Growler from Cumming Beverage and Growler Shop
Cumming, GA

A: reddish amber color when held up to light

S: coffee and brown sugar aroma

T: hints of chocolate with the coffee

M: Light on the palate yet creamy for a darker beer with a higher ABV

O: Fairly complex, good drinking beer, pleasantly surprised for an 8.2% beer, not too much alcohol flavor

Pours a one finger head and can smell the malts and a hint of coffee. The taste is very much like the smell. Malts up front and a hint of coffee in the back. Like the mouthfeel. It's a medium thick. Overall a decent beer. Gets better as it warms. Not a favorite but will have it from time to time.

Light brown to reddish colored, nice creamy head, one finger with staying power. The beer is clear with a moderate amount of carbonation.
The aroma is strong. I like that I don't have to work hard to pick I up. It smells very sweet, like caramel, honey, it's almost like a dessert.
Malty sweetness, a little more sweet than I usually like, caramel, toast, and wood. The caramel like sweetness is the biggest flavor here however I enjoy the flavor complexity.
Crisp and sweet right away, the flavors change nicely as it warms but I'm left with a cloyingly sweet aftertaste.
I love everything about this beer except for the aftertaste. It smells good and has good flavors and is decent to look at. I would buy this beer again.

12oz bottle into a Russian River Belgian Stemmed Glass

A: Poured a clear dark amber with a nice light tan head that faded to a layer and left some lacing on the glass.

S: The nose starts with a big malty sweet aroma as well as a pecan smell. There were some sweet brown sugar aroma in there as well.

T: The taste is a nice balance of sweet and slightly earthy flavors. It started with sweet caramel and moved on to a bit of hops along with a roasted malt flavor. The hops are actually more prominent than the nose led on.

M: The feel is very creamy and medium bodied.

O: This Imperial Brown ale is one of the better I've tried, would purchase again.

Picked up a four-pack in lovely Norcross, GA during training week. Gotta have something to ward off the damage done to my brain from all that light, airy information. 12 oz. bottle.

Poured into a short, actual glass glass in the hotel (that thar is a mark of falutin' high). Points for a cool label; like the low-hatted strummer. Surprisngly light, looks more like cream cola than a brown, sparely carbonated. Nose of light, sweet malts again belying the brown label, bits of chocolate.

Ode to Mercy morphs on the tongue. Creamier than raw milk right out of the udder, this is a lactose lover's damp-sheet dream. Sweet milk, light roast, oak in the back of the throat. Brown, nutty, malt tang. Hard to detect the alcohol here, this is a beautiful sipper.

Very good beer. I'm not overly partial to browns, but this was a fine example, I'll be coming back to Wild Heaven with tonsils gaping.

Poured from a brown growler into a clear glass goblet. Supplied by my good friend Erinn at our annual get-together.

A: Murky brown with 1-2 finger light beige head with good retention and ample lacing.

S: Malty without a doubt with earthy, herbal hopping and sweet caramel/coffee notes meeting a light sourness

T: The dark robust maltiness is substantial and has a good balance of breadiness, roast, and additional coffee and dark chocolate mocha. THe hops are background and herbal-earthy in character. Alcohol is very well-hidden with only a hint of woodiness.

M: The feel is silky smooth with the alcohol far in the background and the carbonation low-medium.

O: A really good imperial brown ale -- impressive in its complexity with the alcohol way in the back and the dark maltiness taking center stage. Great beer and I look forward to others this weekend.
