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.

Poured from bottle into NB Globe. Pour looks really nice; deep brown with ruby hue. Off white sticky head.
Great coffee, vanilla, and dark chocolate aromas.
Taste is really nice; bitter coffee and chocolate with a bit of sour/bitter root or maybe its the chicory?? Its a bit harsh at first but it really mellows out and blends well.
Overall, this is a really unique stout, good flavors, well balanced and unique.

A: pours black with a small tan head and decent retention.
S: chocolate, molasses, coffee, licorice and a bit of roast malt and brunt sugar. lots in the nose but it's fairly soft
T: coffee, chocolate, roast malt, chicory. swallow brings more coffee and roast malt with a touch of chocolate
M: slightly prickly carbonation and a lighter than expected mouthfeel on the side of medium.
O: another solid beer from Dogfish Head. Good complexity and flavor and fairly drinkable for a stout.

Pours almost black with a brownish head. The head sticks around for a bit, but soon all that's left is some lacing.
Smells of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts, wood, and a bit of licorice. Taste has coffee at the forefront. Some nice smooth sweetness going on here. Good somewhat thick mouthfeel with medium carbonation.

One of my favorite non-imperial stouts! A bit underrated by the BA community, actually.

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!
