This award winner took 2 gold medals (Best Stout and Best of Show) at the 1998 Real Ale Festival in Chicago, Illinois. And soon you'll see why. Chicory Stout is a rich, dark ale brewed with a combination of two-row pale, caramel, crystal, black patent roasted and chocolate malts as well as rolled oats! But wait! There's more! Sam also uses a touch of roasted chicory, organic Mexican coffee, St. John's Wort, and licorice root to brew this most unusual stout. Chicory Stout is hopped with whole leaf Cascade, Fuggles and Hallertau which is quite unusual these days. Most brewers use hop pellets. Look for a big roasted nose dominated by the black patent roasted barley. We found the body full and satisfying, offering a smooth texture and mouth feel. Note a full roasted body and slight hop finish. Overall, very complex, packed with unusual flavors that are unquestionably working together!
