Ballast Point's Indra Kunindra is a spiced stout. It's far too overloaded for me to have very often, but I mostly enjoyed this bottle. It pours a dark chocolate brown with a thin, spotty head. The aroma is warm, sweet, and spicy. I definitely pick up on the pepper and cumin, and some of the toasted coconut. The flavor is sweet up front, with caramel and fig notes, and then a ton of spice hits mid-tongue. On the exhale there is a lot of cayenne pepper, walnuts, and mild chocolate. The heat from the pepper hangs around quite a while.
