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.

Muddy; slightly burgundian brown; chocolatey, fudgey, some nuts; a little bit chewy, like munching on chocolate malts.

Has a very dark brown color and a roasted smell. Taste is of course roasted, but it finishes very smooth with mild bitterness. Overall one of the better stouts that I have had.

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!

Radek Kliber (6681) - 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.

Might have been a mistake to taste this next to the Bell’s Kalamazoo Stout because it comes across a bit weaker or watered down comparitively; light tan head, full appearance. Couldn’t 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.
