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.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - DEC 29, 2008
22oz bottle. Brightly clear amber with a fleeting white head and lasting foam. Doesn’t look much like a quad, but is nice regardless. Fruity, sugary aroma with some blackberry, apple, and a touch of pool water. Sweet and sugary with light apple and dried papaya notes and some light alcohol burn. Finishes sweet. Thin for style body with weak carbonation. Overall, a sweet amber ale with some light fruity touches. Decent, but not a god quad

Bouteille de 600 ml. Dgust avec french tickler et Agaguk. Bire de couleur caramel brumeux avec un moyen collet moyennement collant. Odeur de sucre, alcool, raisins, sel et un petit cot floral. Gout de sucre assez incroyable, miel, caramel, alcool et un peu les pices.

The head was fleeting with medium lacing and a murky body.This is a very particulate beer with a turbid appearance and an amber hue. Aroma wise the initial smell about ten seconds after the pour gave a deep fired cherry accent with medium hop volition that reminded me of preserved fruit. A very pleasing to the palate smoothness with a slick almost waxy texture, in other words it has a medium to light drink-ability. Average carbonation with a stinging finish, meaning the sweetness and the fruit tones were very apparent to say the least. Overall I would say drink it after a meal with some toasted nuts or bread because the beer is very sweet.

Bomber. Clear, ruby-brown pour with a minimal off-white head leaving minimal lace. Grape, candy, Belgian yeast nose. Heavy, smooth, sweet body tasting of candy, molasses, dark fruit, prunes and ripe banana. Light carbonation. Finish has a fair bit of umami.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2011
22oz bottle. Dark amber brew with some white head. Dark fruit and candy sugar aromas. Alcoholic and sweet - a bit too sweet for me. One bomber was more than enough for me.

paco (576) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - SEP 5, 2011
tastes of dried fruit including plums, cherries and very slight apricot. molasses and dark brown sugar linger in the back of the throat. would be excellent paired with some fresh grapes and gouda cheese.

POLK (2219) - Hrning, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2011
This American Quadrupel tastes like a hoppy barleywin because it is a little sharp in taste and there is a little old or vintage flavor to it.
