A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Beer – #155 – Dogfish Head – Chicory Stout

So then, my first from this brewery – Dogfish Head Chicory Stout – Brewed by Dogfish Head Brewery in the style of a  Stout and thats all happening in  MiltonDelaware USA (and I had to google where  that was), looks nice.

DogFish Head - Chicory StoutChicory Stout is a rich, dark beer made with a touch of roasted chicory, organic Mexican coffee, St. John’s Wort, and licorice root. It is brewed with roast barley, crystal malt and oats and hopped just right with Glacier hops. We use fair trade Organic Mexican Coatepec beans roasted to our specifications by Notting Hill Coffee Roastery in Lewes, DE.

330ml bottle of a 5.2%ABV (thats about 1.45 standard drinks) and a IBU of just 21. I’m looking forward to this.

Lovely dark pour, lovely foamy head, a an aroma full of promise of chocolate.

Slightly fizzy, but a burst of chocolate taste, nice!, This is a bit good. It’s nicely rich, has a slight peppery taste and is a joy. Wish I’d started my evening with this.

However, I’d be reluctant to have this marked out as a session beer, I think that the overall impression of sweetness would make it a difficult ask after a few. If you were working through a few beers in a evening with friends  this would be a magnificent part of that journey, it offers a lot to talk about and mull over., and you’d need a couple because it’s just that nice.

The pdubyah-o-meter rates this 8.5 and would buy again without any hesitation. Top effort. Lovely beer. See me smile.
