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.

jbak (111) - Torrington, Connecticut, USA - DEC 28, 2002
Coffee and chocolate aroma, typical stout black opaque coloring. Thin head, with decent lacing. Roasty chocolate taste, just a little hop bitterness. Body is medium, a little thin for the style. Again, a very drinkable beer from dogfish Head.

Nose of smoke, chocolate, coffee, charcoal. Medium bodied, maybe a tad too thin. Roasty tasting with some hops at the finish.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2002
Dark brown w/ almost no head but decent lacing. Intense chocolate fudge aroma w/ mild coffee & chicory notes. Full bodied, silky mouthfeel. Rich, earthy chocolate & coffee flavour w/ notes of licorice. Long bitter finish.

nlanza (18) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2002
Great flavor -- the chicory and coffee and licorice make it complex and interesting without being overpowering. Unfortunately, it’s a bit thin and not nearly as chewy as I’d like in a stout.

Darkover (1516) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2002
Dark brown color, almost no head. When first opened smells like wine, but then the chocolate and roast come out. Very thin body. Sweet roasted flavor with a smokey finish

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2002
Dark brown color. Coffee notes, Nestle Quik chocolate hints and fudgey nose. Body is mildly choclatey with coffee notes and light hops. Very nice, mild stout, didn’t quite get get all the notes listed in the description but a nice beer nonetheless.

JoeM500 (1905) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - DEC 18, 2002
Coffee and chocolatey goodness. Sweet and bitter all at once. Just slightly watery, but enough flavor in the front and mid to make up for it. Even my Mom took a sip without making her usual ’ewww...beer’ face.

Oakes (12551) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 17, 2002
Muddy; slightly burgundian brown; chocolatey, fudgey, some nuts; a little bit chewy, like munching on chocolate malts.

Radek Kliber (6457) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 16, 2002
Very dark brown, small head. Deep, deep coffee aroma. Nicely complex roast, bitterness, interesting aftertaste. Strong beer that leaves mark on your aftertaste. If you like INKA coffee you would like this one. Secret ingredient - chicory.
