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.

DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Aroma - candied sugar, fig, caramel malt, and nut. Appearance - the body is an unfiltered bistre brown. The head is an off-white and less than 1/4". Alcohol cloys. Taste - has fig, raisins, dark fruit, caramelized sugars, vanilla, and rich sugars. Palate - body is medium, texture is vinuous, carbonation is average, the finish is slightly soapy and alcoholic. Not desirable.

Pours a light copper with a fizzy tan head. The bottle design is surely eye catching. Smells fruity and oddly enough, lightly leathery. Tastes of dark fruit, tad smoky, molasses and a dash of fig with a spicy finish. Its a tad watery, but nothing unforgivable

Aroma caramel, bread, leather, banana, clove, raisin, Appearance amber, cloudy, frothy, tan foam, Taste medium sweetness, Palate light body, thin feel, fizzy, Overall a very drinkable beer for 10%. A little on the thin side to me. I am getting mostly malt with subtle hints of cherries and other dark fruits. This is an average beer to me and for that reason I would not suggest this beer to a friend.

Sweet aroma with notes of bread, cherries and figs. Appearance is a light brown with a small off white head. Flavor has notes of molasses and is one dimensional. Belgian esters are low. Mouthfeel is watery. Overall, this is a poorly made Belgian dark strong. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JerseyBrew (75) - Hillsborough, New Jersey, USA - DEC 31, 2015
This beer is completely off the mark for a dark quad. Zero malt complexity. I mean none at all!! Drinkable but to watery for style. Also needs to be cleared much more. Almost didn't even want to drink it, because of the amount of floaters in it. Not a bad beer. Just not a good quad and defiantly not worth the money ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet boozy aroma. Sweet spicy malty caramel flavor. Nice and smooth with each sip. Great brew.

kingaugusta (264) - Georgia, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Pours clear copper with a quick white head. Nose is tame and mostly a sugary sweetness with a touch of hops and booze. flavor profile and similar without any aspect of the beer standing out. very sticky and a bit warm. decently balanced but underwhelming for the style.

KyotoLefty (9982) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 26, 2015
Dark brown. Fruity, spicy from the yeast, rich and sweet, with raisins, toffee, molasses. Pretty fun quad. Not up there with the best of the Belgians, but pretty decent and enjoyable.

Thechasm442 (964) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2015
Bottle to tulip. Pour is a cloudy ruby brown with a light beige head and decent lacing. Aroma is brown sugar, fig, plum, raisin, and general malty aromas. Taste is white and brown raisins, dates, plums, molasses, and sweet malts. Thin mouthfeel for a quad but no visible alcohol. Nice beer.
