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.

I’m not picking up all the intricacies of the caynne pepper, cumin, toasted coconut, and kaffir lime leaf, but the curry is definitely front and center.

Big bottle, big thanks Carl! Near black with tan head. Aroma very peculiar, curry, ginger, cardamom and various spice. Taste is similar, very spice driven, some chilies, roasted malt and bread. Unique beer

Serving: 22 oz. bottle. It pours dark brown with a thick and resliliant tan head. The nose smells like a mix of roasted malt and coconut curry. The flavor highlights the curry from start to finish. Light bits of coconut, a roasted malt, lactose sweetness, and a very light spicy warmness. Medium to full body with a lingering curry finish. Interesting and well brewed, but not one I want more than a half a pint of.

From notes. Tasted on 6/30/12 at the 1st Annual Chimipalooza, from bottle. Pours clear dark amber brown with an average beige head that leaves a thin collar. The nose is lime, cardamom, and coconut with just a bit of traditional caramel malt, really smells a lot like a Thai curry dish. The flavor is has a bit of sweet molasses up front, moving to the coconut and curry with a nice cardamom bitter note and some chili pepper spice on the back. The body is full with average carbonation and a long spicy coconut finish. Very unique and well-executed beer.

Bomber. Aroma is tikka masala with notes of curry, cumin, cayenne and some coconut. Pours black with a thin light brown head and some lacing. Starts with light roasted flavor and the tikka masala with the curry, cumin and coconut. Finishes smooth but brings the cayenne heat that builds with every sip. Very unique and good, I'm glad that I split the bottle between 3 people because a whole bottle solo would be difficult.
