3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
<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.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

3.7 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 I’m 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. We’ll have to see how I feel after the whole bottle.

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.

Draft at the beer authority NYC. Don't know why the waitress warned me. This is flavorful and sweet with coconut and cinnamon. Great

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle shared by ebone1988 to signal the true end of Dumpster Box No. 2. We managed to survive some hot garbage. The pour is a lighter black color with a thicker tan colored ring of head and no lace to be found. The aroma is... Well, curry and cumin. There isn't a damn thing else that you can detect other than the spices. Damnit. This should be pretty interesting. Well, there is a lot of spice happening here. The lime is a little detectable on the finish. The curry and cumin dominate. This tastes like the finish of my Pad Thai Curry dish when I eat Thai food. Good flavor, but horrible for a beer. Jesus. The mouth feel is thinner and light with a general lack of carbonation and a lingeringly spicy finish. There is a lack of anything useful and it's all spice. Damnit Eric.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

Draught at Antenna America. Much better than expected, I guess the coconut balances well with the rich curry spiciness, dark chocolate cereal flavors add up nicely, hints of lime, funky peppery finish. Quite enjoyed a glass but wouldn’t drink loads of it.
