Bottle. Pours out almost black with a slight tan head. Aroma is of cumin, lime, coconut, curry, chili peppers, light roast, wow...lots going on. Taste is of a nice balance of all ingredients, like liquid Indian food. Curry, roast, cumin, chili peppers with mild heat, lime, coconut and a rather well hidden Abu. Definitely as they described but not 100% my thing

20121215 750ml from Canalís in Marlton, NJ. This one inspired me to log in for a rare online rate. Darkest cola brown with fleeting beige head then sort of flat and dull looking. Macaroon aroma with mild peat and light milk chocolate. Body is soft, creamy, coating, sticky. Flavor is spot on for the description: a nice coconut curry with slight hints of lime and a mild peppery burn. Love this beer, and at seven percent I could drink a mess of it. Wait, itís curry flavored so it should be a nice hangover cure, too, right? Excellent stuff.

Bomber. Thanks to mike12da. Coconut, airplane glue, sweet curry nose. Big ass cayenne pepper kick right away; mid palate gets even hotter. All the ingredient flavors are apparent at different moments (curry, cayenne, cumin, lime) and blend in interesting ways with the chocolate base. The cayenne, however, stays in the forefront all throughout. Fun, novel stuff.

Bottle from Holiday.pours dark and stouty with a frothy full covering of dense tan bubbles. Smells medicinal, like cough drops, then you get the curry with some seemingly capsicum tingle in the nostril, then the dry herbalness of the kaffir leaf. So, yeah, you can detect each of those in the nose...does it combine well for a beer aroma? No 100% convinced. Flavors seem to mend together more than the nose did, you can taste the cayene, the madras, and the lime leaf, especially in the finish where it seems to really take hold and linger...add to this the almost powdery cocoa flavor of the malts...what you get, is...well, interesting I guess...but beers with a shit ton of spices always have a weird medicinal character to them and this beer is no different, at least at first..except I think Iím really digging the cayenne influence...and as a indian food cooker, its interesting to see these ingrediants coming together in a beer...and it could even pair well with similar food, but its still a bit medicinal, but this has already started to subside through the first pour. It is spicy too..not only with the indian spices, but the chile does give it a nice solid heat. Weíll have to see how I feel after the whole bottle.

Good lord what a crazy brew. I ordered not knowing what it was. It took me awhile before I figured out it was curry and the all I could think of was this Thai Green Curry dish I always order for take out. In fact if I get drunk and then by mistake spill whatever stout im drinking into my food and then instead of discarding slurp up juices then that is this beer. really interesting and fun, slick finish with heat hitting hard in after taste.

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

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.

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
