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.

Well, the bottle advertises a bone-white head. Mine was brick-colored with a hint of cherry and dissipatted extremely rapidly. Otherwise, beer appears a rich brick-black color reminiscent of thick coffee.

Aroma of coffee with rich malty background and a hint of chocolate.

A sweet bitter bite with coffee background. I'm picking up a hint of cherry and cedar-like undertones. Something else too...perhaps the chicory as advertised. Over all, very rich and pleasant.

Not thick but not light either. Pleasant and just enough body to keep the flavor lingering.

Drinkability is excellent. Goes down smooth and easy.

Overall, a flavorful and pleasant stout.

This stout pours a near black color with a small off white head that leaves a nice amount of lacing. The nose is packed with bitter roasted coffee and bitter dark cacao. The mouth is smooth and surprisingly light. I actually wish it had a little bit more body. The flavor follows the nose with an abundance of bitter coffee and chocolate as well as burnt dried fruit and a little sweet malt to balance the bitter. This is a very well crafted stout and quite easy to drink. I look forward to enjoying it again down the road.
