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.

Had this on a special cask. They primed it with maple syrup and then "Dry Hopped" honey rum oak chips. Actually it was better than regular way. Took away some of the chicory flavor, which I find to be a little overpowering sometimes. This was nice and smooth and it finished with trh rum flavor.

An enjoyable drink! I have no idea what the chicory does for the drink, but it does have a nice unique taste. Sweet taste, but little head. I will drink it again!

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2005 (11/1/05) Minimal tan head atop brown-black body. Aroma is moderately sweet, coffee. Taste is moderately sweet, sugared coffee, some leather, chocolate, light cinnamon, burnt. Medium body. (6/3/6/3/12)

(12/14/02) Dark brown red with small tan head. Aroma is coffee, fairly roasty. Flavor is somewhat sweet and definitely coffee/roasty. Palate is very smooth, but a little thin. (6/4/6/3/12).

Might have been a mistake to taste this next to the Bellís Kalamazoo Stout because it comes across a bit weaker or watered down comparitively; light tan head, full appearance. Couldnít quite taste any licorice but I think the flavor of this offering is pretty unique - kinda organic or herby or something. Just completely different from most of the sweet stouts out there, but still really good.

Sweet flavor. Lots of fruit - grapes and plums. Nice roasted malt flavors. A little thin.

A dark brown color with hints of smoke, toffee, coffee, and chocolate in the smell. A sweet smoky taste with a bit of coffee/toffee too, ends smooth with a smokey aftertase of hicory and nuts. A good brew by Dogfish.

Sweet roasted coffee and chocolate flavors abound. Well, not quite coffee - maybe thatís the chicory. Long sweet finish. Body is too thin, but otherwise this is a nice light stout.

This has a lot of dark roasted coffee in the aroma and flavor, with a very smokey, lingering finish. There isnít a lot of body, in fact, itís downright watery, which is disappointing. This is my first dogfish head beer, and Iím not all that impressed. Iíve got some more to try; hopefully theyíre better. [RE-RATE] I had to raise this from a 3.2. I still think itís a bit watery, but the flavor and finish are really starting to grow on me. Much more impressive on second tasting.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2003 Rating #1 - Bottle (7 4 6 3 15). Black color with a brown head. Hard to figure out what the chicory does in this beer. The sweet flavors come through well especially in the finish as does the coffee. A slight syrup feel. Rating #2 - Tap @ Toronado (7 3 8 3 16). Black color. A cherry and wood aroma, with a flavor that is defined by chocolate and malts. Somewhat tart.

I like the finish of this beer, but it lacks fullness to the flavor. It doesnít smell like much either, but thereís something inviting about the smooth carbonation and hints of coffee.
