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 I’m having a hard time imagining myself stomach more than the small glass that I have in front of me. I didn’t think it was horrible but just too spicy in summary. Carbonation was moderate, body as well. This isn’t a stout but still a fun experiment.

Aroma: curry, some coconut. Appearance: dark, hazy brown, small, beige, frothy head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: intense spices curry dominating, peppery notes. Overall: very interesting spiced Stout. Pint at Ballast Point Brewery, San Diego.

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 10, 2013
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.

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.

jcnielsen (3000) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2013
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.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Dark brown, red edges, tan cover. Lots and lots of coconut, potpourri aroma. Taste is lightly spicy, coconut, some light leaf. Interesting.

pineypower (2980) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2012
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

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

puboflyons (2919) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 13, 2015
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.

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