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.

Decent brew. Certainly worth trying anyways. Just a little lacking all around.

A descent stout, but it pales in comparison to the world wide stout. This beer is easier to find and worth drinking when it is accessible. Tastes more like coffee than perhaps any other stout I have tried.

Deep stout with an appearance and viscosity of motor oil thats been drained from an engine after 10,000 miles. Bitter flavor from the hops is prevelent. Reminds me of an Imperial Stout. You can taste the roasted coffee and chicory. Robust finish that lasts very long. Initial pour create carbonation that slowly disipates. Becomes smoother the longer you drink it. I like it because the sweeteness is not overbearing.

No light penetrates this mother fucker with a reddish tint that you can only see at the bottom of the glass. Aroma is COFFEE. Dominating coffee flavor followed by a let onset of oats. Thin and not much going on here.

Pours with a good-sized tan head, dark-brown body with hints of red, some chocolate in the nose. The coffee comes through very well in the flavor and lingers in the finish. It has a bit of a metallic finish which disappears after a few sips, with a fairly creamy mouthfeel. I enjoyed this one; it had a good coffee flavor with a well-balanced bitterness; the low ABV relative to the flavor is a plus in my book.

Highly carbonated--having a rootbeer appearance with a cherry brown fluffyish head. Nutty aroma (must be the chicory) with a cherry tinge. Low roasted taste with the underpinning of cherrywood flavor (chicory?) and a slightly dry finish. The last sip contained the best taste--detectable coffee and chicory. A smooth, but not creamy stout that is a good example of this style.

Do you like coffee? No, do you REALLY like coffee? If you like coffee more than beer, and still like beer a lot, then this is the beer for you. Coffee explosion. Fairly complex taste that is best described in the commercial description. Iím not sure I like it, the taste kind of overwhelmed me towards the bottom of the bottle. Considerably cheaper than WWS though: $1.60 to $8.70.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2003 Re-rate: Finally made it down to their pub & had this on draft, black in color, very rich flavors, full bodied, great balance, coffee undertones in the taste & aroma, very excellent stout

A very smooth and enjoyable Stout. Toasted malts evident, and the coffee is present at acceptable quantities. Nice mouthfeel. What the hell is chicory and what does it taste like?

Was this ever a mood alterer,wait, thereís St. Johnís Wort in it? A non-stimulating entry from a brewery which seems to ahve invented the kitchen sink brewing philosophy.
