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.

Poured into a snifter.

A: Coffee black with a tan one finger head that dissipated to foam. Thick lacing.

S: Strong chicory, smokey, toasty, leather, licorice, espresso.

T: Like drinking a strong cup of chicory coffee. Smooth. Dark chocolate. A dry finish. A terrific sipper.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: If you like coffee-infused beers, this one is a stand-out. The chicory reminds me of a Community Coffee New Orleans blend. Recommended.

03/28/12 An astringent, dry finish. A bit of a surprise. It appears the bitter of the hops has been replaced with the astringency of the chicory. I know chicory is used in New Orleans as a flavor enhancer for coffee & DH brags of it in their blurb, but it was not particularly coffee-ish.
