COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial Brown Ale
What could possibly be better than the combination of deep roasted malts, coffee, oak, and a smooth, creamy finish?

Ode To Mercy overflows with bold flavors woven into a very balanced and approachable beer that finishes with creamy lingering hints of oak, coffee (specially blended by Athens, GA’s 1000 Faces), and roasted goodness. Bright citrus hops peek through from time to time, adding additional layers of complexity.

Suggested food pairings: Barbecued chicken, Kielbasa, prime rib, cheesecake, English Cheddar Cheese, pate, and Munster cheese. 20SRM

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2015 Wonderful Georgia Beer. Pour is nice brownish-copper with a thin white head. Aroma is fresh roasted coffee. Has an earthy taste to go along with dark chocolate, and coffee. A touch of woodiness (oak?) and sweetness camouflage the alcohol. Great rich and creamy mouthfeel, especially for the flavoring. Excellent brown. Definitely want to give this brewer another go round.

PorterPounder (7062) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Savannah, Ga - World Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling dark copper with a slight off white head that leaves just a bit of lacing. Very fragrant aroma with hints of fresh brewed coffee, a hint of pepper. Full-bodied flavor with some sweet toffee notes, a whiff of chipotle peppers, a bit of brown sugar. Belly warming - alcohol is noticed - but sits right. Sticky mouthfeel. Rather impressed - nice surprise.

ratebeef (4) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2012 does not count
Bottle thanks to jwr07 Pours deep amber, with some lacing. Has a blend of earthy tones, nuttiness, and is somewhat savory. Very malty, tastes a little like carbonated sweet wort, hides the alcohol well too.

maekchu (3323) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 2, 2012
Bottle. Contract brewed. Sweet, caramel, roast aroma w/ some floral hop bouquet. Dusky, dirty brown color w/ steady carbonation. Little head. Light sweet caramel flavors w/ some hops in final. Light body, somewhat thin, mild carbonation. A sticky mild aftertaste. Very mild, the alc. is not apparent. Quite sweet and could use more flavor hopping. Is this brewery name a nod to an R.E.M.song?

Cask at GBBF2011. Pours clear brown with a small off-white head. Foam dissipates quickly. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel and nuts. Hints of wood too. Flavor is similar with roastiness, some grains, wood and caramel. Good carbonation. Overall, a bit above average, nothing more.

wedgie9 (2588) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Tasted in late November 2011 from a 12oz bottle at UncleJedi’s birthday tasting. Pours clear amber with an average off-white head that slowly recedes to thin lace. The nose is malty chocolate, coffee grounds, and a lightly spicy note. The flavor is malty chocolate up front, moving to nutty coffee grounds, the same spicy note from the nose, and some nicely roasted bitterness. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long cocoa and bitter coffee finish.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Bottle. The pour was just a shade light of a clear medium brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) beige creamy head that dissipated slowly into a thin layer of foam creating some really nice lacing. The aroma was of a dark roasted malt, a mild resin hop and a light leathery yeast with notes of roasted coffee, a bit of nuttiness and a mild hint of wood (oak). The taste was malty and mildly bitter with a nice dose of coffee at first and then became a tad hoppy with a nice woody alcohol flavor towards the end. The flavor lingered for a good while after the swallow with a nice strong woody coffee flavor left behind on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was a good medium in body and smooth and creamy in texture with a lively carbonation. Overall a hoppy/woody Brown Ale that had the coffee and alcohol flavor blending together with everything else rather well.
