Bottle. The pour was just a shade light of a clear medium brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) beige creamy head that dissipated slowly into a thin layer of foam creating some really nice lacing.
The aroma was of a dark roasted malt, a mild resin hop and a light leathery yeast with notes of roasted coffee, a bit of nuttiness and a mild hint of wood (oak).
The taste was malty and mildly bitter with a nice dose of coffee at first and then became a tad hoppy with a nice woody alcohol flavor towards the end. The flavor lingered for a good while after the swallow with a nice strong woody coffee flavor left behind on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was a good medium in body and smooth and creamy in texture with a lively carbonation.
Overall a hoppy/woody Brown Ale that had the coffee and alcohol flavor blending together with everything else rather well.
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 (5365) - 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. slowrunner77 (11912) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 4, 2016
Nice coffee brown though a touch thin compared to some. Malty and sweet leaning, easy drinking but light. pressboxjoe (454) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 16, 2016
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 heís 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 thatís something we really need. I was knocking these back, too - the alcohol was well hidden. jredmond (8204) - 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.

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 Iíve ever enjoyed. Tasty and balanced and you donít taste the booze. Enjoyable brown ale. ordybill (1732) - 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. kingaugusta (270) - 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. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2015
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.
