On draft at The Pony Bar. A really interesting brew that tastes like an Indian snack - the most Indian tasting brew I have ever hard. Lots of hot pepper, cumin, nuts, and coriander, plus a dash of coconut.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - NOV 17, 2012
22oz bottle. Rating #133. Dark brown, very dense, not much light shining through. Big spice notes throughout this beer, curry was a big part of it, but it didn’t take over the beer. Very tasty overall, everyone that tried was trying figure out where there was a good Indian restaurant close by. (2558)

Dark pour with ample head. Heavy spice that is long and strong in my throat. A sipper for sure.

Bottle. Pours opaque black with a small brown head that slowly dissipates with some lacing. Aroma is quite pleasant sweet chocolate, coconut, roasted malts, and a touch of chili pepper. Flavor is about the same, medium sweet and a bit of citric bitterness. Chili peppers come through in the finish where they add a bit of burn. Medium body, silky mouthfeel. Not sure I would want a whole bomber of this, but it is certainly interesting.

651mL from Bine&Vine. Pours deep, inky black with mahogany highlights. Quick tan head has nice formation but no retention or lace. Nose is very intense, at first it wasn’t even red Indian curry dish, it was literally crowded Indian bus full of body odor, but now I’m realizing a lot of the B.O. smell in India is actually curry derived if the curry addition was able to create this intense of a nose. Hard to score this nose on a stout body, but for the spice/herb/vegetable category, the curry nose is spot on. The taste is much more tolerable and easily enjoyable- coconut, semisweet chocolate, minimal lime, but a ton of cayenne pepper heat. Not for the faint of heart- this beer has very intense flavors and is certainly unique. I thoroughly enjoyed this. Yum. The only qualm is that under all the coconut and pepper you can still get some of the normal stout character and it is a tad ashy. Still, really good.

Damn what an interesting beer or at least a novel beer. I have wanted to try this for a while and I so wanted to share this with the beer geeks back in KS but checked baggage costs are so high. Either way, pours like a regular stout and good god all mighty the nose hits you like an Indian rock. Damnnnnnn, someone get me a mango lassi to go along with this beer. Its strong and I like Indian food but I do not loooooveeee Indian food, so its a bit of a conundrum. Flavor is better, more subdued, get some stout and strong but not hella (as the kids say) strong curry. Heat, the heat between me and this beer. its not the pepper ale type heat, its a small but constant heat that comes in waves and burns the top of your intestines, I love it. Cool beer. Bottle is filter clean after the last pour. This one is with you in mind Eric.

65 cl bottle @ olio, enjoy by 01/02/2013
Aroma is rather intensive with spices – feels exactly like an indian shop or restaurant. Curry chicken and nothing else. Flavour has curry chicken and finishes with slightly burning chili and cayenne. Quite unique, looks like a stout but no signs of roastiness whatsoever. A liquid version of Indian curry chicken. Really slow beer, probably would take a two-hour Bollywood movie to finish the whole bottle.

Good lord what a crazy brew. I ordered not knowing what it was. It took me awhile before I figured out it was curry and the all I could think of was this Thai Green Curry dish I always order for take out. In fact if I get drunk and then by mistake spill whatever stout im drinking into my food and then instead of discarding slurp up juices then that is this beer. really interesting and fun, slick finish with heat hitting hard in after taste.

Aroma: lots of spices, curry and pepper dominate, with notes of cumin coming through as well. Roast malts and some coffee emerge from behind the spices as well, also some caramel and sweet dark sugar notes. Appearance: pours black with a tan head, retention is average. Taste: the spices and heat really take center stage for me - lots of curry and cumin. Layers of chocolate and malt sweetness help bring some balance to the beer, though this is definitely skewed towards the non-traditional ingredients. Though the spices are heavy-hitting, I still found myself rather enjoying this beer. Finish is peppery heat and a bit of chocolate, alcohol is well hidden. Palate: medium-full body, medium carbonation. Overall: really interesting, there’s almost too much going on, but somehow it seems to work.
