Mighty unsure of a quad that comes from a 12 oz can. But here it is in my hand so let's give it a shot. This beer was picked up in Santa Fe in the early fall. Pop the tab and in it goes to my tulip glass. I see a black-gold liquid, curious, finished by a strong eggshell white head. The scent, decent, fills the room, yellow fruit, grain, ribbon candy. Again not exactly quadrupel standard. But all this is the lead up to the taste. I would call it more a Belgian ale inclination. There is some red plum, malt, a touch of cane sugar sweetness, red cherry. The 10% abv is completely covered. Not bad, not great. a departure from the expected at best.

Backlog entry prior to closing out 2017. Well rounded, as expected. Nothing too unusual. It's strong. erikaraeb (325) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 23, 2017
Cinnamon, clove, and perhaps some tomato? More of a watery dubbel than a quad Bill Becker (2008) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 24, 2017
From Apr 2007
This one pours from foil wrapped 22oz bottle a clear copper colour witha large head of foam that shrank quickly leaving a fine broken layer with some lacing.
The smell is of yeast and fruit, mainly dark fruit. Quite nice.
The taste is mainly fruit up front. I can taste some fig, apricot, plum, followed by a strong yeast flavour , some candy sugar, and some bread. More sips in and the alcohol becomes more noticeable with some graininess coming through as well.To be honest, I can't say the flavours are working very well together and I'm finding it difficult to take more sips. This brew just doesn't work for me, I reckon.
Bottom line: This is my first bottle of The Reverend and I'd daresay, it will be my last. The flavours were just too chaotic for my palate.

can. Deep amber orange with very small head. Sweet with brown sugar, dark fruit, belgian candi sugar and a little spice. Plenty of booze, a little hot. Pretty good, but not elite.

Can in Seattle. Dark rosy brown, rich mahogany. Rich, fruity raisin on nose, along with alcohol. A bit of dark spice, some ester. Rich and full body, but a touch inelegant. Bit of pepper. Alcohol richness but low burn.
