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.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2003 Dark black body with a medium tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee beans. I thought the coffee flavors were not overpowering and very well balanced. Also a slight sweetness in the finish. Not bad

Dark brown stout. Smokey with slight chicory nose. Mild roasted coffee flavor, with a little touch of sourness. Dry bitter ending. Not as rich as I would expect, everything about the aroma and the taste is faint.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2003 The nose was really good but the taste was a bit watery and the body was lean, Somewhat little aftertaste. But a nice drink though.

slightly tan head with fine to medium carbonation, somewhere between semi and totally opaque dark black with nice lace. kinda light on the aroma, good flavor with very little nut, but definetly the thich coffe maple flavor and a nice finish of hops to balance of the sweetness of the initial taste.

A deep black with a tan small frothy head. A little malty aroma with some sweetness and a hint of vanilla. The flavor is not real strong, but smooth with a coffee finish.

This is one beautiful stout. It pours dark with a dark brown head. This definitely smells and tastes like coffee, with a little roasty, smokiness. After a while though, the coffeeness overwhelms me (not a coffee fan). I usually only drink one of these at a time, but it's definitely worthwhile if you're a stout fan.

(bottle) I'm not the biggest fan of stouts. But for some reason this one I quite liked. It doesn't have a strong flavor or amazing character or anything, but it was really a nice tasting beer.

Eclipse black color. Small head. Aroma is coffee. A medium bodied stout. Roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Boy, oh boy, is there coffee in this one. Chicory and Mexican coffee blend with the malts for a very interesting, intense coffee flavor. Hops are slightly bitter and a touch on the grapefruity side. Well balanced. The coffee flavor predominates, but it’s not very overpowering. A nice beer. Very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter

desurfer (1246) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2003
UPDATED: APR 28, 2003 Nearly opaque dark body, small tan head. Coffee and chocolate in the aroma. Light palate and flavor, no hops evident. Decent stout (I would classify it as a porter), but too watery for my taste.
