Can. Pours brownish. Aroma is spicy gingerbread. Taste is sweet spicy almost gingerbread like. Thin. Not bad but not my thing.

Mind-blowing. This beer probably is destined for the parking lot at a jam band show, but that doesn’t tarnish anything for me. Very drinkable, refreshing, and delicious. Also blends well with a variety of food flavored.

2/5/16. 12oz can from Hy Vee, Moline. Black pour under a small khaki head, mild lacing. Faint aroma, light spice and roasted malts. I’m actually digging the flavor at this moment, rich, a touch of sweet vanilla, chai spice, lingering vanilla and a bit of chocolate. Not bad!

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.
