Bottle. Deep dark brown pour, thin tan head. Wow this beer is interesting, and the flavors actually come together rather well. Curry, lime, coconut, sweet chocolate, cumin, and a small amount of the dark malts noticeable. Very spicy, but like an Indian meal in the glass. Each flavor is distinct.

An excellent West Coast hop bomb this is just the sort of release to keep one inspired to keep searching out new beers. It is always nice to take a break from chasing whales to sample some more accessible regional releases - especially when it comes from Santa. I think I may have to acquire a couple more Ballast Point offerings once the cellar thins out.

Aroma / Appearance - Inky fluid and black this is what a stout should look like. A dirty beige head is on the mark; looking like a piece of pie crust it provides a good contrast. Black licorice, malt, and woody hops effortlessly mix into a pleasing aroma.

Flavor / Palate - Black coffee, wood polish, and carbonation sparkle in sip after sip. A moist bitter aftertaste rubs on the back of the throat. Not too abrasive, it invites more reflection until the spiciness takes over. A rather strange creature it is nonetheless one that I wouldnít mind trying again.

maxwelldeux (3681) - Everett, Washington, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown and thick with very little head. Nose has a lot of roasted flavors with some of the spices coming through. The coconut really comes through in the taste, which is a flavor Iím not a fan of. Really interesting stout.

This was a unique brew - thanks for sharing OmegaX. This is obviously a stout, and poured thicker than most of itís style. It smelled like seasoned salt, peppers and lime. The taste was roasty, had some nice chocolate and coconut flavors, and finished with a nice curry spiciness. In a good way, the ABV seems higher, but itís just the complex warmth you get in the finish.

11/29/12 notes: bottle, $6.99. Pour is brown black, semi-viscous with a small white head. Aroma of mint, chipotle, dark chocolate. Body is creamy, mild carbonation, sticky but not too long. The salient flavor is mint, asian herbs initially- perhaps because of how unusual this flavor profile is. This is rounded by more traditional mocha and kilned malts, with a hit of peppery spice (I could see curry here if told) near the finish. Pretty well-rounded and unique creation, more effective than Stoneís mint chocolate porter, of which I draw intuitive comparisons. Score is only hampered by my belief that herbs and dark ales just donít make natural complements.

Dark brown/black color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of sweet malt, cocoa, coconut, rich spice, & vanilla; Flavor of slight roasted sweet malt, chili peppers, curry, chocolate, and citrus (notably lime); Finish is quite hot; Interesting brew - but can be a bit much at times.
