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.

A - Dark brown with a beautiful thick brown head.
S - Vegtal. Almost 'beef-stew-like'. Not appealing.
T - Flat, dull with little discernible flavors outside of a bit of coffee.
M - Feels and tastes watery.
D - One is enough.
My first DFH disappointment. I purchased Old School today so the world will be right again with DFH.

Dark reddish-brown, very clear when held to the light. The tan head quickly recedes to a collar. Smells light; roasty with earthy coffee notes, a bit bready. Watery on the palate, dry and very thin. Chalky mouthfeel. Roasty, earthy flavors up front; a bit herbal and minty toward the finish with an odd Alka-seltzer note. This is thoroughly unimpressive.
