Poured a black color with aromas of tea, earth, light roast and a touch of lactose. Flavors are the same decent milk stout up front but a weird tea and chai aftertaste. That mix did not work for me.

INteresting taste there. Very nice taste of stout and fine thick features. Some weird thin tea hint was.

Clear but so dark it is opaque in the glass. Decent head.
Coffee in. the nose and, to a lesser extent, the flavor too.
Flavorful, even for style. Sweet up front with a mildly bitter finish. Nutmeg and, I think, some other spices.
O: a spiced? milk stout. Cross between a winter warmer and a milk stout? Worth a try for sure.

Pours brown with a brown head and aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and spices. Taste is rosaty and smooth, of roasted malt, milk chocolate, spices, vanilla and chai notes with a spicy, burnt finish.

Black pour with a thin sticky beige head. The nose is great, with sweet chocolaty nuttiness, caramel, and something like pumpkin and something herbal. Taste is sweet and earthy with a roasted caramel and creamy tones, and a little pumpkin spice...or something like it. Really tasty.

Pint on tap. Black with a lasting disc of cream and nice lace. Nose is milk chocolate and coffee. Flavor is dark chocolate, sour cream, vanilla and coffee. Medium body is mostly smooth with a medium carbonation and a little to the sweet side, but pretty well balanced by the roast and sourish lactose. Not much chai tea here, which is nice.

An interesting take on the style, with light cinnamon notes and hints of vanilla chai. Creamy body. Flavors aren’t all right, but it’s pretty easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a dark black color with no real head. Nose is spicy and malty.
Taste is sweet with a strong chai flavor, drinks quite easily. Finish is sweet with lingering spice and herbal flavors. Worth trying but not for a repeat. Quaff Score 7 / 10
