COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Reverend, was created in tribute to the life of Sales Mgr. Tom Boogaard's grandfather, an ordained Episcopal Reverend. Tom was inspired by the life of his grandfather and wanted to create a tribute beer that contained his sterling traits. True to both our "small brewery, BIG BEERS" philosophy and to the spirit and character of the departed Reverend, this beer is strong willed, assertive, and pure of heart, a heart of candy sugar. It contains as many authentic imported Belgian specialty malts as the brewers could cram into our mash tun, and lots of Belgian dark candy sugar stirred into the brew kettle. A divinely complex and beautifully layered beer with hints of dark cherries, currants, and molasses, complimented by an underlying spiciness. Sinfully smooth considering the high alcohol content. Cellarable for 4 years.

ljthiessen (329) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy amber pour. Dark fruits, a touch of pineapple and oak. Sweet candied fruit and malt too. Pretty tasty, but not my favourite quad. A little light bodied for the style, but again - still pretty good.

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Pours a short head on a hazy dark straw colored body. The aroma is rich and fruity: orange, mango, pineapple and spices. Really good. The taste is quite sweet beginning to end, but it has a decent balance going on. The finish is long and sweet. The texture is a bit sticky with lower carbonation. It’s a nice sipping brew.
