Breakfast aromas of fresh baked bread and fresh brewed black coffee dominate the nose with some grain smells in the background reminiscent of sprouted barley as it is just starting to kiln.
Pours bright coffee black with a dense 3" light tan foam cap that leaves thick lace.
The palate shows a good balance between the dark roast elements, hops and malt. It starts creamy with hints of caramel, cola to introduce coffee that especially dominates the after taste.
It has the creamy oatmeal texture with a hint of slickness in a big body with slightly below average carbonation.

Thin and bitter. Not in a bad way.

Morning Wood is like a guerrilla coffee attack. You sit down to a midnight glass and take a sip, expecting a stout brew, and instead your taste buds are skewered by a charred, defiant, coffee resistance - in a good way, if you're into that sort of thing. Someone put a double shot o' joe into your beer. You're mad and bewildered, but not mad enough to do anything about it, in your bewilderment. A tasty coup.

A - deep mahogany - bordering on chocolate. Thin head that dissipated and left very little lacing.

S - Sweet coffee - like a Super America instant latte

T - Sweet versus roast up front with a taste that reminds me of cold, sweet coffee drinks from a bottle. light carbonation. Pleasant tasting, but lacking any oomph or traditional stout character.

M - Medium mouth feel with a watery/thin finish. More like a dark ale than a stout.

Overall - OK, but lacking something and nothing stout-like stands out.

Jee whiz... what a swell drink. After inundating my precious buds with that garbage water known as Great Divide's Titan IPA, does this really make a guy appreciate not drinking Great Divide Titan IPA. With a kickin' bod like Scarlett Johan, and a dark tone like a sunburnt Michelle Obam, this is one helluva coffee stout. Don't listen to the swine and scum who would erroneously lead you to believe that this has been misspiced or otherwise shanghaied the coffee flavors. They are great dishonor. My buddy brought this one out to me for my birthday and I cherish the light that it has brought into my family. If you are within the regional distribution radii of this here brewdog, you should get on it like you were randy for Scarlett Johan.

Big Wood is basically my hometown brewery. They have great beer- leading with this Morning Wood (I don't care to comment on their not so great beer). I love that it features Dunn Bros. Nice, dark, coffee stout with above average finish. Can only enjoy one pint/can at a time because of its robust taste. But, I truly enjoy that one pint.
