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.

Draft courtesy of the Churchkey crew, thanks gentlemen! Dark ruby color, large off white head. Aroma of slightly sour summer fruits. Taste is smooth light pine. OK.

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 16, 2006
Amber color. Strong Ale, alcohol kick, a hint of liquorice (?) and light caramel and hazelnuts aroma. The final has some unroasted nuts. Not convincing.

yngwie (16504) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2010
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a hazy, orange-golden body under a small off-white head. Resiny, sweetish nose with alcohol and some mint. Quite pleasant, but not much like a quad. The flavor on the other hand, is more spot on, with some dried fruits, alcohol, sweet fruityness, sufficient bitterness and a faint spicy touch. Full body, quite warming. Lasting finish with fresh and dried fruits, sweetness and enough bitterness to give it some balance. Overall, this one’s a bit too much in a way, but it’s definately a beer I could drink more of. 091230

TBone (16159) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Copper brown, small off-white head. Fruity (apple, strawberry) yeast - very Belgian nose. Full-bodied, liquerish, very sweet and sugary. Maybe needs a couple of years in the cellar to cut the extra sweetness.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Dark amber pour with an off-white head. A nice spicy clove aroma to this along with a good sweet caramel and brown sugar base. Some dark fruits, a bit of banana, and lots of toasted malt. Plenty of dark fruit and banana sweetness. Some brown sugar, a bit of toast, and a nice caramel maltiness. Just a hint of alcohol on the finish.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2008 Slightly hazy golden-amber. Plasticy nose with peach and alcohol. Very plasticy, with thick, gluey malts. SOme peach/pear fruitiness. Stiff shot of alcohol helps improve drinkability but only to a point.

Bottle. Clear, greyish nut brown colour, small head. Slightly hoppy aroma. The flavour is full, nice and peppery. Nice and warming alcohol feel.
