The Best Nighty-Night Beer
Some beers are light, some beers are heavy. This beer needs to be drinkable, sweet and high proof. Needs to be able to end a good meal and be a relaxing end to the day. The Winner is Wild Heaven – Ode to Mercy

Wild Heaven - Ode to Mercy
. This beer is an imperial brown, it is caramel malty sweet and crisp; distinct in both bottles and kegs, the beer is a newcomer, but still a great fixture to the Atlanta Beer scene. It is risky to start with an imperial beer, but they pulled it off.

Served on tap at the Brick Store Pub.

A: Dark brownish color with a small head.

S: Very nice nose with a lot of coffee aroma coming through

T: A much more complex taste than I would have imagined from a brown ale. Lots of coffee and malt. A very well balanced beer that hides its high ABV well.

D: Very easy to drink considering the complexity and the high ABV. Just what an Imperial Brown Ale should be.

I can't get enough of this beer. The key is having it served at the correct temperature. As this beer approaches room temperature it really opens up and shines.

I'm a big Paste Magazine fan, so I had to try this new Atlanta brewery out.

Had this on tap at Taco Mac, Mall of Georgia.

I'm a rookie at beer reviews, so I can't give you all the technical jargon yet.

This beer was all around delightful. Had a coffee taste, but not too overpowering. Had a good level of carbonation that complemented the flavor nicely.

I look forward to these guys putting out bottles later this year.

The style says Imperial Brown Ale, but this is a Coffee Brown that rivals my favorite coffee stouts. Smell this one before you taste it, and you'll think someone's brewing a fresh pot. The flavor is abundant and complex, fully living up to the "Imperial" tag.

Bottle poured into a glass.

A: Copper / light brown in color with off-whitish head and some lacing

S: Malty-sweet nose with toasty almonds. Light floral and fresh citrus notes from the hops. "Darker malts but short of being overly porter-like" (that is straight from the BJCP Guide, more or less). And this beer nails the style.

T: Chocolate is the first and the persistent flavor. The finish is more like a dark-roasted coffee with the high bitterness of an espresso shot. (The sweetness was just a little too much for me. But what do I know; maybe that high sweetness was necessary to cut the bitterness.)

M: Medium-full body with a molasses as well as dry, resiny impression. Alcohol warmth in the end.

Notes: As far as nailing a style, I don't think I have had a beer in the past year that has done THIS well. Furthermore, I really enjoyed what the brewmaster did with this creation. It was almost like drinking a more complex and rich Irish coffee. Amazing!

4.6/5  rDev +16.5%

first off thanks to ATLSaint for sending this in a trade.

a: nice deep brown with a big billowy khaki colored head.

s: roasted coffee, caramel and toffee.

t: more roasted coffee and sweetness from the toffee.

m: full bodied beer with a good mellow finish thanks to oak and coffee.

o: they call this an imperial brown but it drinks more like a big stout. if you like roasted coffee and a warming booze effect this beer is for you.
