Bottle. This beer smells like a delicious curry with some roasted malts thrown into the mix. You have to be in the mood for it - but this is a great beer.

Big time coffee, chocolate, ginger and a bit of other spice. Taste is similar, but has a big scratchy burn that is a bit tough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bloody hell, why did I attempt to drink this by myself? Inky black with nil head. A definite spicy nose to the effect that the beer metaphirically headbutts you in the face with its cumin, coriander, coconut and lime leaf. If youíve ever cooked a Penang curry, youíll know what a frontal assault from these ingredients is like. Itís also fucking brilliant. The flavour is similarly heady with much more Cayenne than expected. It blasts the palate. This will be the last beer this evening, not because of the abv, but because of the sheer wall of flavour. Wow.

22 oz bomber with a 15048 date code. Pours pitch black with a surprisingly good, fluffy tan head. Wow. Never had a beer like this one before. Very spiced but not so overwhelming that I still feel like Iím drinking beer. The curry and the cumin are very apparent on the nose. Flavor is like a very balanced Indian dish. A bit of heat from the spice. Subtle and tasty. Donít know if I want to drink this whole bomber by myself, but I made this decision and have to stick with it. Very good.

Pours an oily black into the glass, with a diminishing tan ring of suds that leaves spotty lacing. The nose is sweet, containing the "4 Cís": Chocolate, Curry, Cumin and Coconut. Flavors are roasted upfront, with a nice chocolate-coconut essence mingling with cumin to provide a sweeter mid-palate, then finishing with the spicy kick of cayenne and curry, as well as hints of black pepper. This really hits all points on the flavor spectrum, a robust offering indeed. One of the most complex brews Iíve ever had. Full-bodied, and I absolutely LOVE the spicy heat provided in the back of the esophagus... just gorgeous on the palate. Silky smooth, active, warming, spicy, roasted, semi-sweet and ultimately complex. Delicious!

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

Aroma of coconut, cinnamon, clove, cayenne pepper and dark chocolate. Pours black with no head. Taste is roast coffee, coconut, cinnamon and finishes with a tingly pepper. A little overboard on the spices but tasty.

On tap at pony bar with James. This beer is phenomenal! Super unique... Roasty lactic stout, pine, hot curry cooled by those mint crumbs you see at Indian restaurants near the host counter. Love it.

Rating from two days ago up the river. Bomber. Aroma consists of the exotic spices mentioned in the description with coconut the strongest, followed by cumin, curry and cayenne; not getting the lime. It also has the expected stout roastiness and a wet river rock character. Pours dark brown to black with a medium tan head with good retention. Flavor is like biting into a scrumptious Indian dish with all aroma descriptors firmly in place. Starts sweet and earthy before turning bitter, lightly tart (Kaffir lime?) and finishing with a moderate burn from the cayenne and some bitterness. Mouthfeel is creamy, finely carbonated, medium to full body. I love a nice experimental brew and this one succeeds. Very tasty.

The curry and red pepper really stand out on this one. Slightly spivey and roasted malt finish. Smells like curry and pours black with a thick tan head. Had out of a bomber at home. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
