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.

Tap at Local Option, Chicago. Poured a hazy deep amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is strong malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a smooth malty liqourice yeast palate. A super smooth refreshing beer. A real find.

musinj6 (434) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 14, 2013
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.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Medium coffee aroma, with hints of sweetness, toasted nuts. Flavor follows suit with a complex medley of earthiness, coffee, and smooth nut flavors. Delicate is a fair description, and the complexity and drinkable is impressive.

Benzai (9320) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 Sampled from bottle @ The Hague tasting. Hazy orange color, small beige head. Smell and taste malts, smoke, ash, earth, tea. Decent I’d say. But I don’t get why this is a spice/herb/vegetable...

worldbeertaste (1704) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2013
Amber with a white, thin, lacy, lasting ring, head. Smells interesting, mocha, wood, caramel, and a bit of peach under it all. Medium oily body. Tastes of caramel, woodiness, ash, and a bit of overripe fruit. Peach and apples. Good effort but not amazing.
