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.

I could drink this everyday...the coffee taste is great. This for breakfast would be a great way to start off the morning!! Very smooth and full of flavor...this is one of my absolute favorites!

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.

This stout uses coffee from Oby Lee- a wonderful roaster. You get a full taste of the coffee right from the start and it builds promisingly. Unfortunately it ends weakly and with disappointing body. Where did that great beginning go?

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2007 This is a pretty decent brew. My first from this brewery and it is unique. A little on the lighter side, yet is still had a chocolaty taste and a smooth, yet dry, finish.

The bottle says "beneath a bone white head" well, either bones aren’t the same color as I thought or I had a bad bottle because my head was pretty tan. Mostly diminishing head. Dark coffee color. Chocolatey in the begining followed by a woody/smokey middle followed by a coffee/acidic/bitter finish. This stout unrolls like a red carpet to movie premier along your tongue. Good complexity. I don’t typically like stouts, but this was a pleasant surprise.

tastes sweet. more of a choclate flavor than a coffe flavor. smooth and easy drinking for a stout. the chicory gives it a kind of woody flavor. interesting

Black, bubbly with a roasty aroma. This is really a great stout. I like the mix of roasted/coffee and sweeter flavors.

Burnt, wooden texture, delicious and crisp, black like my heart. A good brew to be enjoyed by any stout lover. My first sip was like doing a bag of coke. One line is just not enough and you cant resist a second and a third and a forth and a fifth. Oh my god. My heart is going to blow. Yummy, what am I talking about Ive never even done coke. Good beer, pick up a six pack, drink it, enjoy it, burry it in your backyard, walk fifty feet, and then teach the world how to dance. Well Im cutting out short because I have to go pick up a big bag o magic power. Wink. Wink. Hahahahahahahahahahahaha. Come on its a joke. Lighten up.
