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.

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.

-Ale spiced with Chai Tea. Canned 08.03.17. Consumed 09.27.17. Duvel glass.

A: Beautiful dark reddish pour reminds me of the dark red leaves of autumn, perfectly fitting per style and intention. A large golden-tan head is two fingers high, foamy, and firm in structure, forming mountainous peaks. A glass smothering display of foam deposits on the vessel with full intention.

S: Sweet cola and caramel are first on the nose, sweet crystal malt, toasty munich are the base. The spicy chai tea really makes an impression, earthy fall leaves and fresh birch also give this a real fall/autumn impression.

T: Spicy cola and caramel syrup are the base flavor, sweet malting, with a the spiciness of the herbal chai tea adding highlights. Caramel bread, munich toastiness and chocolate add earthy appeal. Lightly toasted barley, herbal tea bitterness are nice, giving once again an earthy feel, while some cinnamon-honey adds sweetness.

M: Mouthful was soft and malty, tea like bitterness and soft carbonation gives this a relaxing feel. Spicy chai tea leave off the tongue.

O: A nice fall/autumn beer vibe that is a welcoming break from the usual pumpkin variety. The chai tea adds a nice spiciness and bitterness, perfectly fitting in with the fall weather while the multiple malt base of munich, chocolate, and caramel also gives an sweet feel and balance. Nice fall beer attributes, enjoyable, and a nice break from the usual pumpkin beers, something daring and different, and works and blends beautifully in the end.
