22oz bottle, courtesy of Mario from Brewed for Thought. Thanks, dude! Pours a dark, cola-brown color; creamy, fine-bubbled medium-tan head; excellent lacing. Lots of coconut, dark cocoa, and curry-like spicing in the aroma; very strange, but well-executed and a kickass melding of Indian spices and a cocoa-focused stout. Medium-full body; fluffy, pillowy carbonation; spicy Indian curry powder mixed with coconut and a cocoa/chocolaty core; this is pretty weird, and pretty delicious. Innovative, with the spices and coconut perfectly matched. Yum. Lingering finish: spicy curry, creamy coconut, toasty cocoa.

22oz Bottle. Thanks for sharing Dan! Insane Indian/Thai food aroma. Every coconut curry Ive ever had. Masala liquor. This is insanely unbalanced and undrinkable. Is there any stout? Is there any beer? Is there any restraint? Goddammit. Toxicl and over-flavored. Only suitable as marinated.

Wow - one of the most unique brews I have ever tasted! The beer poured dark and unclear on tap with a big creamy head. The aroma was sweet and delicious, unique candy like sweetness from the lime leaf and maybe the curry somehow?! The flavor starts off like a roasted stout or brown ale, nice, but then immediately the curry and pepper hits the palate with the coconut and kumin in the background. The kaffir limes help balance the whole thing out as was done in the aroma. I really learned to like this beer with its complexity as the glass went down. The aroma was thoroughly enjoyed for sure.

Dark pour from Valhalla. Light small head. Cocunuts and curry smell and dominate the taste with the cayenne coming on. Fascinating beer but probably best in small doses

Crazy beer with a lot going on. Nice aroma of lime, licorice, pepper, coconut. The appearance is jt black, thin cream colored head. The flavor is very hot pepper, coconut, lime. Sweet, but one hell of a spicy pepper bite. The finish is 100% burning pepper, like eating Indian food. Medium/thick in body, creamy mouthfeel. Interesting beer. A bit too much cayenne to be fully enjoyable.

Bottled shared at Stone in Asagaya. Thanks Masa! Huge coconut forward nose with red curry notes and an overall Thai curry like spice accompaniment. Super light on the palate, almost water-like. Lots of curry spices especially cumin. Hides the abv immaculately and that coconut rolls through the palate and into the finish. Cayenne burn on the finish. However a bit much, seriously.

Something about this beer was dead on with me. The pour is very dark brown with a thin tan head. The aroma is intriguing, orange rind, coconut, lime, a sense of curry. The flavor has the lime and coconut along with the curry, and some spices. The cayenne shows up on the swallow. All the aromas and flavors seem to go quite well with each other. Strange brew but very tasty.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2015 Dark pour with a big tan head featuring bubbles of different sizes, looking somewhat like pancake batter freshly poured on a hot griddle. Curry aroma hits the nose even before lifting the glass. Cumin and cayenne are also well represented, along with roasted coffee. Very unusual and very tasty.
