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.

Poured from a 22.Smells like a chili spice beer. Flavor is somewhat sweeter at first but gives a slight burn in the back of the throat going down. Definitely has the curry flavor with a slight coconut flavor. I wonder how this would pair with a Thai Curry dish Pretty much a one off beer for me, but not bad.

Pours black. Head dissipates to nothing...hence the low appearance rating. Aroma of roasty toasty coconut, banana, bread, chocolate, carrot cake, cream, and fresh-baked goodness. Taste is roasty, coconut, chocolate, and buttered bread. Finish is a slow burn of cayenne pepper and curry. So freaking good!! Mouthfeel is light. Wish it were a little heavier. Honestly would have rated this a 4.5+ but no head...looks like a soda.

I really wanted some rice or a garlic naan when I was drinking this. Very spicy, tastly spicy beer. Full of cumin, curry, pepper. I could barely taste the stout, the spice was so overwhelming but it was satisfying. Taste is lots of spice, very spicy, curry, a little bit of stout.

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.

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 from HWC). Pours dark brown with thin khaki head. Has a nice garnet hue to it as well. After having just come out of the fridge, the first thing to hit the senses is the curry and sweet coconut. The taste is semi-sweet with lots of savory notes and roast. There is also some vegetal bitterness that Iím guessing is from the lime leaf and cayenne. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Finish is warming from the alcohol and cayenne. The cayenne burn is quite nice unless you are a wuss that doesnít eat spicy food. The beer has loads of flavors going on, but they arenít as overpowering as I thought they might be. This is not the spice profile that my wife (who is Indian) cooks with since she blends her own masala. Otherwise, this might be the perfect exotic beer. Really cool 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.

Draft at Beer Revolution. Full pour so thereís no head. Dark black body. First flavors are of fresh commute and mild curry. Moves into a bitterness on the back end. Would love to have this with Indian or Thai food. Too bad thereís no aroma to speak of.
