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.

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 youíve ever cooked a Penang curry, youíll know what a frontal assault from these ingredients is like. Itís 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.

I think I was too scared to rate the original Sev brought back from her "working jolliday" nearly two years ago. Apparently theyíve a few spares.
The nose is one the most ridiculously "on the nose" noses of Ratebeer nosdom. The coconut is always there, but thereís 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, thereís 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. Iíve no idea how they managed to marinade this down to the hungry, active warmth going on here. Iím losing the plot here. If you find a bottle of this, slay it down - for the experience alone.

Pours a jet black coloring with brown tints around the edges and no head whatsoever. Looks heavy and dense. Aromas of bittersweet bakerís chocolate enveloped in curry spices. Very interesting blending on the nose. Flavors are curry forward, with both spice and heat, followed by chocolate and coffee, both bitter and sweet, and then the beer transitions back into the spice and heat of curry. The aftertaste is bitter and warming, and the warmth lingers throughout the finish and for quite a while after, as well. The finish is slick and smooth. This is a very unique stout. worth a try especially if you like spicy food.

kajser27 (340) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 8, 2015
Black colored, small to medium tan head. Aroma is very strong curry and spicy cuisine, coconut. Taste some caramel, bit of roasted malts and chocolate, coconut but mostly just the curry and other spices, quite hot and spicy. Dry roasted finish, some heat. Medium to full bodied, moderate carbonation. Everlasting spiciness. If you want a curry beer this is your beer. Me, Iím waiting for a seafood paella flavored one ffs...
