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.

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 (1245) - 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.

A trifle lighter than I generally prefer my stouts. Nice nuttiness in the aroma with plenty of roasted notes. Chewy, with plenty of caramel and toffee tones. Nice hop tone, but could be a little stronger. Not my favorite stout, but well worth a shot.

Smooth crisp flavor, slightly charred. Faint aroma is pleasant. Somewhat creamy texture, with medium body.

raindog (560) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - MAR 30, 2003
Dark brown stout,with a tan,medium sized,head. It settles to a nice clingy,ring.Mainly aroma consists of the coffee,also scents of roast,oats,and substantial malt. Mouthfeel is decent and carbonation is not overdone.Creamy,malty,roasty flavors.The hops lead to the sweet,coffee finish.Coffee with cream lingers in the throat for minutes after swallowing.Why have I been passing this up for years?THe more I consumed it,the better I liked it.Perfect for the pupose of dessert.Thins out a little bit at the end.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2003
This beer poured a very dark amber, almost black color. It formed a foamy, light tan head that left circular lace as it subsided. A medium amount of carbonation was present. It had an aroma of malt, coffee and chocolate. The flavor was of malt, chocolate and bitter coffee. Or else that was the chicory. Not a bad beer but not one of the best ones. I know people who love it, but I think there are others that do this style better.

Indra (2686) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAR 27, 2003
Roasty, earthy, malty and lightly herbal aroma, faintly sweet with a hint of brown sugar and coffee. Ebony color with brown highlights and a subsiding head. Flavor is both complex and mild, with a multitude of malt flavors, licorice, cinnamon and roasted coffee, yet somehow retains a degree of subtlety. Medium bodied, very light and smooth palate.
