—-I have had some nice Indian cuisines in the past. Hot Curry is probably one of my favorites. Although I believe that Indian cuisine in India would be way better than stuff we can find here. So if you never had curry or Indian cuisine before, it would be hard to explain. One thing to not about this beer is that although it has its sweet flavors, the cayenne makes the beer hot and spicy like a chile beer. The balance to the heat is the coconut, vanilla, coffee, chocolate, lime and berry like flavors. While Curry is headstrong here, the cinnamon, cumin and sweet flavors bring it to a nice balance. I really think this beer would go great with Indian cuisine. I would recommend it if you love Indian food, especially hot and spicy curry. I do emphasize the hot and spicy as it may be too hot for some folks…but being a man who enjoys spicy food, this is awesome.
