Ohp -- forgot to review this beer from the other night! On-tap at One Eyed Betty's in Ferndale, Michigan. I was given a free pour of this. Thanks a lot for the free poor, Mr. Hudson. Awesome -- who doesn't love free beer?

This was just one hell of an interesting beer... I can see why this is very love it or hate it. Basically, curry. Curry all over the place. You smell it, you taste it. That's that. Curry overload, so you'd better enjoy it. To some, curry smells like B.O. -- I thought it did initially, but quickly got over it and related it to a more desirable thing, like, you know ... food. This beer is flooded in curry with a very modest roasted malt character, surprisingly. The curry is actually pretty overpowering, and it's most definitely the most prominent aroma and flavor. The aftertaste is warming due to the curry, which had me going back for another sip. The feel is middle-of-the-road and quite nice for the style.

Totally bizarre. I knew about this beer but didn't know the specifics, and now I know the specific: CURRY. If you don't like Indian food, don't bother. This is a pretty nice beer, but one that I can see a lot of people not liking at all. For the style/as a beer, I'm not too fond of it just because, if you couldn't guess, I got almost all and only currycurrycurry all the way through. Definitely try this one, but if you have a bomber of it, be prepared to share it.

Maybe this just wasn't for me, but I hated it. Worst taste ive ever had in my mouth. I tried it on tap on the brewery one night and hated it, so I assumed something was wrong with the tap. Had a bottle the next week, and it was just as bad as I remembered it. Smells like a dirty diaper wrapped in indian food, tastes even worse.
