theres still a lot of cool beer around town from gabf week, and this is one of them. a real neat brown ale that only uses the chai as an accent flavor to its dry cocoa powdery chocolate malt base, rather than as a dominant flavor at the expense of the beer character. good proportions on it, but the chai spice is cool. i get cardamom and ginger and even a slight white pepper prickle, but all wrapped up in a cozy fuller bodied brown ale that is a darn good base beer anyway. both surprising and impressive how dry it is, and how the chai doesnt overtake the beer. the high level of bubbles really brings out the more spicy side of the chai. not herbal like tea, and not spicy like a chili beer, its just a unique complexion to add to a beer in general, but the brown ale is a nice platform. it might get lost in a stout and overtake a lighter style. well done from avery, who seems to be on a real roll with cool new beer lately.
