look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a deep muddied black/brown with half a finger of caramel head, poor retention, no lacing.

S - Chai overload, tons of spices, hint of graham cracker/chocolate.

T - Pretty much as it smells, decent chocolateyness initially but the spices dominate majorly. Fortunately an underlying sweetness remains throughout. Not awful but wouldn't bother with this again.

M - Medium bodied/semi thick, smooth, minimal carbonation.

(Served in a nonic)

A- This beer pours an inky obsidian body with a rigors pour resulting in a thin head of large bubbles. There is gentle carbonation that can't maintain the head.

S- The aroma is full of green cardamom with hints of other dry warm spices falling behind.

T- The green cardamom has an almost minty quality to it with some some anise flavors pulling up behind it. There is a cinnamon vanilla note in the finish that takes on a tangy flavor. The roasted malt bitterness and alcohol bite kicks after each sip.

M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with an alcohol warmth at the finish.

O- The spice really dominates this beer with the malt bill hidden somewhere in there. The spices and tangy flavor are at odds with each other and the alcohol seems to make it more medicinal as it opens.
