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.

i like a lot of their beers and i was excited when i was given a couple of these in a mixed 6 pack as a gift. i drank one a few months ago and didn't really enjoy it. i am drinking the second one now and got on here ready to say how i really don't like it that much but this second one isn't quite as abrasive to me as i remember the first.

it's still not a favorite but i was ready to give it like a 2.75 or 3 and give it the "would not buy again" line, but now it seems to taste a little more coffee-ish, which i always like. also more chocalatey. i remember there being something particularly ... i don't know, like i said, "abrasive" about it before. it seems a little more mellow now. i recognize that the taste i didn't like (which i can't put my finger on so i'm guessing it's the chicory taste) is present, but not as up front and in-your-face as i remembered it being.

nothing spectacular. but i'm going 3.25 now instead of 2.75 or 3. i wouldn't turn it down if offered to me.
