This beer is an interesting color, sort of a muddy but somewhat bright brown-orange. The head is just less than half a finger tall and makes a bubbly foam on top of the beer than achieves some spotting and patching.
The nose comes on strong with lots of earthy spiciness, not so much of the sweet, leafy and earthy combination of chai as much as kitchen-type spices, and there's also a lot of almost woody (herbal?) smoke.
The taste really gets it, though; this is chai tea latte all the way through. The smoky, maybe toasty malt lays down a great foundation and it all comes out as sweetness, earth, herb and pepper come out in the spiciness. That combined with a little depth from leafy and floral hops and just enough caramel malt to add a hint of a toffee-like note when it integrates make for a great beer. It's even a little milky in the taste.
It's a brown ale, but it could use a little more body as it leans toward the weaker side of medium. Carbonation starts off steady but flattens out a little at the end.
