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.

bhensonb (15351) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 23, 2007
Malty aroma backed by Belgian candi, yeast and spice notes. Beautiful dark orange amber color with a white head that promptly ringed. A bit thin in body. Starts quite sweet, with dark sugar, dark fruits (in a light sort of way), and some varying spicy notes. The finish is mildly sweet, and there is not really a hint of bitter. Just a touch of what could be considered very ripe fruit.

Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2006
Bottle shared with Mette, Morten and Lui. Small white head. Aromas as a bag of sweets, very sweet, no brown fullgrain bread (rugbrøds) as i like it. But some hops and alcohol. But to sweet for my taste.

djd07 (15107) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 31, 2007
Bottle as shown. Pours an amber color with a medium white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is a very spicy fruit with some malt. The taste is sweet and does not hide the alcohol well but still an all around good brew. Another good beer from Avery.
