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.

Bomber from Sam’s, 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 that’s 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.

Tulip draft at The Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, Florida. The pour is a deep brown black with a small khaki head. The aroma is lime initially, along with the cumin spice, curry and then a coconut toasted sweetness as the beer warms. The taste is bonkers, all of the component aroma flavors are blended cleanly (somehow) with spice, coconut and lime all adding complexity. The palate is medium bodied with soft carbonation and a dry lightly sweet coconut finish. Really well executed.

As a side note, I have been seeing this beer show up in search results for Indra for years, glad to have tried it for that reason alone.

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.

Sampled at the SCCCT event at Friendship Brewery. It poured a dark brown/black color with a tan head. The aroma was of sweet malts, cocoa, coconut, spices and vanilla. The taste was similar to the aroma with more roasted malts, peppers, curry, chocolate, citrus and some coconut with a touch of heat in the finish. Very interesting.

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.

shoulderbroken (3831) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 14, 2016
Tap at Thrash Zone. Spicy, curry powder, thats about it. Seems wrong but I quite like it. Little burn at the end. Some sweet roastiness, bit of milky caramel. Definitely interesting but might struggle with a pint.

LilBeerDoctor (3773) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with a very thin tan head. Aroma of cumin, roasted malt, roasted pepper, sweet lime, chocolate. It smells like a spice cabinet. Flavor of lots of spices and some heat up front - cumin, cayenne pepper, curry - followed by roasted malt, chocolate notes, and licorice. The coconut is probably least prominent. The spices are definitely powerful but the underlying malt notes are still present. Overall a great and very complex beer and great for those who love their spicy stouts. 8/4/8/4/15 [3.9/5]

probstblueribbon (3726) - 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.
