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.

ttoadee (1552) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2017
Amber, almost rose, pour, quick head. Nose is spices and malt, maybe a little sherry. Bittersweet. Middle is cherries, medium kilned malt, little cinnamon and allspice, Belgian yeast background ties it together. Finish is fruity and warm. Lookout for the ABV, it is way under the radar. Scarily drinkable.

Piana nieduża, sycząca, szybko opada do firanki. Barwa miedziana, opalizująca. W zapachu kandyzowane słodkie owoce, rodzynki, świeże morele, melasa, wosk pszczeli - dość przyjemnie i w quadruplowym stylu. W smaku sporo słodyczy w typie fig, kandyzowanych skórek pomarańczy, do tego suszone owoce, syrop klonowy, przyprawy. Goryczka średnia, pikantno ziołowa, w posmaku odrobina tytoniu i świeżych brzoskwiń. Alkohol lekko rozgrzewający, nie wybija się przed resztę, dość pełne, treściwe, średnio gęste w odbiorze, ze średnio niskim, drobnym wysyceniem.
Godny polecania Quad, w tradycyjnym belgijskim stylu, słodki choć nie miodowy, z nieco większą zawartością "triplopodobnych" estrów niż w klasykach typu St. Bernardus Abt 12 czy Chimay Blue.

Pours a copper Amber with an off white head Aroma of maple syrup with molasses. Taste is syrupy with a smokey backbone and slight hop bitterness.

strap (953) - Sindelfingen, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2017
Dark fruit and chocolate aroma. Cherries very strong. A good beer, but first stack up to the top tier quads of Belgium ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

argeru (94) - Hillsboro, Oregon, USA - FEB 20, 2017
22oz. Pours soapy white head, rusty copper body. Another big quad from Avery, but lacking a bit in the foundation, feels a bit simple.

Lore (2864) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 7, 2017
almost clear mahogany colour, 1 cm creamy yellowish beige head; aroma and taste of soy sauce, tons of yeast, some bread, caramel and minimal dark fruity notes; to be honest, this is definitely among the worst quadrupels I’ve tasted so far...I’m disappointed...very disappointed... :-(

Johnstledger8 (1264) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 27, 2016
Can. Pours a murky brownish red with a lacy light brown head. Aroma is of dark fruits, raisins, figs, cherry, toffee, hint of spice, ginger, clove. Taste is of toffee, ginger, cinnamon, treacle, dark fruits. Sticky oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

rollinsr (813) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - DEC 10, 2016
Pours clear and ruby with only a thin film of head. Aroma is sweet with mild Belgian yeast. Flavor is rounded and sweet with alcohol warmth.

ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - NOV 11, 2016
Poured from a 25 oz bomber into a pint glass. Looks like a glass of tea. Has a sweet smooth texture. ABV is well hidden. Overall an excellent beer.

AaronTDubs (500) - - NOV 6, 2016
Amber color, little head. Aromas of dried fruit, caramel, spiciness,milk chocolate alcohol. Very tasty. Quite sweet and malty, but has enough yeast spiciness and roast malts to keep it from being too much. Obvious alcohol, much well hidden. Some hops, but not prominent. Nice numbing phenolic feel, spicy, almost clove-like. Some rich fruits, dates. Traditional interpretation, but very good. Worthy of comparisons to its Belgian cousins.
