This exotic stout is a relative of Chocolate Sombrero, with the Mexican spices replaced by the flavors of chai tea: ginger, caramom, cinnamon and vanilla. Dear head banging craft beer drinkers, please remember, "Our love for you is like a truck... BERSERKER!"

Bottle. I a lot of the spice and a bit of chocolate in the nose. The flavor was totally dominated by the herbs followed be a hint of sweet stout. Maybe it will blend a bit with time.

12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with light head. Strong aromas of chai and dry winter spice overpowering everything else. Flavors spicy chocolate, roasted malts, ginger and allspice. Put off by the nose but yummy flavors.

exeter (511) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 28, 2016
Poured dark with a nice tan head and great lacing. Tastes of Vanilla, cinnamon, coffee, cocoa and of course chai. Nice and thick after aging for 5 months. Would have again as a sipping beer.

Dark and chewy. Very nice spicing. Sip it slowly, as it is hard to take in large amounts.

Bottle. Sweet vanilla and cinnamon aroma. Dark black stout appearance with a small brownish head. Vanilla, cinnamon, espresso coffee are present - quite sweet. Rich and full bodied with some warming alcohol sensations. Spicey notes in the finish. Enjoyable.

Aroma of chai, cardamom, cinnamon. Pours black with a thin, foamy tan head. Taste is chocolate, chai, vanilla, cinnamon and coffee. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation and a lingering chocolatey finish. Really enjoyed this one.

AWISLguy (2597) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2016
650ml bottle from Rayans in Andersonsville. Cellar aged 3 months. Very dark brown, almost black pour, with a bit of a tan head. Aroma has big holiday spices; ginger, nutmeg, allspice. Also there is bittersweet chocolate and caramel. Led by Christmas stuff. Taste is of bakers chocolate, ginger, other spices, caramel, and perhaps some chiles if squinting. The blend is solid and the body is medium-to-full. More carbonated than expected, with a bit of an alcohol presence. Finishes sweetly spicy, with some bitterness way back. Interesting to have a fuller bodied brew with this level of spice. It is fine, but not much of a fan. 13.4

Pretty good. Spices not as prevalent as I hoped. Overall, I hope that the spices would be more prevalent and balanced with the stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from the Craft Beer Advent Calendar
Black color, with medium sized brownish head. Lean sweetish Imperial Stout, less full bodied than expected, although the alcohol can be perceived; it has a good dark malt and chocolate character, with a dynamic berry vein.
Quite easy to drink despite the strength, and very enjoyable.

mcberko (14686) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2015
12 oz. bottle, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma is very spicy, with the chai tea spices upfront, especially cardamom and cinnamon. Flavour is more stout-ish, with notes of chai tea, cocoa and vanilla. Spicy, medium body, with a chocolatey and vanilla finish. Solid for what it is, but not really my thing.
