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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
20121215 750ml from Canalís in Marlton, NJ. This one inspired me to log in for a rare online rate. Darkest cola brown with fleeting beige head then sort of flat and dull looking. Macaroon aroma with mild peat and light milk chocolate. Body is soft, creamy, coating, sticky. Flavor is spot on for the description: a nice coconut curry with slight hints of lime and a mild peppery burn. Love this beer, and at seven percent I could drink a mess of it. Wait, itís curry flavored so it should be a nice hangover cure, too, right? Excellent stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Moderate dark chocolate for the malt, light resin for the hops, dough for the yeast, with maple syrup, and lots of curry with the cumin really standing out. Head is small, frothy, light beige, with a spot or two of lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is dark brown. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, a bit syrupy, with a soft to lively carbonation and about a three star worth of heat. While drinking this Spice Beer you tend to forget itís a beer and begin to drift off to your favorite Indian restaurant...unless you hate Indian cuisine. Then you recoil in disgust over the sickening presence of all that curry spice.

<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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Holiday.pours dark and stouty with a frothy full covering of dense tan bubbles. Smells medicinal, like cough drops, then you get the curry with some seemingly capsicum tingle in the nostril, then the dry herbalness of the kaffir leaf. So, yeah, you can detect each of those in the nose...does it combine well for a beer aroma? No 100% convinced. Flavors seem to mend together more than the nose did, you can taste the cayene, the madras, and the lime leaf, especially in the finish where it seems to really take hold and linger...add to this the almost powdery cocoa flavor of the malts...what you get, is...well, interesting I guess...but beers with a shit ton of spices always have a weird medicinal character to them and this beer is no different, at least at first..except I think Iím really digging the cayenne influence...and as a indian food cooker, its interesting to see these ingrediants coming together in a beer...and it could even pair well with similar food, but its still a bit medicinal, but this has already started to subside through the first pour. It is spicy too..not only with the indian spices, but the chile does give it a nice solid heat. Weíll have to see how I feel after the whole bottle.
