look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Produced a 1 finger, tan head when I poured it. The beer color is a deep brown, (non-translucent).

The aroma was of biscuit, coffee, roasted malts.

The taste was similar, but with, possibly, a little dark chocolate. Had a slight hop bitterness, but the beer is well balanced. This is a lighter bodied, and easier drinking coffee stout than most I've had. Still plenty of flavor, but you can easily down more of it. I'd call it a low carbonated, medium bodied brew.

Definitely will buy again.

Big tan to light brown head slowly dies down above a clear super thick super dark brown to black colored beer.

Decent amount of aroma coming from this beer consisting of dark roasted malts, light coffee grounds, a bit of dark bakers chocolate, with a grain like aspect to it.

Dark bakers chocolate, dark roasted malts, along with a bit of light coffee coming through in the taste of this Morning Wood.

Dryish aftertaste with a bit of the dark malts tastes sticking around with this full bodied beer.

Also seems that as this beer sits and warms a bit that the dark chocolate and the black coffee aspects in the aroma and taste seem to come to the forefront a bit more, adding to this beer.

I'm glad it's sort of cold outside, seems to make this beer even better.

On tap at Republic-Uptown

A-Served in a pint glass this beer is dark brown/black with a think layer of dark tan head.

S-Beautiful aroma of dark roasted coffee beans, mocha-ish with nice roasted malts.

T-Very similar to the aroma, the coffee and barley malt meld together nicely. This beer finishes quickly yet robustly. Very nice.

M-Nice medium yet creamy body that is extremely easy to drink.

O-This is a smooth, delicious coffee stout that is on par with its peer in this category. Very well done-looking forward to other beers from this new brewery. Rumor has it they will be out in retail come January.

Morning Wood pours a black color with a small tan lacing head. There is a a creamy aroma with lots of coffee and chocolate notes. The taste has a nice roasted malty backbone, with a lots of strong coffee notes, and an almost bitter aftertaste. A bit watery, but nice flavors. Overall its a nice coffee beer, no frills nothing fancy.
