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.

Much better than the one on tap (also 1 year old) at the Falling Rock at GABF time (02). Seems to have aged well. Smooth rounded sweetness but surprisingly drinkable for a 10% abv beer. Luckily I have another one.

Pours a beautiful copper color, but minimal head. Aroma is a bit of nutty sweetness. Flavor is sweet and alcoholic. Not a lot going on in the flavor for me. There is a dry woodsy note to it, almost like very watered down whiskey.

12oz. bottle. Pours golden amber with a creamy white and long lasting head. The aroma is comprised of raisin, dough, caramel, candy sugar, and just a little alcohol. The taste is heavy sweet and lightly sour with a smooth and lively mouthfeel.

This is fruity, raisin-y, spicy and sweet. Not too much hops, which could help in this brew. But its a solid Quad with a nice spicy sweetness.

Like drinkin a slag of pure copper. Little bit of fruity smell with sweet smell of malt behind it. Wow, dark nutty taste with a nice little burn. This is a pretty strong beer. Interesting take on a Belgian strong. Sometimes its difficult to tell if it wants to bite or settle down. Could easily start talkin in tounges if you drank enough of this...

Dark amber ruby with minimal head retention. Dark fruit aroma. Light bodied with lingering alcohol taste. Some banana notes that finish the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A very tasty and complex Belgian quadrupel. Smooth palate, alcohol is well masked. Cherry, chocolate, molasses, and a spicy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a nice orange/copper color. Aroma is of sweet malted grains, fermented fruit, some citrus/hop notes. has a beige head which quickly dissipates. Flavor is full and rich with malted grains, and citrus hops. mouthfeel is nice and rich. Aftertaste is a bit citrusy because of the hop presence. Good beer!

I dont particularly care for colorado beers. This one is an exception. It was very good, a bit sweet for my taste. This beer put me over the edge on a long night of drinking.

Wow! I must say that this beer has an extremely unique mouthfeel.....almost syrupy. The aroma is full of dark fruits and yeast, the pour is thick and delightful, and the taste is quite pleasing. Hints of dark fruits shine through in the flavor as this thick beer melts over your tongue.
