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.

Notes from 08/12/12
12oz bottle into a taster nonic style glass
Bottled 20116?

A: Pours a super dark cola color with just a thin cap of beige cream that leaves curtains of lace down the glass.

S: Smells of dark roast grains, dry earthy roast coffee beans, and some molasses. The aroma is slightly sweet and simple.

T: Tastes of fresh brewed coffee blended with chicory root. Like they do in New Orleans. The toasting of the chicory is noticeable and adds a real nice touch. There is light chocolate note that accompanies the smoky roast character well. Has a bitter hop bite to it that rounds out the beer with some additional earthy wood flavors. There is a slight sweetness and no trace of alcohol. Pretty solid drinking stout.

M: Smooth creamy texture (oats?) with a very light frothy feel that floats across the palate. Carbonation seems on the higher end for a stout, almost like a soda pop. Finishes up a touch crisp and very dry.

D: A really nice quaffing stout. Light on the ABV’s with a great creamy feel and loads of roasty flavor. I can put a few of these down in one sitting and be perfectly content.
