Pint glass at Toronado. Dark brown pour with a small beige head that had poor retention. The aroma is quite pungent with toffee, cloves and coconut--smells like an incense stick. The taste was similar to the nose, lots of cloves with other complex curry spices swirling about, can definitely pick out some cayenne. The malt bast is full and silky smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and disturbing. I really didn’t care for this, its a bit to Frankenstein-like, I felt I was drinking liquefied incense. I do applaud the bold experimentation, but this is just not for me.

BenH (2014) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle. Black with little ring of head. The aroma is spectacular, more along the lines of a thai or malasian curry than indian, a perfect balance of spices, nasi goreng, lemon grass, lime, ginger and the coconut ties the whole thing together. Taste of lemon grass, lime and coconut, slightly roasty. Seems ever so slightly thin and quite spicy, cuts the back of the throat. Very well executed and completely unique

Craziest beer ever so I have to give it a 4. Crazy curry flavor in a beer are you serious?!?!

jbruner (1982) - Athens, 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.

Bruce’s birthday tasting st the craft. Nose is lychee tumeri curry. Flavour is perfumed hot spicy finish that lingers. Very unusual but it hangs together very well.

On tap at pony bar with James. This beer is phenomenal! Super unique... Roasty lactic stout, pine, hot curry cooled by those mint crumbs you see at Indian restaurants near the host counter. Love it.

suprchunk (1952) - Crestview, Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Dark brown pour. Small light tan head. No lacing. Fruity aroma with notes of flowers and malt. Taste is sweet orange up front with pepper spraying you in the back. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at The Pony Bar. A really interesting brew that tastes like an Indian snack - the most Indian tasting brew I have ever hard. Lots of hot pepper, cumin, nuts, and coriander, plus a dash of coconut.

jstraw (1900) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Black with modest, fizzy, brown head, light legs / Interesting, rich nose of curry, cream, chocolate, coconut, cumin, lime / Medium body, a hint thin, smooth, creamy, some sweetness, good balance with light bitterness with a big cayenne kick on the finish / Rich flavors of semi sweet chocolate, coconut, curry, cream, lime, cumin, hot pepper / A great idea, with a cool flavor profile, somewhat clumsily excecuted. Still, all in all, a very worthwhile beer.

Bottle at craft ale house. Pours pitch black with no head to speak of. The aroma Is almost barrel aged but has cumin notes. The taste is spicy with a vanilla, coconut oak sweetness. Unique.
