Thanks Billy for this bottle. Forgot to mention to him I donít like spicy beer. Enjoyed at fridge temp in a snifter.

A - Brown to black int eh glass, 2 finger leather head that fades to a thin line.

S - Smells of chipotle, chili peppers and Indian food.

T - Taste is very spicy at the finish. Up front itís like curry chicken and masala tea. The middle is roasted and nutty.

M - Heavy body, very foamy carbonation

O - This beer is very spicy. Luckily, the curry balances out the chili pepper pretty good. Itís still too spicy for my taste.

Draft at the Old Grove Brewery. Pours almost clear copper with a fizzy beige head and lots of lacing. Tastes like dry pine, booze, caramel, and spicy hops. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like alcohol, caramel, and nutty pine hops.

Bottle. I had seen this and passed on it many times before finally picking this one up. apparently, itís not for me. I got a hell of a lot of cough syrup/medicine flavors along with the curry, cayenne, and other spices. I honestly found it very difficult to drink and poured out over 90% of the bottle. Oh well, obviously my experience is fairly singular and I know BP to be a reputable brewery so Iíll just mark this down as a wash.

22oz bottle. black pour with a head that diminishes to nothing in a few seconds. enticing aroma of red curry, chili, vanilla(coconut?). a medium bodied beer wit a spicy heat in the finish. lots of cumin notes and curry, lesser notes of tart lime and sweet coconut. really fun to drink. i canít say iíve had anything remotely like this before...itís not just your typical hot pepper stout. layers of spices. awesome...just not sure i want to drink 2 pints of this in a row.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2014 Craziest beer ever so I have to give it a 4. Crazy curry flavor in a beer are you serious?! Dark pour, nose is curry, taste is curry, so much curry in this.

dark red brown, thick creamy beige head that drops. Nose is pencil shavings, leafy and dry with light pepper, some coconut. Huge coconut flavor across mid, light chocolate sweetness and dry heat in finish, thin and salty with low carb. Dry spice and roast combine, work on each other.

Bomber from Samís, Durham. Right off the bat, let me say that I deeply regret not getting more than a single bottle of this. INSANE nose, you really get the subtle coconut and lime, along with dusty coriander, garam masala, and a nice healthy foreign stout character. Mouthfeel ever so slightly thin, but damn thatís some nice kick on the finish. Coconut milk for sure in the taste, giving it a nice robust core as the heat comes on and backs off in waves. Never merely burn, though, always complexly flavorful. Holy fuck this is good.

22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 4/21/2014. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 2 finger fairly dense tan head with decent retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, toast, roasted malt, vanilla, coconut, cumin, cinnamon, clove, peppercorn, cardamom, cayenne, lime, herbal, and toast/herbal earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and the wide variety of spices; with good strength. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, toast, roasted malt, vanilla, coconut, cumin, cinnamon, clove, peppercorn, cardamom, cayenne, lime, herbal, and toast/herbal earthiness. Moderate earthy spices and heat on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, toast, vanilla, coconut, cumin, cinnamon, clove, peppercorn, cardamom, cayenne, lime, herbal, and toast/herbal earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and big spice flavors; with a nice malt/spice balance with no cloying flavors after the finish and a moderate amount of lingering heat. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth and fairly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol was well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish other than the heat from the spices. Overall this was a very nice spiced stout. All around good complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and spice flavors; and quite smooth to sip on despite the moderate heat. A very enjoyable offering.
