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?

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.

Dark pour from Valhalla. Light small head. Cocunuts and curry smell and dominate the taste with the cayenne coming on. Fascinating beer but probably best in small doses

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.

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.

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.

On tap at Ballast Point Tasting Room. Pours very dark brown. Smells like an Indian grocery store. But also some sweetness and maltiness. Wow. Flavor is off the wall. Coconut. Some spicy chills. Curry paste. Crazy. Finishes very dry with a good amount of burn on the back of the throat. Crazy stuff!!!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Phone rate at Tiger!Tiger! Many pours over the last couple weeks. Black with beige head. Dark chocolate and coconut dominate, lime and roasted malt, mod amount of earthy spice. Flavor is still pretty tropical with the coconut lime notes, fairly earthy with bitterness at a 3, spicy heat at a 2-3. Alcohol well masked, alcohol too. Medium body, low mod carbonation. I didn’t love the first glass. 2-3-4 and five I loved it.

Pours black with a thick mocha head. Aroma of curry, coconut and vanilla. Taste is lime, curry, pepper and coconut. Nice heat that creeps in at the finish. Wow this is so complex. Smooth and fairly easy to drink however the heat intensifies as you drink

Black pour with a slight orange hue and a thin beige head .... so much going on in the aroma cumin, lime, curry and a good dose of coconut are all there .... taste is a treat ....lime, coconut, spicy curry with the heat and bite of cayenne pepper cooled by the lime .... finish and back end are loaded with the peppery bite ... what a different brew ... flavors are intense and the bite lingers big time while hiding the abv very well
