High 5 to the creator of this brew. I havenít rated a beer in over 4 months and this one brought me out of retirement. Crafted really well. Super complex with all kinds of interesting flavors. I really enjoyed this and look forward to sharing this with a few of my craft beer friends. Itís a first of itís kind and I agree itís a bit much like previous raters have said. But that doesnít make it uninjoyable. It has itís place. Right now that place is in a couple of bottles marked for special friends who appreciate wierd "out there" creations. This qualifies. And congrats to the crafter.

taster at brewery. Looks almost black. Tan tiny head. Smells good and stouty with a bit of dirty vanilla. Tastes a typical stout at first as dark and slightly creamy then the flavors explode across the palate with dark vanilla and caramel then some hot flavors from the cayenne and curry. A complex special beer. Overall 7.5 of 10.

Bottle from a cool guy that worked at Ballast Point. This beer is very interesting. Its unlike anything g Iíve had before. So many different tastes coming together. Lots of lime in the aroma. The spices really come in the after taste. It was good but interesting, not something I could drink alot.

Bottle at Musa, Aberdeen. It pours opaque black, with a thin bubbly tan head. The nose is fresh coconut, chilli pepper, lots of spice (especially cumin), permanent marker pen and roasted malt. The taste is roasted malt, tar, chilli pepper, coconut, bitter chocolate, cumin, tar, lots of spice, citrus pith and caramel, with a big bitter finish and lingering chilli pepper warmth. Full body, moderate carbonation and surprisingly well balanced. Interesting stuff, but I couldnít drink a lot of it.

Pours thin black with a thin white head. Noe is a bit odd with walnut, allspice, and coffee. Assaults the mouth the notes of toffee, black licorice,. Bold cumin blast to finish it off. Wild tastes.

Draft at pony bar with Andrew. Pours a deep black body with thin brown lacing. Aroma is curry, Indian food, oats, sweet vanilla. Mouthfeel is syrupy with notes of curry, coconut, chocolate and vanilla; however dominated by chili peppers. A truly unique brew.

Tap. Pours a pitch black color with a tan head. Aroma is of roasted malt chocolate, curry, kafir lime and lots of spice. The flavor again is filled with curry notes, with the kafir lime, spice, some chocolate and roasted malt, dark fruits and some subtle coffee. The body is medium with a creamy mouth feel. Overall a really interesting and different brew, I like it!

11 aug 2002, tap at the brewery. Dark brown, almost black. Wow, nose is awesome! Curry and coconut. Thin body and faintly fizzy. Flavors flip back and forth between curry and toasted coconut. Some dark chocolate becomes prominent after you get over the unique flavored. Pretty fun. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
