Nice flavour combination with the chai coming through nicely on the nose and surprisingly forward on the tongue. The vanilla is more subtle and comes through on the finish. Classic Dragons Milk with subtle barrel presence creates a base that pairs well with the vanilla chai additions. Fantastic.

12 oz bottle.
Pours with a good beige head over an opaque near black body.
I'm a big fan of Dragon's Milk but not of chai. Not surprisingly then, I like this less than the original and some of the other variants. It is, nonetheless, very good, and it's almost exactly what I would expect. There's an obvious but not overpowering contribution of chai spices and vanilla, with the base Dragon's Milk clearly present.
