I dont particularly care for colorado beers. This one is an exception. It was very good, a bit sweet for my taste. This beer put me over the edge on a long night of drinking.

Wow! I must say that this beer has an extremely unique mouthfeel.....almost syrupy. The aroma is full of dark fruits and yeast, the pour is thick and delightful, and the taste is quite pleasing. Hints of dark fruits shine through in the flavor as this thick beer melts over your tongue.

Sweet and malty aroma. Dark brown hazy. Malty flavor with sweet molasses notes and an oily palate. Very complex.

Served from tap into a tulip. Pours amber with a one finger white head. Maintains excellent lacing throughout. The aroma was comprised of bananas and slight alcohol. The flavor was of fruit, malt, alcohol, and pear upon swallowing. It was light on the palate with low carbonation. Overall this was an excellent brew. The flavors present definitely mask the alcohol flavor but it is still present. It is scary drinkable which could get you in trouble quickly as it is quite enjoyable as well.

Bomber. Poured a clear, reddish brown with a very, very minimal head that ended up to just be a ring around the glass. Aromas and flavors of apples, citrus, lots and lots of raw sugar. Thereís a distinct hoppy character, although I find it to be too sweet to really enjoy fully.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours with a auburn/red color, a light amount of carbonation, and produces a short-lived thin head of foam. The nose presented Is sweet and malty, vaguely reminiscent of the Ale Delirium Tremens brewed and bottled by the Huyghe Brewery. Flavor is pure sweetness, with a pronounced candy sugar smack. There is some hop bitterness in the finish, but the sweetness from the candy sugar does tend to overwhelm the palate. Verily I say unto you: this ale is too sweet to consume with your meal. Enjoy it on its own, as a dessert or a nightcap. If I have one complaint, it is this: youíll need to keep a knife handy to open this bottle. There is this annoying, plastic, faux dripped-wax coating that caps this bottle and it is very tough to break through with oneís fingers alone.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. Bottle (Probably a year or so vintage) - The little liquor store I frequent is out the way enough that they have a few treats which tend to be nicely aged because its normal customers buy 40s and cheap vodka. Pours a reddish amber with a small tannish head. Aroma is Belgian candi sugar, malts, dark fruits. Flavor is the same, but I expect a little more punch from a beer that claims to be a Quad. It was almost watery compared to some others I íve had. Donít get me wrong, itís not a bad beer, itís complex, and has a lot going on; but maybe it just needs more time or balance. Iím not quite sure - just a little lacking somewhere.

The color is burnt orange with small white head. I smell yeast, clove, caramel, some banana, raisins and dark fruits. I taste yeast, dark breads, raisins, brown sugar and hops in the finish. Itís cool....., just cool.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer looks like the blood of christ, tainted with a lttle burnt sienna and brilliant golden-orange- shining, gleaming... and intimidating. The head is very small and quickly receds into a light film atop the beer. This is a very distinct color indeed, looking more like a big glass of Grand Marnier. The aroma is very straightforward and "alive"- full of yeast complexities, apparent candi sugar, burnt malt, and dried, rich fruits. Morello cherries, dates, plums and grape jam complement an earthy, pungent, dry grappa-like smell. This is followed by a very herbal character, with damiana, red licorice and cinammon. Very aptly named, this beer has a rather "sacred" feel. The taste is rather strong at first sip, with an immediate hint of alcohol, but this quickly fades into notes of sour curacao oranges, strong sour cherry, and a woody, earthy herbalness that washes the palate and leaves a slightly drying, bitter, and rather medicinal gentian root finish, with spicy ginger and even a wormwood bitterness. Overall, this is a very interesting, powerful beer that hints at being too medicinal, but makes up for it with it’s spicy, fruity finish. All hail the Reverend.
