Dark brown pour. Small light tan head. No lacing. Fruity aroma with notes of flowers and malt. Taste is sweet orange up front with pepper spraying you in the back. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

650 ml. Pours chocolate with a head that mostly sizzles away. Nose is chocolate, cumin, espresso, pepper, coconut and cinnamon. Taste is vanilla, chocolate toffee, some coconut, and lots of cumin and pepper. Maybe some other spices that get mostly lost in the cumin and pepper. Medium body is too fizzy, but has a nice balance of the malty sweetness, roast and spices.

Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small beige head that disappeared quickly. The aroma has big curry and cumin spices and a hint ofchocolate. The flavor has the cumin and curry from the nose with a nice peppery burn. Some roasted notes although I am not getting the coconut. Light lime citrus late. Interesting brew for sure, though I can see some people not liking this.

Bottle. Pitch black pour with a white head. Smells like Tai curry. Earthy roasted malts, nuts, and spices. Wild and wacky...

Bottle... Poured dark, near black with a light brown head. Aroma was like window cleaner or disinfectant. Taste wise the spices seemed to work better with heavy coconut tones, roasted malt, black pepper spice, and hints of yellow curry. I’m not a huge fan of curry but this worked in the flavor profile.

This is a strange beer. Im glad I got to try it but it is very strange. Aroma is coconut curry to the extreme with notes of lime citrus. Taste is more of the same. Really has very few "beer" flavors as all I tend to get is coconut curry and lime on aroma and taste. Worth a try if you love indian food.

On tap at Meridian Pint. Pours an oily, opaque black with some thing, beige head. WHOA. Smells like Hawaiian Tropic sun tan oil, coconut, salty air, thai basil, lime, perfume, ginger, spice. Flavor is crazy, it starts like sweet coconut milk, then you get some bitterness and some spice, then the finish is cayenne pepper heat. My mouth tingled long after I was done. A palate wrecker, but very unique. I wouldn’t order it again, but it was worth the try.

On draught at The Monk’s Kettle in SF. Pours nearly black with a one-finger light brown head. Nose is overwhelming. Definitely tastes like a Thai curry: kaffir lime, coconut, curry, cayenne, cumin. You can definitely taste all the listed flavors because this is spiced to the Nth degree. Tastes just as spicy; the stout can barely fight its way through. This was an 11 oz pour. The taste grew really tiresome after about 5 oz. Unique, for sure.

Pours black with a quickly dissipating tan head. Aromas of curry, cumin, a little chocolate. Taste is strong curry, cayenne, and cumin. Decent malty backbone that’s rich and slightly sweet. Finish is sweet with a lingering spicy warmth. Seems a little overly aggressive in spice but overall a very enjoyable experience.
