BREWMUSKCLES (2192) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 9, 2013
slick and watery in body with moderate flavor of chocolate and a final hit of curry heat. Scotch peat style malt that lightly scratches yer back pipe. a bit of black pepper and parsley with ivy.

Mini cask at Craig’s. Thin black, curry spice nose, some sweet chocolate, sweet and thin, dry roast chocolate, huge curry spices. Very interesting.

Mini-cask at Craig’s, with a warning that is had been kicking about for a while, so might not taste great. In fact, it tasted just fine. There was a slight oxidised note, but otherwise it was everything I expected it to be. Dark brown pour, spicy note, big spicy taste - like drinking sweet garam masala. then a chilli heat. Not bad at all.

JohnRMurdoch (3171) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 19, 2013
330ml bottle from AleslA. Almost black colour, beige head. Toffee malt aroma. Dry treacle coffee malt flavour with a chillie kick. Hot chillie aftertaste. Just a mild stout with added chillie powder.

Beersiveknown (2734) - NORTHERN IRELAND - APR 28, 2013
Bottle at home from Alesela
Very hazy dark ruby brown with tan head. A sweet chocolate spicy cardamom nose with some marmite. Very lively on the pour with medium carbonation, citrussy cascade notes and curryheat on the tongue and at theback of the throat. Very warming. Chocolate and redcurrant in the finish. Its pretty well balanced and enjoyable.

BenH (2146) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2013
From bottle, thanks Craig. Darkest brown with little ring of head. Aroma of ginger, lime and spices. Yaste of chocolate, ginger lime and spices. Quite spicy, lingering heat. Nice

Keg from Benleva Steve - kindly donated for a Charity Curry Night in May 2012. Unfortunately it doesn’t do it for me but I do appreciate it as a worthwhile experiment. A favourite of my good friend Andy Mo.

From a growler, courtesy Craig. I know this had been around for a while so maybe wasn’t in optimal condition but it seemed in quite reasonable nick to me. Plenty of life left. I know this beer was not to everyone’s taste but I suspect that would have been the case fresh from cask. I’m not always a big fan of spiced beers but I thought this was a very palatable and rather interesting take. The spice is noticeable but didn’t swamp everything else. All in all pretty well balanced and enjoyable.
