La noix de coco, le cumin et le cayenne s’unissent au chocolat pour me gifler de saveurs!! Plus elle se réchauffe, plus le curry et le cumin performent. Ça fonctionne.

Bottle. Pitch black pour with a white head. Smells like Tai curry. Earthy roasted malts, nuts, and spices. Wild and wacky...

Bomber with many thanks to gorditoabd. Pours a dark brown with a fairly large tan head and enticing aromas of chocolate and spice. Curry comes through fairly strong and buries some of the weaker aromas. Flavor is very nice and has a pretty good heat (cayenne?) to it that keeps you on your toes. This is lovely.

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.

On draught at The Monk’s Kettle in SF. Pours nearly black with a one-finger light brown head. Nose is overwhelming. Definitely tastes like a Thai curry: kaffir lime, coconut, curry, cayenne, cumin. You can definitely taste all the listed flavors because this is spiced to the Nth degree. Tastes just as spicy; the stout can barely fight its way through. This was an 11 oz pour. The taste grew really tiresome after about 5 oz. Unique, for sure.

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

Black pour, small tan head, minimal lace/retention. Aroma is complex with notes of chocolate, various spices (read - curry and pepper, *not* coriander etc) light roast, caramel. Medium bodied, pretty good balance of spicy heat. Straightforward malt structure lacks some complexity but it’s fairly well balanced with the spicing. Anything more would probably lean towards unpleasant unless it was a bigger and/or more complex beer.

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

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

This beer has me on the fence. It is complex. Unlike most beers. But it might be too much, at least for me. A swirl of vanilla, cinnamon and pepper gives it a kick. The 4oz pour was more than enough. The aroma works better than the flavor.
