650 ml. Pours chocolate with a head that mostly sizzles away. Nose is chocolate, cumin, espresso, pepper, coconut and cinnamon. Taste is vanilla, chocolate toffee, some coconut, and lots of cumin and pepper. Maybe some other spices that get mostly lost in the cumin and pepper. Medium body is too fizzy, but has a nice balance of the malty sweetness, roast and spices.

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.

This beer is black, thick, has no memorable head and is dominatee by licorice in both the aroma and flavor. Sooo much vanilla its almost like an, yes an horchata. Lots of hot pepper shit makes itself well known in the taste. It can smell like milk and you know the kaffir lime is lurking in there somewhere. A hot beer thats as awesome as fire in the hole wings... a fun sport to eat,... painful to get rid of.

So Im having curry for dinner and figured my aperitif would be this Curry Stout because, why not? Deep only black pour with a beige head. With the smell of curry wafting around my kitchen from the beer Im mostly picking up stout character in the aroma: savory umami, cinnamon, nutmeg, a chocolate like spice I cant pin down. Truly the action curry is making this smell surprisingly sweet. The taste is sweet spicy chocolate with a big dollop of chilli pepper heat but still a sweet cardamom finish. With a Japanese curry this baby shines. A weird ass beer but fun. That sweetness I was getting was Chocolat covered coconut like those "mound" chocolates.

Bottle. The look is black in color, thin tan head, and dark. The smell is coconut, curry, cocoa, lime, malt, spice, and nice. The taste is heat, spice, curry, coconut, touch of sweetness, and some burn.

Thanks Billy for this bottle. Forgot to mention to him I dont like spicy beer. Enjoyed at fridge temp in a snifter.

A - Brown to black int eh glass, 2 finger leather head that fades to a thin line.

S - Smells of chipotle, chili peppers and Indian food.

T - Taste is very spicy at the finish. Up front its like curry chicken and masala tea. The middle is roasted and nutty.

M - Heavy body, very foamy carbonation

O - This beer is very spicy. Luckily, the curry balances out the chili pepper pretty good. Its still too spicy for my taste.

Draft. Dark with minimal head. Hard to get much aroma past the cigars of this place. Slight spicey. Taste is a flavor explosion. Vanilla, cinnamon, subtle spiciness in the finish. Wow. Spiciness continues to grow. By the end if the glass I likely won't be happy but this is damn good. Definitely spicey as I finished. ---Rated via intercellular device
