Bottle from Brusiní Ales. Pours black with a half inch of khaki foam. Big coconut and lime notes on the nose. The coconut and lime notes complement the malty notes on the tongue. Finishes with heat and flavor of the cayenne. The heat builds up if you drink it too quickly. Itís like an Indian restaurant in a beer. Fantastic!

22 oz bottle from Tipsyís. 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.

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.

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.

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 itís 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 Iíve had.

25-JAN-2012, bottle @PapsÝ 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.

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.

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

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. 8/4/8/4/15 [3.9/5]

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.
