Aroma is coconut, cumin, and lime. Taste is more coconut and cayenne pepper with a hint of lime in the finish. More effervescent and thin than anticipated. An odd conglomeration of flavors but it delivers on the advertised indian flavor. Worth a taste.

22oz bottle. Pours black oil, minimal head. I can smell the curry from a foot away, sweet fruit, cayenne, bit of lime. Strong curry taste, bit of lingering burn. Pretty good, but not something I could handle more than once.

Very dark brown with light brown head. Even though I knew from the label what to expect it was surprising with a beer smelling and tasting like indian food. Lots of curry in both taste and aroma. Not much of the roasted malt to sense in the aroma but I guess it does add some balance to the strong curry in the taste. The cayene (and the other spices) leave a burning in the aftertaste. The kaffir lime (I think it is) is really nice and fresh in the aroma. Full body and oily textute. I could have done with a little less burning in the aftertaste but otherwise definately original and kind of good tasting experiment.

TAP. Pours an oily black with lacing tan head.. Literaly smells like rice & curry, a touch of the lime.. So it taste like bowl of rice with chilli, it works some how, but my rating may not reflect it.. Sourced ballast point - little Italy - SD

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. Thats the first clue as to how heavily-spiced it is. You can taste and smell everything thats been thrown in: curry, cayenne, cumin, coconut, and kaffir lime leaf. It tastes like some of the best coconut curry youve ever had, and its a black beer. Any traces of hops or booze have been totally obliterated by all the tasty spice. Theres heat here, but its not from booze. That burn is coming from the huge doses of cayenne, cumin, and curry. Its hard to imagine this being done any better than it is.

Bottle. 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 Ive 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 its finest.

Like coconut? Like curry? Bask in the glory of a cumin covered stout that shouldnt work but somehow does. Share it with your friends and show them how far beer has come.

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.

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. Didnt 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.
