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 don’t 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 I’ve 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.

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.

Drank in Denver for GABF 2012. Another unique brew, that is probably love it or hate it. Pours a murky brown color. The aroma is awesome bouquets of coconut, curry. The flavor has all of the curry you want with lime, coconut, spices. Very smooth and very good. Works perfectly.

Pours a dark brown with a lighter brown head. Prominent notes of curry and coconut. Hints of thyme and chocolate. I’ve never had a beer quite like this. Bonus points for uniqueness alone.

Something about this beer was dead on with me. The pour is very dark brown with a thin tan head. The aroma is intriguing, orange rind, coconut, lime, a sense of curry. The flavor has the lime and coconut along with the curry, and some spices. The cayenne shows up on the swallow. All the aromas and flavors seem to go quite well with each other. Strange brew but very tasty.

I guess this rates so high due to it’s uniqueness? Pours black with a very small tan head. Aroma is full of curry. Taste matches description of curry, lime, cumin, and coconut. Curry taste in mouth, but strong burning spicy finish. Not enjoyable for me, but very different.

On draft at city beer san francisco. Pours almost black with a thick tan head slowly receding leaving lots of lacing. Aroma of lime and coconut. Complex and interesting mix of chocolate, lime, coconut and spices giving way to a fiery finish.

Bottle. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, light chocolate, curry and lime. Flavor starts off with roasted malts and light chocolate followed by some cayenne spice. From the middle to the finish you get more heat along with a great mix of curry and lime flavors. Overall a nice mix of chocolate, hot pepper heat and curry/lime flavors. A strange but tasty brew.
