Dogfish Head Chicory Stout

Dogfish Head Chicory Stout
5.2% abv

Quite a nice surprise from Dogfish Head. I have to admit, I had no idea what "flavor" chicory was until I looked it up, so I had no idea what I was getting myself into. As it turns out, chicory is coffee flavored, and combined with the organic mexican coffee, this produced a very smooth and flavorful stout.

It poured very thin until I gave it some flourish at the end and got a great sticky, thick head.

Aroma is quite unique, with a bit of sweet and sour mixed in with coffee.

Flavor is all stout with some very smooth subtle coffee notes.

Extremely smooth finish bringing me back for more.

Overall, a nice offering.
