Pours dark brown, inky black in the glass, with a medium tan head, moderate retention. Strong curry aroma, with notes of cumin, coriander, cinnamon, and clove, along with some coconut, and toast. Medium body, velvety smooth, good carbonation. Lightly sweet, mildly bitter, lingering curry flavors fading into a spicy hot finish. Amazingly execution -- this could have been awful, but its delicious like a good curry.

Curry in a glass, wish I had this with food as it was a little overpowering on its own. Black pour, thin brownish head that doesnt last at all. Very spicy aroma, curry, cumin, coconut. Body is fairly heavy, maybe its just the interesting sensory load.

I really wanted some rice or a garlic naan when I was drinking this. Very spicy, tastly spicy beer. Full of cumin, curry, pepper. I could barely taste the stout, the spice was so overwhelming but it was satisfying. Taste is lots of spice, very spicy, curry, a little bit of stout.

Smells like a good Indian curry dish, which is generally good, but not for a beer. Taste is very heavy cumin and Indian spices. First sip was intriguing, but by sip number three I'd had enough. 5 more sips and I could not continue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark brown with a thin head that disappears. Aroma is curry, lots of cumin, and coconut. Flavor is lots of cumin, curry, spicy pepper, and subtle coconut. Leaves a burning sensation in the back of the throat. This is a novel idea, but Im surprised by the high ratings. This drinks more like a curry than a beer, and I found it tough to finish my half a bomber. So did my wife. Oh well, Im glad I tried it.

I was not expecting that! Really strange flavors, but Im kinda digging it. Curry, cumin, toasted grains, burnt malt and cinnamon somehow blend together nicely. Good texture and pleasant aftertaste.

Rating #1548 - 20.03.2015 - Birthday Brew Tour - On tap at Ballast Point. Pours a dark black with a burbly tan foam. Aroma is coconut curry.. Taste is quite smooth, decent roast note, mild coconut sweetness and the peppery curry and cayenne tinge lingers into the finish, but is not unpleasant. Predictably spicy and magically delicious.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2015 Treated as a Forein/Export stout, this was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a ruddy burnt brown to black color with a slim glazing of a white to off white head. Was it even there? Uh...barely. The smell took some spicy to briny/salty enriched coating over some super light roasty aroma. Coconut was there, but subtle yet still wasnt there enough to balance as suggested. The taste enlivened the spice with the salt, it totally took my palatte to a new level of the rich "hot" feel on the tastebuds. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with an okay sessionability about it. Carbonation feels subtle enough as the harshness as I know as a Foreign/Export Stout, good ABV on this one. Overall, Id say this works, its Ballast Points way of taking a Foreign/Export Stout and adding some subtle coconut and a lil bit of spice, uh... yes, Id have this again.

L: pours a dark brown with a thin light tan head. S: an incredible curry aroma, they nailed the spices and curry powder. T: first sip starts off wonderfully, just like a curry puff, then it builds and ends with almost throat burn. Theres a tonne of cayenne in there. Im glad this was a shared bomber between 4, you dont need much to get the flavour and it wears you down. F: very full for a 7% beer, it coats the mouth and roughens the throat. O: as an attempt at a curry beer, they absolutely nailed it. Is this a flavour profile I actually want in a beer? Hmm, maybe not, it was great to try but a bit of a chore.
