COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Chai Tea and Porter have finally hooked up. Why Not? Seriously bold flavors of Ginger, Cinnamon, Clove, Cardamom, Anise combined with a six-malt blend, make this a hands-down discovery in beer. What is a Dhaba, anyway? We’ll give you a hint, think of India.

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.

This seems a bit underrated. Its really heavy on the chai spices, lightly creamy, some cocoa, and very light roast. I enjoyed it.

mansquito (3676) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Peculier Pub, NYC can ($6): Pours brown with a tan head. Aroma is chai, sugar, and some light roasted malt. Taste and aroma are a combination of clove, ginger, and cinnamon. I don’t think I really detected any anise. In honesty, it doesn’t taste entirely like a chai... it is like the tastes of that thrown into a light porter. Meh.

bob_w (332) - new york, New York, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Super dark brown color, almost opaque. Healthy beige head. Allspice note in the aroma. Mild allspice/nutmeg, pumpkin pie-like aroma. Light-medium body. Fairly subtle for spice beer. Clean finish.

drpimento (2298) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Poured with a reasonable light tan head that lingers with a light cover, some lace and has an opaque black brown color. I don't pick up any of the spices in the aroma just basically Porter. I am not a chai tea drinker so I don't remember those flavors but the spices in this beer are reminiscent of holiday spices. To me they don't go so well together. The body is okay. This beer might be for some but not for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rareschepps (1) - Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2014 does not count
If you adore chai tea with milk, then you’ll love this beer. This porter blends perfectly with the chai tea flavors and spices and has a hint of creaminess.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Nice Porter pour, a deep brown body with a modest, creamy light brown head. The aroma is strong with the Chai Tea (not a real favorite), almost completely masking the scents from the dark malt. In the flavor, the malt comes across as lightly toasted, but the rest is about the tea, followed by a light ashy bitterness. Okay, but (ouch) not really my cup of tea.

Ughsmash (7203) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Canned. Poured medium sienna with a uniform toasted beige head. The aroma picked up sweeter tea, nutty notes, and light biscuit, with vanilla and cocoa accents. The flavor found somewhat tart tea upfront, with vanilla, caramel, and nutty notes following.. almost pumpkin pie-y spices from the tea on the slightly grainy finish. Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation.. OK feel.. solid brew.
