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.

one of my all time favorite - loved the coffee and oak finishes, not overpowering - would be interesting to cellar for a while but couldn’t improve much - perfect

Pours a hazy light brown with a long-lasting white head. Aroma is sweet caramel, coffee, and chocolate. Flavor is an incredible blend of caramel, vanilla, coffee, chocolate, oak, and malts. Tastes and feels more like a stout than an amber ale. Delicious.

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

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.

Legitimately kick ass coffee beer with a nice amber malt backbone that differentiates it from typical coffee beers. None of the oppressive though often delightful roasted malt character, really lets the coffee shine. Delightful treat.

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.

Cloudy, amber with a thick, tan head. Aroma is caramel, roast, coffee. Taste is malty, coffee, toffee. Sweet...a little wood... Absolutely wonderful.

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.
