Dogbrick (10872) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2015
Sample at the new brewery. Cloudy brown color with a medium khaki head that diminishes steadily to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of chai spices and malt. Light-bodied with a nice spiced chai tea character and notes of biscuit malt and chocolate. The finish is sweetly spiced with a chai tea aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

"This one’s all about the chai, so i imagine its love or hate, though why someone who doesn’t like chai is drinking this is beyond me. solid body for 5%, wonderfully spicy chai aroma and flavor...very well integrated with the lightly roasted brown. Sooo nice."

On tap at brewery. Aroma is dominated by chai with a light roast and nutty character. No hops or alcohol present in aroma. Pours a slightly cloudy brown with some ruby highlights and a thin tan head with average retention. Light lacing. Flavor has a more noticeable malt character than the aroma. Light roast, moderate chocolate and nuttiness. Hints of dark caramel and toffee. Moderately strong chai notes but they come in mid palate so you can still get the malt notes. No hop flavor and light bitterness. Fairly sweet. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall better than I was expecting. While the chai is strong, especially in the aroma, it doesn’t completely overwhelm the malt in the flavor.

On tap at the Avery tap takeover at Pub 17 in Denver, CO during GABF week 2013. Brown pour with a thin khaki head. Aroma of roasted coffee, light chocolate, and chai tea. The chai is prominent in the flavor with some added light chocolate and floral hops. Some spiciness from the chai on the finish. Decent overall.

Nellie (349) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Smells like star anise mostly, cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. Hoppy flavors balanced with the sweetness of the spices. Raisins and bread. A little thin on the mouthfeel but other than that, great flavor.
