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.

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

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.

3.23/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pours to a thin beige head that falls to a ring that lasts. Deep brown hazy color. Aroma is chai tea spices so dominant that you can hardly tell it's a beer. Flavor is a potent blend of pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, etc. blended with faint roasted malts. On the sweet side. Tea-like finish. Mouthfeel is blah and watery. Overall, this is not a bad thing to drink but it really tastes more like a chai cola than a porter.

I like chai, but I won't be buying this again.

Being adventurous with this one, poured a can into a Long Trail pint glass.
Poured like muddy swamp water, similar to Smuttynose Muddy. There seemed to be a lot of sediment floating around, and there is no mention of it being unfiltered. Smells like the chai tea latte you;d get at Starbucks-vanilla, cinnamon, and cardomom-there is no question it was inspired by Indian spices. Very festive for the winter season. You get all those flavors in a big way, covers up whatever burnt malt taste should be there a bit too well. Very sweet with a metallic build on the end, mehh. No lacing, but carbonated moderately high. Very unique beer for those people who like tea>coffee. A one-off novelty item. Couldn't imagine going to this more than once in a blue moon. Best suited you're celebrating the X-mas season-in India-easy to drink, but no warmth from the burnt malts I like from my porters in the Winter.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - Pours a dark brown color with a thick khaki head that slowly sinks into a thin cap. Throws off nice patterns of lacing.

S - Smells like chai tea with some cocoa. Cinnamon, vanilla, clove, allspice, cardamom, sweet malts, ginger bread, reminds me of Christmas.

T - Metallic upfront, dark bread malts, clove, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, cardamom, the grains are slightly toasted, has some fruit tartness to it as well. The finish is long with a tangy ester character.

M - The body is medium with medium to high carbonation. Lackluster finish.

The beer smells great but the flavors don't come together as well as the aroma. The flavors only get worse as the beer warms. Interesting but this is a one and done.

Pours a light, tan head that is voluminous. A touch of lacing. A lot of spice in the nose of this one, maybe a little bit of chocolate in the background. Deep, deep burnt umber color. Starts with a massive cookie-spice flavor; cinnamon, maybe some allspice and clove. That's about it.

This is like liquid gingerbread cookie. Maybe around Christmas, I could swing one of these, but it's not doing it for me right now. I could maybe see myself getting this some other time.
