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

Pours nice & dark brown. No doubt an Imperial brown due to the significant hop background. Cool label design too. A nice cool weather ale.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Serving: Draft at The Distillery. It pours a nice amber color with a lasting, creamy, tan head. The nose has notes of green peppers? The flavor has some cooked green pepper notes and a lasting bitterness. I can’t help but think this one is off. Not my cup of tea.

Bottle pours ruby-brown, with billowy off-white head. Nose is caramel, slight oak, a bit of milk chocolate, vanilla and apple undertones. A slight whiff of alcohol. The burnt caramel malts really come through on the tongue, along with more oak and slightly stronger apple cider notes. I’m a bit concerned about the pronounced alcohol burn on the palate for just an 8% beer. If WH can tweak this, it can be a real winner.

Beautiful color, dark and and clear. Very nutty aroma. Nicely malty flavor, not too rich. Slight harshness in the finish, but nothing off-putting.

Ratman197 (12654) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2011
Bottle courtesy of Craftbeerdesign (ThanksGeoff) poured a clear reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of carmel, light cocoa, light cola and a hint of oak. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, cocoa and oak with a smooth lingering carmel finish.

GBBF. Cask. Light haze on this amber beer. Reasonable white head. Light dry palate. A little raw tasting pale malt with a trace of toffee. Mild orange hop provides balance but I found this beer to be too dry overall.

GODiSSOUTHERN (390) - Virginia, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Nice strong malty and nutty nose. The flavor is like that of a nut brown but with a much thicker mouthfeel. Good balance.

Dark brown with a white head, aroma is a little coffee and dough. Flavor is rather sweet and bready at first, heavy malt. Coffee comes in strongly in the finish and is more noticeable as the beer warms up. Quite good, one of my new local favorites.

Gentle aroma of chicory and black tea. Deep, syrupy appearance with a modest sea-foamy head that disappears quickly. Tastes roasty, malty, nutty, with a touch of honeysuckle. Gentle carbonation, light palate. Overall, very drinkable and refreshing on a hot Georgia day.

Leighton (17447) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2011, Day 3. Pours a rich, brown-amber with a small head. Rich malts in the nose, some caramel. Light to medium sweet flavor, notes of ripe fruits, light toffee. Medium to full in body with soft carbonation. Mild warming finish, brown sugar, caramel, booze, fruits. Very good stuff.
