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.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2005
650 mL brown bottle purchased from Armanettiís, Mundelein, NY. ABV 10%. Clear red amber Belgium-style ale having a small diminishing white head with fair lacing. No discernable carbonation. Intoxicating aroma of fruity esters (cherry?), spice, toffee, and alcohol. Full bodied ale that starts with initial sharpness and mouth exploding flavor of slight sweet malt, raisins, toffee, and spices. Finishes dry with light bitterness. Notable alcoholic warmth. A deeply satisfying ale.

This is fruity, raisin-y, spicy and sweet. Not too much hops, which could help in this brew. But itís a solid Quad with a nice spicy sweetness.

Aroma smells hoppy with a floral smell, and somewhat yeasty. Appearance pours a golden brown cloudy color with a tan head. Taste is a combination of a light bitterness. Palate has a full body taste, texture is creamy, carbonation is flat, and the finish is slightly bitter. Overall it is a wonderful beer to drink!
