Tastes alright at the front end since you are tasting the chai but it quickly developed into a gag at the end and I found after several attempts, I couldn't drink it. I like chai the but wasn't into this. I suppose try it if you really love chai and hope for the best.

12 ounce can, w/o freshness/canning date info.

Pours darker honey amber, long lasting dark khaki cap, goes to a fine film and leaves moderate fine lace.

Sweet spiced up nose with some cinnamon and vanilla.

More moderate sweet on the palate, again with cinnamon, and light vanilla. Some roasted malts smooth things out.

Meh, mellow and fairly well spiced, too much really for my liking. Add some of this to a spiced cake or holiday bread recipe and all would be well.

Poured with a reasonable light tan head that lingers with a light cover, some lace and has an opaque black brown color. I don't pick up any of the spices in the aroma just basically Porter. I am not a chai tea drinker so I don't remember those flavors but the spices in this beer are reminiscent of holiday spices. To me they don't go so well together. The body is okay. This beer might be for some but not for me.

Pours with a thick creamy head and develops wispy lacing. Nice mahogany-charcoal hue.

Smells like field mint, sour yeast, chai tea, fig, tobacco resin, fall baking spice, oak and cocoa.

Tasting brings notes of masala and chai black teas, dried fig and blueberry, chocolate mint. Finished with a Medium-dry cocoa finish.

Smooth mouthfeel, velvety but not too rich. Dry like a good porter should be.

Great beer. I drank it at 30 degrees fahrenheit. Delightfully reminded me of Christmas. Vanilla and cinnamon are the flavors that shine most with a complex spice and bitter background. Great flavor without straying too far from a solid porter flavor. Yummy. The company should feel free to send me free beer anytime.
