Spice beers are tricky — they either work or they don’t. Terra Firma’s Tai Chi Seven Spice Stout is one that works very well, containing a chai-like flavor and aroma, accompanied by a variety of spices that wake up the senses. Fairly easy-drinking despite the 8% ABV — a perfect example of when sweet and savory work.
