Wow! Draft from the Yardhouse @ Red Rock, Las Vegas. Pours a deep dark brown with a decent lingering head. Aroma is pleasant and intriguing: bread, hay, herbs, you can smell the curry and coconut. Flavor is decently balanced and very interesting. Cayenne, curry, coconut, and lime all come through. I’ve never had a beer like it. Really, enjoyed and will definitely buy again.

Hint of Indian spices in a black pour. While I’m not usually a fan if the hot spice style this one is very tasty. It’s an excellent combination of the licorice flavours of the rich stout with the curry of the additions. Very tasty.

Draught at Antenna America. Much better than expected, I guess the coconut balances well with the rich curry spiciness, dark chocolate cereal flavors add up nicely, hints of lime, funky peppery finish. Quite enjoyed a glass but wouldn’t drink loads of it.

Bomber. Spice and more spice attacking your taste buds; curry and stout. I really want to try this with Indian food. Unique and worth trying but not sure I’d give it a second go.

Dark brown Stout that is dominated by spices especially curry. Medium heat in the aftertaste. Not a style of beer I expected from Ballast Point.

Into a tulip showing pitch black with a finger of latte colored foam. The nose shows only the spices from a typical Indian curry with a moderate intensity. (there is literally no other way to describe such) The palate shows exactly the same flavors with a big chili pepper spiciness/heat that lasts until the finish accompanied by a slight, barely noticeable coffee bitterness. Big and full bodied, drinks like a typical stout. Very interesting and very well pulled off but I honestly can’t drink this every day.

dyetube (1313) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2015
On tap at Square Burger. Pours black with a medium khaki head. The aromas are curry, black pepper, chocolate, coffee. The mouthfeel is dry and bitter with a huge curry flavor and light carbonation. Cheers!

Pours dark brown, not much of head (but my pint glass was filled to the edge). Aroma has some quite interesting curry character, full of spices. Taste is also full of different sensations, at first hey are difficult to pinpoint down but then the overarching curry becomes more apparent. Perfectly balanced, leaves somewhat sweetish feeling at first but then spiciness takes over. Very happy I tried this, will probably try it again sometime - but almost feel that one pint is enough.

Bomber at GGW 2015. Brown with a tan head. Curry and coconut. Indian buffet. Completely weird but good.

22 oz. bottle shared by Willrunforbeer. Pitch black color with fast dying head. Aroma is curry powder, cooked vegetables and hot peppers.

As a commercial brewer how do you come up with the idea to create a curry stout?? I mean you really, REALLY, need to like curry to try this. A long lingering blast of curry throughout the sip with hints of cinnamon, old coffee and rounded out with cayenne pepper.

After two sip Brian and I looked at each other and poured this down the drain, terrible. Was this a joke or for real??
