This is an experience. Pours velvet black minimal head, aroma of coconut, line roast stout. taste is aroma with a HUGE heat curry back end that literally burns your esophgas in the best way. Palate is thick and hot. overall this is a great winter beer too bad I had it at better weather fest where it was 110 in a sweaty wharehouse.

black color; curry spices dominate the aroma - lots of curry and cumin; curry and cumin dominate the flavor as well, set against a roasted malt base with a nice amount of cayenne heat; just hints of coconut and lime; leaves a nice amount of heat and curry in the finish; a really interesting beer - all of the flavors of a nice Indian meal - takes a bit of getting used to, but I quite enjoyed it

Black pour, looked a bit thin, half inch velvety cocoa brown head. Curry cumin and coconut foremost in aroma, cayenne too but less so, ferrous cola stout too. Soft carbonation, mouthfeel a bit frothy and spicy, finish leaves mouth numb. Flavors match everything in nose with cumin and coconut being primary. Really good unique stout, could use a bit thicker body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

65 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark brown with an off-white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are cumin, curry, and roasted malt - with a spicy finish.

First sniff gave away it’s Indian pedigree. Taste brings in more of the stout characteristics. Chocolate on the back end, curry up front. Savory notes and heat slowly rise up. Complex flavors. Sipper for sure.

On tap @ Rattle N Hum. Quite a deep dark one this, not the best light environment where I’m at now, but this looks pretty close to black ruby. It also has a nice big lasting and quite lacing brown head. Smells really good I have to say. It’s almost milk chocolaty, I get cocoa, spices and burnt wood - the last in a mild way. Can’t put my finger on what it is about this aroma, but I really like what I’m smelling. Tastes really good also! Almost like a mocha frappuchino just better. It’s thick and oily in the mouth while it’s creamy and soft on the prickling carbonation. Milk chocolate, lots of nice rich coffee. There’s cream and ice. A lovely spiced up creation that I can definitely dig. 11.06.2015

9/24/16. On tap at Growler Country. Dark brown pour with a small khaki head. Wow, Indian spice all over the aroma - promise delivered. Same on the flavor, loads of Indian spice... I don’t hate it, actually. This works surprisingly well and I’m surprised. Not bad.

You MUST love curry to enjoy this beer. The aroma is aggressively curry. Lingering heat from the cayenne pepper. The only thing that balances the beer are the chocolate malts.

Bottle. Poured black with small off white head and good lacing. Totally smells of turmeric and Indian spice. That’s a first. Heavy spice flavor, with creamy body that works well with it. Very well thought out. One of the more unique beers I’ve had. It’s good that they are experimenting with different flavors. Good stuff .

I think this is an idea with promise, but the flavors need to be a bit more balanced. Pours a deep, cola black, with minimal head. Curry is strong in the aroma. Flavors include curry and cayenne pepper--maybe just a bit too much pepper. There’s something about this that’s a bit off, just a bit too extreme and I think it’s the pepper, though it might be the curry. I’d like this a lot more if it was balanced just a bit further.
