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.

Bomber. Clear, ruby-brown pour with a minimal off-white head leaving minimal lace. Grape, candy, Belgian yeast nose. Heavy, smooth, sweet body tasting of candy, molasses, dark fruit, prunes and ripe banana. Light carbonation. Finish has a fair bit of umami.

tastes of dried fruit including plums, cherries and very slight apricot. molasses and dark brown sugar linger in the back of the throat. would be excellent paired with some fresh grapes and gouda cheese.

POLK (2219) - HÝrning, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2011
This American Quadrupel tastes like a hoppy barleywin because it is a little sharp in taste and there is a little old or vintage flavor to it.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2005
Aroma iced raisin bread, dates, figs, maple sugar, honeysuckle, flowers, alcohol. Taste super-sweet with fruity overtones, candied nuts, slightly herbal finish, sticky alcoholic aftertaste. Okay mouthfeel. No head. Poured rusty brown. A little too sweet and not very integrated. Thanks to Beaver for the trade!

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Bottle. Pours a translucent orange with almost no head. Nose is sweet aromas of spicy orange and cotton candy, hint of alcohol. Taste is very sugary, cloying to be sure, but later on you do get some maltiness--caramel and fruits--and some genuine hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light, but the alcohol comes on and makes you forget about that shortcoming. Finish reminds you about the sugary beginnings. Itís ok.

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - APR 2, 2005
Bottle. Poured copper and clear. I really wasnít expecting the clear part. Aroma is sweet and musty, with hints of citrus, currants and a little astringency. The flavor is very inconsistant. One sip is very astringent, the next is sweet. Currants and cloves are the strongest flavor with those candy sugars on their heels. After the currants and alcohol numb your tongue, the reverand slams the back of your throat with a dry bitterness. Overall, itís alright. A bit too inconsistant.

There is a strong malt and alcohol aroma. The color is a deep ruby red and the head is small and short lasting. The Reverend is full bodied with the taste of caramel malt.

this is smooth for a big beer. Not sure itís a good beligian though. Alcohol content bumps this rating up considerably
