3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The beer pours almost black in color with a dense tan head.
S: Smells like perfume and curry. Lots of cumin with a bit of smoke. A very light fruitiness from the lime, which is sort of weird. Almost chalky.
T: A very slight coconut sweetness up front followed by the lime leaves. There is a definite curry flavor and a strong flavor of cumin. Quite a bit of roast, a little bit of dark chocolate, too.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: Kind of a funky beer/idea. Decent execution of it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours dark brownish black with a slight tan smear for head. Aroma is warmly complex, but I think I get the cumin, curry and kaffir lime. Med body. Flavor is hot spice with lime following. Finishes with coconut and curry. Not sure I taste the cayenne, but my scalp has started to perspire, which is a sure indicator with me. Maybe there’s a little vanilla and coffee in the finish as well. Pretty complex. Very warming. Wow.

Tap. Poured clear black color with an average frothy tan head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex toasted malt, hot spice and herb aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth dry texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted spice sweet flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a complex dark beer.
