    St. Peter's Cream Stout: http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/296/2442

    And a six pack of Dogfish Head Chicory Stout: http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/10099/1153

    Review of the stout: The bottle says it has a "bonewhite head," when it's actually a shade or two darker than a light khaki color. It keeps a small head through out, but does little lacing. It pours with excessive carbonation, I almost thought I was going to start drinking a coke for a moment, but the carbonation settles fairly quickly and your left with moderate to slightly lower levels.

    Unfortunately I've never had chicory, so I didn't know what to expect, with that being said though, there wasn't an over abundance of it, because I couldn't even taste it. It must be a fairly subtle hint of it. What you get is what you'd expect, lots of coffee and dark chocolate flavors, roasted malt and what not. The aromas are similar as well.

    I'd give it a B- It's a solid stout, nothing quite exceptional about it though.

    I didn't review the Rochefort, but WOW. Might be my new favorite beer :)

    Speaking of Bears attire.. Here is a couple classic photos from the archive. Later that night... Coy stormed home in the freezing cold in a drunk fit of rage wearing only what is seen in the photos. Must have been a damn cold walk, and Bears lost to boot!
