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.

Pours a deep reddish/brown. Aroma is of spices with possible sugar, malt, and earth notes thrown in as well. The taste is very smooth and slightly sweet. However, as a huge fan of quads this left me wanting more. It should be more complex with more bold flavoring.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JUL 13, 2007
Clear orange to amberish with a thin small bubbled white head. Rather faint nose. some berry-like malty sweetness over alcohol. The general Belgian array of spices. cinnamon? Sharp toast? Low carbonation, not much body, thin. Much drier than I’d have guessed. Dry Belgian candy sugar. Light fruit. Strong alcohol. Toast. Some light spice, primarily cinnamon. A toasty finish with unexpected chocolate malt (given the rest of the beer). Boozy alcoholic finish.

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. Dégusté avec french tickler et Agaguk. Bière de couleur caramel brumeux avec un moyen collet moyennement collant. Odeur de sucre, alcool, raisins, sel et un petit coté floral. Gout de sucre assez incroyable, miel, caramel, alcool et un peu les épices.

This beer has avery fitting name, a somewhat tame,easy to drink, but overly sweet. Translucent, amber color with 1/2 inch head, and a steady stream of carbonation. Body seems to be torn between sugars and bitter taste of hopes, lacking complexity. The sugar really put me off.

NomDeBeer (414) - Maryland, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Pours a clear copper color with no head. Aroma is alcohol, sugar, and cloves. Taste is dominated by sugar and caramel - in fact, I don’t think I’ve ever had a beer with such a pure caramel flavor. Alcohol is noticeable, but not annoyingly so. Prickly carbonation. Decent beer - it’s certainly drinkable, but not really outstanding or memorable, just big and very sweet.

Defreni (3222) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2009
Flaske: Mørkeorange uklar. Ingen karbonering. Bid fra alkoholen og en meget lille smule humle. Krydret smag, ikke så fantastisk

12 OZ bottle served in a clear pint glass. Poured a cloudy copper with medium, fluffy white head. Nose is Belgian yeasts, molasses, and something else that’s sweet. It could be a light fruit or sugar, but I can’t put my finger on it. Taste is similar, but the sweetness and booze is very present. Neither one over the top, but a little much for my tastes with this particular brew. This beer was pretty good, but it isn’t memorable enough in any category to warrant another bottle.

bottle. Pours a cloudy mahogany with a disappearing head. Aroma is assertively sweet without being sickening and is accompanied with the complexity of plums, cloves, figs, etc. It all comes together nicely in the flavor also with a dry vinous finish. The alcohol is not detectable. Totally solid take on the style, but doesn’t go above the already high standards for a quad.
