From a bottle.

A: Dark brown, nearly black. Love when my stouts look like this. Small to moderate amount of head that retreats quickly, leaving a little lacing behind.

S: Almost exclusively chai on the nose. Smells interesting.

T: A rush of chai up front. Malt is still detectable, but the balance lies more heavily on the chai. Tasty.

M: Mouth feel is a little light for my taste. Fairly carbonated, almost like a lager. This part put me off a little.

O: I wouldn't drink this every day, but I certainly enjoyed this as a novelty beer. Worth a try.

Best enjoyed by 4/30/14.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, char, and slight vanilla and cinnamon aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, char, and cinnamon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a chai presence that comes through better in the flavor and gets much more noticeable as the beer warms up.
