This gets points for being unlike anything Ive had but I dont think this worked overall. The curry is what stays with you throughout. It had BO smell with some other spices and roasted malts. Black in color with a brown fizzy head. This had a dry palate to me. Tastes of curry and sawdust. Other than the roasted malts and cayenne I couldnt identify any other flavors. Maybe some hops. Worth a one-time try.

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. Thats a first. Heavy spice flavor, with creamy body that works well with it. Very well thought out. One of the more unique beers Ive had. Its 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. Theres something about this thats a bit off, just a bit too extreme and I think its the pepper, though it might be the curry. Id like this a lot more if it was balanced just a bit further.

Scipio (946) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2017
Pours black with a medium tan head that quickly fades. The aroma is potent and intense. Its very strong in curry and pepper, along with heavy coconut, mild lime, and hints of chocolate. The taste is very dry with is a little sweet. There is an easy, mild burn to this one that doesnt seem to end. Big curry and pepper still, and I find lots of lime now. Some lesser roasted malts, spices, coconut, ad chocolate. Minimal curry aftertaste. Its medium in body, with a slick texture, and some softer carbonation. Two reasons to try this one. First, its very different. Second, its absolutely delicious.

onceblind (8687) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2017
Dark brown hue with a light ivory cap. Weird combination of aromas that pops with curry and cumin powder with coconut and roasted black malt. Weird flavor as well with dark semisweet malt, coconut milk, cumin, curry powder spiciness, and just...weird, man! Its freaking cumin and curry powder and gentle spiciness in a dadgum beer. It aint right.

Tap at the Hair of the Dog, Phrom Phong Ballast Point tap takeover. 7%. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin off white head. The aroma is super dry and spice with the liqourice notes of the cumin shining through, along with the peppers. The flavour is liqourice bitter with a dry roasty, spicy liqourice bitter palate. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. I didnt really know what to expect of this beer but I must say I enjoyed it and would buy it again. I think the recipe needs a little work though. The cumin really dominates all the way through and I didnt get the kaffir lime at all. It needs something else to make it a little more mellow and bring that cumin liqourice back under control.

On a flight at the Ballast Point place in Temecula, California on 9th Feb 2017. Dark brown liquid curry sauce with a malty base. Different, interesting and a 4oz pour is enough.

650ml bottle @ Matts. Pours an opaque black colour with a thin tan head. Careful on the nose, it packs a punch. Huge amounts of cumin, pepper, lime, and currey just outright assault the senses. Flavour is crazy. Curry and cumin dance around the palate while pepper is rather dominating finally lending way to a pleasant coconut character. This is just weird, different parts of my mouth are tasting different things simultaneously. Perhaps the pepper needs to be dialed down a touch and this would be better.

Oakes (16655) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 8, 2017
Medium brown and hazy. Not much head. Well, getting the curry powder and cumin, assertively, on the nose. On the palate, thats intense, but the coconut takes centre stage. The cayenne pepper gets to the back of the tongue, the lime leaf has a cameo and theres still an underpinning of cumin, and turmeric. I honestly cannot believe how balanced those spices are. And theres a nice cocoa malt character and just the right amount of bitterness, too. I have no idea how they got this so well-balanced.

22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out lots of cumin and curry upfront in full force -- not getting anything else. Flavour is along the same lines, with tons of coconut, curry and cumin dominating. Truly bizarre. For something this strange, it works rather well. Cool experiment.
