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

Draft. Dark with minimal head. Hard to get much aroma past the cigars of this place. Slight spicey. Taste is a flavor explosion. Vanilla, cinnamon, subtle spiciness in the finish. Wow. Spiciness continues to grow. By the end if the glass I likely won't be happy but this is damn good. Definitely spicey as I finished. ---Rated via intercellular device

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?

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?!?

Habanero (3857) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2015
Bottled. Pours pitch black beer with an average tan head. Aroma of slightly roasted malt, chocolate and spice. Sweet flavor that ends up dry, bitter and peppery notes. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A nice brew indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

jbruner (3827) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Pours an opaque black from the bottle with thin brown head and light lacing. Aroma of lime, spicy curry, and roasted grains. Taste is freaking weird, but awesome, an indian curry explosion in a beer form. Chili picks up and coconut comes out more as it warms. Weird, awesome, I want more.

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.

Sampled at the SCCCT event at Friendship Brewery. It poured a dark brown/black color with a tan head. The aroma was of sweet malts, cocoa, coconut, spices and vanilla. The taste was similar to the aroma with more roasted malts, peppers, curry, chocolate, citrus and some coconut with a touch of heat in the finish. Very interesting.

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]
