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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours black with a very thin tan head. Aroma of cumin, roasted malt, roasted pepper, sweet lime, chocolate. It smells like a spice cabinet. Flavor of lots of spices and some heat up front - cumin, cayenne pepper, curry - followed by roasted malt, chocolate notes, and licorice. The coconut is probably least prominent. The spices are definitely powerful but the underlying malt notes are still present. Overall a great and very complex beer and great for those who love their spicy stouts.

Taste like Indian food. Curry is the overwhelming presence. Has some heat from the pepper. Not a bad beer. Just not a sunny day at the beach beer. Be careful with your pairing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an oily black into the glass, with a diminishing tan ring of suds that leaves spotty lacing. The nose is sweet, containing the "4 Cís": Chocolate, Curry, Cumin and Coconut. Flavors are roasted upfront, with a nice chocolate-coconut essence mingling with cumin to provide a sweeter mid-palate, then finishing with the spicy kick of cayenne and curry, as well as hints of black pepper. This really hits all points on the flavor spectrum, a robust offering indeed. One of the most complex brews Iíve ever had. Full-bodied, and I absolutely LOVE the spicy heat provided in the back of the esophagus... just gorgeous on the palate. Silky smooth, active, warming, spicy, roasted, semi-sweet and ultimately complex. Delicious!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours black with a chalky brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a decent amount of spice with the curry and pepper coming through supported by roasted malts and dark grains. Flavor has a good amount of cumin and curry that slightly over power the dark grains and roasted malts.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wow - one of the most unique brews I have ever tasted! The beer poured dark and unclear on tap with a big creamy head. The aroma was sweet and delicious, unique candy like sweetness from the lime leaf and maybe the curry somehow?! The flavor starts off like a roasted stout or brown ale, nice, but then immediately the curry and pepper hits the palate with the coconut and kumin in the background. The kaffir limes help balance the whole thing out as was done in the aroma. I really learned to like this beer with its complexity as the glass went down. The aroma was thoroughly enjoyed for sure.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle pours pitch black with thin tan head. No subtlety about the ingredients in this. Roast, curry, coconut, and pepper hit you up front. Moderately bitter and sweet. Medium bodied. Trailing peppery bitterness. The curry really tanks this beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. I had seen this and passed on it many times before finally picking this one up. apparently, itís not for me. I got a hell of a lot of cough syrup/medicine flavors along with the curry, cayenne, and other spices. I honestly found it very difficult to drink and poured out over 90% of the bottle. Oh well, obviously my experience is fairly singular and I know BP to be a reputable brewery so Iíll just mark this down as a wash.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark brown with beige head and lacing. Aroma of strong coconut, I mean strong, cumin, curry, almost like a Indian. I love this beer, can't believe it but I do. It tastes just like it smells with some pepper burn at the end. This is well brewed!

NYC Trip Beer #5. This brew has the most original flavor of anything I have ever tried. It is a curry and coconut explosion. It pours pitch black with a tan head. It left my throat burning. In a good way. I would love to bring this beer to a tasting with some other beer afficianados just to hear their thoughts. Wish I had found some to bring home. Draft - Pony Bar - New York, NY
