3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wow, this is a really unusual beer. The cumin and curry jump out in the aroma along with some chocolate. The cayenne pepper heat hits immediately and lasts for a long time along with the spices. The coconut finally comes out to complete the curry flavor. All of these stand out clearly on their own but they blend together in an interesting and tasty way. If there are hops in here, theyíre covered by all the other flavors. The body is dark brown with a ruby color under light and a light tan head that disappears quickly. Finishes with hot spice and chocolate. The heat may be a bit much, but it probably goes great with spicy foods. This is definitely not for everyone, but itís a well made, unique beer.

Pours a nearly black and opaque with a dark khaki head. Banana, cocoa, coconut, and some unfamiliar spice on the nose. Mouthfeel is thick, chewy, and smooth. Coconut, cardamom, ginger, and clove. My goodness, this is so magnificent and unique. I took one of these home.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours Black from a 22oz bottle, with no lasting head. Cumin nose with many unknown aromas. The cumin flavors jump out with lots of other tastes. The pepper burn and many more more senstions last into the finish. Overall this is too, much. Doesnít work for me.

Bomber from the home brew mart. Pours dark black with ample brown sugar foam. Aroma is sweet cinnamon and cayenne spice, with a touch of something like chai. Initial taste is all spicy, followed by cocoa, chai, pepper, curry, and cayenne. This brew is mind-blowingly complex. Truly a work of artistry. Finish has lote of pepper and heat. Really a great, unique beer. Top shelf, all the way. Only possible knock is a slightly thin body, but that is more than made up for by the rest of the brew.

Bottle to pint glass
Cumin, toasted malt, cinnamon, cayenne, nutmeg, lime.
Deep black with no head
Lots of cumin, malt and bread.
Very interesting experience and interesting drink, but as a beer I think itís too over the top curry.

Tap. Dark brown pour. Aroma is a ton of coconut. Taste is coconut and curry. Aftertaste is spicy cayenne pepper. This beer would make a good marinade.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: lots of spices, curry and pepper dominate, with notes of cumin coming through as well. Roast malts and some coffee emerge from behind the spices as well, also some caramel and sweet dark sugar notes.
Appearance: pours black with a tan head, retention is average.
Taste: the spices and heat really take center stage for me - lots of curry and cumin. Layers of chocolate and malt sweetness help bring some balance to the beer, though this is definitely skewed towards the non-traditional ingredients. Though the spices are heavy-hitting, I still found myself rather enjoying this beer. Finish is peppery heat and a bit of chocolate, alcohol is well hidden.
Palate: medium-full body, medium carbonation.
Overall: really interesting, thereís almost too much going on, but somehow it seems to work.

Draft. Dark with minimal head. Hard to get much aroma past the cigars of this place. Slight spicey. Taste is a flavor explosion. Vanilla, cinnamon, subtle spiciness in the finish. Wow. Spiciness continues to grow. By the end if the glass I likely won't be happy but this is damn good. Definitely spicey as I finished.

This gets points for being unlike anything Iíve had but I donít think this worked overall. The curry is what stays with you throughout. It had BO smell with some other spices and roasted malts. Black in color with a brown fizzy head. This had a dry palate to me. Tastes of curry and sawdust. Other than the roasted malts and cayenne I couldnít identify any other flavors. Maybe some hops. Worth a one-time try.
