Black with modest, fizzy, brown head, light legs / Interesting, rich nose of curry, cream, chocolate, coconut, cumin, lime / Medium body, a hint thin, smooth, creamy, some sweetness, good balance with light bitterness with a big cayenne kick on the finish / Rich flavors of semi sweet chocolate, coconut, curry, cream, lime, cumin, hot pepper / A great idea, with a cool flavor profile, somewhat clumsily excecuted. Still, all in all, a very worthwhile beer.

Draft at the beer authority NYC. Don't know why the waitress warned me. This is flavorful and sweet with coconut and cinnamon. Great ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours black with a thick mocha head. Aroma of curry, coconut and vanilla. Taste is lime, curry, pepper and coconut. Nice heat that creeps in at the finish. Wow this is so complex. Smooth and fairly easy to drink however the heat intensifies as you drink

Oh shit! Took a few sips but "oh what a feelin". I’m a true asshole of whom has forgotten the lad who gave me this elixir. Cold coffee and jalapenos man. Oooooahhh! I like this stout looking specimen simply because of it’s color. But, BAMN!

brnandersen (1834) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2013
Sample from 65 cl. bottle. Pitch black with a thin, tan head. Very spicy aroma with lots of curry, pepper, limes, vanilla and coconut. Roasted malts. Taste is sweet. Medium body, soft carbonation. Finishes lightly bitter and spicy with the entire menu from an Indian restaurant. Butter chicken and papadams, anyone?

Jesterdeal (1814) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Aroma of coconut, cinnamon, clove, cayenne pepper and dark chocolate. Pours black with no head. Taste is roast coffee, coconut, cinnamon and finishes with a tingly pepper. A little overboard on the spices but tasty.

Homer321 (1808) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Draft. Dark with minimal head. Hard to get much aroma past the cigars of this place. Slight spicey. Taste is a flavor explosion. Vanilla, cinnamon, subtle spiciness in the finish. Wow. Spiciness continues to grow. By the end if the glass I likely won't be happy but this is damn good. Definitely spicey as I finished. ---Rated via intercellular device

Bottle. This beer smells like a delicious curry with some roasted malts thrown into the mix. You have to be in the mood for it - but this is a great beer.

EdKing (1796) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle at Bruce’s B’day at the Craft. Opaque very dark brown, thin tan head. Nose if big curry, coriander, meaty, fruity, chutney spice. Taste is curry powder, coriander, spice, dark chocolate. Strange but in kind of works nicely.

LtDan (1785) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Appearance: Pours black with a ring of tan around the edge.

Aroma: Curry powder, fresh squeezed lime, lime essence and hidden roast.

Taste: Curry, lime, dark chocolate. Cayenne pops out after the first sip and coats down to the throat.

Mouthfeel: Spicy, full bodied, super creamy.

Overall: Amazing amazing! I was doing backflips for it. I hope Ballast Point considers this for AT LEAST a once a year release.
