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.

Nice roasted aroma and dark body. It has a realtively thick light brownish head that laces the glass as it goes down. Itís very similar to an oatmeal stout with the addition of coffee. Iím not even sure what chicory tastes like, but there is some roasted character apart from the coffee beans which must be the chicory. I very good brew from Dogfish Head.

GABF 2002: Booo, weak. Barely dark brown in colour. Pretty bland. Slightly roasted flavour, but not really.

Dark brown, almost black, tan head. Big coffee aroma, a bit of grapes, smells a bit like a coffee/chocolate candy. Chocolate flavor, the chicory shows up mostly in the finish. It gets rounder as it warms up. Donít drink it too cold but do drink it. Itís worth it.

This is a decent beer. I was amazed at how smooth it tasted given its intimidating color and complexity. I guess I just prefer something hoppier.

Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is black (but not opaque). Aroma is moderately hoppy (pine, grapefruit), moderately malty (roasted grain, mild coffee, dark chocolate), with light notes of licorice and smoke. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately bitter, moderately acidic. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, moderately astringent. Hoppy, sour, and astringent stouts just arenít my bag.

No head, but what do you expect from a bottled coffee stout?

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2003 This beer rocks! If you like hearty stouts, it doesn't get much better than this. Don't let the 'chicory' fool you, this is not a rauchbier.
