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

A: Black in color, though there is a slight translucency around the edge. Forms a smallish dark tan colored head. Little retention. Little lacing.

S: Unsurprisingly, this one smells like Chai. Chocolate, coffee, vanilla, tea, cinnamon, and green cardamon. Spicy and aromatic.

T: Taste is quite similar to the aroma, though the malts are a bit more present in the taste than they are on the nose. Moderately sweet with a distinct milkiness to it. Lots of sweet spices: mostly cardamon and cinnamon, but there is a bit of black pepper in there as well. Dark malts. Chocolate. Residual milkiness on the end.

M: Medium bodied with very low carbonation. Not flat, but not far from it either, though the lack of carbonation doesn't distract from this beer. Smooth, creamy. Lower bitterness.

O: Well, I've got to admit, I think Pipeworks nailed it on the head with this one. Tastes just like Chai in beer form. However, I'm not sure I need a beer that tastes like chai. I guess it's a successful novelty, but it's not a novelty that I see the need to revisit.
