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.

5/27/16. Bomber. Pours black w a sticky 2 finger mocha head. Nose has hints of curry spice and prunes. Heat hits you almost immediately and stays w you. Interesting. Not my everyday stout but can't say I've ever had something like this.

Draft at Ballast Point Little Italy. Darkest brown with a small tan head. Aroma is Indian food as f, so curry it should be named Steph and awarded the NBA MVP award (sorry Labronda Kunondra). Madras, and itís mad ras. RAS TRENT - JAAAAHHHH!!! Sorry for the obscure Lonely Island reference. Flavor is mildly sweet, hella/grippa spice depending whether youíre from Nor or SoCal. Coconut, Steph Curry, cumin so much I want to cum-in it. But then it wouldnít taste so good. Medium bodied, prickly feel. Damn it feels good to be a ticker sometimes.

Aroma is complex Indian spices and Jasmin/cumin. The flavor is complex Indian spices, dark malts, fruit and a mix of acidity and spicy heat in the finish.

Bottle at Appellation Wines tasting. Dark brown body with a faint beige head. Aroma of coriander, bay leaf, charcoal and green pepper. Flavour is very spicy - notes of lemongrass, chillies and coconut. Thin to medium body with a soft fizz. A touch too spicy for me, but itís a really interesting beer.

So Iím having curry for dinner and figured my aperitif would be this Curry Stout because, why not?
Deep only black pour with a beige head. With the smell of curry wafting around my kitchen from the beer Iím mostly picking up stout character in the aroma: savory umami, cinnamon, nutmeg, a chocolate like spice I canít pin down. Truly the action curry is making this smell surprisingly sweet.
The taste is sweet spicy chocolate with a big dollop of chilli pepper heat but still a sweet cardamom finish. With a Japanese curry this baby shines.
A weird ass beer but fun. That sweetness I was getting was Chocolat covered coconut like those "mound" chocolates.

Bottle at Comely Bankers III. Well, this is an interesting beer. Pours murky brown. Nose is the most delicious curry - the curry with coriander, chili etc spices, then lime, coconut, it is quite stunning. Taste has the same components, curry, all the chili and pepper, then come the coconut and lime again, and then kick of the chili. I donít know what to think of this one - it is not a beer Iwould like to sip on Sat evening but still it is good and absolutely well made. Definitely worth tasting.

Bottle thanks to Stuu666.
Appearance - opaque black with a lovely fawn head.
Nose - like a South Indian curry.
Taste - tonnes of fenugreek, kaffir lime and coriander seed. A chilli kick at the end but all on balance.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy and spicy palate.
Overall - really very interesting.

Bottled shared at Stone in Asagaya. Thanks Masa! Huge coconut forward nose with red curry notes and an overall Thai curry like spice accompaniment. Super light on the palate, almost water-like. Lots of curry spices especially cumin. Hides the abv immaculately and that coconut rolls through the palate and into the finish. Cayenne burn on the finish. However a bit much, seriously.

Bottle sharing @ Budapest. // Super interesting from first sip to last. Really well balanced between sweetness of dark malts and array of spices. Definitely sweet up front with some nice heat/curry at the end to temper it. Oily in the mouth. Pretty serious brew overall. Great.
