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.

changeup45 (1729) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle from csteele2144. An amber with a twist. Amber colored with a small beige head. Smells of toasted malt, coffee, caramel, and just a little wood. Medium-bodied with flavors of toasty caramel, coffee, nuts, wood, and earthy hops in the finish. Some pretty nice depth as shown by some citrus deep in the background. The wood is more subtle than I expected but it mixes in and lingers. Soft carbonation. Interesting beer; a coffee ale without the creamy aspects. I didn’t love this but it was pretty fun to try. Certainly better than your run-of-the-mill Amber Ale.

pete4999 (1445) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep dark brown with tons of yeast at the bottom. Smells sharply of coffee...sweet coffee, light roast. But it almost has a little bit of tropical flavor on it underneath the coffee...in a good way. This is strong on the coffee but surprisingly light. Nicely done.

TURDFERGUSON (4050) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Tap at Beer Study. Pours a super cloudy dark orange amber with a small bubbly off white lace. Nose shows some day old coffee and wood up front, light caramel lingers. Flavor is similar. Medium to full bodied with a mildly sweet and lightly bitter coffee, woody finish. I enjoyed the sample I had of this.

McWorta (1530) - LUXEMBOURG - NOV 24, 2013
Amber coloured beer with a light tan fast fading wee head. Noses strongly of sugared coffee with a big splash of milk with tiny faint notes of wood/oak. Tastes rather sweet, lightly full bodied with a slick bit velvet texture. The finish is medium thick and slick lasting for a while showing sweet taste notes. Not unpleasant - a beer which can cause discussions. I like it!

Scipio (838) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Pours a bright and slightly hazy amber with a full, bubbly, quickly fading head. Aroma has coffee, smoke, earthy malts, caramel, and some hints of vanilla. I find that the smokiness stands out above the other impressions. The taste is heavier on vanilla with a healthy mixture of coffee. I get some minor caramel as well, along with mild smoke. The aftertaste is vanilla and coffee, and while it isn’t to potent, does linger on your palate for awhile. Medium bodied, with a rather smooth texture, and containing softer carbonation. I like this one. I suppose that if you like coffee and vanilla, you should enjoy this as well.
