COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

I love the complexity that this brown ale has. I wish there were more imperial brown ales like this one.

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 (5610) - 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.

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.

chinchill (5321) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 29, 2015
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
ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUN 11, 2015
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
kingaugusta (286) - Georgia, USA - MAY 11, 2015
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.
