COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Chicory Stout is a rich, dark beer made with a touch of roasted chicory, organic Mexican coffee, St. John's Wort, and licorice root. It is brewed with roast barley, crystal malt and oats and hopped just right with Glacier hops. We use fair trade Organic Mexican Coatepec beans roasted to our specifications by Notting Hill Coffee Roastery in Lewes, DE.

True-to-style dark color; small head. Roasted chocolate malt and coffee bean aroma. Taste was nicely balance by the hops, with just a touch of sweetness. Interesting brew.

Both the beer and the head were noticably lighter than the other stouts I've been tasting. There's also a sharpness present in the flavor that I haven't tasted yet. Is it the chicory. Whatever, I think it'd be stronger if it weren't for the oatmeal. This was a good stout, if only because it stands out from others I've tried. Nothing here I didn't like.

Deep brown with slight tan head. Nose if full of black coffee with hint of licorice. Initial taste is smokey with burnt character. Licorice in middle. Bitterness rises in latter half of swallow, but does not overstay its welcome, and mediates into a nice burnt aftertaste. Slightly tangy.

Suttree (5266) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 8, 2003
Brown with a tan head. Smells like a latte. Full, rich palate. Assertive coffee flavors throughout, along with some oakiness, maybe. pleasent bitterness and a clean finish.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2003 Definite coffee aroma and flavor. Not bad, but still not my favorite stout.

Very little head, if any. Not much lacing with this brew. Coffee aroma. It had a brown body. There was bitterness noted with this brew. All in all, not a bad brew.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured all but no head. What head it had was made up of medium sized brown bubbles. It had a strong malt aroma and an opaque black brown body. It was smooth initially with a very thick mouth feel and a slight bitterness in its coffee malt finish. This is a very delectable brew. One I would very much like to have again.

Very interesting flavor. I like how the chicory flavor is infused with the coffee, choclolate, and hops. Although it was not as strong flavored as I prefer, I really like how smoothy it went down. It disappeared from my glass rather quickly. I give it a thumbs up. As for appearance, it is a dark brown/black with a coppery-tan head. Looks as delicious as it tastes.

Dark brown in colour. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, malts. Flavour of roasted malts, slight coffee with a little bit of smoke. Finishes a little bit thin but had a bit of a coffee kick to it. Thanks ciderguy.

This beer pours a very dark brown color with a medium off-white creamy head and moderate lacing on the glass. The aroma is of coffee and maybe a hint of chocolate and possibly some roasted malt. The taste was not to my liking because I am not a fan of coffee. But this is a good beer and a very solid stout. If you like coffee and you like stouts, this beer will probably please you - but because of my dislike for coffee, I have to give it just a moderate grade.
