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.

22oz in Seattle. Wow, strange. Huge spicy cumin aroma. Strong and strange. Creamy sweet body, better as a beer than aroma. Quite spicy, raw powdery spices. Very strange, but quirky interesting. Glad I tried it but not going to be seeking this out again.

Draft at the Old Grove Brewery. Pours almost clear copper with a fizzy beige head and lots of lacing. Tastes like dry pine, booze, caramel, and spicy hops. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like alcohol, caramel, and nutty pine hops.

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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4350) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 25, 2016
So Iím having curry for dinner and figured my aperitif would be this Curry Stout because, why not? Deep only black pour with a beige head. With the smell of curry wafting around my kitchen from the beer Iím mostly picking up stout character in the aroma: savory umami, cinnamon, nutmeg, a chocolate like spice I canít pin down. Truly the action curry is making this smell surprisingly sweet. The taste is sweet spicy chocolate with a big dollop of chilli pepper heat but still a sweet cardamom finish. With a Japanese curry this baby shines. A weird ass beer but fun. That sweetness I was getting was Chocolat covered coconut like those "mound" chocolates.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown and thick with very little head. Nose has a lot of roasted flavors with some of the spices coming through. The coconut really comes through in the taste, which is a flavor Iím not a fan of. Really interesting stout.

MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 24, 2011
dark red brown, thick creamy beige head that drops. Nose is pencil shavings, leafy and dry with light pepper, some coconut. Huge coconut flavor across mid, light chocolate sweetness and dry heat in finish, thin and salty with low carb. Dry spice and roast combine, work on each other.

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
