Very nice experience. I was a bit dubious about the Chicory part of the name as I thought that this could lead to some interesting taste clashes, but the beer pulled it through.
Black, but with some reddish brown hints, a small creamy head that didn’t last long. There is a distinct burned coffee aroma to this one, and a lot of dark chocolate tastes. Not chocolate that is smooth and creamy, but more like bitter chocolate. Nice balance of malt and hops, with a pleasing bitterness for me – not too much, not too little. I found the chicory to be fairly undetectable which I was surprised about, maybe I had a somewhat less than clean palate at the time.
Worth another, longer visit in the future.
