COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mourning Wood is an oak-aged coffee amber ale. Fresh American oak used during the aging process and Dark Matter’s El Salvador San Jose pulp-natural coffee aromatically drive the beer yet they remain subtle components of the beers’ overall flavor profile. This amber colored, medium-bodied, and extraordinarily well-balanced ale has a delicate taste that is appreciated by beer drinkers of all palates.

Brentv (450) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 25, 2013
This beer pours from the bottle with a moderate head and a strong coffee nose. The color is cloudy brown with hints of orange. The first impression on tasting is of pepper, sharp on the tongue. Coffee and oak and an interesting complexity that was a new surprise with every sip. I was at first unimpressed, but it grew more interesting with every taste. This is a subtle beer, with just the right balance of hops and malts. While not my all-time favorite like the man who recommended it to me, this is an exciting beer that I can’t stop thinking about, and one I will go back to again.

Flaske, 50 cl, delt med Gisle. Let diset rødlig øl med en aftagende, men cremet hvid skumkrone. Freakin vild duft af kaffe. Og let hø. Smooth creamy kaffe med karamel backbone. Medium sødme. Lækker! Og anderledes.

Pours hazy amber with an off white head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, fruity hops and caramel. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter, chocolate and coffee surprising given the color and finishing with fudge. Medium to full bodied with light carbonation. Great!

Pours a minimally hazy amber color with one finger head and medium to heavy lacing . Modestly sweet up front, spicy. Toasted malt. Hint of herbal hops. Definite coffee notes, perhaps some coriander. Medium bodied with lively carbonation, but not excessive. Long mildly bitter finish. This is a unique beer. I really like it.
