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.

FROM NOTES: July 1, ’12 Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a DFH glass. A: A yeast smell on the nose with some dark malts, but not really a coffee smell. A: Pours mostly black with some ruby highlights and a two-finger off-white head. The fizzy head quickly depletes into minimal lacing. T: Better than the nose, but still short on the chicory part of chicory stout. Opens with a dark fruit type of flavor and finishes dry and bitter. P: Medium bodied and a maybe over a bit to carbonated for the style. O: A very average and drinkable stout, but average is not what I expected from DFH.

tectactoe (1524) - Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 Bottle: seemingly thick, dark, & black with hints of brown at the edges. The quickly dissipating, light-tan head is made of big bubbles and flees pretty quickly. Aroma is full of real chocolates, deep chocolate candies, bittersweet cocoa beans, & some roasted malt. A bit sweet, & even a touch smoky. Taste is roasted malt up front with some cocoa beans, light coffee, heavy floral hops, & a bit of chicory-like smokiness. Thin mouth feel, much thinner than it appeared. Not a bad stout, just fairly boring overall... merely okay.

Pours coffee-black, aroma and taste is iced coffee with melted drak chocolate added. Black licorice and chicory is there. How could anyone pick up St. John’s Wort? A little hidden supplement for ya’ll. Great color, great with any Mexican dish with mole sauce!

Bottle. Looks pretty dark. Smells like chocolate, syrup, coffee. Tastes pretty bitter, like coffee beans, a bit like root beer and burnt popcorn. Medium body and carbonation.

Pours very dark, near black, with about a finger of head. The head is a slightly tan color that settles quickly without much lacing. A very strong odor of coffee, roasted malts, bitter chocolate, slightly damp earthy woody note. Tastes of coffee and bitter chocolate, a little thin, but with an overall pleasant finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wow, I took a gamble in a Craft brew variety pack and found a winner.I’m big fan of stouts with character. This beer hits the spot with bold coffee tones that are not overbearing. My wife usually hates stouts and even she found it pleasant. The Chicory adds that complexity not seen in anything I’ve tasted. Dogfish head is never afraid to try new and innovating complexities.

Dark. Coffee. Delicious. The brewers at DogFish Head know exactly what they’re doing. Fan of stouts? Love coffee? Put this on your to drink list.
