Dark brown Stout that is dominated by spices especially curry. Medium heat in the aftertaste. Not a style of beer I expected from Ballast Point. Cousin_Larry (895) - - JUN 7, 2015

Into a tulip showing pitch black with a finger of latte colored foam.
The nose shows only the spices from a typical Indian curry with a moderate intensity. (there is literally no other way to describe such)
The palate shows exactly the same flavors with a big chili pepper spiciness/heat that lasts until the finish accompanied by a slight, barely noticeable coffee bitterness. Big and full bodied, drinks like a typical stout. Very interesting and very well pulled off but I honestly can’t drink this every day. dyetube (1378) - Hurst, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2015
On tap at Square Burger. Pours black with a medium khaki head. The aromas are curry, black pepper, chocolate, coffee. The mouthfeel is dry and bitter with a huge curry flavor and light carbonation. Cheers! jinroh (1578) - ESTONIA - JUN 6, 2015
Pours dark brown, not much of head (but my pint glass was filled to the edge). Aroma has some quite interesting curry character, full of spices. Taste is also full of different sensations, at first hey are difficult to pinpoint down but then the overarching curry becomes more apparent. Perfectly balanced, leaves somewhat sweetish feeling at first but then spiciness takes over. Very happy I tried this, will probably try it again sometime - but almost feel that one pint is enough.

Bomber at GGW 2015. Brown with a tan head. Curry and coconut. Indian buffet. Completely weird but good. AirForceHops (7233) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 5, 2015
22 oz. bottle shared by Willrunforbeer. Pitch black color with fast dying head. Aroma is curry powder, cooked vegetables and hot peppers. WillRunForBeer (2652) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 4, 2015
As a commercial brewer how do you come up with the idea to create a curry stout?? I mean you really, REALLY, need to like curry to try this. A long lingering blast of curry throughout the sip with hints of cinnamon, old coffee and rounded out with cayenne pepper.
After two sip Brian and I looked at each other and poured this down the drain, terrible. Was this a joke or for real??
It’s the night of misfit children. Bomber, best by 01/11/13. I’m a couple years too late. In my defense, this was part of my super bowl squares win, so I’ve only had it a year. Aroma is peppers, cinnamon, lime, curry. Smelling this does not make me want to taste it. Oh, that’s not good. Vegetal, chili, curry, vanilla, drainpipe. badhack (554) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Wow I wasn’t 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 Walker’s big beers. Well done. jdjuice (500) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - MAY 23, 2015
Pours Coca-Cola with quickly disappearing head. Aroma is straight-up curry. It’s my imagination, but I can almost smell the rice to go along with this beer. Mouthfeel is not too heavy, maybe a little less carbonation would be nicer. Flavors are big and all over the place. Coconut is easiest to find amongst the curry, with the cayenne providing a good bit of heat on the finish. There’s a hint of lime/citrus on the finish.
