This was a unique brew - thanks for sharing OmegaX. This is obviously a stout, and poured thicker than most of itís style. It smelled like seasoned salt, peppers and lime. The taste was roasty, had some nice chocolate and coconut flavors, and finished with a nice curry spiciness. In a good way, the ABV seems higher, but itís just the complex warmth you get in the finish.

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!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 youíre more on the wimpy end of the spice scale. This would be great, and was... on cool fall day.

Draft at Ballast Point. Pours a pitch black with a tanned head. Nose has a fuck load of indian curry and coconut. Wow the curry is captured so well. Taste is more curry with slight dark chocolate and espresso. Subtle burn. Interesting stuff. B ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber.

I bought this one because someone--Beastie?--insisted that it was actually quite a decent beer and that the unusual approach really works in this case. I can see how people could have that opinion, but Iím afraid Iím not among them. The problem, for me, is that the curry and cumin is absolutely overbearing in the aroma. If I donít inhale and simply drink, itís actually pretty nice. The cayenne is just right, giving it a spicy nip without being the least bit unpleasant, the toasted coconut is not strong but is very nice, the kaffir leaf slips in there, the stout base is tasty, gently sweet, and refreshingly NOT about 10% ABV. Quite close to a hit, for me, just not entirely there. But Iíve got to give it some credit. Upon opening and initially smelling it, I thought Iíd dump the whole bottle and open something else. But now Iím half way through and may just keep going.

AndySnow (3947) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2014
How: Draught.
Where: The Bishops Arms Gamla Stan, Stockholm.
Appearance: Black colour with a tan head.
Aroma: Spices, Indian spices, more spices, something else that might just be spices in disguise.
Body: Medium body and carbonation.
Flavour: Spices, curry, something that might be chocolate and malt, more spices.
Comment: Nice first sip, second is still decent, by the third the spices take over. Just a sip is enough, too much spices and unbalanced for it to be possible to drink a lot of it.

Tap @ bishops arms, gamla stan, Stockholm. Near black, brown head. Wow, this is spicy stuff. Curry, lemon, cinnamon, you name it. Like Jookos said, walking into an a Indian spice shop. Inviting aroma. Flavor has got the same spices as well. Curry. Nice nice nice. Balanced. Maybe not something I would drink a pint of but a small glass is just great.

Tap@bishops gamla stan. Whoa, this is heavily spiced. Just like walking into a, indian spice shop. I can pick up curry, turmic, jeera, cinnamon and that roasted version of jeera, whatever itís called. And sort of star anise spicy sweetness. These all on a black soft roasty backing. Soft body. Soft roasty. Lots of spices. Clean. Very interesting beer. Way more heavily spiced than any xmas or similiar beer Iíve had.
