The first thing that you noticed with this beer is its dark coloration, you can hardly see through it even when holding it up to the light. It pours nicely and has a chocolaty scent to it. When you take your first sip it has a definite coffee taste which isn't surprising since the box says they actually use Dunn Brothers coffee beans in the brewing process. This is a very smooth drinking beer, It is also very rich.. I can't help but thinking this beer would go well with some Bacon, Eggs, and Hashbrowns after a rough night

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.
