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.

madsberg (10140) - Søborg, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2004
Bottled: Orange coloured. Clear. Ha no head. Alcahol, fruit and some spices in the aroma. Is fruity, malty and very sweet in the flavour. The alcahol is very dominating but spices are present as well. Ends on a sweet and alcaholdense note. I’m not really in to this beer, and would prefer a belgian Abt anytime.

Maria (10129) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2007
It’s a dark amber beer with a modest head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, fruit and spice, and the same is found in the flavour, that has a light caramel sweetness and a limited bitterness. In the finish there is a nice note of coriander. A nice beer 1715.
