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.

probably the finest stout i’ve ever tasted. beautiful pour, w/a gorgeous, thick head that leaves quite a bit of lacing. dark brown, thick, the perfect balance of smokey and sweet. a lot of coffee going on. finishes w/a nice bitterness.

What a beer! Talk about full flavor. Good malt/hop balance, but the real news here is the coffee adjuncts. Its full of roasted chicory and Mexican coffee, and tastes every bit of it (I guess it helps to be a coffee lover). It even smells a little like iced coffee. Not the kind of thing to drink alot of, but a top-notch dessert beer (which seems to be Dogfish Head’s specialty).

I had this at the DFH alehouse - deep choclate color with typical stout head thickness and brown color - very nutty flavor, with a malt feel and hint of coffee - finishes well with bitterness and a roasted oats aftertaste. also good in black and tan with DFH 90 IPA.

What a great smell. Smells of coffee chocolate and some earthy herbs in there. The taste mirrors the smell with the nice chocolate and malts coming together while the coffee along with the chicory and hops mix together for an earthy slightly bitter finish. This beer is fantastic.

Pours a dark, chocolatey brown with a medium, foamy, tan head. Taste is coffee, sweet chocolate and roasted malts, and just enough hops to add some bite. Not overly thick, goes down extremely smooth. This is really a phenomenal beer!

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2011 This is the stout that made me like stouts. It is as full bodied as it gets, like a cup of coffee dropped in a chocolate fucking milkshake. But Martha Stewart brewed the coffee, and put a whole bunch of chicory and shit in it, so it smells extra fucking awesome. But at the same time that is all of that fucking awesome stuff... it’s smooth, and surprisingly easy to drink. This is a really wonderful stout... fucking wonderful in fact. I would like to get a few more dark fruit notes in there, something almost slightly sour to finish with - but as it stands, it’s really, truly an amazing beer. Thank you DFH!

Draught. Sweet mother, this is a great brew. Pours extremely dark without much of a head to it. The chicory/coffee notes really come through in both the nose and the taste of this. Lighter than you’d expect for a stout, but a really satisfying beer.
