On draught at The Monkís Kettle in SF. Pours nearly black with a one-finger light brown head. Nose is overwhelming. Definitely tastes like a Thai curry: kaffir lime, coconut, curry, cayenne, cumin. You can definitely taste all the listed flavors because this is spiced to the Nth degree. Tastes just as spicy; the stout can barely fight its way through. This was an 11 oz pour. The taste grew really tiresome after about 5 oz. Unique, for sure.

22oz bomber from Spirits Crossroads. Poured a deep dark black center of a medium density at best, average sized mostly beige frothy creamy head. Aroma is amazing with so much going on.....coconut, lime, darker chocolate, peppers, slight butter, swetness. Nice body with lots of heat, medium mouthfeel and averge to softer carbonation with lots of pepper heat. Flavor is solid, notes of coconut and lime followed by chocolate and peppers along with green hops and lots of grains. This beer works nicely. Gonna grab a few more!!!!!

Pours black into a tulip. No head whatsoever. Coconut, lime and cumin aromas. Thin with sweet coconut upfront turning quickly to cayenne before the lasting chocolate, lime and cumin finish.

On tap at Meridian Pint. Pours an oily, opaque black with some thing, beige head. WHOA. Smells like Hawaiian Tropic sun tan oil, coconut, salty air, thai basil, lime, perfume, ginger, spice. Flavor is crazy, it starts like sweet coconut milk, then you get some bitterness and some spice, then the finish is cayenne pepper heat. My mouth tingled long after I was done. A palate wrecker, but very unique. I wouldnít order it again, but it was worth the try.

Iím going to skip the introductory flourishes and just get straight into it - this smells incredible. It smells like everything the tropics could be, refined into a lovely perfume, with all the spices and fruits and liquors that make the Carribbean such a hot destination. Coconut, cumin, all-spice, shea butter, black pepper, vanilla and any number of other exotic aromas that make this smell genuinely like a 5-star seaside restaurant with a spice market next door. Really, this is an incredible aroma. The flavor is there too, reminescent of jerk chicken, coconut, a mild chipotle or chili spiciness and overall a gourmet experience in a bottle. Exotic, tropical, and all the flavors of the equator, Iíve never had anything like this, and it changes and wriggles and transforms as it warms. Ballast Point strikes again, and makes a beer that truly fits the sunny San Diego environs.

Ataraxia (361) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Oily black color with almost no head. Mild aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, and a hint of pepper. Tastes of flat cola initially, finishes with prolonged cayenne and curry warmth. Diverse blend of flavors result in nothing standing out too much. Rather smooth with a brief finish.

Best before 1/11/2013.

A: The body on this is pitch black with a thin tan head that dissipates into a thick ring.

S: The aroma is very spicy with curry and peppers with a coconut and lime aroma that clashes very hard with this. It reminds me a bit of body odor. I do not like this aroma one bit.

T: Oh boy I think this is awful, I donít even want to sip again to get the flavors, but I will. The beer starts off okay with dark chocolate and roasted malts but it goes downhill very fast once the coconut hits which means that the curry and pepper heat is about to hit and it does rather hard. Hints of lime are on the finish as well, but it gets very spicy and leaves a tingle on my tongue and throat. This is awful.

M: Thick with light carbonation.

O: This might be one of the grossest beer Iíve ever had. I am barely able to get through the few sips I needed to rate this. My girlfriend was laughing at the faces I made on each sip until she sipped it as well and realized what I was making the face for. Ballast Point, you blew it.

Jesterdeal (1842) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Aroma of coconut, cinnamon, clove, cayenne pepper and dark chocolate. Pours black with no head. Taste is roast coffee, coconut, cinnamon and finishes with a tingly pepper. A little overboard on the spices but tasty.

Ok this if unique, but in my mind way overdone. I get a heavy dose of coconut and cayenne pepper that overpowers everything else.
