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 light bodied, dry, slightly bitter stout. Itís nicely balanced. Itís better than average, but not great

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.

Well, people have been putting chicory in coffee for ages, and coffee in stouts, so why not chicory and coffee both? Very dark body, with a tan head, a nice mouthfeel, not overbearing, coffee and chicory not too bold. With the low ABV, itís quite drinkable in quantity, it its to your taste.

Low hops, chicory, and coffee flavors present in after taste. This brew is an excellent flavored sweet stout and worth a try (especially on draft).

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

krisfleet (130) - Sharon, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2002
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.
