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.

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.

Huge head on this brew...lost about a quarter of it to the floor. At least my dog got to enjoy some. Nice rich aroma. Good roasted flavor with a hint of the chicory and coffee. An enjoyable stout.
