4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an oily black into the glass, with a diminishing tan ring of suds that leaves spotty lacing. The nose is sweet, containing the "4 C’s": Chocolate, Curry, Cumin and Coconut. Flavors are roasted upfront, with a nice chocolate-coconut essence mingling with cumin to provide a sweeter mid-palate, then finishing with the spicy kick of cayenne and curry, as well as hints of black pepper. This really hits all points on the flavor spectrum, a robust offering indeed. One of the most complex brews I’ve ever had. Full-bodied, and I absolutely LOVE the spicy heat provided in the back of the esophagus... just gorgeous on the palate. Silky smooth, active, warming, spicy, roasted, semi-sweet and ultimately complex. Delicious!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Ale Alpharetta. Well if this wasn’t a different brew. First sip - eh. Second sip - well this is interesting. Third sip - wow there is some burn here. This beer showed curry in a glass. Cumin, pepper, lingering spicy, a touch sweet, malty, cocoa, curry. The spice builds and sticks right in the back of the throat . Not overwhelming, but certainly a building heat. Flavors go well together and this is a beer that cooking with would be fun.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2014 Bottle from Save On. Black with fluffy tan head that dissipates quickly into ring and lace. Chocolate spiced espresso cayenne curry and woody aroma. Coffee chocolate curry spice vanilla with spicy lingering throat burn. Medium full body. My throat is burning. Reminds me why I so rarely purchase crazy flavored beers. Ultimately a $9 drain pour.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Rating from two days ago up the river. Bomber. Aroma consists of the exotic spices mentioned in the description with coconut the strongest, followed by cumin, curry and cayenne; not getting the lime. It also has the expected stout roastiness and a wet river rock character. Pours dark brown to black with a medium tan head with good retention. Flavor is like biting into a scrumptious Indian dish with all aroma descriptors firmly in place. Starts sweet and earthy before turning bitter, lightly tart (Kaffir lime?) and finishing with a moderate burn from the cayenne and some bitterness. Mouthfeel is creamy, finely carbonated, medium to full body. I love a nice experimental brew and this one succeeds. Very tasty.

Bomber. Pours black with a tan head that doesn’t stick around too long. One of the most unique brews I’ve tasted yet and the only one with coconut that actually pulls it off. The mix of coconut and curry and pepper really works well. As it warms a whole slew of other flavors appear, most notably the chocolate notes. This is good.

Dark pour with a big tan head featuring bubbles of different sizes, looking somewhat like pancake batter freshly poured on a hot griddle. Curry aroma hits the nose even before lifting the glass. Cumin and cayenne are also well represented, along with roasted coffee. Very unusual and very tasty.
