Near black pour with a khaki head that fades down to a ring. Strong aroma with curry, coconut, lime, and chocolate. Taste has all of the same with pepper heat you can feel in the back of your throat. Slick body. This beer is probably not for everyone, but I really enjoy it.

On tap at Yard House in Phoenix (Desert Ridge). Has a dark brown/black pour. Has a strong flavor of curry up front. Definitely spicy...I shouldnít have ordered an entire pint, it was hefty. I didnít get a lot of the coconut.

A nicely spiced stout. I think the flavor profile stands out more than its individual nuances and Iím okay with this. I donít sense a note of cayenne pepper, for example, but I do perceive a strong note of coconut that is hugged by hints of citrus, Eastern and Mediterranean spices. Itís actually interesting and it actually works. Still, I would prefer to rather not have it without food -- I want to compliment it with food because otherwise I feel that it lacks something.

Bottle at a random bottle share. Pours a medium brown with light brown, khaki head. Aroma is of sunscreen and curry. Taste is all over the place in almost the best possible way. Curry, coconut, vanilla and then a low heat sneaks up on you. Some noted this was over powering but I loved this stuff. Best drinking stout I can imagine based on what I like. Would love to get this one again.

Iím going to skip the introductory flourishes and just get straight into it - this smells incredible. It smells like everything the tropics could be, refined into a lovely perfume, with all the spices and fruits and liquors that make the Carribbean such a hot destination. Coconut, cumin, all-spice, shea butter, black pepper, vanilla and any number of other exotic aromas that make this smell genuinely like a 5-star seaside restaurant with a spice market next door. Really, this is an incredible aroma. The flavor is there too, reminescent of jerk chicken, coconut, a mild chipotle or chili spiciness and overall a gourmet experience in a bottle. Exotic, tropical, and all the flavors of the equator, Iíve never had anything like this, and it changes and wriggles and transforms as it warms. Ballast Point strikes again, and makes a beer that truly fits the sunny San Diego environs.

Pours thick and black with a small tan head. Nose is lime, Mexican candy, curry, nutmeg and pepper. Taste is sweet at first then bitter and pleasantly so. Mouthfeel is soft and sticky, body is heavy and finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Pours a pitch black color with a tan head. Aroma is of roasted malt chocolate, curry, kafir lime and lots of spice. The flavor again is filled with curry notes, with the kafir lime, spice, some chocolate and roasted malt, dark fruits and some subtle coffee. The body is medium with a creamy mouth feel. Overall a really interesting and different brew, I like it!

On tap at Ballast. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma has some chocolate but itís hard to find underneath all the curry and pepper. Medium body and bright carbonation. I love curry but this was too much for me. I was waiting for the complexity of the coconut and other spices but couldnít taste them. Finish is hot and not well balanced.

HighWine (951) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2013
Tap flight at the brewery. Still black pour. Light beige ring for a head. Aroma is shocking: yellow and green curry, cola, and fresh green herbs. Taste is curry root beer with some heat on the end. Holy crap...it works...in a weird way. Iím craving Thai food now. Curry yumminess. Surprisingly good albeit gimmicky.

Bottle share taster. Dark amber. No cap. Aroma of curry and chocolate. Taste is a balance of bitter and sweet. Sharp throat heat and dry finish.
