Poured from a 12 oz can into a tulip

L: Cloudy dark walnut brown pour. 2 fingers of foamy off-white head... great lacing.

S: Smells fantastic... Chai and evergreen... sugar and spice... kinda smells like the Holidays

T/F: Brown ale-ish base... toasted malts and grains... dark sugars and earth, upon which is layered a non-subtle blast of Chai and spice. Tea, spruce/evergreen, cardamom, and nutmeg... the spice overpowers the beer a bit. Medium bodied... well carbonated and sticky on the tongue. The finish and aftertaste is chai.

O: This delivers exactly what it offers... spicy Chai on top of a beer. Not a bad brew... a little overpowering, and not one I'd want regularly. Made for a nice change of pace, and again... it smells/tastes like Christmas.

L - Brown, with no clarity, 1 finger of head, and some nice lace left all over the top of the brew. Gorgeous

S - Chai, spices, caramel. Very nice aroma

T - Chai tea, malty, mild pine hops

F - Light body and medium carbonation

O - An enjoyable fall brew.

You definitely taste the awesome chai flavors but I don't know if ale is the best beer type for such flavors. The aftertaste is a bit metallic / chemical-y. I think that if the beer had a bit more body, the chai flavors would work better. Maybe some sort of stout?

L: pours dark cola color with feint white head. lower carbonation. clear, no sediment.

S: cinnamon and spice and everything holliday- does smell like fresh brewed chai tea. dont' pick up any beer aromas

T: quite overspiced; the chai spicing is very strong here. Very little character from the malt or yeast.

F: a bit thin and watery, could use a little more body

O: If you really enjoy chai tea or chai lattes this one might be worth seeking out, and its a nice getaway from the normal myriad of pumpkin and holliday beers, but maybe this one just isnt' for me. I can drink one and wouldn't want to finish the other five of the six pack.
