Ale Alpharetta. Well if this wasnít 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.

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 Cís": 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 Iíve 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!

Oh shit! Took a few sips but "oh what a feelin". Iím 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 itís color. But, BAMN!

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. And we have a winner here folks! This smells and tastes exactly like described. All of those excellent flavor additions are each pronounced and at the same time blended just like an incredible curry dish in India. You actually have a nice spice burn on the end of your throat at the end of each sip. The girlfriend loved it. Only reason this isnít getting a solid 4 from me is that it could be just a touch thicker to round it all out. Other than that - a total winner!

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.

Bottle. Very strange beer. Pours black with khaki head. Nose is heavy on coconut and kaffir. Taste incorporates a ton of curry as well. Obviously reminiscent of Indian food. More interesting than good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber. Pours black with a tan head that doesnít stick around too long. One of the most unique brews Iíve 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.
