COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Local Option Morning Wood: Local Option Morning Wood is an oak-aged coffee ale developed and brewed by Local Option Bierwerker. Fresh American oak used during the aging process and Dark Matter’s El Salvador San Jose pulp-natural coffee aromatically drive the beer; while remaining subtle components of the beers’ complete flavor profile. The amber colored, medium-bodied, and extraordinarily well-balanced ale was first unveiled at the Festival of Wood and Barrel Aged Beers in November 2011. Morning Wood’s taste is delicate and should be appreciated by beer drinkers of all palates.

500ml bottle. Finally an amber I enjoy! The coffee and oak really add depth and character. Relatively easy drinking for the ABV. Unfiltered hazy red hued orange. Foamy white/off-white head. Really exceeded my expectations, I could go for more of this one.

Light copper pour with a thin white head. Aromas of coffee and malt not much oak to speak of. Flavor is sweet malts upfront with coffee, oak is absent. Decent brew but not quite as complex as I would have liked.

Douberd (2218) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2014
At Zeebra II. Clear body, deep orange copper, with a thin head on top. Aroma has lots of coffee, a bit of straw and caramel as well but the coffee dominates. Taste has also some caramel, malts and plenty of coffee. Medium thick body, good carbonation, dry palate.Overall very good, pleasantly surprised.

16.9oz bottle 5/12/14 (Crown Liquors #15-Fishers)-Pours a murky orangish amber with a big off white head. Aroma of coffee, malt, and oak. Taste of the same with some caramel and sweetness on the back end. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and easy to drink. Great brew.

On tap. Nice aroma. Wood too overpowering for me. Lacked a balance like FW DBA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour a dark amber color. Can smell the oak and hints of coffee. Slight fruity taste, but goes well with the oak/ coffee.

larsga (6179) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2014
Small offwhite head. Hazy reddish amber body with visible particles. Strong perfumy cappucino and cinnamon aroma with earthy notes. Dry-sweet perfumy coffee taste with lavender notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish perfumy lavender and milky coffee aftertaste with cinnamon notes. Not at all bad, but a bit one-dimensional. (0.5l bottle from wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

Slipstream (2007) - USA - APR 26, 2014
Smooth and astringent with lots of fresh coffee taste. Dry and smooth - it does not come on too strong, and the coffee blends in nicely with the hops. Good brew, and it gets a point for originality.

Draught from Proletariat. Reddish amber, lots of wood and vanilla and espresso notes. Nice, malty, not too heavy but serious espresso kick. Beautiful
