3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 7, 2014 Rerate: On tap at the brewery. One of the best offerings. I felt it was more in the 3.4-3.5 range this time around. Original: On tap at Barrels & Bottles. Black appearance with a small, dissipating head. Aroma is mostly tea, chocolate malts and light spices. Similar flavor, malty, rich and tasty with a lingering finish. Nice, creamy, milky mouth feel over a medium body and soft carbonation. Great flavor and feel, a nice offering. Original rating: 738514 3.7

My new favorite. This is a very complex stout. While it goes well with main fair the flavors really develop with deserts. I had it with a bananas and yogurt Indian dish at the Yak and Yetti and it was amazing. Again, this is a very complex and subtle stout, you must pay attention to the nuances and taste development with various foods.

Pretty cool one here. Chai is very noticeable in both aromas and flavors. Cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, definitely notice the lactose in the mouthfeel which is med-heavy.

Pint at the brewpub. I was expecting a very aggressive beer, but this is a medium-bodied, balanced sipper. The aroma has chai spice, without the ginger burn, more cinnamon. The lactose makes things sweet, but not over the top. Very slick palate. This sweet stout pairs well with the spicy, bold flavors of the food. It was enjoyable for the pint, but I would begin to lose my enthusiasm if I tried to drink much more than that.

Tap - you really need to love chai to enjoy this, as that character really takes over, especially the cardamom - thankfully, I do love chai - the sweetness is a bit high from the lactose, but it does also add a nice softness to the texture - flavors of cardamom, prune, chocolate - mild bitterness, with a lingering milk chocolate and cardamom finish.
