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

caralkaline87's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - APR 22, 2013
Pours brown-copper and transparent with a quick tan head and light lacing. Nose is sugary with a little bread, bananas, and hops. Flavor has a lot of roast and bread on the front, fading very quickly to almost no malt and some light hops and booze. The transition is amazingly fast. Hops come on harder as I drink it more. Finish is still way too fast to make this a particularly good brew.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2017 Draft pours brown with a off white head. Aroma of coffee, toffee and grains. Taste is nutty, coffee and malts

Lots of caramel and booze like you got drunk at the candy shop. Light roast. Slightly bittersweet finish. Tap.

Can from Hop City Krog Market. Really a tasty brown ale. I honestly didn't get a huge burst of coffee from it but more of a rich, malty, sweetness with light coffee notes. Pretty tasty for the style.

coffee , caramel, figs, the nitrocarbo is nice, a bit of butter. on the sweet side. solid

Smells like wet bark and dirt, earthy. Really soft on the first sip and the coffee flavor is well done, not overly bitter, after the roasted flavors subside it turns to a nice malty finish. The nitro gives this a really nice mouth feel and not sure the beer would be as balanced over all of it was C02. This brewery is turning out some awesome beers and well with looking up and picking up if you are in ATL. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Growler USA. Clear orange brown and full bodied. Balanced coffee and oak notes dominate the taste. Sweet finish. Fine flavorful brown ale.

nearbeer (5662) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 29, 2016
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.

jredmond (8839) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle shared with Scarlett in GA on Christmas day 2015. Pours a clear ruby amber body with thin white lacing. Nose is metal. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with notes of metallics, spice and brown sugar.
