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!

On draught!
Pours basically black with a small but well retained head and not much lacing on the glass.

The aroma is cardamom, cumin, cinnamon, chocolate & coffee. Itís also got a bunch of other curry spice elements I canít single out. Suffice to say it sort of smells like some sort of interesting curried mocha, neat.

The flavor is really pretty curry heavy, but it retains the nice roastiness and bitter-espresso-like flavors that make it very stout like. Itís not especially sweet for what it is, but itís nowhere near being very dry. The beer seems to have quite a vanilla flavor going on along with cinnamon, cumin, and again the sort of load of spices that one might use in a curry, most of which Iím only vaguely familiar with (shame on my palate)

I just never expected such an oddity to come from a brewery Iíve always sort of associated with straightforward hoppy beers... guess I was in the dark, huh?

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

jesperhammer (3786) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2013
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.

11 aug 2002, tap at the brewery. Dark brown, almost black. Wow, nose is awesome! Curry and coconut. Thin body and faintly fizzy. Flavors flip back and forth between curry and toasted coconut. Some dark chocolate becomes prominent after you get over the unique flavored. Pretty fun. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Ariel. Black with tan head. Curry sauce and cumin and some sweet chili in the nose, and a taste thatís all Indian food with bubblegum and lots of coconut. Full body, very hot and spicy finish. WTF?!?
