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.

Very dark. Nice chicory aroma. A little harsh on the finish though. Good stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nische (530) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2013
Rated from backlog. Coffee, cocoa, and earthy, oak tree bark aromas. Dark brown with a lasting, beige head. Dry and earthy. Medium body, low carbonation, and with a woody, oaky, roasty finish. Quite complex and very nice.

Slightly smokey with hints of chocolate and licorice. Finish and aftertaste are a bit rough. M - smooth. Medium/full body with light carbonation. O - A nice but unique coffee stout with more than a token use of chicory. Rating would be higher if not for the slighty unappealing aftertaste.

16-AUG-2013, bottle @home, present from Limoncelloman. Thx:-) Dark, dark, quickly dying tan head. Aroma is roast, licorice and coffee. A bit dusty like licorice root. Taste the same with some spice (chicory?). Medium body and lively carbonation. OK stout.

Brewdork (205) - Sanford, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Pours near-black with one finger of creamy tan head. Nice roasted coffee aroma with a touch of sweetness. Flavor follows suit. The chicory adds some depth and complexity. At least I’m assuming it’s the chicory. Other than some Café du Monde, my chicory experience is admittedly limited. But I digress... I like this beer.

7/24/13 bottle bought at CBO on 7/21 $3.09. Drank out front on the patio. In between dropping off Em at volleyball camp. Doesn't have a strong coffee taste but has that licorice bite to the tongue. Dark roasted malt flavor, just wished it had more of the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (1381) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Undated, recently purchased 12 oz bottle served in a snifter. Pours black-mahogany with a small tan head. Head has limited retention but leaves a lasting ring. Nice aroma of sweet dark malt with a substantial note of roast coffee. Hints of licorice and chicory. Taste is also dominated by dark roasted malt and coffee, but veers from sweet to mild-moderate bitter, the chicory is subtle but more noticeable, and it has a light herbal element. Slightly smokey with hints of chocolate and licorice. Finish and aftertaste are a bit rough. M - smooth. Medium/full body with light carbonation. O - A nice but unique coffee stout with more than a token use of chicory. Rating would be higher if not for the slighty unappealing aftertaste.
