Good lord what a crazy brew. I ordered not knowing what it was. It took me awhile before I figured out it was curry and the all I could think of was this Thai Green Curry dish I always order for take out. In fact if I get drunk and then by mistake spill whatever stout im drinking into my food and then instead of discarding slurp up juices then that is this beer. really interesting and fun, slick finish with heat hitting hard in after taste.

Tap at Happy Gnome. Black with a thin tan head. Coconut, lime, curry, chili paste and graham crackers. Sweet coconut that morphs into curry momentarily before a nice lingering peppery burn. Body is heavier with a creamy, fizzy feel. Awesome execution of curry in a beer, seems like you should side of naan.

On tap at Ballast Point. Pours a very dark brown colour, almost black, with a nice tan head. Aroma is really interesting with the curry, cumin, and cayenne spice scents standing out; it’s also got a nice sweet coconut aroma too. Taste is mildly sweet throughout, a little spicy with a a slight dry bitterness as well. Medium body, flatter carbonation, and creamier on the palate. Overall a really cool stout that turns out well.

HonkeyBra (3654) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2015
22 oz. bottle. Pours a blackish brown with a medium tan head. Aroma of indian food. Curry. Meat and cumin notes. Mild pepper and lime. Flavor is meaty, umami, with cumin and cayenne notes. Some roast, some dark malt notes. Interesting. Lingering heat in the finish.

Far too sweet for me to have very often, but I mostly enjoyed this bottle. It pours a dark chocolate brown with a thin, spotty head. The aroma is warm, sweet, and spicy. I definitely pick up on the pepper and cumin, and some of the toasted coconut. The flavor is sweet up front, with caramel and fig notes, and then a ton of spice hits mid tongue. On the exhale there is a lot of cayenne pepper, walnuts, and mild chocolate.

Had to pour it out. Way to much spices. I could smell it the second I opened it. Not buying again.

Prufrockstar (1365) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 25, 2015
Bottle thanks to Eric. Deep brown pour, khaki head. Aroma makes me think spicy chai tea. Taste brings chocolate, molasses (pretty sweet this one), chai, and a nice zippy back of the throat pepper heat. Medium+ body, good carbonation. Fun.

Dark brown. No head. Aroma features easy to identify curry, cumin, and cayenne. Flavor adds chocolate and a little licorice to the spices along with a hint of roast. Coconut and lime finds its way through in the finish, which provides a pleasant cayenne heat as well. Superb balance of all the different elements, all of which can be picked out individually but at the same time all flow seamlessly. Interesting sipper. Superbly Well made.

I get hints of chocolate, black licorice, and curry. A little spicy aftertaste. Good in smal sips and small quantities. Smells like cirry, cumin, cayenne.

Pours black. Head dissipates to nothing...hence the low appearance rating. Aroma of roasty toasty coconut, banana, bread, chocolate, carrot cake, cream, and fresh-baked goodness. Taste is roasty, coconut, chocolate, and buttered bread. Finish is a slow burn of cayenne pepper and curry. So freaking good!! Mouthfeel is light. Wish it were a little heavier. Honestly would have rated this a 4.5+ but no head...looks like a soda.

22 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown almost black with a dark tan head that dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing. The smell is sweet coconut and spices with a definite cayenne scent and nose tingle. The taste is sweet chocolate upfront with the cumin and curry spice. Then comes the cayenne flavor and heat mixed with hints of lime and coconut. Low carbonation and creaminess lead to lingering heat on the palate. Interesting and good. Would like a little better balance of the creamy coconut. Not sure the lime fits best. Kinda like drinking an Indian dinner.
