On tap at Founders last week. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a moderate brown color with a good off-white head. Good collar. The nose carries a good amount of chai plus some semi-sweet brown malt. Good integration. Flavor is a bit chai-forward without the brown underneath. Medium, chewy body. Good brew.

Draft at Founders. Deep orange-red-brown body, thin buff head. Nose primarily of chai spices. Tannic body, spicy and slightly tart with tea leaves or granular tea, becoming sweeter and less tart with warmth.
