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.

Draft - Curry powder and cinnamon with the slightest touch of chocolate. Jet black with a thin brown head. Curry, coconut, dark roast and some chilli spice. If you think chicken wing flavoured chips are cool, you will like this. I donít see the point.

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!

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!

Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours black with a chalky brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a decent amount of spice with the curry and pepper coming through supported by roasted malts and dark grains. Flavor has a good amount of cumin and curry that slightly over power the dark grains and roasted malts.

Snifter on tap at Luckyís. Black color. Good thin brown head. Holy cow! This is one of the most interesting beers Iíve ever sipped. Such a big curry spice flavor, sort of peppery, actually works very well. Much more curry spice flavors than stout, but some chocolate and roast malts in the finish. Very spicy flavor overall. Kind of a spicy, black peppery heat in the finish. Moderate bitter, not much sweet. Bigger body. Smooth, sort of crisp lighter carbonation, more dry finish. Good chewiness to the texture. Mostly loose lace, not much really sticks. Huge curry in the nose, so interesting and unusual, very unique. Dark chocolate and coffee comes out more as it warms up. Eventually, head fades entirely. Very glad for the chance to try this, so interesting, and pretty tasty.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2016 Bottle at Craigís, Eyes watering slightly from the smell. Creamy, coconut, lots of spice. Blends perfectly into Thai green curry in a bottle. Bottle at Appellation, something like the 5th time trying it now. Huge cumin, curry and kaffir nose, taste is similar, some of the coconut coming through. Quite a lingering burn.

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.
