Notes/Commercial Description:
Black Chai is a sumptuous black ale that immediately entices the senses with aromas of dark specialty malts, cardamon, nutmeg, and ginger. The brew has a delicious creamy mouthfeel. Chocolate and roasted malt characteristics resonate throughout this black ale. The finish is playfully spicy and bitter.

A-Sampled at Extreme Beer Fest. Pours very dark, seemingly black.

S-Chai for sure. Whatever medley of spices make up the scent of chai, they are present. A little bit of roast.

T-As I read this beer's description, I dans see that they used all sorts of spices. I really pick up on the nutmeg. Hints of chocolate and roast.

M-Light bodied with an odd bitterness. Flavors lingers.

O/D-Happy this was only a 2 oz. sample.
