This week’s brew was an impulse buy:  I liked the fact it was in a can, I liked the name, and I was intrigued by the combination of a porter with Chai Tea.  We drank Yabba Dhaba Chai Tea Porter from James Page Brewery.

Shane and Ryan were both a bit scared of the Chai Tea beer.  But once we drank it they were rather surprised.  This beer comes off with some nice ginger spices up front with a hint of cinnamon.  The tea gives it a nice clean finish without being sweet.  And after a bit, a hint of vanilla starts to make itself known.  It has a crisp mouth feel, there’s very little carbonation and very little after taste.  This was a surprisingly good beer.

Shane’s Rating:  6.0

Ryann’s Rating:  6.5

My Rating:  8.0

Shane ended up pairing this up with a new sandwich combo.  Sausage sandwich, topped with Italian beef, and BBQ sauce.  This is a winning combo.
