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.

Terrific stout! A dark brown pour with a medium sized tan head. Heavy lacing on the glass. Smell is coffee, chocolate and a bit of smokiness. Flavor of chocolate malt, some coffee. Very creamy taste, somewhat of a mexican coffee flavor. I'm really into this brew; give me more!

A: Dark dark reddish brown. Good head.

S: A little more woody than other stouts. Otherwise chocolate, roasty, a little sweetness, lots of malt.

T: quite a lingering bitter. Theres some good woody sweetness but it doesn't seem to blend well with the other aspects. Actually a little light on the flavor.

M: Surprisingly light body. Something there but I usually look for something more in a stout.

Overall this is an ok beer. I think the woody notes are coming from the chicory but I think the basic stout aspects were overlooked in favor or this addition. Solidly average.

I poured this beer into a pint glass, it has a black body with no head on it. The smell is of roasted malts with a hint of coffee and some chocolate notes. The taste has is of roasted malt and dark chocolate up front with some sweetness on the back of the tongue. As it warms up i get a little coffee hint. The mouth feel is really good, not to heavy but i think just right for a stout. Overall this is a good beer.
