Draft. Woody coffee and caramel malt aroma - absolutely wonderful. Hazy amber with moderate head. Sweet coffee and caramel malt with mild herbal hops flavor. Nicely blended. Delicious - love this beer.

Bottle. Pours a hazy darker amber color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose smacks you in the face with some heavy coffee notes in there, with the wood aging coming through underneath. Taste is actually quite coffee laden with some hints of chocolate in there. Really interesting beer.

Tap pours golden burnt orange with a rim of off white bubbles. The aroma is mostly coffee, sweet fruits too. The flavor starts grainy and with a hint of coffee, hits a tart sort of acidic bump and goes back to the grains with coffee lingering long term with the pale malt. Very well congealed brew, interesting and smooth.

Great roast! Morning wood treats with earthy coffee flavor and, true to word, offers a balance of oak, dark fruit and coffee. I have not found this flavor coming out of anything but a stout. Mouthfeel not as aggressive as a stout; I recall Boulevard's coffee ale, but this better. 28/30.

Tap at brewery. Fresh roasted coffee, and a little bit of smoky oak. Aroma reminds me of walking into a coffee serving bookstore. Hazy amber with a small white head. Sweet caramel malt, earthy smooth coffee - like a smooth Sumatran coffee, and light oak flavor. Medium body and carbonation.

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.

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.

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!
