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.

On tap at Ballast Point Tasting Room. Pours very dark brown. Smells like an Indian grocery store. But also some sweetness and maltiness. Wow. Flavor is off the wall. Coconut. Some spicy chills. Curry paste. Crazy. Finishes very dry with a good amount of burn on the back of the throat. Crazy stuff!!!

I really enjoyed this. The aroma is somewhat mild, but dominated by notes of earthy, spicy smoke. The flavor is similar, blends very well with the malts and adds a solid spicy kick. Not quite hot to my taste but may be a lot if you’re more on the wimpy end of the spice scale. This would be great, and was... on cool fall day.
