Bomber from the home brew mart. Pours dark black with ample brown sugar foam. Aroma is sweet cinnamon and cayenne spice, with a touch of something like chai. Initial taste is all spicy, followed by cocoa, chai, pepper, curry, and cayenne. This brew is mind-blowingly complex. Truly a work of artistry. Finish has lote of pepper and heat. Really a great, unique beer. Top shelf, all the way. Only possible knock is a slightly thin body, but that is more than made up for by the rest of the brew.

This is an experience. Pours velvet black minimal head, aroma of coconut, line roast stout. taste is aroma with a HUGE heat curry back end that literally burns your esophgas in the best way. Palate is thick and hot. overall this is a great winter beer too bad I had it at better weather fest where it was 110 in a sweaty wharehouse.

Bomber pours black with a tan head. Aromas of cyanne curry some cumin grassy hops chocolate nib and some cocoa and coffee. Flavor is very layered bitter and spicy lots of cyanne up front. Body is full and finish leaves spicy pepper behind

Bottle. Black with little ring of head. The aroma is spectacular, more along the lines of a thai or malasian curry than indian, a perfect balance of spices, nasi goreng, lemon grass, lime, ginger and the coconut ties the whole thing together. Taste of lemon grass, lime and coconut, slightly roasty. Seems ever so slightly thin and quite spicy, cuts the back of the throat. Very well executed and completely unique

Awesome!!! This brew is something way out of the spectrum of beers for me, I have never tasted a beer so original distinct and totally creative. In this beer there is so much going on my taste buds are going crazy. I will make this clear “You must like Indian spices". This brew is dark root beer brown with no head or foam once poured. Looking at the bottom of my glass yellow sediment gathered at the base, looks like gold dust. The nose is amazing notes of pepper, black cardamom, red pepper, cumin, Indian bay leaf, cinnamon, cloves, Ginger. The Flavor of India in a glass truly amazing.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2014 had it on tap at Ballast Point on India St. last Saturday. A complex brew. The smell can be off putting to some, but I found it pleasant. Fresh pencil shavings. The curry is distinct, cummin present and cayenne gives a slight burn. It may not the best for the Firestone 805 crowd. But a sophisticated beer drinker can appreciate. Ballast showed creativity with the fusion, while still making a very good beer.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2014 a polarizer at the fest. i had two people blow it up (this after we bought a bottle) but we loved it when we got to try it. The mix of curry, coconut, cumin, cayenne and stout is unique, delicious, and a total treat. Not something I’d put down multiple pints of, but one? You bet. 2013 - better and better every time." yeah...now that I’m used to this, I’d not only put down a pint, I crave it!

Tap at Happy Gnome. Black with a thin tan head. Coconut, lime, curry, chili paste and graham crackers. Sweet coconut that morphs into curry momentarily before a nice lingering peppery burn. Body is heavier with a creamy, fizzy feel. Awesome execution of curry in a beer, seems like you should side of naan.

4/22/2015 (draught at Marty’s Hops & Vines in Cincinnati, Ohio): What’s this? A CURRY beer?! Hell yeah! This beer is absolutely fantastic. Aroma is mostly curry with a bit of coconut as well. The flavor is very dynamic and changes from drink to drink and as the temperature of the beer goes up. Lots of curry at first and it stays throughout, but the coconut and lime definitely show more on subsequent tastes and when warmer. The cayenne adds a bit of heat that builds, but doesn’t go over the top. Everything about this beer is right on point! I LOVE IT! I have a bottle of it that I’m looking forward to trying as well. Amazing beer!

I think I was too scared to rate the original Sev brought back from her "working jolliday" nearly two years ago. Apparently they’ve a few spares.
The nose is one the most ridiculously "on the nose" noses of Ratebeer nosdom. The coconut is always there, but there’s brushes of the lime leaf and then sweaty spice. It literally makes me hungry. My stomach did a wee loop-de-loop. Initial taste is...sorry back to the nose, there’s some blackcurrant notes and odd choc after the first few numbing sips. Rich, mutilated maltiness and a big roast. The spiciness, light drying nutty cumin sifting through. Lean and gritty curry buzz - spicy tang through and through. Yeeeesh. I’ve no idea how they managed to marinade this down to the hungry, active warmth going on here. I’m losing the plot here. If you find a bottle of this, slay it down - for the experience alone.
