A: Poured quickly into a typical Pint glass. (would kill to have a nitro tap for this beer!) Formed a nice 1" tan head that lasted roughly 2 minutes and shrank to a think lacy top layer. Beer was almost black as night and looked like a stout should.

S: Malty with some slight hop aroma along with roasted coffee

T: A sweet coffee chocolate and caramel hits you up front that resembles a mochachinoish flavor that is following by a lagging burnt roasted bitter malt flavor. the perfect balance if you ask me. you get the sweetness for a good 5 seconds then bam, here comes the burnt malts and a slightly booziness

M: Mouthfeel is like liquid velvet. Very full mouthfeel like drinking a meal.

Overall: A super good stout and am very very impressed since this is my first stout. I like it better than a lot I have tried from large distributors. I like the fact that it is a sweeter stout that has a bigger abv. I will be putting this on my fall and winter brew list for sure. I am not sure I would change anything about it for my own personal taste buds. I put on my label, "A breakfast stout with an imperial attitude" and I think that describes it well.

Sorry for the crappy pics. iPhone + cloudy day + artificial warm lighting doesn't mix.

With a name like Morning Wood I expected oak chips, horny goat weed, or a Viagra in the recipe.
