Bottle. Pours black with a medium-small, fizzy light tan head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is coconut, cumin, cayenne, lime, coriander, roast and dark chocolate malt, cinnamon, and dates. Flavor is malt and spice balanced with light tropical fermentation fruity esters (pineapple), no hops or bitterness, and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation. Wow, there is a lot going on in this beer.

Bomber poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lingering brown head. Aromas of cocoa, coconut, curry spices, cumin, cayenne and toffee. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a warming finish. Flavors of cocoa, coconut, curry, lime, cayenne and roastiness with a smooth lingering spiced finish.

Tap at BP. Dark brown pour. Loads going on in this brew! Aroma starts with lots of curry, roasted malt, coconut and some peppery notes. I get mostly curry, coconut and roast in the flavor, the finish has the peppers and a hint of the kaffir. Really a unique beer.

Bottle... This beer rocks!... Pours dark brown with a small, creamy, beige head. Good retention. This is one of the most interesting beers Iíve smelled to date - a huge kaffer lime leaf component interlaced nicely with a significant element of curry. Medium to full-bodied and lightly creamy with modest carbonation. The well-balanced flavor is pretty interesting as well - herbal, floral and crazy spicy. I canít believe this mishmash works, but it really does. Finishes very warming as the cayenne-infused liquid works its way down my throat. Big thanks to richiesd for shipping this world class experiment my way!

22oz bottle. Poured a black color with a smaller sized off white head. Yep, you can smell and taste the exotic ingredients ... curry, coconut and spicy. Light to medium pepper burn in the finish. Just not up my alley.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of arminjewell. Somewhat hazy, deep brown appearance with a with a small brown head. Spicy, lime, curry, light coconut, toasty malty aroma thatís very intriguing. Fairly peppery spicy, rich curry powder, coconut milk, vanilla, chocolate milky flavor with a bit spicy finish. Holy fuck this baby has a kick ass spiciness going on. Super unique, but jesus christ, this is fun to drink. Iíd like to get blasted on this shit!

GT2 (7899) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JAN 8, 2013
651mL from Bine&Vine. Pours deep, inky black with mahogany highlights. Quick tan head has nice formation but no retention or lace. Nose is very intense, at first it wasnít even red Indian curry dish, it was literally crowded Indian bus full of body odor, but now Iím realizing a lot of the B.O. smell in India is actually curry derived if the curry addition was able to create this intense of a nose. Hard to score this nose on a stout body, but for the spice/herb/vegetable category, the curry nose is spot on. The taste is much more tolerable and easily enjoyable- coconut, semisweet chocolate, minimal lime, but a ton of cayenne pepper heat. Not for the faint of heart- this beer has very intense flavors and is certainly unique. I thoroughly enjoyed this. Yum. The only qualm is that under all the coconut and pepper you can still get some of the normal stout character and it is a tad ashy. Still, really good.

On tap (multiple samples) and from one of the judging bottles at GABF. Pours with a pitch black hued body and a small tan head. Aromas are explosive! Huge spice notes, light lime, curry, cumin, coconut, chocolate. Really spicy and pleasant. It took me a while to pull my nose away to actually taste it. Wow, amazing flavors, huge rich spice notes, curry and cumin with light lime notes. Insanely good. Granted there is not much left of the base foreign stout, but my god is this tasty! A bit of a spicy burn with a medium thick body. Huge duration of flavors. Absolutely extraordinary beer in every sense.

Bomber from Craft Ale House. Pours turbid chestnut toward black with 1-finger tan head that splotchily laces. Nose is spicy, figgy, with cinnamon, coconut, roasty malt. Tastes rich, very coconutty up front, with a heavy cayenne peppery flavor, roasty black patent malt, curry, cumin, cinnamon, and a complex palate. There are a lot of flavors floating around in this beer, and it all works very well. One of the more unique beers I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing.

Dogbrick (7253) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Sample at Yard House Seattle. This brew pours brownish-black with a medium thin light beige head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. Curry, cinnamon and malt in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of sweet/spicy curry, toasted coconut and citrus. The finish is spicy with a dark chocolate and curry aftertaste. Above average overall.
