An excellent West Coast hop bomb this is just the sort of release to keep one inspired to keep searching out new beers. It is always nice to take a break from chasing whales to sample some more accessible regional releases - especially when it comes from Santa. I think I may have to acquire a couple more Ballast Point offerings once the cellar thins out.

Aroma / Appearance - Inky fluid and black this is what a stout should look like. A dirty beige head is on the mark; looking like a piece of pie crust it provides a good contrast. Black licorice, malt, and woody hops effortlessly mix into a pleasing aroma.

Flavor / Palate - Black coffee, wood polish, and carbonation sparkle in sip after sip. A moist bitter aftertaste rubs on the back of the throat. Not too abrasive, it invites more reflection until the spiciness takes over. A rather strange creature it is nonetheless one that I wouldn’t mind trying again.

4/22/2015 (draught at Marty’s Hops & Vines in Cincinnati, Ohio): What’s this? A CURRY beer?! Hell yeah! This beer is absolutely fantastic. Aroma is mostly curry with a bit of coconut as well. The flavor is very dynamic and changes from drink to drink and as the temperature of the beer goes up. Lots of curry at first and it stays throughout, but the coconut and lime definitely show more on subsequent tastes and when warmer. The cayenne adds a bit of heat that builds, but doesn’t go over the top. Everything about this beer is right on point! I LOVE IT! I have a bottle of it that I’m looking forward to trying as well. Amazing beer!

22oz Bottle. Thanks for sharing Dan! Insane Indian/Thai food aroma. Every coconut curry I’ve ever had. Masala liquor. This is insanely unbalanced and undrinkable. Is there any stout? Is there any beer? Is there any restraint? Goddammit. Toxicl and over-flavored. Only suitable as marinated.

ajnepple (3113) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - APR 3, 2015
22 oz bottle from Tipsy’s. Black appearance with a light brown head that fully dissipates eventually. Spicy aroma with notes of curry, cayenne pepper, roast, coconut, toasted malts and light herbs. Flavor is moderately spicy with a lingering peppery finish. I enjoy the cayenne and coconut flavor with a stout but the cumin and curry could be toned down a little bit. Still, somewhat fun and enjoyable to drink.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Ariel. Black with tan head. Curry sauce and cumin and some sweet chili in the nose, and a taste that’s all Indian food with bubblegum and lots of coconut. Full body, very hot and spicy finish. WTF?!?

Thanks for this beer Sev! Pours a very dark brown colour with a lacy tan head. Amazing laksa curry aroma with coconut, lime, ginger, nutmeg and cayenne pepper characters. Lovely balance between curry spices and chocolate malt. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Fantastic!

Blairgus (3043) - California, USA - AUG 11, 2012
11 aug 2002, tap at the brewery. Dark brown, almost black. Wow, nose is awesome! Curry and coconut. Thin body and faintly fizzy. Flavors flip back and forth between curry and toasted coconut. Some dark chocolate becomes prominent after you get over the unique flavored. Pretty fun. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Crazy beer with a lot going on. Nice aroma of lime, licorice, pepper, coconut. The appearance is jt black, thin cream colored head. The flavor is very hot pepper, coconut, lime. Sweet, but one hell of a spicy pepper bite. The finish is 100% burning pepper, like eating Indian food. Medium/thick in body, creamy mouthfeel. Interesting beer. A bit too much cayenne to be fully enjoyable.

Dark brown, red edges, tan cover. Lots and lots of coconut, potpourri aroma. Taste is lightly spicy, coconut, some light leaf. Interesting.
