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.

Standard looking stout, not a creamy one. The roasted malt and style of coffee seem to clash, giving off a bite that's not all together terrible, just slightly. Still, drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

willisread (398) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 17, 2015
Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Opaque black pour with a big tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, grilled greens, pepper, star anise and toasted spices. Medium body. Tastes more of the same with roasted coffee and more spice coming out as it warms up. Bold and flavorful...canít believe this is only 5%.

Not a huge fan. The color is a bit dark and the flavor is strong but not my cup of tea

Bottle thanks to Alex. Pours a dark brown ruby with no head. The aroma is smoke, roasted malt. Thin mouthfeel with roast, smoke, licorice, good.

Draught. Inky black with small beige foamy head, strong coffee aroma, low carbonation, somewhat flat coffee dominant taste, thin body, longish finish with bitter coffee beans aftertaste. Good start disappointing finish.

"i definitely like licorice in my dark beer. it mellows the beer while adding another layer. i also love cascade hops. the chicory is weird, but i really liked it. this is a complex little beer, thatís for sure. havenít seen it in a while, but iíll buy it again if i do. 3/09 - great on tap as well. bigger body and complexity than a 5.2% beer suggests."

Not really my favorite offering from dogfish. Has a weird stale sort of flavor that I think is actually the chicory. Otherwise roasty and fairly dry.

Black little rimming beige head; aroma is slightly earthy and smoky/peaty; Flava is roasty malt hint of Chocate and smoke; feels light for a stout and fizzy; finishes tangy malty grainy

Its body has a very dark, nearly opaque deep brown color with a dark tan head on top. The pour gave me a tall head with great retention. It is also good at making lots of slippery lacing on the glass. The aroma is full of deep roasted malty goodness with light notes of wood and smoke. A very slight earthy hop presence is also noted. Its medium to full body has lots of malt depth and complexity. The base has deep roasted maltiness with a slightly smoky/woody coffee like character. As it warms on the tongue the middle brings out sweeter notes of brown sugar, caramel and molasses in the malt. Underneath all this is a light herbal/dried leafy hop presence that adds a hint of bitterness and touch of dryness to the finish. The finish is still leaning more on the sweeter roasted malty side however.
