4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

Thanks for this beer Sev! Pours a very dark brown colour with a lacy tan head. Amazing laksa curry aroma with coconut, lime, ginger, nutmeg and cayenne pepper characters. Lovely balance between curry spices and chocolate malt. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Fantastic!

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

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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.

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.
