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.

Beerdedone (2743) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark amber with a frothy off-white head with nice lacing. Aroma of caramel, coffee and oak. Flavor was lightly sweet with caramel, roasted coffee, oak, mellow fruit and toffee. Medium body, soft carbonation, dry finish.

suprchunk (2350) - Crestview, Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2014
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.

Bottle shared by bvery...thanks. Pours hazy amber brown with minimal head. Some caramel and oat notes. Standard amber taste with dry wood finish. Not bad.

Martinus (3063) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 11, 2014
Clear amber colour, white head. Aroma of coffee, light wood. Coffee flavour, malts, light sweet notes. Bit sweet finish, wood, coffee liquer, like Tia Maria.
(from 50cL bottle @ weekly tasting, Oirschot. Thanks for sharing, joes!)

jandd1983 (2761) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 3, 2014
It poured an amber color with a tan head. The aroma was of oak barrels, malty caramels, bread and some dried fruits. The taste was malty with hints of oak, coffee, toast, with some spice, wheat and dates. Very nice.

HonusWagner (1630) - Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2014
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.

Light amber color. Very little head. Smells of bourbon, vanilla and caramel. Tastes of vanilla and caramel. Very pleasing to the palate. Very cool. Label. This was a good find.

obguthr (4101) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Baker’s chocolate and coffee nose, rich and odd for such a lighter style of beer, but I’m ok with that. Cloudy ochre, thick yellow head, beautiful lacing. Coffee and oak flavor, the chocolate notes not sensed on the palate. Dried leaves finish and maybe just a hint of caramel. Coffee is dominant. Medium body. Unique and nicely done.

weihenweizen (1882) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Refrigerated 0.5 L brown bottle poured into a glass. Amber with lots of suspended particles and small off-white head. Aroma caramel, medium body, low carbonation, and some big-bubble lacing. Taste is rich coffee, caramel, some nuts, hints of oak, with hop balance.
