Wild. Thanks to Matt for the taste. Like someone poured a porter into a plate of madras curry. A bit sweet, definitely a ton of spices. Mild heat. Strange. Tasty? Mostly strange.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2016 Bottle at Craig’s, Eyes watering slightly from the smell. Creamy, coconut, lots of spice. Blends perfectly into Thai green curry in a bottle.
Bottle at Appellation, something like the 5th time trying it now. Huge cumin, curry and kaffir nose, taste is similar, some of the coconut coming through. Quite a lingering burn.

On tap at Ballast Point Tasting Room. Pours very dark brown. Smells like an Indian grocery store. But also some sweetness and maltiness. Wow. Flavor is off the wall. Coconut. Some spicy chills. Curry paste. Crazy. Finishes very dry with a good amount of burn on the back of the throat. Crazy stuff!!!

I really enjoyed this. The aroma is somewhat mild, but dominated by notes of earthy, spicy smoke. The flavor is similar, blends very well with the malts and adds a solid spicy kick. Not quite hot to my taste but may be a lot if you’re more on the wimpy end of the spice scale. This would be great, and was... on cool fall day.
