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!
