tap at alewife baltimore. spicy curry comes across as ancho chili peppers, coconut is clean and potent. pleasant milk chocolate backing. a bit too spicy for large doses. interesting in smaller quantities.

Bottle. Black pour with a tall, frothy brown head. Smells like Indian food with a splash of lime. Just the aroma alone has me wishing I had some curry in front of me. Taste is much like the aroma except the coconut is coming through here and the spices are a touch more pronounced. Thereís also a peppery warmth to this. The lime is there but more muddied. Body is medium with a moderate, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more curry, spices, lime, soft coconut and peppery notes. Rather unique and somehow it works.

Bottle, pours dark brown with huge fluffy tan head, little lace. Nose is huge curry and pepper. Really smells exactly like an Indian restaurant. Taste is also curry, spice, and little sweet. Finish is spicey. Body is medium and smooth. Overall, a nice and really interesting beer. Probably not something I would seek out but, definitely well done and interesting.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Ariel. Black with tan head. Curry sauce and cumin and some sweet chili in the nose, and a taste thatís all Indian food with bubblegum and lots of coconut. Full body, very hot and spicy finish. WTF?!?

DSG (6534) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Ariel. Dark brown to black with a beige head. Smells like Indian food. Roasty flavor with chocolate, Indian food and a hot finish. Medium-bodied. An interesting gimmick but not pleasant and very hard to drink.

Aroma is curry and pepper. Taste is strong spice, pepper, curry and cinnamon. Very dry and hot taste. Not my style at all. The body of the stout was fine, just to much spice.

Very interesting beer. Pours a brown color with tan head. Light to medium body. Lots of spice flavors at the front with vegetable like taste with a light chocolate after taste. Wasn't for me.

Pours a perfect mocha black with a minimal, fine, light tan head. The aroma is kinda crazy...huge curry. There's almost too much going on. I smell and taste curry, cumin, coconut, roasted coffee and touch of heat from the cayenne. Weird. Creative. Too much spice.

Interesting. Really does have a taste of Indian food. Iím not sure it works as a beer, but itís a fun deviation.

Bomber. And we have a winner here folks! This smells and tastes exactly like described. All of those excellent flavor additions are each pronounced and at the same time blended just like an incredible curry dish in India. You actually have a nice spice burn on the end of your throat at the end of each sip. The girlfriend loved it. Only reason this isnít getting a solid 4 from me is that it could be just a touch thicker to round it all out. Other than that - a total winner!
