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, GAs 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

Not sure why anyone would rate this below my score, but this is hands down the best brown ale Ive ever tasted. Has a strong coffee taste, with a slight bitterness and pours a solid head. Marlows in Dunwoody has this on tap right now 3/20/14. They actually do a great job on their draft beer selection.

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.

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.

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

Dark brown, heavy aroma of coffee/chocolate, smooth hint of oak, no trace of alcohol, with a thick & silky mouthfeel from the lactose. My absolute favorite brown ale.

Deep brown with a reddish tint and thick off-white head and lacing. Malty, coffee and chocolaty aromas with a touch of baking spice.Palate is silky smooth, rich with coffee and dark chocolate. Lingering smoky chocolatey finish. Very, very good winter warmer without being very heavy.

Clear, auburn colored body, and a foamy wheat colored head, towering well above the rim of my mug, made this an attractive pour. The smell had a a lot of toffee, chocolate, and coffee aromas readily apparent, with coffee being detectable before even bring the nose to the glass. The taste abounded with the same themes, with a coffee dominated flavor profile, with hints of an oily oatmeal like flavor as well. The finish was soft and chocolaty, and there was very little aftertaste. This was definitely a solid offering from this new local brewer. I look forward to sampling more.

Pours nice & dark brown. No doubt an Imperial brown due to the significant hop background. Cool label design too. A nice cool weather ale.

On draught @ Cypress Street. 12 oz pour into a tulip. Dark brown with a big frothy white head, only lasted a couple of sips but left the glass covered in lace. Aroma was of some lightly roasted sweet malts, somewhat nutty, chocolate malts, and a tinge of coffee. Taste was light roast up front, small amounts of coffee throughout, very subtle though, there was also a bitterness throughout helping to balance all of the malt. There was also a bit of vanilla sweetness. Extremely smooth all around, there was a bit of heat in the finish. This is a goto brew, just wonderful stuff. Cant wait for bottles.

Draught at j Clyde. Motor oil brown pour with medium off white head and good lacing. Coffee and brandy aromas. These are echoed on the palate along with a nice sweetness and driedfruit. This is a fun beer!
