Really an interesting combo. I really get a nice soft burn from the cayenne in the aftertaste and lingering on my throat. Still looking for the other flavors added but this is good. Worth going back to try again.

Bottle. Wonderful coconut and a little sweet bourbon characteristics in the aroma. Itís very dark brown in color. The taste is similar to a dark lager but is the spice aspects come through strong. On the palate it is light, short and smooth although the spice lingers a little. This is a great beer, the unique spice and aroma experience is well balanced.

Tastes and smells like a nice curry. Nice cayenne finish that stays on the palette. Definitely a sipping beer.

On tap at Davidson Beverage Company. Asian spices come through very well, nicely balanced, and a great increasing burn at the adamís apple the further you get into the pint.

Pours completely black with a light beige head in a snifter. Really interesting aroma with curry being dominant. Invokes a curiosity as to what the taste is gonna be like. Curry is really dominant in the flavor. Gives a spice to the beer and coconut follows through as well. Spicy and unique, yet not bad. One could look at these flavors and think this beer would taste awful, yet this is not the case. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Not outstanding, but above average. I wouldnít drink this beer all the time, but Iím shocked they made all these flavors a drinkable beer..and itís considerably way more than just drinkable. Unique, balanced, and tasty.

On tap. Smells of curry. Taste of slight chocolate and the curry adds good warmth to it. If this beer is to spicy for you please turn in your man card.

Beer tasting at Gravity. Nice aroma of curry and spice. Lots of curry flavors. Descent burn in the back of the throat from the cayenne. Great stout! Very unique.

22 oz bottle- Pours completely black with a huge three finger head thatís full of big bubbles and reduces leaving cobwebby lace. Aroma is strong Indian spices, it actually made me sneeze, cayenne pepper, curry, cumin and coconut are all there, wonderful aroma. The taste is strong toasted coconut, not getting much heat off the bat, cumin is there as well, very easy drinking for an export stout. Body is a bit thin and carbonation is soft. Very much enjoyed this, experimental and really tasty.

Maddest beer Iíve had. Cleverest too. The pungent curry aroma carries to the taste profile. Nice bitterness, and little heat kick at the end. This is a clever beer that is consistent from first to last, the taste and aroma are deliberate and not fleeting. As it warms you get more of the things like the coconut, but each mouthful starts with the aroma burst... Ticked that off the list, move on.

22 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium frothy tan head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is huge Indian spice, perfumey curry and lime and coconut. Very interesting.

The flavor is interesting as well - lots of curry powder, sweet lime and a little coconut and then a lot of heat from the spice (cayenne). The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a very unique and interesting beer. It actually works for me.
