Pour from the tap at the brewery in Old Grove. Pitch black in appearance with a thin tan head. Scents of dark chocolate and cumin . Nice medium smooth bodied beer. Initial flavor is of moderately subdued indian spice of curry, cumin, and lime. Next up is the dark cocoa, molasses, and roasted malt. On the back end the cayenne pepper makes it self known in moderation. Good lengthy finish. Really enjoyed this beer.

(22oz bottle from HWC). Pours dark brown with thin khaki head. Has a nice garnet hue to it as well. After having just come out of the fridge, the first thing to hit the senses is the curry and sweet coconut. The taste is semi-sweet with lots of savory notes and roast. There is also some vegetal bitterness that Im guessing is from the lime leaf and cayenne. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Finish is warming from the alcohol and cayenne. The cayenne burn is quite nice unless you are a wuss that doesnt eat spicy food. The beer has loads of flavors going on, but they arent as overpowering as I thought they might be. This is not the spice profile that my wife (who is Indian) cooks with since she blends her own masala. Otherwise, this might be the perfect exotic beer. Really cool beer.

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.

Draft at Beer Revolution. Full pour so theres no head. Dark black body. First flavors are of fresh commute and mild curry. Moves into a bitterness on the back end. Would love to have this with Indian or Thai food. Too bad theres no aroma to speak of.

22 ounce thanks to Snojerk321. Big interesting taste upfront. The spices and coconut. Very different. All of it comes together well in a way I cannot really describe. I cant think of a beer like this one.I might be left with the kaffir taste the most.

650 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head that has good retention and leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is big coconut, some curry, some light lime, and a bit of roast. Very unique. The initial taste is sweet coconut milk, followed by some light curry, a bit of lime, cumin, and a bit of roast. The finish has a light bitterness and leaves a lingering curry spiciness. Light-medium bodied. Low carbonation. Certainly an interesting beer. It is dominated by the spices. I found it enjoyable, but could see how some would not like it.

Pour out of bottle, thanks to Doodler for the pour! Dark brownish black pour with a nice tan head, aroma is one of the weirdest Ive ever smelled, big notes of curry spice, coriander, tandoori chicken, hints of spicy fruit, some lime, coconut milk notes in there, wow this is crazy. Taste is curry, spicy ginger, hints of vanilla, coconut in there, hints of green pepper, touch of cayenne in there, touch of cream like sweetness, some lime in there as well. Some slight heat in there, but complemented super well, with a nice balance. Reminds me of very good Indian food. Wow, definitely one of the more interesting beers Ive ever had.

viscous black, with strong aroma of pepper and curry. And almost a chocolatey chili aroma character as well. Super interesting flavor, some chocolate with chilis and pepper. And some tones of the curry as well. Almost a finishing spicyness.

Black pour, off white head. A lot of curry flavor in the nose and there is a wonderful cayenne pepper bite at the end. Its very good.

A nicely spiced stout. I think the flavor profile stands out more than its individual nuances and Im okay with this. I dont sense a note of cayenne pepper, for example, but I do perceive a strong note of coconut that is hugged by hints of citrus, Eastern and Mediterranean spices. Its actually interesting and it actually works. Still, I would prefer to rather not have it without food -- I want to compliment it with food because otherwise I feel that it lacks something.
