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.

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.

Black color, somewhat thinner than I expected. Good coffee flavor, I am not sure what St. Johnís Wort taste like.

St. Johnís Wort in a beer? Lord knows I can use more of that though... Anyway, this is a good tasting stout, a little smoky, and some coffee taste, which I generally donít like (Iím not a coffee drinker) but works in this beer. Probably because it does not have a chocolate taste to go with it, it is more dry in taste then a typical coffee/chocolatey tasting stout.

smokey, both in aroma and taste. The head fizzled out quickly. Licorice comes out a bit after it warms. Iím not sure Iíd classify this as a sweet stout. I thought it finished somewhat dry.

Smoky, earthy aroma - roasted malts. Dark brown-black with off white head. Medium watery body with light fizzy character. Taste of roasted malts, coffee/chicory, herbs. Finish of smoke and nuttiness. A bit tangy. Sweet nutty after with a unique flavor for a stout that I canít quite finger.

GPyott (67) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 19, 2002
A great black and tan pour. Starts off bold and strong with an excellent coffee roasted oatmeal body. Unfortunately, the flavor soon dissipates, leaving a watery finish that the palate soon forgets. This can be easily remedied by another long pull. My 5th DF brew, and a much better experience than Shelter PA.

Good tasting stout with a crisp, dry, somewhat spicy flavor. The coffee tones were much less pronounced than expected. Overall though a good flavored stout.
