spicy. Dark orangy brown color, small head, faded quick, no lace. sweet spiced flavor. Medium body, smooth creamy mouthfeel, spiced finish. Darn good beer, aroma has so much going on, the curry, coconut, lime, cocoa. flavor is equally tasty. real unique beer, winner
