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.

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.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2007 Ill be damned this is one hell of a beer. Nice hints of cinnamon and coriander, with the yeast keeping its distance. A sweet IPA asserts itself calmly as the beverage warms. Very persistent in its quest to satiate your palate. This is a very (a very= avery, get it?) respectable effort for a quad. Definite repeat.

Malty with a tinge of grape aroma,malty grapey taste with a grainey mouthfeel, nice sweet aftertaste, but not enormously satisfying

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - NOV 19, 2004
Dark orange beer with a disappearing head. Sweet and sticky aroma of raisins, fruit, citrus and tones of alcohol. Malt, bread and raisin flavor. Sharp and sparkling and quite alcoholic. All right, but would probably gain some after a while of storage!

madsberg (11497) - Sborg, 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. Im not really in to this beer, and would prefer a belgian Abt anytime.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2004
Sweet aroma, some dark fruits. Copper body, no head, very unorthodox appearance for a quad. Lots of raisins in the flavor, alcohol. Decent one... But not a good quad.

On Tap at Anam Caras Belgian Month. Dark ruby brown color with thin off-white head. Sweet caramel aroma. Taste is candy sugar malt with a spicy alcohol backing. Luckily I was in the mood for something sweet so it got a higher rating than it might have on another day.

TheRimmer (483) - Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2004
Marinara sauce. The aroma was of a delicious italian dinner. and beer. None of the flavors mentioned by the commercial description came through that clearly for me. I was assaulted with spices that washed over the entire mouth, plenty of citrus (orange), full bodied, and an herbal/sweet malt backbone. Finished the same with some candy sweetness wrapped around the light hops and spice. very orange color, with a very orange head. GREAT American sendup for the style.

An amber beer with an orange head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with hints of caramel. The flavor is sweet, with notes of caramel as well as light notes of alcohol and spices on a dry background.
