Black pour with a slight orange hue and a thin beige head .... so much going on in the aroma cumin, lime, curry and a good dose of coconut are all there .... taste is a treat ....lime, coconut, spicy curry with the heat and bite of cayenne pepper cooled by the lime .... finish and back end are loaded with the peppery bite ... what a different brew ... flavors are intense and the bite lingers big time while hiding the abv very well

Wow...just wow. I have never tried such a unique beer (and probably never will!). Sweet madras curry, candied banana, honey and coconut as well as some unidentifiable (to me) spice or leaf. In the mouth itís medium bodied with curry, coconut and lovely hot pepper sting on the tail. Much better than it sounds. My only problem with this is that it was slightly tough going through a whole pint as summer starts to hit here in Japan. Having said that, it was a pleasant stray from well worn paths and an unexpected delight.

This is a strange beer. Im glad I got to try it but it is very strange. Aroma is coconut curry to the extreme with notes of lime citrus. Taste is more of the same. Really has very few "beer" flavors as all I tend to get is coconut curry and lime on aroma and taste. Worth a try if you love indian food.

What a trip of a beer. Pours an dark brown color with a large light brown head. Notes of curry, meat, smoke, chocolate, cumin, and vanilla. Hints of lime citrus on the back end. Warming spices on the finish. Not something to drink every day but definitely an interesting beer.

On tap at Alewife Queens. Pours murky cola brown with light tan head. Aromas of coconut and vanilla with some citrus. Flavors of coconut, vanilla, roast, some curry spice, and touch of citrus. This beer tastes like a pina colada with some spice. Truly interesting and tasty beer.

(22oz bottle from HWC). Pours dark brown with thin khaki head. Has a nice garnet hue to it as well. After having just come out of the fridge, the first thing to hit the senses is the curry and sweet coconut. The taste is semi-sweet with lots of savory notes and roast. There is also some vegetal bitterness that Iím guessing is from the lime leaf and cayenne. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Finish is warming from the alcohol and cayenne. The cayenne burn is quite nice unless you are a wuss that doesnít eat spicy food. The beer has loads of flavors going on, but they arenít as overpowering as I thought they might be. This is not the spice profile that my wife (who is Indian) cooks with since she blends her own masala. Otherwise, this might be the perfect exotic beer. Really cool beer.

Draft. Deep brown body with a fizzy, beige head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of chocolate, spices, cumin, coconut, lime, pepper. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. The finish is peppery hot. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Hereís how it goes with this beer. For the first second itís in your mouth, you get a wash of flavors that work really well together: chocolate, curry coconut, roasted malts, spice. Then, bam, the cayenne pepper washes away all of that, its heat lingering long into the finish. The server said the difference in this pepper beer was that you could drink a lot of it. I disagree. I was tired of it three-quarters of the way through. Itís unique, for sure. I was prepared after the first few ounces to give it a big rating. But I changed my mind as I walked away from it after 5 ounces to order a different beer.

Dark pour from Valhalla. Light small head. Cocunuts and curry smell and dominate the taste with the cayenne coming on. Fascinating beer but probably best in small doses

Iím not picking up all the intricacies of the caynne pepper, cumin, toasted coconut, and kaffir lime leaf, but the curry is definitely front and center.
