    22 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium frothy tan head that retains well and laces the glass.

    The aroma is huge Indian spice, perfumey curry and lime and coconut. Very interesting.

    The flavor is interesting as well - lots of curry powder, sweet lime and a little coconut and then a lot of heat from the spice (cayenne). The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

    Overall, a very unique and interesting beer. It actually works for me.

    Pours a jet black coloring with brown tints around the edges and no head whatsoever. Looks heavy and dense. Aromas of bittersweet baker's chocolate enveloped in curry spices. Very interesting blending on the nose. Flavors are curry forward, with both spice and heat, followed by chocolate and coffee, both bitter and sweet, and then the beer transitions back into the spice and heat of curry. The aftertaste is bitter and warming, and the warmth lingers throughout the finish and for quite a while after, as well. The finish is slick and smooth. This is a very unique stout. worth a try especially if you like spicy food.

    Pours a rich, warm sable with a rather thick and somewhat persistent light tan head. Aroma has a roast malt core that supports coconut, curry, and a hint of coffee. Flavor has typical roast malt of a stout, with a strong coconut note and a firm pepper bite that is a bit much for a beer but not unbearable - at least they didn’t pepper it to death. Still, this is a beer to be sipped slowly, preferably with a meal. Texture is firm but not too fizzy, and pepper is a mite strong in the finish. I like curry, but on my plate rather than in my beer; nevertheless, this is a worthwhile effort.

    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.

    From the KnoxBeerCrew tasting. Dark brown pour, a touch thin, thinnish beige head, some lacing. Huge cool spicy curry aroma, Sriracha Hot Sauce minus the garlic, peppers, light burnt toast, some sweetness also. Taste mimics the nose, with a nice spice light hot bitter then sweet linger. Wickedly neat beer, definitely worth trying if only once.

    98th percentile over at RB, but a polarizer at the fest. i had two people blow it up (this after we bought a bottle) but we loved it when we got to try it. The mix of curry, coconut, cumin, cayenne and stout is unique, delicious, and a total treat. Not something I'd put down multiple pints of, but one? You bet. 2013 - better and better every time.
