Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Ariel. Black with tan head. Curry sauce and cumin and some sweet chili in the nose, and a taste thats all Indian food with bubblegum and lots of coconut. Full body, very hot and spicy finish. WTF?!?

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Ariel. Dark brown to black with a beige head. Smells like Indian food. Roasty flavor with chocolate, Indian food and a hot finish. Medium-bodied. An interesting gimmick but not pleasant and very hard to drink.

Aroma is curry and pepper. Taste is strong spice, pepper, curry and cinnamon. Very dry and hot taste. Not my style at all. The body of the stout was fine, just to much spice.

Very interesting beer. Pours a brown color with tan head. Light to medium body. Lots of spice flavors at the front with vegetable like taste with a light chocolate after taste. Wasn't for me.

Pours a perfect mocha black with a minimal, fine, light tan head. The aroma is kinda crazy...huge curry. There's almost too much going on. I smell and taste curry, cumin, coconut, roasted coffee and touch of heat from the cayenne. Weird. Creative. Too much spice.

Interesting. Really does have a taste of Indian food. Im not sure it works as a beer, but its a fun deviation.

Bomber. And we have a winner here folks! This smells and tastes exactly like described. All of those excellent flavor additions are each pronounced and at the same time blended just like an incredible curry dish in India. You actually have a nice spice burn on the end of your throat at the end of each sip. The girlfriend loved it. Only reason this isnt getting a solid 4 from me is that it could be just a touch thicker to round it all out. Other than that - a total winner!

Bomber from Pringles. Appearance: finger rust red head that lasts, good lacing, dark brown, opaque. Aroma: coconut, roast, vanilla, curry, other fruitiness. Palate: oily, soft carbonation, full body. Taste: sweet malty chocolate and coconut into curry sweet with coconut and lime sweetness lasting, but then curry and pepper heat rises and lingers, overriding everything else. Overall, too much spice for me, very complex, very unique.

Bottle. Dark brown with a medium-sized head. Instant curry and cumin aroma impression tucked behind what otherwise seems like pleasant malt (chocolate fudge / cake, mild roast / char). Fiery spiciness from approach to finish, basically tasting like straight curry and cayenne powder. Medium-full body is beefy and savory, lightly sweet with relatively strong bitterness. Its a ridiculous recipe, even one of these flavorings would be bad on its own, but together its laughably undrinkable. The coconut and lime are not apparent at all, instead the cayenne and curry seem to dominate. Yeah, its a an experiment, but no, it does not taste good. This was purchased by mistake, and I should have paid more attention to the label. Its a well made beer though the flavorings mask any possible underlying problems. The body and the sense I get of the malt shows promise. No doubt a version without any of the flavorings would be much more enjoyable.
