At 9.5% abv., Mercy is perfect for warming the body and the soul.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Pours a transparent bright copper amber with a thin, wispy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of sweet dark caramel light fruits and a touch of biscuity malts. Body starts with good fullness and honeydew fruity character along with some mild bitterness before a semi-dry warming finish. Could use a more dominant Belgian yeasty flavor, but still a good attempt at the style.
