Bomber pours black with a tan head. Aromas of cyanne curry some cumin grassy hops chocolate nib and some cocoa and coffee. Flavor is very layered bitter and spicy lots of cyanne up front. Body is full and finish leaves spicy pepper behind

Bottle. Black with little ring of head. The aroma is spectacular, more along the lines of a thai or malasian curry than indian, a perfect balance of spices, nasi goreng, lemon grass, lime, ginger and the coconut ties the whole thing together. Taste of lemon grass, lime and coconut, slightly roasty. Seems ever so slightly thin and quite spicy, cuts the back of the throat. Very well executed and completely unique

Awesome!!! This brew is something way out of the spectrum of beers for me, I have never tasted a beer so original distinct and totally creative. In this beer there is so much going on my taste buds are going crazy. I will make this clear “You must like Indian spices". This brew is dark root beer brown with no head or foam once poured. Looking at the bottom of my glass yellow sediment gathered at the base, looks like gold dust. The nose is amazing notes of pepper, black cardamom, red pepper, cumin, Indian bay leaf, cinnamon, cloves, Ginger. The Flavor of India in a glass truly amazing.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2014 had it on tap at Ballast Point on India St. last Saturday. A complex brew. The smell can be off putting to some, but I found it pleasant. Fresh pencil shavings. The curry is distinct, cummin present and cayenne gives a slight burn. It may not the best for the Firestone 805 crowd. But a sophisticated beer drinker can appreciate. Ballast showed creativity with the fusion, while still making a very good beer.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2014 a polarizer at the fest. i had two people blow it up (this after we bought a bottle) but we loved it when we got to try it. The mix of curry, coconut, cumin, cayenne and stout is unique, delicious, and a total treat. Not something I’d put down multiple pints of, but one? You bet. 2013 - better and better every time." yeah...now that I’m used to this, I’d not only put down a pint, I crave it!

Appearance: Pours black with a ring of tan around the edge.

Aroma: Curry powder, fresh squeezed lime, lime essence and hidden roast.

Taste: Curry, lime, dark chocolate. Cayenne pops out after the first sip and coats down to the throat.

Mouthfeel: Spicy, full bodied, super creamy.

Overall: Amazing amazing! I was doing backflips for it. I hope Ballast Point considers this for AT LEAST a once a year release.

Phone rate at Tiger!Tiger! Many pours over the last couple weeks. Black with beige head. Dark chocolate and coconut dominate, lime and roasted malt, mod amount of earthy spice. Flavor is still pretty tropical with the coconut lime notes, fairly earthy with bitterness at a 3, spicy heat at a 2-3. Alcohol well masked, alcohol too. Medium body, low mod carbonation. I didn’t love the first glass. 2-3-4 and five I loved it.

On tap at the ginger man. Pours a very dark brown smell is a sweet spice but can’t place the type of spice. Incredible aroma. Taste is very earthly with a little clove and cinnamon. There is a distinct burn on the palate which is unique and awesome. Not something I want more than a few sips of, but the few sips I took were terrific. I am rating it on the taste after a few sips. Not a whole glass, which would be too much

Pours a dark brown with a lighter brown head. Prominent notes of curry and coconut. Hints of thyme and chocolate. I’ve never had a beer quite like this. Bonus points for uniqueness alone.
