Damn what an interesting beer or at least a novel beer. I have wanted to try this for a while and I so wanted to share this with the beer geeks back in KS but checked baggage costs are so high. Either way, pours like a regular stout and good god all mighty the nose hits you like an Indian rock. Damnnnnnn, someone get me a mango lassi to go along with this beer. Its strong and I like Indian food but I do not loooooveeee Indian food, so its a bit of a conundrum. Flavor is better, more subdued, get some stout and strong but not hella (as the kids say) strong curry. Heat, the heat between me and this beer. its not the pepper ale type heat, its a small but constant heat that comes in waves and burns the top of your intestines, I love it. Cool beer. Bottle is filter clean after the last pour. This one is with you in mind Eric.
black color; curry spices dominate the aroma - lots of curry and cumin; curry and cumin dominate the flavor as well, set against a roasted malt base with a nice amount of cayenne heat; just hints of coconut and lime; leaves a nice amount of heat and curry in the finish; a really interesting beer - all of the flavors of a nice Indian meal - takes a bit of getting used to, but I quite enjoyed it bwa5879 (959) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 2, 2017
Black pour, looked a bit thin, half inch velvety cocoa brown head. Curry cumin and coconut foremost in aroma, cayenne too but less so, ferrous cola stout too. Soft carbonation, mouthfeel a bit frothy and spicy, finish leaves mouth numb. Flavors match everything in nose with cumin and coconut being primary. Really good unique stout, could use a bit thicker body.

65 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark brown with an off-white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are cumin, curry, and roasted malt - with a spicy finish. stevoj (5586) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 13, 2017
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. Palme (4823) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2017
On tap @ Rattle N Hum. Quite a deep dark one this, not the best light environment where I’m at now, but this looks pretty close to black ruby. It also has a nice big lasting and quite lacing brown head. Smells really good I have to say. It’s almost milk chocolaty, I get cocoa, spices and burnt wood - the last in a mild way. Can’t put my finger on what it is about this aroma, but I really like what I’m smelling. Tastes really good also! Almost like a mocha frappuchino just better. It’s thick and oily in the mouth while it’s creamy and soft on the prickling carbonation. Milk chocolate, lots of nice rich coffee. There’s cream and ice. A lovely spiced up creation that I can definitely dig. 11.06.2015

9/24/16. On tap at Growler Country. Dark brown pour with a small khaki head. Wow, Indian spice all over the aroma - promise delivered. Same on the flavor, loads of Indian spice... I don’t hate it, actually. This works surprisingly well and I’m surprised. Not bad. ads135 (5031) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 19, 2017
You MUST love curry to enjoy this beer. The aroma is aggressively curry. Lingering heat from the cayenne pepper. The only thing that balances the beer are the chocolate malts. Ron (4185) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2017
Bottle. Poured black with small off white head and good lacing. Totally smells of turmeric and Indian spice. That’s a first. Heavy spice flavor, with creamy body that works well with it. Very well thought out. One of the more unique beers I’ve had. It’s good that they are experimenting with different flavors. Good stuff . bookman10 (1211) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - MAR 3, 2017
I think this is an idea with promise, but the flavors need to be a bit more balanced. Pours a deep, cola black, with minimal head. Curry is strong in the aroma. Flavors include curry and cayenne pepper--maybe just a bit too much pepper. There’s something about this that’s a bit off, just a bit too extreme and I think it’s the pepper, though it might be the curry. I’d like this a lot more if it was balanced just a bit further.
