On tap at the ColLAboration beer fest at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy tan head that settles to a thin film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, coconut, curry spice, and lemongrass. Taste is very much the same with a spicy finish after each sip. Very tasty stuff. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good stout with some awesome Indian food elements added into it. A real surprise for me.

On tap at Tipsy Crow, 11/8/11.

A-Pours a dark brown with a thin mocha head and good sticky lacing.

S-Chocolate malt, nice roast, bittersweet chocolate and a hint of spice.

T-Garam masala spiciness blends nicely with the sweet chocolate. Not for everyone but I love Indian food, so this is perfect.

M-Medium bodied, spices linger.

O-Interesting and different. I can't see ever ordering more than one though.

A : Rich deep dark deep brown similar a baltic porter

S:  Lovely lime and light roast character with a little spazzaz from the curry.

T: Dang this is probably the most complex beer i have ever tasted. This thing hits all marks including lime, curry, roast, chocolate. Brilliantly put together.

M: More on the dry side and lingering  warmth.

O: This beer is insane on the flavors and completely worth it if you can even find it. Lucky me i have 2 more bottles.

Picked up a bomber while on vacation in Escondido. The stocker of the bottle shop said it had arrived just the day before, held out until now to try it.

Poured from bomber to pint glass. Pours a thick oily black color with a small 1 finger mocha head with decent retention and lacing throughout. Very unique nose: coconut, roasted malt, curry, hints of pepper and heat. The flavor follows suit with a huge coconut flavor that mellows out into a complex blend of curry, roast, pepper, cocoa, and a bit of lime. Very unique. Finishes smooth and creamy with a medium body and mild bitterness. Overall, this is quite a unique brew! It was a pleasure to have sampled it, I can easily say I've never had anything like it. I'd recommend it if for nothing else the unique flavor.

3.9/5  rDev +5.1%

22oz bottle.

Pours opaque black with a half inch head of beige. A few whisps on the surface and elongated dots of lacing throughout the glass.

Aromatics lead off with bakers chocolate, Kahlua, espresso, coconut, and spice.
Hints of curry, mint, and peppercorns follow through. Hawaiin Tropic suntan lotion drizzeled over Oreo cookies.

Full bodied with a snappy, prickly mouthfeel.

Charred malt, dark chocolate, coffee beans, and chili peppers start the palate. Coconut shavings, spicy curry, and white pepper follow through.

Finishes with a lingering throat burn, bitter chocolate, and coconut.

Interesting beer, but definately one to split a bottle with 2-3 people.

From 12/18/11 notes. This one was sent to me from Nuggamooch and shared with some friends. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into my Bell's tulip.

a - Pours a dark brown color with one inch of light tan head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of coconut, cumin, spices, roasted malts, and toasted malts. Some light chocolate as well. Very odd mix; doesn't really do it for me.

t - Tastes strongly of curry, coconut, lime, spices, cumin, pepper, roasted malts, toasted malts, and cream. Takes like taco cookies.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation.

o - Overall a very interesting stout. Wasn't necessarily bad, but a very weird and interesting mix that didn't do it for me. Some people really liked it as it tastes a lot like Thai style Coconut Curry, but that isn't what I really would want in a beer, and I think we all found it tough to drink 5 oz.'s. Not something I'd seek out again.

22oz bottle poured into a Tulip Glass.

Pours a inky black with a creamy mocha-colored head that settles to a nice cap and leaves lots of streaky lacing. Fantastic nose of sweet malt, coconut, curry powder, and spices. So insane, perfectly captures a Thai curry. Taste is just as amazing, TONS of coconut, chocolate malt, curry powder, and spices with a hit of lime and a subtle chili pepper spiciness that build as the beer warms (and you drink more). Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, with a medium-full body and good carbonation. Such an insane beer, and truly one of the most unique and memorable I've had!

Pours a very dark brown-black with a medium tannish-brown head that disappears slowly. Scent is heavy with coconut and a plethora of spices that make my nose tingle. A lot of chocolate and a little bit of lime. Taste is initially dark chocolate with just a bit of anise. I get a lot of coconut. Just a hint of curry with a ton of cayenne and cumin. The cayenne lingers on the throat and tongue with tingly spiciness. A bit of alcohol as well. As it warms...the curry comes through more. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, spicy, and tingly. Drinkability is fair. Overall, this is a unique beer, but all the spices can be a bit overwhelming. Tasty though.
