22oz bottle. Drank during Pliny clone brew day @ Bob F.'s house. Pours black with a finger of creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, big cumin notes, cayenne pepper, and hints of coconut. Taste is earthy, with roasted malt, cocoa powder, cumin, and a spicy cayenne pepper burn in the finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark brown with a small white head that leaves light lacing. Nose is of an Indian spice shop, hot curry and all. Taste is incredibly spicy and hot, good thing that there is a nice lime flavor to it or else it would just be completely undrinkable. This is burning and Iím having a hard time imagining myself stomach more than the small glass that I have in front of me. I didnít think it was horrible but just too spicy in summary. Carbonation was moderate, body as well. This isnít a stout but still a fun experiment.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle picked up in Charlotte. Pours a black color with tan head. Curry, spicy pepper along with roasty malt aromas. Curry, coconut, spicy flavors. Really cool flavor profile, and fun to try, but not a beer I could drink a lot of.

Bomber from Windy City. Nose is very herbal. Herbal and quite spiced. Cayenne is fairly hot. Interesting coconut finish. Quite different. Pretty tasty actually.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from 65 cl. bottle. Pitch black with a thin, tan head. Very spicy aroma with lots of curry, pepper, limes, vanilla and coconut. Roasted malts. Taste is sweet. Medium body, soft carbonation. Finishes lightly bitter and spicy with the entire menu from an Indian restaurant. Butter chicken and papadams, anyone?

Draft at Olympic. From notes. Coffee, chocolate and curry. Spicy but a quick heat. Great with my burger.

22 oz. bottle - Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head that faded quickly. No lacing. Aroma is herbs and spices. None like Iíve smelled before. The flavor is peppers, roasted malt, and light coconut. A little heat lingers in the finish. Medium body. A good beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle. Rating #133. Dark brown, very dense, not much light shining through. Big spice notes throughout this beer, curry was a big part of it, but it didnít take over the beer. Very tasty overall, everyone that tried was trying figure out where there was a good Indian restaurant close by. (2558)

From the 650 ml. bottle. Dark brown pour with a modest foamy tan head. I get some coconut and sweet malts for a moment on the nose but the spicy curry, cumin, and cayenne are powerful sensations too. Medium body. This has some heat! Maybe way too much heat for my palate. The curry, cumin, and cayenne penetrate the senses to the tenth degree. The spice makes this one a slow sipper for me and I am thinking about what sort of recipes I might be able to cook using this beer as a base.
