22 oz bomber with a 15048 date code. Pours pitch black with a surprisingly good, fluffy tan head. Wow. Never had a beer like this one before. Very spiced but not so overwhelming that I still feel like I’m drinking beer. The curry and the cumin are very apparent on the nose. Flavor is like a very balanced Indian dish. A bit of heat from the spice. Subtle and tasty. Don’t know if I want to drink this whole bomber by myself, but I made this decision and have to stick with it. Very good. beertholomeus (1813) - California, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Pours black with a fizzy tan head. Curry, coconut, pepper, spice and malt aroma. Chocolate, pepper, coconut, curry, lime, spice and roasted malt flavors. Medium full body and moderate carbonation. Pepper, chocolate and coconut finish. obguthr (6454) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Pronounced aroma of pencil shavings, light curry accents. Mahogany, medium beige head. Curry is more noticeable on the palate. Charred oak and pencil shavings are dominant however. Medium body, moderate carboantion. Many of the spices listed on the label, of which I’m familiar, are not detected in the beer. I don’t think that’s a bad thing as I’m not sure they would enhance it very much. The curry is a nice touch and makes for a unique experience. BeerBunker (965) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2015
22oz bottle. Pours black with a foamy brown head. Aroma is of roasted malt, pepper, vanilla, and caramel. Smells amazing. Taste starts off with a lot of pepper. Tons of pepper. After a few sips, the taste is of toasty malt, coconut, and vanilla. Long lingering, harsh pepper taste. Very dry overall. Lighter than I expected, but not too thin. Different, but in a good way. Not a novelty at all. williamstome (1902) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 17, 2015

ENG: 650ml bottle shared at a beer meeting, poured into the tulip. Opaque black color with dark-beige head. Aromas of spices: cayenne pepper, curry, some roastiness. Tastes also with spices, this cayenne pepper is very strong here which also stays longer and settle on the throat. Very spicy aftertaste! Medium to full bodied, medium carbonation. Overall not really my taste, but was nice to try something different.Berard (639) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 10, 2015
PL: Butelka 650ml dzielona z innymi osobami podczas piwnego spotkania, przelana do kieliszka. Czarna, nieprzezroczysta barwa z ciemno-beżową pianą. Aromaty głównie przypraw: pieprzu cayenne i curry, nieco paloności. W smaku również głównie przyprawy, wspomniany pieprz cayenne również tu jest mocno odczuwalny, pozostaje wręcz na gardle na długo. Bardzo ostry posmak! Średnie do wysokiego odczucie w ustach, średnie nasycenie. Podsumowując zupełnie nie moje klimaty, ale fajnie było spróbować czegoś odmiennego.
Draft. Pours black with tall thin creme colored head. Mild chocolate coffee aroma over light carbonation. Taste of coconut, and peppers over very mild coffee flavor. Very different and tasty.

Large sample pour, darker with a light khaki head. Nose is loads of coconut and curry, some roast, but mostly Indian connotations. Flavors follow with much more noticeable spice. It’s not terrible and it’s different, but it’s not a top ten for me.. asceticbrewer (69) - Arizona, USA - MAR 4, 2015
22oz bottled on July 1, 2013. Poured into BP tulip. Pours a deep brown with a chocolate colored head. Aroma is cumin, curry powder, toasted coconut, and a slight coffee roastyness. Taste is chocolaty, coconut, with a slightly herbal spiciness. As it warms up, lime bitterness egins to become more present. Mouthfeel is smooth, and very porter-esque
