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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!... Pours dark brown with a small, creamy, beige head. Good retention. This is one of the most interesting beers I’ve 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 can’t 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!

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 that’s 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. I’d like to get blasted on this shit!

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.
