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.

God but not great. Not malty enough and too much coffee aroma. Better than most American stouts but certainly cannot compare with their Brittish brothers like Sammy Smith’s

Nice color with a good head - mild coffee aroma. A pleasant stout - although it came across more like a porter. Slight smokiness, light bitterness, moderately watery mouthfeel.

Wonderful appearance: very dark ruby red with a great initial head. I enjoyed the roasted malt aroma. Very drinkable. It is a bit thin for a stout, but good nonetheless.

Clean bitterness, some almonds, blue cheese, hint of coffee. A bit on the thin side though.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2003 Delicious roasted coffee/chickory aroma and flavor. Medium body. Slight bitterness. Much better than I thought it would be.

Dark, nice roasted flavoring. A very big fan of this beer.

Black. Malty, clean dry & bitter. Very well balanced.

On the red side of black. Excellent, persistent creamy head and lace. The aroma is divine. Roasted malts and what i think is the chicory? This is freakin good! Smooth, borderline medium bodied, semi-lush mouthfeel. Roasted malts balanced by the chicory, then rebalanced with more bitter coffee undertones. I guess it helps to have once been a coffee drinker. Finish is sooo smooth and you get another hit of the chicory, making it stick with you. Its a bit thin but unique and tasty nonetheless. A great ’once in a while’ beer. These guys impress me. The 90 minute is next.

VERY different, pretty nasty. Smells interesting. Chicory does not belong in beer in my opinion, it makes it taste like shoe leather. It does get points for originality. For me, not drinkable. I gave away 4 of the 6 pack.

Not sure if I should even rate it, as I don’t like coffee. The description says ’touch of organic mexican coffee’. Touch, heck, this thing is loaded with coffee flavors. Way too much coffee flavor.
