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.

Notes from 2011 -- Bottles pours a dark opaque black with small tan head. Black malt scent with earthy esthers. Coffee flavor roasted malt, hint of nuttiness. Easy drinker.

Frothmeister (586) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours black with a head the colour of espresso foam. The nose has big fudgy cocoa notes with coffee underneath, light ash, light citrus, and hot chocolate. Medium bodied with dark coffee flavours, cocoa, woody notes, light caramel, and light smokiness in the finish. This is easy drinking, and just plain awesome. As far as session stouts go, this might be the best Iíve ever had.

Brentv (399) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Poured from the bottle a very dark brown with a reddish tint. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor is semisweet with chocolate and a bit spicy. Odd. Itís complex and interesting, and I would drink it again, but I wonít seek it out and buy it.

12oz bottle into glass. Smokey, chicory coffee nose, which carries through in this full bodied stout with a perfectly smooth finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ClassyBeagle (319) - USA - OCT 30, 2013
FROM NOTES: July 1, í12 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 (2307) - Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2014 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. Johnís Wort? A little hidden supplement for yaíll. Great color, great with any Mexican dish with mole sauce!

snoworsummer (2444) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 11, 2013
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.

Delicious flavor. Pour is a pitch black with a thick white head. Aroma is coffee and burnt barley.
