Sampled on 11/3/2012. This spiced stout pours an eclipse black color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium head. The aroma is chocolate, curry, some lime and pepper. A medium bodied spice ale. The malts are chocolate, pepper, cumin, lime and some more pepper. The hops are herbal nd spicy. Lot and lots of cayenne pepper, with sort of overwhelms the lime, cumin and coconut. Kinda spicy and somewhat hot. Would have like this a whole lot more with a whole lot less cayenne pepper, it sort of overwhelms everything else and not in a good way. It’s very one dimensional. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly hot. KansaiBeerLvrs (5156) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 25, 2016
So I’m 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 I’m mostly picking up stout character in the aroma: savory umami, cinnamon, nutmeg, a chocolate like spice I can’t 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. Homer321 (5072) - Melboring, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Draft. Dark with minimal head. Hard to get much aroma past the cigars of this place. Slight spicey. Taste is a flavor explosion. Vanilla, cinnamon, subtle spiciness in the finish. Wow. Spiciness continues to grow. By the end if the glass I likely won't be happy but this is damn good. Definitely spicey as I finished.

Thanks Billy for this bottle. Forgot to mention to him I don’t 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 it’s 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. It’s still too spicy for my taste.
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. DialSquare (5032) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 31, 2014
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 chinchill (5025) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Aroma: lime curry and dark bread.
Flavor: Wow! spicy curry with a fine stout in a bottle.
Smooth but a bit thin. travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2013
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 (5000) - 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 that’s as awesome as fire in the hole wings... a fun sport to eat,... painful to get rid of.
