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.

halfonit (1205) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Pours a cloudy amber color with a thick white head. Aroma is of roasted malts, a little chocolate, coffee, and metal. Heavier palate, slight carbonation. Flavor is of malts, oak, coffee, a little booze, and something metallic. Leaves an oaked malt finish. Decent stuff for an amber. Almost a little too sweet for me though.

My bottle is labeled Morning Wood. Amber color. Not much of a head. But there is lacing. Malty aroma. Taste is malty and very sweet. Finish has a twang mixed with the too sweet sugary presence.
