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.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a dark brown really close to black color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated nicely. A decent amount of lace roamed around the glass.
The smell had a nice light chocolate, coffee with a variety of spices and a little bit of dried fruit.
The taste was mainly the same with a light vanilla and light oakiness.
The mouthfeel had about a medium body with a creamy smooth little bit of heaviness. I like how that feels, definitely a stout.
Overall, what a nice American Stout done by DFH. I'd have again.

Pours a dark brown nearly black color, small head and very thin lace . Roasted malt, coffee and wood aroma and taste. Semi dry finish. The feel is light especially for a stout. Very drinkable. Not DFH's best effort but still pleasant.
