What the brewer says

“Tra­di­tional Chai spices of cin­na­mon, green car­damom, black pep­per, gin­ger, nut­meg, and vanilla blend seam­lessly with Yeti’s rich, roasted malt back­bone.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “All of the chai spices with a touch of lemon cit­rus. Light choco­late, pep­per, and lemon­grass as it starts to warm with a touch of cof­fee spici­ness.” Fla­vor: “Spicy choco­late with com­plex roast as­trin­gency, bit­ter dark choco­late, light milk sweet­ness, and a touch of al­co­hol warm­ing at the end. Light mush­room, cof­fee fla­vor in the mid­dle of the sip that blends well with the chai spici­ness. Well bal­anced al­co­hol warm­ing to­ward the end of the sip that leads in the af­ter­taste. Fin­ish is choco­late, cof­fee, and tea spici­ness.” Over­all: “As enig­matic as the spec­trum of chai is, you might hes­i­tate to dive in to an un­known chai beer. This one is worth the risk.”
