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.

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

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.

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 (10262) - 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 (1005) - 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.

Bottle. Pours amber in color. Aroma is sweet, almost honey like. Taste is bready sweet with a metallic/coper finish/aftertaste. Not one of my favorites.

Tap at new bohemia. Mahogany with small white head. Slightly boozy sweet nose. Really nice sweet taste. Great body. Some dark fruit and light syrup. Definitely has a Belgian feel. Amazing finish. Great beer. Preach on, reverend.

DocJitsu (1976) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2015
Pours a ruby-caramel color with a light tan head. Caramel, toffee, sweet bread, cola, and hints of Belgian spiciness. Big and round on the palate. Pretty sedate flavors. Sweet toffee and caramel come through first. The Belgian spice is more prominent than is in the nose. Cola is noted, though less recognizably than in the aroma.

GlennHendry (454) - OSHAWA, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2015
Pours a murky brown with very little head.I get dark cherries, plums and sweet malts on the nose. It tastes rich, even reverential, with lots of sweet malts and dark fruits. Bit of booze at the end.
