Draught at Stags Head NYC. Crazy beer to say the least but very interesting. Pours opaque black with a beige head. Smells like curry and coconut. Tastes like kafir lime, curry, burnt coffee and hot peppers. there is a definite burn on the lips while drinking this. Intresting beer but it works.

Bomber into a pint glass. Pours a dark brown with a medium khaki head. Minimal lacing. Nose is chili and curry spice, and the taste follows the nose. Very different, and very good.

From a bomber. I do not like this beer at all. Maybe it's the curry? Maybe the cumin? It's like drinking Indian chili. Barf. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bloody hell, why did I attempt to drink this by myself? Inky black with nil head. A definite spicy nose to the effect that the beer metaphirically headbutts you in the face with its cumin, coriander, coconut and lime leaf. If you’ve ever cooked a Penang curry, you’ll know what a frontal assault from these ingredients is like. It’s also fucking brilliant. The flavour is similarly heady with much more Cayenne than expected. It blasts the palate. This will be the last beer this evening, not because of the abv, but because of the sheer wall of flavour. Wow.

22 ounce bottle shared (thankfully). The beer is a darker brown color with a khaik colored head of foam. The aroma has predominantly curry spice, but after a little while I start to pick up some coconut and some chocolate. Sort of complex in that way, but you have to wade through the curry for some time to get there. Taste is a spicy curry with some coconut sweetness peaking through at times. Bigger bodied beer and medium carbonation. Not something I would want again, but might consider buying to cook with it.

Coconut and kaffir on the nose. Really smells like a curry. Some chocolate and toast on the nose as well. The flavors work well together, but it is a novelty. Some chili.

Bottle from Craigs tasting. Pours dark brown, no head. Aromas of coconut, spice, light coffee, faint lime. Taste is sweet, light heat, spice linger.

I think I was too scared to rate the original Sev brought back from her "working jolliday" nearly two years ago. Apparently they’ve a few spares.
The nose is one the most ridiculously "on the nose" noses of Ratebeer nosdom. The coconut is always there, but there’s brushes of the lime leaf and then sweaty spice. It literally makes me hungry. My stomach did a wee loop-de-loop. Initial taste is...sorry back to the nose, there’s some blackcurrant notes and odd choc after the first few numbing sips. Rich, mutilated maltiness and a big roast. The spiciness, light drying nutty cumin sifting through. Lean and gritty curry buzz - spicy tang through and through. Yeeeesh. I’ve no idea how they managed to marinade this down to the hungry, active warmth going on here. I’m losing the plot here. If you find a bottle of this, slay it down - for the experience alone.

Aromas of milk chocolate, toasted coconut, subtle cardboard. Brown-black with a mostly lasting beige head. Mostly dry, chocolatey, prominent cooked coconut flavor. Full bodied.

Tap. Pitch black pour with a nice off white head. Oak, spice, cumin, vanilla, chocolate, coffee. Smooth medium body. Spicy throughout and especially at finish.
