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.

slapknot (8) - Safety Harbor, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2007 Once poured, a cosmos of clear bubbles settled atop the body of this beer, then dissipated into the clear tawny hue below. Thus the Belgian Candi Sugar Experience begins! The Reverend smells like a sweet bread, perhaps the communion of a biscuit and unripened wine. The body is warm and light in the mouth; glowing, glowing like fire water molasses. Me thinks of dark fruits as time passes and ale grows warm; currants, dates and cherries. Alcohol remains the dominant flavor, though, which makes for a dull Quadrupel comparison. Indeed, the Reverend is potent making for connection with the SUPREME plausible, but the beer remains a worldly interpretation; consubstantiation, not transubstantiation. Enjoyed from a Samichlaus Tulip, served chilled.

ttoadee (1412) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2017
Amber, almost rose, pour, quick head. Nose is spices and malt, maybe a little sherry. Bittersweet. Middle is cherries, medium kilned malt, little cinnamon and allspice, Belgian yeast background ties it together. Finish is fruity and warm. Lookout for the ABV, it is way under the radar. Scarily drinkable.

alteregoo (1298) - Kalisz, POLAND - MAR 7, 2017
Piana nieduża, sycząca, szybko opada do firanki. Barwa miedziana, opalizująca. W zapachu kandyzowane słodkie owoce, rodzynki, świeże morele, melasa, wosk pszczeli - dość przyjemnie i w quadruplowym stylu. W smaku sporo słodyczy w typie fig, kandyzowanych skrek pomarańczy, do tego suszone owoce, syrop klonowy, przyprawy. Goryczka średnia, pikantno ziołowa, w posmaku odrobina tytoniu i świeżych brzoskwiń. Alkohol lekko rozgrzewający, nie wybija się przed resztę, dość pełne, treściwe, średnio gęste w odbiorze, ze średnio niskim, drobnym wysyceniem.
Godny polecania Quad, w tradycyjnym belgijskim stylu, słodki choć nie miodowy, z nieco większą zawartością "triplopodobnych" estrw niż w klasykach typu St. Bernardus Abt 12 czy Chimay Blue.

22oz. Pours soapy white head, rusty copper body. Another big quad from Avery, but lacking a bit in the foundation, feels a bit simple.

Lore (2563) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 7, 2017
almost clear mahogany colour, 1 cm creamy yellowish beige head; aroma and taste of soy sauce, tons of yeast, some bread, caramel and minimal dark fruity notes; to be honest, this is definitely among the worst quadrupels Ive tasted so far...Im disappointed...very disappointed... :-(
