probstblueribbon (3579) - 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.

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!

maneliquor (3482) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2014
Tap at Young & Jackson’s. Probably one of the weirdest stouts I have ever had but i absolutely loved this. Smells exactly like a curry, all the right elements are there - coconut, lime, spice, coriander, meatiness, cumin. Crazy good. I drank a pint of this, so that means it must be tasty

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.

BenH (3438) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle. Black with little ring of head. The aroma is spectacular, more along the lines of a thai or malasian curry than indian, a perfect balance of spices, nasi goreng, lemon grass, lime, ginger and the coconut ties the whole thing together. Taste of lemon grass, lime and coconut, slightly roasty. Seems ever so slightly thin and quite spicy, cuts the back of the throat. Very well executed and completely unique

IndianaRed (3430) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 22, 2015
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.

1FastSTi (3359) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Tap at Ballast Point. The beer pours to a dark body. Smells and tastes of chocolate curry and coconut. Like a rich Indian fudge. Medium full body, but clean. An astonishing surprise!

Bulk_Carrier (3346) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - DEC 28, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2015 Treated as a Forein/Export stout, this was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a ruddy burnt brown to black color with a slim glazing of a white to off white head. Was it even there? Uh...barely. The smell took some spicy to briny/salty enriched coating over some super light roasty aroma. Coconut was there, but subtle yet still wasn’t there enough to balance as suggested. The taste enlivened the spice with the salt, it totally took my palatte to a new level of the rich "hot" feel on the tastebuds. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with an okay sessionability about it. Carbonation feels subtle enough as the harshness as I know as a Foreign/Export Stout, good ABV on this one. Overall, I’d say this works, its Ballast Point’s way of taking a Foreign/Export Stout and adding some subtle coconut and a lil’ bit of spice, uh... yes, I’d have this again.

culchiem (3344) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 7, 2015
Bottle from LRS. Brownish black with a medium head. Aroma is spice and chocolate. Taste is like an Indian meal in a glass, cumin, coconut, lime.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Serving: 22 oz. bottle. It pours dark brown with a thick and resliliant tan head. The nose smells like a mix of roasted malt and coconut curry. The flavor highlights the curry from start to finish. Light bits of coconut, a roasted malt, lactose sweetness, and a very light spicy warmness. Medium to full body with a lingering curry finish. Interesting and well brewed, but not one I want more than a half a pint of.
