Notes/Commercial Description:
Chicory was one of the first beers we started brewing at our pub back when it opened in 1995. It's a dark beer made with a bunch of roasted chicory, organic Mexican coffee, St. John's Wort and licorice root. We use whole-leaf Cascade and Fuggle hops, as well as pale, roasted and oatmeal grains.

As with many DFH beers I am rating now, had this numerous times. This review is on tap on this date:

Pours almost straight black with light tan head that holds pretty well. The smell is almost all roasted malt, and I definitely get the coffee scents equal to or even over the roasted malts.

The taste is even more coffee-based than the smell, which works quite well for me. If you like your coffee with cream and sugar, this won't work, but if you can appreciate a dark, bitter coffee straight, the flavors could work quite well for you. The body is actually medium light.

This tasting was more impressive than I recalled, reversing the normal trend for re-tastes. I'll have to give this another shot to see if it holds up year after year.
