Smells like an Indian restaurant. Butter cinnamon sweet potato.very spicy flavor, tastes gross. Like too much seasoning on a steak.

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.

Bottle. Very strange beer. Pours black with khaki head. Nose is heavy on coconut and kaffir. Taste incorporates a ton of curry as well. Obviously reminiscent of Indian food. More interesting than good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

22 oz bottle- Pours completely black with a huge three finger head that’s full of big bubbles and reduces leaving cobwebby lace. Aroma is strong Indian spices, it actually made me sneeze, cayenne pepper, curry, cumin and coconut are all there, wonderful aroma. The taste is strong toasted coconut, not getting much heat off the bat, cumin is there as well, very easy drinking for an export stout. Body is a bit thin and carbonation is soft. Very much enjoyed this, experimental and really 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.

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.

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.
