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.

Reviewed from notes: at a large share, first time having this beer. Pours a dark oil like black with tan head. Notes of coconut, oyster, and curry on the nose; coconut and cumin on the palate, with some sweetness. Finishes with a little heat, weird, but not bad.

On tap at pony bar with James. This beer is phenomenal! Super unique... Roasty lactic stout, pine, hot curry cooled by those mint crumbs you see at Indian restaurants near the host counter. Love it.

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.

Dark brown Stout that is dominated by spices especially curry. Medium heat in the aftertaste. Not a style of beer I expected from Ballast Point.

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 isn’t 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!

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.
