Bottle. Pours black with thick tan head that quickly recedes to nothing. Nose is pretty crazy - big coconut aroma, some lime. Smells like a tropical drink or suntan lotion. Flavor is coconut, a more pronounced lime flavor, some curry, a decent amount of heat. Thick mouthfeel. Really unique.

Dark pour with a big tan head featuring bubbles of different sizes, looking somewhat like pancake batter freshly poured on a hot griddle. Curry aroma hits the nose even before lifting the glass. Cumin and cayenne are also well represented, along with roasted coffee. Very unusual and very tasty.

Nope, this beer was not for me. Pretty orange brown pour with a light tan head. Aroma is straight up curry powder. Maybe some more subtle spice around the edges, but it smelled like an Indian food restaurant. Flavor was a bit more toned down on the curry and the other spices came through a bit, but this one was killed for me with the curry. Just not a good flavor in a beer. I applaud the creativity though.

Black pour, off white head. A lot of curry flavor in the nose and there is a wonderful cayenne pepper bite at the end. Itís very good.

A - Pours a dark brown-black with a finger of frothy tan-khaki head atop. The head fades down fairly quickly leaving behind some light lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of roasted chocolate malts with curry powder, cayenne, cumin, turmeric, kaffir lime, coconut, and a touch of cinnamon. T - Starts off with a mix of roasted chocolate malts with some curry powder, coconut, and kaffir lime. Through the middle, the cayenne and cumin come through with some cinnamon and other spices. The finish is a mix of roasted chocolate malts, cayenne, cumin, curry powder, and kaffir lime. M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and spicy finish. D - Very drinkable. Very interesting blend of curry spices in the export stout. Good overall balance with great complexity.

11/29/12 notes: bottle, $6.99. Pour is brown black, semi-viscous with a small white head. Aroma of mint, chipotle, dark chocolate. Body is creamy, mild carbonation, sticky but not too long. The salient flavor is mint, asian herbs initially- perhaps because of how unusual this flavor profile is. This is rounded by more traditional mocha and kilned malts, with a hit of peppery spice (I could see curry here if told) near the finish. Pretty well-rounded and unique creation, more effective than Stoneís mint chocolate porter, of which I draw intuitive comparisons. Score is only hampered by my belief that herbs and dark ales just donít make natural complements.

Tasted on 6/8/2012 at SAVOR 2012. Pours dark black. Interesting mix of spices and flavors, a nice change compared to the average Imperial Stout. Light bitterness, spicy, smooth.

The cumin makes itself well known right away as you pour the beer into a glass. Aromas of softened cumin and coconut fill the air and invade the nose before I even grabbed the glass. The beer looks pretty brown as it falls into the glass, but settles to a pretty black color. Itís a really loud beer at first, and the light brown head fizzles away very quickly. Head retention: none. Healthy, fast-rising carbonation persists long after the pour, and if it wasnít for the fact that its bubbles are small Iíd take this for a dark cola. The coconutty cumin nose feels overpowering at first, but starts to make the beer seem more like a simple sweet stout after a while - something more along the lines of a coconut porter. A touch of chili powder rounds out the end of the nose, complimenting the slight roast malt character beautifully. The flavor is incredibly unique. Itís perfectly spiced, and the cayenne comes through quickly. The cayenne is especially present as the beer slides down the throat. In the mouth, the beer is wicked smooth, sweet, and spiced in such a way that it reminds me a little of a sweet tamarind cola. A thin sheet of soft, warm cayenne coats the tongue and roof of the mouth, and the tip and sides of the tongue actually start to feel like they were burned on the side of a skillet. I love it. Yes, itís maybe just a little too thick on the palate for a hot summer day, but itís invigorating enough that it doesnít really matter.
