On tap @ Avery. Dark brown pour with a khaki head. Ginger overwhelms the nose. Sage, roast, and cocoa powder. Mild chalk, lots of herbs, and a subtle sweetness. Flavor is all ginger up front. Herbal sage on the middle, some roast, toast, and bread sweetness. A bit chalky on the finish.

Dogbrick (10714) - 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.

kermis (9071) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2013
Draft sampled at the brewpub. Pours hazy brown with a small tan head. Aroma is strongly herbal, sage reminding me of stuffing with a Sunday roast. Also strong ginger. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation. It’s Sunday roast chicken dinner beer! (With ginger). Brilliant!

"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."

jmgreenuk (6746) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 9, 2013
On tap at Avery. Poured a murky dark brown with a thin broken off white head. The aroma is big ginger and spice. The flavour is medium bitter with a spicy weak liqourice fruit palate. A really unusual beer which is really refreshing and if you like spice you will love this.

(Draught) cloudy medium brown, creamy tan head with nice lacing. Nose of chai, nutty, raisin, great spice balance. Taste is even better, chai but balanced without the overpowering allspice, raisin, clove, great nutty and spicy palate finish.

Big chai aroma here. Sweet and rich, and very full flavored for a brown ale. There is all chai spice in the flavor, as well as some malt. Good.
