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.

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.

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.
