THIS IS HOW YOU DO CHAI BEER, GODD***IT. It’s well worth the mildly embarrassing name.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Dark burgundy, opaque, with burnt orange edges. Half a finger of bubbly head the color of, well, chai, becomes as thin ring before too long. Spices come through in the aroma, for sure. Cinnamon, nutmeg, anise, clove, toast. Background of sourdough. Kind of funky behind the sharp spice. Heavy chai flavor. Soft bready base, lots and lots of cinnamon, ginger and clove. Tannic. Body is thinner than I’d like. Mild CO2, fizzy, peppery and bitter from the spices. The best display of chai flavor I’ve experienced in a beer. Bold yet balanced, intense yet drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can - good size foamy head, almost black color, big time tea & cinnamon aroma and flavor, some mild other spices, roasty malt backbone, definitely a little different, not really my cup of tea (no pun intended!) but I guess it does hit what the brewer was going for

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 12 oz can from Syosset Beverage, 3/21/15
Aroma: Strong chai tea and spice aroma, ginger, cinnamon, and clove, and it totally works
Appearance: Pours a murky light brown color. almost muddy, small beige head, drippy lace
Flavor: Slightly sweet and full of chai tea spice, works much better than you’d expect
Palate: The body is medium, leaning light, super drinkable, with an average carbonation
I’m shocked at how much I liked this one, but it totally works. Great spice forward beer. Tons of flavor. I gotta say, this beer should have a much higher score than it does. I’m not going with the crowd on this one at all.

Lots of ginger and cinnamon on the nose. More ginger and cinnamon in the taste with a decent Porter base. Interesting beer but damn drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Black with small tan head. Aroma of herbal notes (chai), clove, cinnamon, and roasted malt. Medium body, bold chai, cinnamon, malt sweetness, and roasted malt. Too much chai that overpowers the porter.

Once again, I really like this brew it is unique and different. Is it from artificial flavor... I would be more disappointed but I don’t know. Aroma and taste is chai like with a nice porter backbone. Malty toasted sweet A nice beer. Nice lasting head.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark, dirty brown with a short, quickly dissipating dark caramel colored head. Cherry Coke and horehound candy nose. Moderately thick. My wife took a taste and says, "Wow! That’s very Chai!" Molasses, horehound, Cherry Coke, and faint cinnamon.

I can’t even describe the aroma. Tastes like a gingerbread cookie dipped in coffee with hints of metal. Interesting but not great.
