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.

badgerben (5028) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2004
Dark red color with no head. Slightly sweet aroma. Mainly a malt body with some hops to back it up, but not enough to distract. Some cherry, but again, not much. Its quite tasty, but basically just very malty.

Pours dark copper with only a white ring for head. Caramel,sweet malt and hard sugar candy in the aroma. Very sweet initial taste lasts quite awhile. Alot of sugar present in the flavor. Candy,caramel and molasses. Has only a slight warming feeling. Already bought one more. Cant decide if I want to drink it or store it. I will agree with the "sinfully smooth" description without a doubt.

TerryR (391) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2004
Orange/amber color with virtually no head. Aroma of fruit, alcohol and yeast. Flavor is sweet from the malt and candy sugar. Slight tartness in the finish. Alcohol is definitely present but not overly so. Nice. Ill have to look for their imperial stout.

Quetzalcoatl (153) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Heavy malt and yeast nose, with a bit of head. This has a powerful flavor; full of rich fruit, roasted malts, Belgian character and a pleasant alcohol presence. Very full bodied.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - DEC 7, 2004
Brownish amber with a shiny little tan head. Has a Belgian character with some roasted malt, fruity aroma, and hints of yeast. Sour and bitter flavor with hints of alcohol. There is an active carbonation and a nice roasted malt that peaks out from deep in the throat. A litle dirty in the mouth, not complex enough, just big.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2013 I am only recently starting to experience the Avery beers as they just became available in my region recently. Had this one on draft at Smokin Joes in Pittsburgh. Poured a bronze color with a small tan head. The aroma is sweet and citrusy. The flavor is sweet with noted hops, citrus, pineapple, cherry and spice. The finish is spicy and dry.Interesting.

golden orange, nice fluffy head. Malty, corriander, dark fruits & alcohol nose. Tart, rasiny flavor. Vaguely buscuity (?) - nice and fruity. This is good but almost overkill - Id rather have an Ommegang.
