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: FEB 9, 2003 Pours a dark black. Strong aroma and taste of chocolate and coffee. Has a strong odor of chocolate and fruitiness a la raisins. Slight hop bitterness within the finish. Good beer.

Dark brown, chocolate malt aroma. . . sweet raisins and burnt chocolate combine to offer a thin sugary mouth feel. Mild toffee, hops and coffee all balanced extremely well. Great brew from Dogfish Head. . .

Not as dark as most stouts. Poured with a big head, again not very stout like. The label says bone white head, what is that supposed to mean, bleached white or that fake anatomy bone color from the models, an ominous beginning for this beer. Aroma is odd some coffee but mainly fruity, like a English Pale Ale, not a harmonious mix. Taste is light, light chocolate, light coffee, mainly fruity. Overall this is a drinkable beer for people who like that novelty stuff, like ketchup on ice cream. Nothing I would drink again.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 31, 2003
Very dark brown body with red accents topped with a medium thick to thick head with good lace. Sweet malty aroma with slight fruity hoppy accents. Slightly sweet malt flavor with fruity accents and a touch of coffee. Full bodied and smooth.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2003
This beer poured a nice dark reddish brown, almost black color with an off white colored head that lasted faintly throughout the beer. The taste was roasty, with hints of coffee, and what I assume is chicory. A very good stout, almost as thin as a porter, but still an absolute outstanding beer. Seek this beer out and enjoy as it is one of the very best porter/stouts that I have come across.

Nothing bad about this beer but not that special either. Weak head and aftertaste. Bland flavor and pretty syrupy.

rodolito (163) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 23, 2003
Rich coffee and roasted barley aroma with some chocolate notes as it warmed. A blackish color (ruby when lighted from behind) with a medium thickness tannish white head that was short lived. Sweet, roasted flavors with lots of coffee and some chicory. A light bitterness and acidity. Too thin for my tastes but enjoyed drinking it.

1/19/03: bottle. small head, eventually pretty flat looking, with no real lacing. dark- brown to black color. light coffee smell with small hints of hops and even cinnamon. coffee flavors with some chocolate and bitter tones. i was hoping to notice more evidence of chicory.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2003
Deep brown color with a thin but persistent tan head.
Smells like coffee and alcohol (isopropyl).
Malty and big considering the OG. Maltiness at first with a coffee finish.
Nicely carbonated but prickly on the tongue.
