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.

Oh no. Chicory.

I had a co-worker who always brewed this terrible ground coffee that was 50% chicory, and it was awful.

Body is opaque black, not much light getting through, some lacing on the sides.
I can smell the chicory signature aroma that resembles stale coffee and wet cardboard. I know someone is going to say oxidation, but no, it is just the chicory, i know it well.
The flavors are equally offensive, and brings back memories.
There is some chocolate malts fighting to regain control of this sinking ship. Faint lactose and cheap coffee.

Sam, i know a thing or two about coffee. Ask me first next time.
