bottle, from Triangle Wine. Great aromo, sweet, spicy. Dark orangy brown color, small head, faded quick, no lace. sweet spiced flavor. Medium body, smooth creamy mouthfeel, spiced finish. Darn good beer, aroma has so much going on, the curry, coconut, lime, cocoa. flavor is equally tasty. real unique beer, winner

Wow - one of the most unique brews I have ever tasted! The beer poured dark and unclear on tap with a big creamy head. The aroma was sweet and delicious, unique candy like sweetness from the lime leaf and maybe the curry somehow?! The flavor starts off like a roasted stout or brown ale, nice, but then immediately the curry and pepper hits the palate with the coconut and kumin in the background. The kaffir limes help balance the whole thing out as was done in the aroma. I really learned to like this beer with its complexity as the glass went down. The aroma was thoroughly enjoyed for sure.

Dark mahogany pour with a small caramel head. Brownie batter, curry, coconut, light citrus, and spicy cayenne in the nose. It smells wonderful and tastes terrible. Nothing about this melds or comes together. The capsaicin is distracting, the curry and cococut are overpowering, and the lime adds an odd twang. Love all of the flavors individually but this thing isn’t subtle and lighter touch was needed. Weird! You’ll either love it or hate it...polarizing would be the best deScriptor.

Dark brown, red edges, tan cover. Lots and lots of coconut, potpourri aroma. Taste is lightly spicy, coconut, some light leaf. Interesting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Something about this beer was dead on with me. The pour is very dark brown with a thin tan head. The aroma is intriguing, orange rind, coconut, lime, a sense of curry. The flavor has the lime and coconut along with the curry, and some spices. The cayenne shows up on the swallow. All the aromas and flavors seem to go quite well with each other. Strange brew but very tasty.

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.

Damn what an interesting beer or at least a novel beer. I have wanted to try this for a while and I so wanted to share this with the beer geeks back in KS but checked baggage costs are so high. Either way, pours like a regular stout and good god all mighty the nose hits you like an Indian rock. Damnnnnnn, someone get me a mango lassi to go along with this beer. Its strong and I like Indian food but I do not loooooveeee Indian food, so its a bit of a conundrum. Flavor is better, more subdued, get some stout and strong but not hella (as the kids say) strong curry. Heat, the heat between me and this beer. its not the pepper ale type heat, its a small but constant heat that comes in waves and burns the top of your intestines, I love it. Cool beer. Bottle is filter clean after the last pour. This one is with you in mind Eric.
