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

Note: Formerly brewed at Thomas Creek.

Pours clear amber with copper edges and tan head. The aroma has roasted malts, earthy malts, crystal malts and some dark fruity esters. The taste has some sweet malts, roasted malts, a bit of chocolate malts and then earthy dark roasted coffee. It ends with the addition of some sweet caramel malts too.
