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.

Very dark. Nice chicory aroma. A little harsh on the finish though. Good stout.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

December 2010 from bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aromas of licorice, chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Very nice balance and complexity.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
