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.

Dogfish Head Chicory Stout was an opaque brown with a good coffee colored head. The lace was also good. The aroma was both coffeeish and metallic. The taste had elements of chocolate and coffee (Mexican coffee according to the label), some sweetness, and a decent hop bite. This was a smooth beer, not as chewy as I anticipated and with little of the toasted taste I was expecting. It wasn't as heavy as many other stouts.The finish was dry and a little bittersweet. No doubt a decent dessert beer. The dated bottle was a good feature.
