Bottle. I had seen this and passed on it many times before finally picking this one up. apparently, itís not for me. I got a hell of a lot of cough syrup/medicine flavors along with the curry, cayenne, and other spices. I honestly found it very difficult to drink and poured out over 90% of the bottle. Oh well, obviously my experience is fairly singular and I know BP to be a reputable brewery so Iíll just mark this down as a wash.

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?!?

22 oz. bottle. Pours a blackish brown with a medium tan head. Aroma of indian food. Curry. Meat and cumin notes. Mild pepper and lime. Flavor is meaty, umami, with cumin and cayenne notes. Some roast, some dark malt notes. Interesting. Lingering heat in the finish.

22oz bottle. black pour with a head that diminishes to nothing in a few seconds. enticing aroma of red curry, chili, vanilla(coconut?). a medium bodied beer wit a spicy heat in the finish. lots of cumin notes and curry, lesser notes of tart lime and sweet coconut. really fun to drink. i canít say iíve had anything remotely like this before...itís not just your typical hot pepper stout. layers of spices. awesome...just not sure i want to drink 2 pints of this in a row.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2014 Craziest beer ever so I have to give it a 4. Crazy curry flavor in a beer are you serious?! Dark pour, nose is curry, taste is curry, so much curry in this.

Bomber from Samís, Durham. Right off the bat, let me say that I deeply regret not getting more than a single bottle of this. INSANE nose, you really get the subtle coconut and lime, along with dusty coriander, garam masala, and a nice healthy foreign stout character. Mouthfeel ever so slightly thin, but damn thatís some nice kick on the finish. Coconut milk for sure in the taste, giving it a nice robust core as the heat comes on and backs off in waves. Never merely burn, though, always complexly flavorful. Holy fuck this is good.

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?

Habanero (3953) - 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. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

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.
