Can. Pours a near clear deep amber brown with a tan head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma is full of sweet dark grains with a good amount of marshmallow and chai coming through. Flavor is similar with sweetness from chai, dark grains and marshmallow, but the are counter balanced by a bit of roast.

12oz can 4/6/14 (Binny’s Downers Grove Mix A Six)-42° in English Pint-Pours a dark brown with ruby tints and a small off white head. Aroma of sweetness, chocolate and a mix of things I can’t describe. Taste of chocolate, spices, cinnamon, and ginger. This light bodied brew is a mix of mess but is easy drinking and something different.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a dark reddish brown, almost black with a good head & lace.
The aroma is chocolate & potpourri. Gingery, clove forward, weird.
Holy wow is that one sweet spice forward mess... Cloves & ginger.... Mild cinnamon.... Light roastiness, massively cloying.... Silly.

This beer is pretty much the least surprising thing ever. It tastes like sweet chari tea with a porter or brown ale hanging in the background. Given that neither of the two halves of this dubious combo is particularly good, it is not particularly good overall. If you are looking for a beer that’s sweet and sticky and tastes like cloves, you are in luck but if you are a regular person, you might want to pass.

Cinnamon aroma and flavor. Slight chai flavor as well. Cinnamon finish. Not a huge fan, could only drink just one.

12 oz can. Nice rich dark amber pour with a smaller cream-colored head. Aroma is cardamom, pumpkin spices, cinnamon, ginger, clove - pretty cool. Finishes a bit dry like a tea. Taste is pretty good but not quite as interesting and the aroma. Not bad.

12 oz. can pours a dark brown with big tan head and good lacing. Aroma is full of spices (ginger, pumpkin, mint, cardamom - I’ve never had chai tea) and nutty. Taste is sweet all the way through. Body is medium with slight carbonation. I wouldn’t have guessed this is a porter, but it’s interesting, refreshing, and easy to drink.

A great tasting fusion of the beer and chai. Not overly heavy chai taste but a good balance. Very smooth. Appearance is a very dark misguided look. A must try at least once.
