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.

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.

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.

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.
