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.

Thanks Billy for this bottle. Forgot to mention to him I don’t 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 it’s 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. It’s still too spicy for my taste.

Bottle. Pours black with a very thin tan head. Aroma of cumin, roasted malt, roasted pepper, sweet lime, chocolate. It smells like a spice cabinet. Flavor of lots of spices and some heat up front - cumin, cayenne pepper, curry - followed by roasted malt, chocolate notes, and licorice. The coconut is probably least prominent. The spices are definitely powerful but the underlying malt notes are still present. Overall a great and very complex beer and great for those who love their spicy stouts.

25-JAN-2012, bottle @Papsø tasting, @Yespr.
Dark, dark brown , almost black with low tan head.
Aroma is curry and a little roast. The curry is the sort of cheap supermarket curry.
Taste is roast, curry, spice, coco nut, and a strong chili burn.
Very funny. Actually quite complex. Curry in a beer? Nah, does not work for me - too much, and I keep searching for a bowl of rice.

Tap@bishops gamla stan. Whoa, this is heavily spiced. Just like walking into a, indian spice shop. I can pick up curry, turmic, jeera, cinnamon and that roasted version of jeera, whatever it’s called. And sort of star anise spicy sweetness. These all on a black soft roasty backing. Soft body. Soft roasty. Lots of spices. Clean. Very interesting beer. Way more heavily spiced than any xmas or similiar beer I’ve had.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tulip draft at The Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, Florida. The pour is a deep brown black with a small khaki head. The aroma is lime initially, along with the cumin spice, curry and then a coconut toasted sweetness as the beer warms. The taste is bonkers, all of the component aroma flavors are blended cleanly (somehow) with spice, coconut and lime all adding complexity. The palate is medium bodied with soft carbonation and a dry lightly sweet coconut finish. Really well executed.
As a side note, I have been seeing this beer show up in search results for Indra for years, glad to have tried it for that reason alone.

Tap at Young & Jackson’s. Probably one of the weirdest stouts I have ever had but i absolutely loved this. Smells exactly like a curry, all the right elements are there - coconut, lime, spice, coriander, meatiness, cumin. Crazy good. I drank a pint of this, so that means it must be tasty

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black and bubbly with a large mocha head...great lacing, retention, amd lively appearance. Aroma has definite exotic aromas...most notable are cumin, lime and coconut...the curry is faint. Flavor follows suit...the coconut really helps bring the rest of the flavors together nicely!...still some roastiness...cumin and curry really kick in towards the end. Mouthfeel is medium/heavy and creamy with a roasty/spicy finish that leaves a warm tingle on the tongue and in the throat. I dig this!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle from Tipsy’s. Black appearance with a light brown head that fully dissipates eventually. Spicy aroma with notes of curry, cayenne pepper, roast, coconut, toasted malts and light herbs. Flavor is moderately spicy with a lingering peppery finish. I enjoy the cayenne and coconut flavor with a stout but the cumin and curry could be toned down a little bit. Still, somewhat fun and enjoyable to drink.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
