22oz in Seattle. Wow, strange. Huge spicy cumin aroma. Strong and strange. Creamy sweet body, better as a beer than aroma. Quite spicy, raw powdery spices. Very strange, but quirky interesting. Glad I tried it but not going to be seeking this out again.

Draft at the Old Grove Brewery. Pours almost clear copper with a fizzy beige head and lots of lacing. Tastes like dry pine, booze, caramel, and spicy hops. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like alcohol, caramel, and nutty pine hops.

nearbeer (5076) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 18, 2014
650 ml. Pours chocolate with a head that mostly sizzles away. Nose is chocolate, cumin, espresso, pepper, coconut and cinnamon. Taste is vanilla, chocolate toffee, some coconut, and lots of cumin and pepper. Maybe some other spices that get mostly lost in the cumin and pepper. Medium body is too fizzy, but has a nice balance of the malty sweetness, roast and spices.

superspak (4997) - Michigan, USA - JUL 22, 2014
22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 4/21/2014. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 2 finger fairly dense tan head with decent retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, toast, roasted malt, vanilla, coconut, cumin, cinnamon, clove, peppercorn, cardamom, cayenne, lime, herbal, and toast/herbal earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and the wide variety of spices; with good strength. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, toast, roasted malt, vanilla, coconut, cumin, cinnamon, clove, peppercorn, cardamom, cayenne, lime, herbal, and toast/herbal earthiness. Moderate earthy spices and heat on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, toast, vanilla, coconut, cumin, cinnamon, clove, peppercorn, cardamom, cayenne, lime, herbal, and toast/herbal earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and big spice flavors; with a nice malt/spice balance with no cloying flavors after the finish and a moderate amount of lingering heat. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth and fairly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol was well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish other than the heat from the spices. Overall this was a very nice spiced stout. All around good complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and spice flavors; and quite smooth to sip on despite the moderate heat. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle. The look is black in color, thin tan head, and dark. The smell is coconut, curry, cocoa, lime, malt, spice, and nice. The taste is heat, spice, curry, coconut, touch of sweetness, and some burn.

kidmartinek (4877) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2013
This beer is black, thick, has no memorable head and is dominatee by licorice in both the aroma and flavor. Sooo much vanilla its almost like an, yes an horchata. Lots of hot pepper shit makes itself well known in the taste. It can smell like milk and you know the kaffir lime is lurking in there somewhere. A hot beer thats as awesome as fire in the hole wings... a fun sport to eat,... painful to get rid of.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4805) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 25, 2016
So Im having curry for dinner and figured my aperitif would be this Curry Stout because, why not? Deep only black pour with a beige head. With the smell of curry wafting around my kitchen from the beer Im mostly picking up stout character in the aroma: savory umami, cinnamon, nutmeg, a chocolate like spice I cant pin down. Truly the action curry is making this smell surprisingly sweet. The taste is sweet spicy chocolate with a big dollop of chilli pepper heat but still a sweet cardamom finish. With a Japanese curry this baby shines. A weird ass beer but fun. That sweetness I was getting was Chocolat covered coconut like those "mound" chocolates.

AdamChandler (4757) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Thanks Billy for this bottle. Forgot to mention to him I dont like spicy beer. Enjoyed at fridge temp in a snifter.

A - Brown to black int eh glass, 2 finger leather head that fades to a thin line.

S - Smells of chipotle, chili peppers and Indian food.

T - Taste is very spicy at the finish. Up front its like curry chicken and masala tea. The middle is roasted and nutty.

M - Heavy body, very foamy carbonation

O - This beer is very spicy. Luckily, the curry balances out the chili pepper pretty good. Its still too spicy for my taste.

22 oz bottle. Black with a small beige head. Aroma is of lime, light coconut, coffee, cumin, and curry. Taste is of roasted malts, sweet coconut milk, light curry, coca-cola, with a nice burn in the finish.

5oz sample at Daily Growler, UA - deep dark brown pour, khaki head. aroma of even curry spice. tastes of curry spice that heats up throughout the sip. Strange, but only interesting to try once. 6.8
