22 ounce bottle. Served in a Great Lakes Brewing goblet, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch tan head that fizzled away pretty quickly. There isnít much lacing at all. The brew smells mostly like cumin, curry, and cayenne, along with a bit of coconut. The spices overpower pretty much everything else thatís in the aroma. The spices are strong in the flavor of this beer too, but I can also taste some lime, chocolate, and vanilla. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís coating and smooth with a low/moderate amount of carbonation. I liked this brew, too bad I only bought one bomber because if I had another one Iíd probably drink it now! Recommended if you like spicier food/beer. $9.35 a bomber.

22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 4/21/2014. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 2 finger fairly dense tan head with decent retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, toast, roasted malt, vanilla, coconut, cumin, cinnamon, clove, peppercorn, cardamom, cayenne, lime, herbal, and toast/herbal earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and the wide variety of spices; with good strength. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, toast, roasted malt, vanilla, coconut, cumin, cinnamon, clove, peppercorn, cardamom, cayenne, lime, herbal, and toast/herbal earthiness. Moderate earthy spices and heat on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, toast, vanilla, coconut, cumin, cinnamon, clove, peppercorn, cardamom, cayenne, lime, herbal, and toast/herbal earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and big spice flavors; with a nice malt/spice balance with no cloying flavors after the finish and a moderate amount of lingering heat. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth and fairly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol was well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish other than the heat from the spices. Overall this was a very nice spiced stout. All around good complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and spice flavors; and quite smooth to sip on despite the moderate heat. A very enjoyable offering.

Wow I wasnít expecting this. I should read the label. I quickly ordered Indian take out to complement the drink. Overall the beer is well balanced but I found the coconut missing and the curry a bit more forward than the rest. But surprisingly it tasted great. The beer is a but pungent and yeasty, like Firestone Walkerís big beers. Well done.

High 5 to the creator of this brew. I havenít rated a beer in over 4 months and this one brought me out of retirement. Crafted really well. Super complex with all kinds of interesting flavors. I really enjoyed this and look forward to sharing this with a few of my craft beer friends. Itís a first of itís kind and I agree itís a bit much like previous raters have said. But that doesnít make it uninjoyable. It has itís place. Right now that place is in a couple of bottles marked for special friends who appreciate wierd "out there" creations. This qualifies. And congrats to the crafter.

taster at brewery. Looks almost black. Tan tiny head. Smells good and stouty with a bit of dirty vanilla. Tastes a typical stout at first as dark and slightly creamy then the flavors explode across the palate with dark vanilla and caramel then some hot flavors from the cayenne and curry. A complex special beer. Overall 7.5 of 10.

Bottle from a cool guy that worked at Ballast Point. This beer is very interesting. Its unlike anything g Iíve had before. So many different tastes coming together. Lots of lime in the aroma. The spices really come in the after taste. It was good but interesting, not something I could drink alot.

Scopey (8459) - 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 couldnít drink a lot of it.

Pours thin black with a thin white head. Noe is a bit odd with walnut, allspice, and coffee. Assaults the mouth the notes of toffee, black licorice,. Bold cumin blast to finish it off. Wild tastes.
