3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at BP Old Grove: The color is black with a small brown head. Aroma is mingled spices and a little chocolate. Flavor starts with a strange combination of spices. I detect curry and cumin, some grassy notes, some stout like flavors with a hint of licorice and a strange bitter finish. Full body is rich with soft carbonation. Interesting, strange, unique.

Botthle shared by jckp64, thanks!. Pour is clean charcoal blck with a thin light brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, light curry, light basil, faint....fuck it, this smells like green curry chicken with a hint of roasted malt. Wow. Flavor is also notable green curry chicken, roasted malt, and a touch of spice in the finish that lingers in the back of your throat. Really unique stuff.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap @ Pizza Port Carlsbad. Black pour with slight tan foam on the edge of the glass. Aroma is lime, curry, soft chocolate, and roast. Taste is spicy curry, lime, chocolate, roasted malt, and a bit of heat lingering through the finish. Unique, complicated, and very enjoyable. I really like this beer.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is like an over-peppered can of V-8 juice! Peppers, spice and vegetables. Pours a solid dark dirt-brown with a tan ring and minimal lacing. The taste is multilayered and complex, but overall very peppery. Cayenne pepper dominates the flavor, but there is also a hint of sweetness provided by the coconut. A lasting "warm" aftertaste keeps the taste sensation going long after the swallow. Medium body and moderate carbonatin. Overall, who needs a spicy Bloody Mary when youâ€™ve got this brew! Take care - little goes a long way.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 2/20
Best before 1/11/2013.
A: The body on this is pitch black with a thin tan head that dissipates into a thick ring.
S: The aroma is very spicy with curry and peppers with a coconut and lime aroma that clashes very hard with this. It reminds me a bit of body odor. I do not like this aroma one bit.
T: Oh boy I think this is awful, I don’t even want to sip again to get the flavors, but I will. The beer starts off okay with dark chocolate and roasted malts but it goes downhill very fast once the coconut hits which means that the curry and pepper heat is about to hit and it does rather hard. Hints of lime are on the finish as well, but it gets very spicy and leaves a tingle on my tongue and throat. This is awful.
M: Thick with light carbonation.
O: This might be one of the grossest beer I’ve ever had. I am barely able to get through the few sips I needed to rate this. My girlfriend was laughing at the faces I made on each sip until she sipped it as well and realized what I was making the face for. Ballast Point, you blew it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle.Blind nose. Pours a dark black coffee pour with a java head. Nose, startling, chocolate mint, and spicey. After reading the description, could smell the curry and coconut. Taste layered with spices, strong curry, coconut with some lime. Finishes on the same tasting notes and long. An Indian diner in a bottle. A rather interesting complex concoction. Quaff Score 6 / 10

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a brown head and bizarre beer aroma of Indian spices. Taste is unique as well, all Indian spices, lots of curry, coconut, cumin, and spicy pepper with a spicy long finish. Different, unique brew with interesting ingredients, complex

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wow what a unique brew! It reminds me of Thai coconut soups. Nose is full of curry spice, some light coconut, and lime, behind a malty backbone. Pour is black with a light tan head. Flavor is full of curry, some light chocolate, lime, and pepper. Good stuff, very different.

Bottle from a cool guy that worked at Ballast Point. This beer is very interesting. Its unlike anything g I’ve had before. So many different tastes coming together. Lots of lime in the aroma. The spices really come in the after taste. It was good but interesting, not something I could drink alot.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Spiced to all hell. Cumin galore on the nose like I walked into an Indian spice store on the LES. Spices and lentils assault my palate, cayenne pepper overwhelms. Vanilla comes from left field to save the day the end but gets pummeled by the pepper. Meh.
