Im not a big fan of flavors of beers but this one was quite nice. The first thing that hit me with the chai tea aroma and it wasnt bad. Good combination, good palette, a lot of good balance between the mall and the hops. Overall not bad

12 oz. bottle, thanks to Ian! Dark, opaque, brown color, with no head; just a few bubbles. The aroma is mild roast coffee, chocolate syrup, cinnamon and ginger, and a touch of pine-ish hops. Sweet and lightly roasty, with a mild bitterness that gives it pretty good balance. Medium to heavy body, malty, a bit dry, and clean. This is a pretty simple stout, and the spices dont overwhelm. Drinks quite easily.

Nice deep dark brown color and tannish head. Heavy aromas of chocolate and coffee. Sweet and creamy chocolate and coffee flavors with a nice touch of earth at the end.

Just bad. Bitter strongness not sweet light chai. But mostly bitter off flavors. Nice head. I dumped it.

Pour is a black with no head at all. Aroma is a decent almost decadent chai tea with some silky malt. Flavor is more chai spice with a bitter bakers chcocolate. Not much of a sweet lactose here this brewer went all in with the chai spices. Not as lactose forward as other milk stouts but this does have a chai spice to it.

Shared can. Pretty decent for the category. The typical milk stout sweetness is tempered by the chai spices. Lots of cardamom, some cinnamon. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Good winter sipper. Enjoyable.

Tap @ Brixx Knoxville - pours pitch with a tan head, some lacing on the glass. I love masala chai mixes so I had high hopes for this beer, but it falls short. Im getting some cinnamon and some peppery notes on top of the sweetness of the stout, but its very subdued. Im not getting the clove or the anise that you might see in a common chai spice blend. Drinkable, but Im disappointed.

Draft at Brixx Knoxville. Pours black with a khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Slight cinnamon and lactose notes on nose along with roasted malt. I get the lactose on the tongue but not much. Solid but not spectacular.

Draft... Pours black with a brief, khaki head. Aroma-wise, Red Brick is trying to subtle me to death here. I LOVE chai. LOVE IT! I wanted this beer to be the dark ale equivalent. I Wanted in-my-face chai. Nope. Hardly any chai spices in the aroma or flavor. The base beer is roasty and charred accompanied by a hint of blackstrap molasses. Medium to full-bodied and mildly oily with stinging carbonation. The flavor is espresso-roast coffee and black patent malt. This isnt all that sweet. In fact, theres near-perfect balance here. Crisp, carbonic, dry finale. Average stout. This doesnt have the body of an oatmeal stout or the sweet flavor of a milk stout. Cleanly brewed, but meh.

Pours a deep oily black, with a light head that reduces quickly to a tiny ring of bubbles. The nose is of nice pie spices. Flavors of chai tea are there, indeed, and mix with a semi-sweet dark chocolate back. The finish closes in on the warm pie spice notes. Luckily, the lactose is held in check to let the spiced-tea accents work well with the chocolate and light roasted malt contingencies. Medium-bodied, with a complex flavor palate, this goes down well in the cold months of winter, or drinkable enough with enough activity in the mouth to last all year round. Decent experiment here!

12 ounce bottle purchased at Total Wine Pembroke Pines, FL for $5.99/6-pack. Very good.
