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. Hereís how it goes with this beer. For the first second itís 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. Itís 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.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2014 Bottle from Save On. Black with fluffy tan head that dissipates quickly into ring and lace. Chocolate spiced espresso cayenne curry and woody aroma. Coffee chocolate curry spice vanilla with spicy lingering throat burn. Medium full body. My throat is burning. Reminds me why I so rarely purchase crazy flavored beers. Ultimately a $9 drain pour.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at The Monkís Kettle in SF. Pours nearly black with a one-finger light brown head. Nose is overwhelming. Definitely tastes like a Thai curry: kaffir lime, coconut, curry, cayenne, cumin. You can definitely taste all the listed flavors because this is spiced to the Nth degree. Tastes just as spicy; the stout can barely fight its way through. This was an 11 oz pour. The taste grew really tiresome after about 5 oz. Unique, for sure.

Reviewed from notes: at a large share, first time having this beer. Pours a dark oil like black with tan head. Notes of coconut, oyster, and curry on the nose; coconut and cumin on the palate, with some sweetness. Finishes with a little heat, weird, but not bad.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wow...just wow. I have never tried such a unique beer (and probably never will!). Sweet madras curry, candied banana, honey and coconut as well as some unidentifiable (to me) spice or leaf. In the mouth itís medium bodied with curry, coconut and lovely hot pepper sting on the tail. Much better than it sounds. My only problem with this is that it was slightly tough going through a whole pint as summer starts to hit here in Japan. Having said that, it was a pleasant stray from well worn paths and an unexpected delight.

On draft at The Pony Bar. A really interesting brew that tastes like an Indian snack - the most Indian tasting brew I have ever hard. Lots of hot pepper, cumin, nuts, and coriander, plus a dash of coconut.

On tap from Champps Americana in Brookfield. Dark brown pour with a bit of a head. Nose has multiple layers of spices, some chocolate and then some fruit. Taste is sweet malts, multiple spices, a nice chocolate presence, and some tangy-ness. Medium to full bodied and very interesting. Finishes tangy spicy with some bitterness and some sweetness. Quite enjoyable!
