COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first bottled seasonal beer, this Belgian ale has a spicy aroma and deep caramel flavors to balance the slightly sweet finish. Mercy will be available in 4 packs this November around Thanksgiving. We’re making just 600 cases, with a few kegs available to Madison area bars, including the Ale Asylum taproom. At 9.5% abv., Mercy is perfect for warming the body and the soul.

Bottle from Breeze Thru. Pours reddish orange with no head. Swirling creates some spots, which fade quickly. Aroma has spices, fruits and nuts. Heavy malty, but mainly nutmeg and other spices. Taste is of sweet fruits, spices (ginger and nutmeg) and malts. Somewhat Christmas-y in style. Medium bodied and sticky. With some alcohol. Finishes long and sweety tangy from spices. Interesting.

I had two of these, and wow, fantastic. Spice and nutty on the nose, with the palate being the same. A nice toasty sweet finish lingers around a while. The higher ABV is well hidden and makes this dangerous!

A pretty solid american take, they are often too spicy or too fruity but this one is nicely balanced.

TheHOFF43 (1725) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle. Pours a nice clear dark caramel color. Aroma is weak Belgian spices. Tate is sweet, Belgian spices and yeast. Pretty unimpressive.

BVery (5937) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber orange pour with a nice sticky white head. Aroma is caramel and dark plum. Nice slick slightly syrupy palate. Taste is decent - dark fruit and yeast, fairly sweet and slightly boozy. Solid beer, but no where near a Rochefort or St. Bernardus quad.

PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2013
12/18/13 trade from Jamil. Fruity caramel scent. Bronze pour. Medium sticky feel. Fruity pebbles and caramel flavor with a little alcohol burn and a custard sweet finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It tastes like Chimay...if that’s the sort of thing you’re into. I was hoping it would be a little bit more complex than a malt forward, booze bomb. I have come to trust these guys, and I think this one probably hit their mark, but it’ snot what I wanted.

jmcgavin12 (465) - Madison, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Pours amber with minimal off white head. Aroma is spicy and sweet with notes of banana and clove. The taste is moderate to heavy sweet with boozy notes near the finish. Oily with medium carbonation and body. Well rounded beer.

kkleu357 (247) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Sweet smelling. Banana smell. Medium orange in color. Lots if flavor. Hints if banana with a rich caramel yeast flavor. Really tasty. Slightly expensive at $12 a sixer, but worth it. Buy it before its gone.

On tap at the old brewpub. I always want to pick some of this to age and it is always gone before I do. Big sweet, and boozy, what else do you want?!? :)
