brnandersen (3272) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2013
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?

22oz bottle, courtesy of Mario from Brewed for Thought. Thanks, dude! Pours a dark, cola-brown color; creamy, fine-bubbled medium-tan head; excellent lacing. Lots of coconut, dark cocoa, and curry-like spicing in the aroma; very strange, but well-executed and a kickass melding of Indian spices and a cocoa-focused stout. Medium-full body; fluffy, pillowy carbonation; spicy Indian curry powder mixed with coconut and a cocoa/chocolaty core; this is pretty weird, and pretty delicious. Innovative, with the spices and coconut perfectly matched. Yum. Lingering finish: spicy curry, creamy coconut, toasty cocoa.

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.

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.

22oz Bottle. Thanks for sharing Dan! Insane Indian/Thai food aroma. Every coconut curry I’ve ever had. Masala liquor. This is insanely unbalanced and undrinkable. Is there any stout? Is there any beer? Is there any restraint? Goddammit. Toxicl and over-flavored. Only suitable as marinated.

Damico (3144) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2013
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.

Refrigerated brown bomber poured into a snifter. Aroma is turmeric, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is turmeric, lime, coconut, and cayenne. Indian food as a beer and quite flavorful.

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.

tgncc (3094) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Crazy beer with a lot going on. Nice aroma of lime, licorice, pepper, coconut. The appearance is jt black, thin cream colored head. The flavor is very hot pepper, coconut, lime. Sweet, but one hell of a spicy pepper bite. The finish is 100% burning pepper, like eating Indian food. Medium/thick in body, creamy mouthfeel. Interesting beer. A bit too much cayenne to be fully enjoyable.
