probstblueribbon (3700) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2015
Bomber from Winooski Beverages, served cold, shared. Deep brown black with a thin mocha head. Intense curry spiciness, lime, a little roasted malt comes through. Medium+body with somewhat relaxed carbonation. Intense coriander, lime, a little more roasted malt compared to nose; off-dry with moderate bitterness, fairly intense pepper heat and a spiced, fairly malty finish. Very different. Tasty.

wombat23 (612) - Texas, USA - DEC 11, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2015 Shared 22 oz. bottle. Dark brown, tan head. Curry and cumin dominate the aroma, with some faint coconut notes as well. Taste: overpowering curry and cumin, some lime, a bit of coconut. Some malt is there but takes a backseat to everything else. Spicy cayenne finish that warms the tongue and throat. Interesting and unique, but for me, the flavors donít work very well in combination with beer.

darbeer75 (437) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - DEC 11, 2015
Aroma: smells strongly of cumin and curry powder with a little maltiness underneath; cumin is delicious but not my favorite smell; Appearance: midnight black with pillowy tan head that dissipated quickly; no lacing; Taste: spice and booziness dominate to an extreme degree; burns your mouth and throat; entirely unpleasant. Palate: too distracted by the taste to notice. Overall: my first drain pour. Took a chance and regretted it.

On Tap at Bitter Creek, Boise Black with dense lasting tan head. Peppery dark roast aromas and flavors. Quite a decent sizzle on the trailer. Mild blend of roastiness and coconut. Th cayenne and cumin hit you at the end. very interesting.

CanIHave4Beers (3999) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - NOV 13, 2015
On draught!
Pours basically black with a small but well retained head and not much lacing on the glass.

The aroma is cardamom, cumin, cinnamon, chocolate & coffee. Itís also got a bunch of other curry spice elements I canít single out. Suffice to say it sort of smells like some sort of interesting curried mocha, neat.

The flavor is really pretty curry heavy, but it retains the nice roastiness and bitter-espresso-like flavors that make it very stout like. Itís not especially sweet for what it is, but itís nowhere near being very dry. The beer seems to have quite a vanilla flavor going on along with cinnamon, cumin, and again the sort of load of spices that one might use in a curry, most of which Iím only vaguely familiar with (shame on my palate)

I just never expected such an oddity to come from a brewery Iíve always sort of associated with straightforward hoppy beers... guess I was in the dark, huh?
