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.

660ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut!
Erm, which Latvian lager is this? Mashy and raw. Taste is the same, hot alcohol, thin and adjuncty. Crazy raw. Completely lacking in beer, at least as the brewed stuff. Mashy raw. Boozt builds up aggressively. Still raw and mashy sip after sip. I have a 7 year old bottle of this, I hope it is better.

suurjuust (2794) - ESTONIA - JUN 25, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2016 Bottle shared by Mart. Clear red amber beer, small tan head. Nose is fruity, toffe, molasses, red currants, sweetness. Flavor is caramel, berries, sugar, dark fruit. Middle of the taste to early taste is empty, caramel and dark fruits kick in in the very late finish and aftertaste, some hops notes and caramel in there, metallic notes. Surprisingly thin. Hides the booze well though.

rejtable (2302) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2016
Pours light brown, clear with some initial head and spotty lacing. Nose is sweet syrup and some dark fruit. Flavours of raisins, spice cake, toffee. Taste medium/big sweet, medium/light bitter. Medium body with medium carbonation. Alcohol is there, but not too heavy for the size of the beer.

Fujimo2000 (87) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 28, 2016
Pours dark copper with a fairly aggressive lacing that dissipated rapidly. Aroma is fresh cherry with vanilla. Smooth and satisfying without being too sweet!

Great smooth Belgian quad. Lightly fruity and carbonation. A bit of a stronger alcohol bite but in the end a good brew

sebastokrator (58) - - MAY 12, 2016
Pours a mahogany brown with slight, white lacing. Smells of raisins and figs. It’s a pleasant, sweet smell. Taste is sweet from the dark fruit, coffee, and caramel. It’s moderately carbonated and not much burn for its abv. It’s a pretty nice quad.
