3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Damn what an interesting beer or at least a novel beer. I have wanted to try this for a while and I so wanted to share this with the beer geeks back in KS but checked baggage costs are so high. Either way, pours like a regular stout and good god all mighty the nose hits you like an Indian rock. Damnnnnnn, someone get me a mango lassi to go along with this beer. Its strong and I like Indian food but I do not loooooveeee Indian food, so its a bit of a conundrum. Flavor is better, more subdued, get some stout and strong but not hella (as the kids say) strong curry. Heat, the heat between me and this beer. its not the pepper ale type heat, its a small but constant heat that comes in waves and burns the top of your intestines, I love it. Cool beer. Bottle is filter clean after the last pour. This one is with you in mind Eric.

Strange but well done. Definitely tastes like chai or something along those lines. Light caramel and roast. Pours black with good head and lacing. Spicy. Tap at blind tiger.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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. There’s 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 that’s all Indian food with bubblegum and lots of coconut. Full body, very hot and spicy finish. WTF?!?

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
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. I’m not sure it works as a beer, but it’s a fun deviation.
