This beer is the color you see when your eyes are closed...darkness with a tint of lifeblood. I imagine the concept of this brew began behind closed eyes, too, with a bewitching and singular dream...The aroma reads like a recipe...first some coconut followed by toasted cumin, curry powder, and cayenne. And the taste is pure Indian cuisine...a wash of curried spice and lime with alcohol as an unexpected vehicle. It is truly a surprising flavor for a beer. The cayenne remains as a slow burn on your lips. I'm a bit thrown by this one...very unique, but I like it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tallahassee, Fl - on tap at Growler Country. Deep, dark black pour, thick khaki colored head, nice lacing. Aroma of olives, peppers. Flavor has a nice roasted presence to it, nice pepper burn, some olives, a touch of bittersweet baking chocolate. Nice thick, rich mouthfeel.

MarcoDL (4149) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2016
Draft at Ballast Point. Black pour. Smells like a curry dish, really wird, with some pine and herbs as well, bit like a Tandoori. Taste has lots of spicey curry herbs ass well, with some malt, lots of tandoori and a hotness that starts burning heavier and heavier. Really unique, never had anything like this before. Nice.

shoulderbroken (3755) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 14, 2016
Tap at Thrash Zone. Spicy, curry powder, thats about it. Seems wrong but I quite like it. Little burn at the end. Some sweet roastiness, bit of milky caramel. Definitely interesting but might struggle with a pint.

eaglefan538 (3027) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Poured a porter brown with an ok head and decent lacing all the way down. Aromas and flavors of curry, coconut, and Ceyenne. Nice zing on the lips and the lime came out in the flavors as it warmed too. Mouthfeel was warming and moderate in body. Rated for what it tried to be, overall score given based on a blend of the experience and whether I would want another one. A bit too much in the latter category, although an interesting one time experience.

UncleKorm (1223) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle poured a clear dark brown hue w/ large creamy tan head. Bold cumin and curry aromas. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a bold heat and light bitter finish. Tastes are toast, madras curry, cayenne pepper, cumin, toasted coconut, and kaffir lime leaf. Medium bodied and heavily spiced, leaves a lasting cayenne burning sensation on the lips and throat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

glennmastrange (2667) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle. Moderate dark chocolate for the malt, light resin for the hops, dough for the yeast, with maple syrup, and lots of curry with the cumin really standing out. Head is small, frothy, light beige, with a spot or two of lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is dark brown. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, a bit syrupy, with a soft to lively carbonation and about a three star worth of heat. While drinking this Spice Beer you tend to forget itís a beer and begin to drift off to your favorite Indian restaurant...unless you hate Indian cuisine. Then you recoil in disgust over the sickening presence of all that curry spice.

Draft. Strong curry, chocolate malt, and light hay aroma. Dark brown with moderate head. Mildly sweet chocolate malt, and strong curry/cayenne flavor. Nice body. Delivers on the spices.

jflopsu (1198) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2016
Pours black with thick light brown head. A strong curry and Indian spice aroma. A surprising taste of curry and spices with chocolate, malt and coffee. A lingering curry spice aftertaste.

Bomber poured into a pint glass. Aroma is curry with pepper at first. Gets more complex with every sip. Definitely not an all the time beer, but I appreciate the uniqueness.
