This gets points for being unlike anything Iíve had but I donít 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 couldnít identify any other flavors. Maybe some hops. Worth a one-time try.

First sniff gave away itís 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 Iím 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. Itís almost milk chocolaty, I get cocoa, spices and burnt wood - the last in a mild way. Canít put my finger on what it is about this aroma, but I really like what Iím smelling. Tastes really good also! Almost like a mocha frappuchino just better. Itís thick and oily in the mouth while itís creamy and soft on the prickling carbonation. Milk chocolate, lots of nice rich coffee. Thereís cream and ice. A lovely spiced up creation that I can definitely dig. 11.06.2015

Rami Rami is drinking an Indra Kunindra by Ballast Point Brewing & Spirits at Czerniakowska Ufo! Mega przyprawowo-ostro-kokosowe, ale na chwile obecna cayenne psuje calosc calkiem fajna, szkoda przegiecia w tym temacie. Pali jezyk
Rami Rami: Kumin mowia ze dominanta z tych przypraw sie nazywa
Rami Rami: Mega ciekawe doswiadczenie, ale nigdy wiecej ;)

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 donít hate it, actually. This works surprisingly well and Iím 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. Thatís a first. Heavy spice flavor, with creamy body that works well with it. Very well thought out. One of the more unique beers Iíve had. Itís 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. Thereís something about this thatís a bit off, just a bit too extreme and I think itís the pepper, though it might be the curry. Iíd like this a lot more if it was balanced just a bit further.

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 doesnít 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.

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! Itís freaking cumin and curry powder and gentle spiciness in a dadgum beer. It ainít 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 didnít 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 didnít 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.
