Notes: 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.

The appearance was always a ruddy orange to brown color with a decent one finger white foamy head that dies within about a minute and left some nice foamy sticky lacing. The way it clings and how it seemed like an eternity before it actually started to even want to start to slide was beyond me - if anything I love the stubbornness of the lacing to stay where it is. The aroma - wow what didn’t thing have in it. There was a nice okay licorice showcasing a nice roasty coffee - like smell that seemed to be increasing in strength as it warms. The taste took all that I previously mentioned and smoothed things out eloquently with a nice touch of vanilla. On the palate, this one sits about a medium to heavy on the body when it’s fresh. I’ve noticed with some age with this, it does end up thinning out a bit. Overall, what an absolutely awesome American Stout

Like finding Bigfoot (not the beer) here is a rare sighting, the rare, relatively straight forward Dogfish Head beer. Pours almost black. Plenty of roast and I guess that is chicory I'm picking up in addition to it. Mild smoke.

Taste is just a straight forward roasty, mildly smoky, chocolate and coffee from the malt mouthfeel with a hint of adjunct coffee. The licorice is muted, and it comes across smooth overall.
