3.88/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 ounce bottle - $1.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown, effectively black beer with a smallish, light beige head.

Smell: Chai-spiced chocolate, roasted malt, soft milky accent, minor vanilla, a hint of fruit.

Taste: Moderate roastiness, melty dark chocolate. Minor caramel, burnt toast. Agreeable creamy lactose quality. A little dark fruitiness in the background. Also in the background is the chai tea blend. Letting the beer just settle on the thing, you can start getting hints of it, otherwise, it's like white noise to the milk stout. Smooth, subtly spicy, roasty finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It's good to a see a few new milk stouts these days. I think chinchill would agree with me.

Not thick and heavy, but dark. Small head and no impressive lacing. Perfect degree of sparkle for carbonation. The smell is divine, exactly like chai, and the taste has delightful spice, but the aftertaste has a sharp bitterness that lingers. Once you get it on your tongue, it overpowers the vanilla sweet balance.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Received as an extra in a trade, poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice brown 'too dark to see through' hue with a one finger mocha head that fades to leave spotty side lacing and a thin blanket.

S - Aromas of light lactose, faint chocolate, pleasant chai spices.

T - Taste is light chocolate, faint cream, fair amount of chai that actually ends up giving this a slightly bitter finish. Fairly straightforward, delivers what it promises.

M - Mouthfeel is slightly on the thinner side, would like it a bit more creamy/smooth.

O - Overall, this is a solid milk stout. Chai is a nice addition and while I'm not a huge chai fan I can respect what this beer is.

a chai milk stout, a noble concept, but this one isnt executed to perfection by any stretch. its got a rich lathery dark brown color with an inch of tan head that leaves decent lacing as it sips. the nose is not overly spicy, no cardamom or peppery heat at all, which i usually get from chai. very little sweetness too. the taste starts like a normal milk stout, velvety smooth and robustly bitter from the dark unmalted barley. balanced only by the lactose sugar, its a nice start. then comes the chai, which is an odd brand of chai i think, lacking the usual spice complex and tasting more like a black tea than anything else, it leaves a very strange almost acridly bitter aftertaste, which ruins what the milk sugars had previously established. a little spice comes back after the swallow, but it is no longer welcome. full body with a bit of a chalky texture after the smoothness on the way down. a good idea, but they could have pulled it together a little better i think.
