I love Indian food and export stouts, but this concoction was disgusting...

Bottle. Pours pitch black with a quickly fading brown head. Aroma of spice, ginger, peppers, cayenne. Taste is of chocolate, coffee, curry, peppers. Like the idea of this but tough to finish the bottle. Oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

Dégustée chez Pierre Clermont. Cheers! Noire et peu mousseuse, la bière laisse échapper de puissants arômes d’épices indiennes. Ras el hanout, cumin, noix de coco, cardamome et curry... Cette bière doit être accompagnée d’un morceau de pain. Bouche pimentée complètement brûlante, de la coriandre, toutes les épices mentionnés ci-haut.... J’ai mal à tout mon corps.

Poured from a tap. Dark brown color, medium tan head. Sweet coconut aroma. Medium body with a full coconut and curry flavor and a mild spice finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber into a pint glass. Pours a dark brown with a medium khaki head. Minimal lacing. Nose is chili and curry spice, and the taste follows the nose. Very different, and very good.

From a bomber. I do not like this beer at all. Maybe it's the curry? Maybe the cumin? It's like drinking Indian chili. Barf. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bloody hell, why did I attempt to drink this by myself? Inky black with nil head. A definite spicy nose to the effect that the beer metaphirically headbutts you in the face with its cumin, coriander, coconut and lime leaf. If you’ve ever cooked a Penang curry, you’ll know what a frontal assault from these ingredients is like. It’s also fucking brilliant. The flavour is similarly heady with much more Cayenne than expected. It blasts the palate. This will be the last beer this evening, not because of the abv, but because of the sheer wall of flavour. Wow.

22 ounce bottle shared (thankfully). The beer is a darker brown color with a khaik colored head of foam. The aroma has predominantly curry spice, but after a little while I start to pick up some coconut and some chocolate. Sort of complex in that way, but you have to wade through the curry for some time to get there. Taste is a spicy curry with some coconut sweetness peaking through at times. Bigger bodied beer and medium carbonation. Not something I would want again, but might consider buying to cook with it.

Coconut and kaffir on the nose. Really smells like a curry. Some chocolate and toast on the nose as well. The flavors work well together, but it is a novelty. Some chili.

Bottle from Craigs tasting. Pours dark brown, no head. Aromas of coconut, spice, light coffee, faint lime. Taste is sweet, light heat, spice linger.
