UPDATED: JAN 17, 2011 On tap at Trappeze pub in Athens, GA. Great beer from a unique upstart brewery. Complex malt profile. Coffee notes are present but not overpowering. Hops finish strong but are well balanced.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours lightly hazy, deep copper-brown with a thin creamy film of foam. Nose is caramel and mild chocolate. Tastes of caramel, chocolate, cookie, toasted pecan and maybe some oak. Medium-plus body has smooth medium carbonation and a nice dry finish for such a dessert slanted beer.

Nice coffee brown though a touch thin compared to some. Malty and sweet leaning, easy drinking but light.

Bottle. I loved this take on brown ale. I heard an interview with founder Nick Purdy and he seemed to be out to reinvent beer, which naturally made me skeptical. But Ode to Mercy may have convinced me that he’s on to something. The coffee comes through almost like Maxwell House instant - an oddly sweet harmony that is much better than it sounds. Slightly spicy, slightly creamy - this is truly a different brown ale, and that’s something we really need. I was knocking these back, too - the alcohol was well hidden.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from GA with a June 2015 bottling date.
Pours orange-brown with a tan head of moderate size and durability. A layer of sediment was bonded to the bottom of the bottle. The head leaves a good bit of lace.
Smells like dark bread with notes of hops, roasted nuts, allspice and yeast.
Flavor: medium and dark toasted malts with light hops and some Belgian(?) yeast. Lightly smoky with hints of mild coffee, oak, toffee, booze and dark fruits. Mild bitterness. The aftertaste is quite nutty and a bit odd.
Feel: medium body with moderate carbonation.

This was probably one of the best brown ales I’ve ever enjoyed. Tasty and balanced and you don’t taste the booze. Enjoyable brown ale.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Very nice malt aroma
Appearance- Pours a reddish brown with a small tan colored head.
Taste- A very nice roasted malt flavor, very impressive.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation, has a creamy texture that matches the flavor perfectly
Overall- My first Wild Heaven beer, if this is any indication of their other brands they have a good thing going.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours dark red with a quick tannish head. Nose is coffee and a touch of wood and hops. Flavor brings the coffee-and-cream fullness out fast but quickly fades to a fairly thin finish with a little bit of oak/earthy notes. Surprisingly gentle on the palate, and not necessarily in a good way. Hides alcohol well. Decent but forgettable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, purchased 2/23/15 from Habersham in Savannah. Bottled 2/2015. Very dark brown, near-black color. Good finger of tan head. Leaves good, thicker lace. Nice coffee, roast malt, chocolate in the aroma. Big nuttiness, toasty. Touch of caramel and dark fruit. Cocoa nib. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, sort of crisp lighter carbonation, kinda tingly. Light slick body, then a touch dry in the finish. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Sort of creamy. Solid imperial brown. Hides the alcohol alright, aside from a bigger body. Not too sweet, good balance to the taste. Great to enjoy with my sandwich.

Bottle. Somewhat murky brown pour with a smaller white head. Great aroma and taste of coffee, sweet cream, and mild roasted malt. Not sure I’m picking up the oak, but it may be that the coffee is covering it up. Nonetheless - brown ale? Excellent example of the style.
