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.

Pours out a nice dark amber-copper color with an off white head that dissappears quite quickly. Aroma is sweet and yeasty. Tastes of malts, candy sugar, alcohol, and something like pumpkin pie spice. Mouthfeel is fairly thin and the carbonation is too low. Overall its a decent, enjoyable beer, but far from Avery’s best.

Bottle. Pours reddish/amber. Carbonation seems light; it isn’t. Smells like apples. Taste is sweet, like caramel with a touch of sour apple. Quick finish. Delightful.

clasley (153) - Arkansas, USA - APR 12, 2007
650 ml bottle. Pours a crystal amber with an aggressive light tan head. Hints of biscuit and plums in the noise. Full bodied with notes of apricot, plum and toffee. Slight alcohol burn along with a semi-dry finish.

Quetzalcoatl (153) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Heavy malt and yeast nose, with a bit of head. This has a powerful flavor; full of rich fruit, roasted malts, Belgian character and a pleasant alcohol presence. Very full bodied.

dkingsella (152) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 28, 2008
Pours a reddish amber color with a nice large off white head that recedes to a nice ring and film leaving a nice lacing. Aroma is earthy with dried fruits, bannana, and malts. Nice flavor with much of the same as the aroma add black licorice, brown sugar, mollasses, honey and spices. Sweet, but not too much so. Nice sticky mouthfeel. Flavor complexities change as it warms, so slow down and enjoy. Nice quad.

Drew Blood (151) - Mt.Prospect, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2001
A very nice Quad. I have had it too cold and was not that impressed, but at room temp this beer sings. Malty and crisp at the same time hits of plum and corriander. Wonderful with a flovorful cut of beef.

2002 aged barrel tasted at Avery's taproom. 5oz taster. Head dissipated quickly. Smells very sweet and tastes sweet. Beer has 10% alcohol which isn't super noticeable.

gatorbeer (148) - Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2005 Thin, rapidly-dispersing head. Hazy jewel amber color. Notable for the rosey, floral aroma. The flavor is hoppy, with a hint of apples.

Braincage1 (147) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - JAN 25, 2010
Bottle from Total Wine. Deep amber beer with a medium sized white head. Aroma of over-ripe plums and brown sugar. A lot of flavor going on here...Sweet candy on the start, mellows to a sour cherry flavor that really permeates your tongue and ends with a sour alcohol finish. Interesting flavors but a bit too sour overall.

Dark orange gold in color, small head. Sweet syrupy alcoholic aroma with cloves and banana. Sweet malty candy taste with citrus fruit. Alcohol is very present, clean aftertaste. Nice beer.
