Draft at the Old Grove Brewery. Pours almost clear copper with a fizzy beige head and lots of lacing. Tastes like dry pine, booze, caramel, and spicy hops. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like alcohol, caramel, and nutty pine hops. kaser (6312) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2014

On tap at Ballast Point Tasting Room. Pours very dark brown. Smells like an Indian grocery store. But also some sweetness and maltiness. Wow. Flavor is off the wall. Coconut. Some spicy chills. Curry paste. Crazy. Finishes very dry with a good amount of burn on the back of the throat. Crazy stuff!!!

I bought this one because someone--Beastie?--insisted that it was actually quite a decent beer and that the unusual approach really works in this case. I can see how people could have that opinion, but I’m afraid I’m not among them. The problem, for me, is that the curry and cumin is absolutely overbearing in the aroma. If I don’t inhale and simply drink, it’s actually pretty nice. The cayenne is just right, giving it a spicy nip without being the least bit unpleasant, the toasted coconut is not strong but is very nice, the kaffir leaf slips in there, the stout base is tasty, gently sweet, and refreshingly NOT about 10% ABV. Quite close to a hit, for me, just not entirely there. But I’ve got to give it some credit. Upon opening and initially smelling it, I thought I’d dump the whole bottle and open something else. But now I’m half way through and may just keep going.
How: Draught.Hermod (7899) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2014
Where: The Bishops Arms Gamla Stan, Stockholm.
Appearance: Black colour with a tan head.
Aroma: Spices, Indian spices, more spices, something else that might just be spices in disguise.
Body: Medium body and carbonation.
Flavour: Spices, curry, something that might be chocolate and malt, more spices.
Comment: Nice first sip, second is still decent, by the third the spices take over. Just a sip is enough, too much spices and unbalanced for it to be possible to drink a lot of it.
Tap @ bishops arms, gamla stan, Stockholm. Near black, brown head. Wow, this is spicy stuff. Curry, lemon, cinnamon, you name it. Like Jookos said, walking into an a Indian spice shop. Inviting aroma. Flavor has got the same spices as well. Curry. Nice nice nice. Balanced. Maybe not something I would drink a pint of but a small glass is just great.
