Spices rule! Curry and cayenne stand out for me. Dark brown color. A really unique brew! IndianaRed (4546) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 22, 2015
On Tap at Bitter Creek, Boise Black with dense lasting tan head. Peppery dark roast aromas and flavors. Quite a decent sizzle on the trailer. Mild blend of roastiness and coconut. Th cayenne and cumin hit you at the end. very interesting. Radek Kliber (7320) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 20, 2015
Where and how: on tap at Birch CanIHave4Beers (4184) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Aroma: strong, even bold with plenty of Indian spice, yellow curry etc.
Top: small, tanned white cap.
Base: hazy brown
Palate : medium bodied.
Taste: frontal milk coconut followed by yellow curry spread on brown malt canvass. Not overly aggressive as I feared.
other notes quiet interesting.

Pours basically black with a small but well retained head and not much lacing on the glass.
The aroma is cardamom, cumin, cinnamon, chocolate & coffee. Itís also got a bunch of other curry spice elements I canít single out. Suffice to say it sort of smells like some sort of interesting curried mocha, neat.
The flavor is really pretty curry heavy, but it retains the nice roastiness and bitter-espresso-like flavors that make it very stout like. Itís not especially sweet for what it is, but itís nowhere near being very dry. The beer seems to have quite a vanilla flavor going on along with cinnamon, cumin, and again the sort of load of spices that one might use in a curry, most of which Iím only vaguely familiar with (shame on my palate)
I just never expected such an oddity to come from a brewery Iíve always sort of associated with straightforward hoppy beers... guess I was in the dark, huh?
Bottle at home. Black colour with beige head. Strong espresso flavour, some Worcestershire sauce, a dash of soy sauce. Medium body. Interestingly complex. culchiem (3929) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 7, 2015

Draught at Ballast Point Old Grove, California. Black beer with a nice beige head. Roasted aroma, curry, chocolate, cumin, lime juice, some pepper. Spicy curry flavor, pepper, hay, some grass, roasted, floral notes. Too many spices in here to be good. Tstamba (775) - Maryland, USA - NOV 4, 2015
Taster. Dark black with tan head. Amazing aroma of curry and coconut. Flavors are complex, malt, coffee, caramel with curry and a little heat at the finish... Great flavors... Would love to cook with this beer... ( chili, curry or stew) ElCapitan22 (361) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Pours a jet black color with some lacing but minimal head retention. Has an aroma of coconut and curry straight away. There is no mistaking what this is. Tastes like a punch of coconut curry right in the face. Has a spicy afterbite that is pleasant and not overwhelming. I love this!
