Dogfish Head "Chicory Stout"
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery - Milton, Delaware USA
Stout (ABV 5.2%)


[Best served in a Nonic Pint glass]

Rating: 3.6/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a thick dark black with a huge (3-4 finger) light brown rocky head that had great retention, lasting throughout thus producing some really good spotty lacing.

The aroma was a little mild with a dark roasted malt and a leathery yeast and having notes of caramel, dark chocolate, roasted coffee and a hint of wood.

The taste was a strong malty sweet and a little bitter with notes of dark chocolate and caramel from the start and finished smooth and creamy with a big does of coffee and a slight woody presence at the end. The flavor only lasted a short while, fading fast and leaving a hint of coffee behind.

Mouthfeel was a few shades above medium in body with a creamy texture and a nice mild carbonation.

Overall a straight forward tasting Stout that has everything a great Stout should and more. Definitely a benefit to the style…
