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. allmyvinyl (10995) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle from Craigs tasting. Pours dark brown, no head. Aromas of coconut, spice, light coffee, faint lime. Taste is sweet, light heat, spice linger. McNeillR (2329) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 17, 2015
I think I was too scared to rate the original Sev brought back from her "working jolliday" nearly two years ago. Apparently they’ve a few spares. GlasgowTAD (1898) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 17, 2015
The nose is one the most ridiculously "on the nose" noses of Ratebeer nosdom. The coconut is always there, but there’s brushes of the lime leaf and then sweaty spice. It literally makes me hungry. My stomach did a wee loop-de-loop. Initial taste is...sorry back to the nose, there’s some blackcurrant notes and odd choc after the first few numbing sips. Rich, mutilated maltiness and a big roast. The spiciness, light drying nutty cumin sifting through. Lean and gritty curry buzz - spicy tang through and through. Yeeeesh. I’ve no idea how they managed to marinade this down to the hungry, active warmth going on here. I’m losing the plot here. If you find a bottle of this, slay it down - for the experience alone.
Bottle, Cornelius, Swilcan Bridge Tasting
Pours a deep brown. Aroma is coconut, cumin and pepper. Taste is curry, cumin, chilli, paprika powder a hint of cocoa. Very hot.

Tap. Pitch black pour with a nice off white head. Oak, spice, cumin, vanilla, chocolate, coffee. Smooth medium body. Spicy throughout and especially at finish. BeerRenter76 (1034) - Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Pours a jet black coloring with brown tints around the edges and no head whatsoever. Looks heavy and dense. Aromas of bittersweet baker’s chocolate enveloped in curry spices. Very interesting blending on the nose. Flavors are curry forward, with both spice and heat, followed by chocolate and coffee, both bitter and sweet, and then the beer transitions back into the spice and heat of curry. The aftertaste is bitter and warming, and the warmth lingers throughout the finish and for quite a while after, as well. The finish is slick and smooth. This is a very unique stout. worth a try especially if you like spicy food. kajser27 (2028) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 8, 2015
Black colored, small to medium tan head. Aroma is very strong curry and spicy cuisine, coconut. Taste some caramel, bit of roasted malts and chocolate, coconut but mostly just the curry and other spices, quite hot and spicy. Dry roasted finish, some heat. Medium to full bodied, moderate carbonation. Everlasting spiciness. If you want a curry beer this is your beer. Me, I’m waiting for a seafood paella flavored one ffs... BeeZales (19) - - JUL 6, 2015
On tap at brewery. Smells like an indian restaurant. Black as night, little to no head. Great mouth feel with curry tingling on the edges of the tongue. Great kick at the end. sonnycheeba (6342) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours deep, dark brown. Aroma is a pretty amazing layering of all the flavors listed especially curry, coconut, and lime along with the chocolate and roasted malt notes. Flavor is equally representative of the ingredients and provided a rush of different flavors with soft sweetness and a great lingering spice character. Medium/full body.
