Dark brown with a smallish dark head. Coffee, and burnt wood aroma. Hoppy and bitter flavors, along with a lactic sourness. Flavors include coffss, bitter chocolate, with a touch of smoked peat. This one does not impress.

Head was medium, wonderful dark color. Great coffee flavor with a bit too much carbination. Finish was a little watery. Good beer, would buy it again.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 14, 2002
Off white head, dissipates quickly. Aromas of coffee/roasted grain. Dark ruby blackish hue. Somewhat thinner than expected. Nice malts nice sweetness, enjoyable coffe finish, slight bitterness. Not spectacular, but definately drinkable. When this warms up it kind of develops some more complex characteristics.

Nice roasted aroma and dark body. It has a realtively thick light brownish head that laces the glass as it goes down. Its very similar to an oatmeal stout with the addition of coffee. Im not even sure what chicory tastes like, but there is some roasted character apart from the coffee beans which must be the chicory. I very good brew from Dogfish Head.

GABF 2002: Booo, weak. Barely dark brown in colour. Pretty bland. Slightly roasted flavour, but not really.

SimonPatrice (312) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 9, 2002
Dark brown, almost black, tan head. Big coffee aroma, a bit of grapes, smells a bit like a coffee/chocolate candy. Chocolate flavor, the chicory shows up mostly in the finish. It gets rounder as it warms up. Dont drink it too cold but do drink it. Its worth it.

This is a decent beer. I was amazed at how smooth it tasted given its intimidating color and complexity. I guess I just prefer something hoppier.

Ernest (7629) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 30, 2002
Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is black (but not opaque). Aroma is moderately hoppy (pine, grapefruit), moderately malty (roasted grain, mild coffee, dark chocolate), with light notes of licorice and smoke. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately bitter, moderately acidic. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, moderately astringent. Hoppy, sour, and astringent stouts just arent my bag.
