Indra Kunindra is a bizarre beer and a remarkable achievement. Foreign Stouts have a history in India. Once upon a time, some clever Brits brewed stronger versions of Stouts (in order to withstand the months at sea) and shipped them to various parts of the world. The resulting new style became especially well-liked in India. Knowing that, I get the concept of incorporating distinctly Indian spices into a Foreign Stout, but from a tasting perspective, it sounds completely insane. It looks like your average Stout but you can see flecks floating around. That’s the first clue as to how heavily-spiced it is. You can taste and smell everything that’s been thrown in: curry, cayenne, cumin, coconut, and kaffir lime leaf. It tastes like some of the best coconut curry you’ve ever had, and it’s a black beer. Any traces of hops or booze have been totally obliterated by all the tasty spice. There’s heat here, but it’s not from booze. That burn is coming from the huge doses of cayenne, cumin, and curry. It’s hard to imagine this being done any better than it is. HuskerTan (2337) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - NOV 6, 2016
A- Cumin, curry, coconut.
A- Black color, dark liquid, beige head.
T- Cumin, curry, coconut, lime, cayenne.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, slightly spicy finish.
O- Wow. This was curry in a cup. I have never tasted a beer that tasted like something else quite like this. Hell, this was more curry like than some curry I’ve had. You can see all the spices floating in the glass. Definitely not something I want to drink a lot of, but I can really appreciate it. Unique as hell and does exactly what it means to do. Coconut curry at it’s finest. Hoponmate (309) - NEW ZEALAND - OCT 29, 2016
Like coconut? Like curry? Bask in the glory of a cumin covered stout that shouldn’t work but somehow does.
Share it with your friends and show them how far beer has come. explosivedog (1506) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 29, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2016 650ml bottle. Aroma is nothing but curry, and all a bit much. Taste is so much better. Coconut, curry, spice, a little lime and then a chocolate stout underneath. Insane. And really nice. Suttree (6484) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 24, 2016
Can a beer be a trainwreck, but also kinda good? This was odd, to say the least. I got some traditional chocolatey stout flavors, but the cayenne, curry, and coconut were evident, as well. Didn’t really pick the lime. I doubt I could drink more than one at a sitting, but I liked this...

Dark red color. Thick, bubbley tan head that collapses into a medium collar. Smell fire roasted tomato. Smell cayenne. It smells spicey. Thin body. Tad bit spicey. It taste like Indian food. The aroma is way to overpowering when you take a drink. It affects the taste of the beer. The finish lingers in the mouth. I like this beer but wish the aroma was toned down.

Tallahassee, Fl - on tap at Growler Country. Deep, dark black pour, thick khaki colored head, nice lacing. Aroma of olives, peppers. Flavor has a nice roasted presence to it, nice pepper burn, some olives, a touch of bittersweet baking chocolate. Nice thick, rich mouthfeel. MarcoDL (5299) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2016
Draft at Ballast Point. Black pour. Smells like a curry dish, really wird, with some pine and herbs as well, bit like a Tandoori. Taste has lots of spicey curry herbs ass well, with some malt, lots of tandoori and a hotness that starts burning heavier and heavier. Really unique, never had anything like this before. Nice. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 14, 2016
Tap at Thrash Zone. Spicy, curry powder, thats about it. Seems wrong but I quite like it. Little burn at the end. Some sweet roastiness, bit of milky caramel. Definitely interesting but might struggle with a pint.
