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.

Amber pour. Beige head disappears fast. Fizzing notes of coffee and caramel. Taste is very malty, but balanced with hop into coffee flavor with caramel after finish.

McNeillR (1122) - SCOTLAND - JUL 25, 2014
Murky bright brown or dark orange and a decent film. Rich nutty cinnamon and rolling tobacco. Vibrant oily and boozy without being overly sickly sweet ABV. Neat nuttiness on the finish but very clean.

Bottle, Fancy Al Fresco Tasting

jbruner (2181) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Pours a hazy copper from the bottle with lasting tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma starts coffee, then falls to burnt wood, toasted bread, caramel and hints of vanilla. Taste is a vanilla coffee with caramel and toasted bread. Mild carbonation, no oxidation or hint of the booze, mild bitterness. Very nice.

Atom (1305) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle pours a murky light brown/amber with a large khaki head. Aroma of mild coffee, caramel malts, light oak, and scotch tape, weird. Thin coffee with hops on the front of the palate, caramel and oak, with more coffee on the finish. Intetesting. Reminds me of a sweet iced coffee drink from Starbucks.

nearbeer (3634) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 17, 2014
500 ml. Darkish copper with a lasting film of cream. Aroma is caramel coffee and biscuit. Tastes of toffee, coffee, biscuit and a touch of peppery wood. Light-medium body has medium carbonation and is drinkable even though slightly to the sweet side.

574deadzone (1003) - North Central, Indiana, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Pours a cloudy amber with a smaller khaki head that leaves some spotty lace. Nose involves dried fruit notes, cocoa, and roasted coffee beans, fairly deep with complexity. Pretty sweet, fairly bitter. Medium bodied, somewhat oily, medium carb, creamy, with a lengthy chocolate and coffee tinged finish. Pretty decent brew, a mixed bag of sorts. The coffee takes over after a while, which isn’t so bad.

tmrmwel (858) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours amber with a small creamy head. Aroma is roasted malts with nuts, as well as fruity and sweet notes of berries, coffee and kandi. Medium body with no carbonation. Flavour is sweet with nuts, kandi and fruity notes, and with a nutty, earthy finish.

Spab (2302) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2014
500 ml bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours a cloudy amber colour with lasting cream-coloured head and lots of floaties. Aroma is fresh coffee beans, biscuit, caramel and light oakiness. Flavour is very much coffee-forward with gently toasty biscuit, sweet caramel and some light vanilla and oak. Fine carbonation. Neat one.
