Pour from the tap at the brewery in Old Grove. Pitch black in appearance with a thin tan head. Scents of dark chocolate and cumin . Nice medium smooth bodied beer. Initial flavor is of moderately subdued indian spice of curry, cumin, and lime. Next up is the dark cocoa, molasses, and roasted malt. On the back end the cayenne pepper makes it self known in moderation. Good lengthy finish. Really enjoyed this beer.

22oz bottle, courtesy of Mario from Brewed for Thought. Thanks, dude! Pours a dark, cola-brown color; creamy, fine-bubbled medium-tan head; excellent lacing. Lots of coconut, dark cocoa, and curry-like spicing in the aroma; very strange, but well-executed and a kickass melding of Indian spices and a cocoa-focused stout. Medium-full body; fluffy, pillowy carbonation; spicy Indian curry powder mixed with coconut and a cocoa/chocolaty core; this is pretty weird, and pretty delicious. Innovative, with the spices and coconut perfectly matched. Yum. Lingering finish: spicy curry, creamy coconut, toasty cocoa.

Pour out of bottle, thanks to Doodler for the pour! Dark brownish black pour with a nice tan head, aroma is one of the weirdest Iíve ever smelled, big notes of curry spice, coriander, tandoori chicken, hints of spicy fruit, some lime, coconut milk notes in there, wow this is crazy. Taste is curry, spicy ginger, hints of vanilla, coconut in there, hints of green pepper, touch of cayenne in there, touch of cream like sweetness, some lime in there as well. Some slight heat in there, but complemented super well, with a nice balance. Reminds me of very good Indian food. Wow, definitely one of the more interesting beers Iíve ever had.

viscous black, with strong aroma of pepper and curry. And almost a chocolatey chili aroma character as well. Super interesting flavor, some chocolate with chilis and pepper. And some tones of the curry as well. Almost a finishing spicyness.

On tap at bitter creek. Pours out black topped with a tan head. Nose is all curry fruit spice and some malt. Taste is as the nose with lots of spice curry and chillies. This was fun a really good curry beer.

Bomber. Nearly black with ruby edges. A few floaties. Aroma is coconut curry, heavy on the cumin. Tastes are similar. Starts sweet and transitions to some heat at the end. Very interesting beer if you are in to these flavors, as I am.

Bottle. This beer smells like a delicious curry with some roasted malts thrown into the mix. You have to be in the mood for it - but this is a great beer.

22 ounce bottle. Served in a Great Lakes Brewing goblet, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch tan head that fizzled away pretty quickly. There isnít much lacing at all. The brew smells mostly like cumin, curry, and cayenne, along with a bit of coconut. The spices overpower pretty much everything else thatís in the aroma. The spices are strong in the flavor of this beer too, but I can also taste some lime, chocolate, and vanilla. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís coating and smooth with a low/moderate amount of carbonation. I liked this brew, too bad I only bought one bomber because if I had another one Iíd probably drink it now! Recommended if you like spicier food/beer. $9.35 a bomber.

22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 4/21/2014. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 2 finger fairly dense tan head with decent retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, toast, roasted malt, vanilla, coconut, cumin, cinnamon, clove, peppercorn, cardamom, cayenne, lime, herbal, and toast/herbal earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and the wide variety of spices; with good strength. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, toast, roasted malt, vanilla, coconut, cumin, cinnamon, clove, peppercorn, cardamom, cayenne, lime, herbal, and toast/herbal earthiness. Moderate earthy spices and heat on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, toast, vanilla, coconut, cumin, cinnamon, clove, peppercorn, cardamom, cayenne, lime, herbal, and toast/herbal earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and big spice flavors; with a nice malt/spice balance with no cloying flavors after the finish and a moderate amount of lingering heat. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth and fairly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol was well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish other than the heat from the spices. Overall this was a very nice spiced stout. All around good complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and spice flavors; and quite smooth to sip on despite the moderate heat. A very enjoyable offering.

Dark pour with a big tan head featuring bubbles of different sizes, looking somewhat like pancake batter freshly poured on a hot griddle. Curry aroma hits the nose even before lifting the glass. Cumin and cayenne are also well represented, along with roasted coffee. Very unusual and very tasty.
