3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours brown with an off-white head. The aroma is spice heavy (of course) with an Indian flair to it and includes cinnamon and clove jumping out. There is a smooth roastiness lingering there as well. It has a medium body with a low amount of carbonation. The flavor starts out with lots of spice, but not as heavy as the aroma. It has light sweetness, smooth earth, nutmeg and spicing I associate with Christmas. The finish is dry, powdery and spicy. The stout qualities play second fiddle and a nice backing to a solid spice ale.

February 5, 2014 on tap at iTap. Very dark maybe black pour with some head. Aroma was chai, malt and oats/grain. Taste was consistent with aroma, but the chai was very strong. Medium body and relatively smooth drinking.

2/3/2014. On tap. Pours black with a tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, chocolate and spices. Very balanced spicy flavors, rich chocolate and a light bitter finish. Not bad at all.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
It poured a dark almost black color with a small light tan head. The aroma was oily, rich, dark and of molasses. The taste was similar with a good oatmeal backbone and the 10 different spices prevailed. Very nice, would definitely have it again.
