On tap (multiple samples) and from one of the judging bottles at GABF. Pours with a pitch black hued body and a small tan head. Aromas are explosive! Huge spice notes, light lime, curry, cumin, coconut, chocolate. Really spicy and pleasant. It took me a while to pull my nose away to actually taste it. Wow, amazing flavors, huge rich spice notes, curry and cumin with light lime notes. Insanely good. Granted there is not much left of the base foreign stout, but my god is this tasty! A bit of a spicy burn with a medium thick body. Huge duration of flavors. Absolutely extraordinary beer in every sense.

Bomber from Craft Ale House. Pours turbid chestnut toward black with 1-finger tan head that splotchily laces. Nose is spicy, figgy, with cinnamon, coconut, roasty malt. Tastes rich, very coconutty up front, with a heavy cayenne peppery flavor, roasty black patent malt, curry, cumin, cinnamon, and a complex palate. There are a lot of flavors floating around in this beer, and it all works very well. One of the more unique beers I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing.

Bomber. Poured deep brown with a couple fingers worth of beige head. The aroma picked up lime, coconut, and cumin upfront, with sweet, roasty chocolates, vanilla, and even more coconut beneath.. sweet overall.. very interesting stuff. The flavor found sweet chocolates, coconut, and other nutty notes throughout, with toasted coconut around the edges.. just a hit of fresh-squeezed lime around there too.. warm finish with burnt, yet sweet malts and a bunch more coconut.. curry powder and cayenne provided a slow, building burn through the long finish.. for the most part well-balanced, but a touch too coconut forward for my liking. Medium-bodied and increasingly spicy on the palate as it warmed up.. the sweet malts actually balanced well against the building heat.. I’d definitely drink this again.

Poured up on tap at the Carlsbad Pizza Port with mahogany body with tan head. The aroma offers up oreo cookie, Dr. Pepper, vanilla and then some spicy oak. Wow, this comes across sweet and cola soda and cookie like. Hmm. The taste is similar to the nose with a good load of the each of the following: spicy oak, oreo cookie crackers, Dr. Pepper like soda and vanilla. All these notes have trouble working together and form a sort of winter fruity cake and spicy oak sensation along with a touch of boozy heat into the finish. This is different but somewhat at odds with itself.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Bottle. Dark brown beer with a tan head. Curry and cumin aroma with earth, light malt, and backing cayenne. Curry and cumin flavor with malt and light toffee. Mediumb odied. Cumin and curry lingers with cayenne and caramel.

Scopey (6812) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2011
Bottle at Musa, Aberdeen. It pours opaque black, with a thin bubbly tan head. The nose is fresh coconut, chilli pepper, lots of spice (especially cumin), permanent marker pen and roasted malt. The taste is roasted malt, tar, chilli pepper, coconut, bitter chocolate, cumin, tar, lots of spice, citrus pith and caramel, with a big bitter finish and lingering chilli pepper warmth. Full body, moderate carbonation and surprisingly well balanced. Interesting stuff, but I couldn’t drink a lot of it.

DuffMan (6738) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle. Hearty very dark brown pour. Room-filling aroma of exotic spices: lots of cumin, pepper, and chocolate. Sweet chocolate malt gets buried under a sensory overload of curry spice: lots of cumin, coconut, kaffir lime, and vegetal pepper. Finish is moderate to high peppery spicy heat deep in the throat. The flavours really pop in this beer, but are quite overwhelming. As a "foodie beer" lover, this was almost too much for me, but it was probably the most interesting food beer I’ve yet tried.

deyholla (6633) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours black with a chalky brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a decent amount of spice with the curry and pepper coming through supported by roasted malts and dark grains. Flavor has a good amount of cumin and curry that slightly over power the dark grains and roasted malts.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle at James’ place for a tasting. Pours a deep black with a thin tan head. The nose here is amazing, full of coconut, and a ton of curry spices. Cumin, coconut, a bit of pepper, a touch of citrus and lime. Smells like chocolate spiced macaroons. Medium bodied, spicy at first, but not hot. Flavors are layerd beautifully, spices and coconut, cumin and lime, pepper and roast. Roast lingers into the finish, cocoa, more coconut, lime, cumin, pepper. Beatiful, remarkably balanced and subtle for such a complex beer.
