Pour is a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is of molasses and candi sugar. Flavor is very sweet with some dark fruit and again more sugar. Very thick mouthfeel and almost too syurpy but there is nothing really offensive about this. A bit thin for a quad but there are enough Belgian things going on with this one to put it over the top. gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Had this one bottled thanks to CarterHayes, thanks Wyl!! Clear, slightly hazy amber pour with a thin, white head, slightly sweet, very spicy nose, fortified, flavors are all over the place, dark fruits, spice, peaches, apricots, apples, and raisins. Alcoholic finish. Much like a beer version of a glog! A bit over the top for my palate. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 9, 2009

12/31/2008: Ale Asylum Mercy Grand Cru... Aroma: Sugary and spicy, soft fruitiness; Belgian-like; definitely strong; hints of something dark and roasty in the background. Appearance: Coppery orange color with a thin beige head; looks heavy and syrupy on the pour; slight haze. Flavor: Sweet toasted malt followed by Belgian-like fruits (peach, apricot, citrus, dates), candi sugar, and subtle spice; fruit leather; strong flavor, but alcohol is not present. Palate: Medium-full body; smooth, slightly syrupy feel in the mouth. Overall: Moderate complexity; well-done; very drinkable; A great beer to just drink and enjoy and not have to think to hard about it!
12 fl. oz. bottle shared by Jason. Thanks! Rating #35 for this beer.
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. The look is amber in color with not very much head. The smell is hops, caramel, sweet, malts, and spices. The taste is sweet, sticky, caramel, and malts. StefanSD (2468) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2009
Bottle at Toncatchers. Thanks to whoever brought this. Amber pour with a small off-white head. The aroma was moderate in strength with assorted fruits and spices. The flavor was sweet and interesting with an odd mix of spices that I can’t pin down at this point in the tasting. The mouthfeel is a bit thin. Overall: Not bad, not great either, but not bad.

Bottle bought in WI. Sweet candy cinammon spice aroma. Dark amber body with off-white head. Flavor of sticky sugary candy, yeasty bread notes and moderate spice to the flavor also. Thick almost like cough syrup. Although the beer was spicy, sweet and sugary it was acceptable on the palate unlike some other sweet beers that just destroy the palate.

12oz from Ughmash, shared at toncatcher’s. Pours orange with a tan head. Nose is sweet, somewhat malty, somewhat cloying. Taste is sweet, malty, overall pretty decent. DaSilky1 (2608) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 31, 2009
Clear amber appearance, thin wispy head. Nose was sweet, veginital, somewhat fruity but with a vomit-like essence to it. Thin mouthfeel, fruity, sugary flavors...thin palate. meh.
