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.

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.

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.
