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.

Color was very dark brown and had a solid froth of light tan hues. Smell was nice, little smokey, some hop presence, cocoa, and grainy wild rice maybe. Taste was a little watery and not solid enough for a stout for me. It has some smokey grain, coffee thing going on, nice hints, but not enough for an eyebrow raise. Felt a bit creamy and finished a tad lighter then I was expecting. Some bitterness from the hops and a hint of smoked grain or cocoa lingers. Its just below a good stout in my book. Could be bolder and thicker. Actually wouldn't serve bad for a summer stout.

Nice black color, with a little nice swirling white head. Smell has notes of coffee in it mostly. Palate just seems to tamed. The dry part of the beer is present, but still has a thin mouthfeel to it.

A typical micro dry stout. Very dark, with a nice coffee flavor. Goes down pretty smooth. All in all, a pretty good stout.

Dark, dark, malty amber with an alcohol nose - like whisky? Unusual. Let me just say that my initial reaction was "ooh, aah, huh?, ick!" The chicory takes a bit of getting used to, but after a couple of sips, it's really quite good.

Deep brown. Nose of amaretto, raisins, rum, with a hearty wheat character. Lots of carbonation. Full feel in the mouth, but has an abrasive old leather flavor mixed in with the coffee and malt. Palate is wet, slightly syrupy. But feeling old, damp, and empty at the same time.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2006 POur is a black with a mild tan to light brown head. Lacing is very nice. Aroma is that of coffee. The start is a hit of coffee taste, which lasts and lingers throughout. Not very complicated, but a good taste. The palate is a moderate to heavy. I would recommend this beer to those who are big coffee drinkers. Although, this beer tastes good, I feel it definitely lacks some sophistication and it is too straightforward. A decent brew, though.

Dark body and head. Smooth flavor. Interesting tastes of coffee, hops and roasted chocolate bordering on the tasteful side of peculiar. This stout really had my brain and taste buds going.

Who needs a latte, drink this. Jet black color, big dirty white head. Very coffee-like. Sweetness in flavor. The coffee and bitterness is a little overwhelming. Might be a good dessert beer. Blend with vanilla ice cream? I'm getting a headache just drinking it.

i have no idea whether they really did put all those silly ingredients in or they just put it on the label to get chicory fans to buy it. what is chicory anyway? anyway, nothing too complex and extraordinary here, it tastes like a classy dry stout.lovely aroma of deep malt and coffee. flavour is full of dry malt, upon which is layered just enough coffee, just enough leafy hops, and just enough quenching acidity. very dry, just how i like my stouts.

No "Bone white head", more like a tan/brown head, that dissipates quickly.Black/opaque. Roasty, chocolatey nose, some soapiness alsao.Med/full body. Good mouthfeel. Coffee flavors coming through along with some roastiness. Licoricey notes also in the dry finish. Ok brew
