4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2015 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.

<Batch 1, 9%
From notes. Tasted on 6/30/12 at the 1st Annual Chimipalooza, from bottle. Pours clear dark amber brown with an average beige head that leaves a thin collar. The nose is lime, cardamom, and coconut with just a bit of traditional caramel malt, really smells a lot like a Thai curry dish. The flavor is has a bit of sweet molasses up front, moving to the coconut and curry with a nice cardamom bitter note and some chili pepper spice on the back. The body is full with average carbonation and a long spicy coconut finish. Very unique and well-executed beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black pour, small tan head, minimal lace/retention. Aroma is complex with notes of chocolate, various spices (read - curry and pepper, *not* coriander etc) light roast, caramel. Medium bodied, pretty good balance of spicy heat. Straightforward malt structure lacks some complexity but it’s fairly well balanced with the spicing. Anything more would probably lean towards unpleasant unless it was a bigger and/or more complex beer.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Deep brown body with a fizzy, beige head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of chocolate, spices, cumin, coconut, lime, pepper. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. The finish is peppery hot. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Here’s how it goes with this beer. For the first second it’s in your mouth, you get a wash of flavors that work really well together: chocolate, curry coconut, roasted malts, spice. Then, bam, the cayenne pepper washes away all of that, its heat lingering long into the finish. The server said the difference in this pepper beer was that you could drink a lot of it. I disagree. I was tired of it three-quarters of the way through. It’s unique, for sure. I was prepared after the first few ounces to give it a big rating. But I changed my mind as I walked away from it after 5 ounces to order a different beer.
