3.75/5 rDev -2.6%
Poured from a 22oz bomber into a glass goblet
Appearance: a clear dark amber, lovely. Not much in the way of a head, about one centimeter of quickly dissipating white tight foam
Smell: Alcohol and rum soaked dark fruits, plum maybe... Faint malty bread tones, slightly sweet with a barely noticeable grassy hops character, some yeasty undertones
Taste: Interesting. Rum soaked apricots with distant raisin and plum, sweet and slightly bready, light molasses, no hops flavor
MF: smooth and slick, goes down easily for the 10% abv
While certainly not my favorite beverage made by Avery it is interesting and worth a try for those interested.

3.55/5 rDev -7.8%
1 pint 6 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap poured into a Fort Collins Brewing pilsner glass in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Reviewed live.
A: Pours a one finger head of fair cream, decent thickness, and okay retention. Colour is a transparent amber.
Sm: Caramel, interesting yeast, a milky lactic notes, and great hops. A moderate strength aroma.
T: Candied sugar, some caramel, lovely cream undertones throughout, and great yeast. Fairly complex, but too sweet on the finish. Decently layered.
Mf: Smooth and wet, with coarseness on account of the candied sugar. Suits the flavour fairly well.
Dr: Quite drinkable for the ABV. I enjoy it and would have it again - preferably aged. Hides its ABV well.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a wide mouthed wine glass. Pours a ruby/brown color with little bubbles coming up continuously. This brew has very little head but pretty good retention with a little lacing. Good to know there are still active yeasts in there : ). Speaking of yeast- it smells quite strongly of belgian yeast and also of malt; has an earthy quality to it but crisp. The taste is full-bodied and clean- has the same yeasty and malty qualities as the smell with a little carbonation to keep it refreshing. The 10 percent abv is noticeable but more of a sweet sensation. There is nothing overpowering about The Reverend- everything is well balanced. That being said maybe I would like a little more excitement from a quadrupel? Boulevard's "The Sixth Glass" is my favorite but this one holds up to the best of them.

2.5 finger frothy head with some lacing. Clear, red tinged amber body. strong fig and mild dark fruit aroma with a hint of spice and cola-like. flavor is syrupy with mostly dark fruit and candy like. moderate carbonation and medium to full body. Overall, this is a mild quad. Its not quite as bold as the belgian brewery versions but still a nice drinkable quad.

4.08/5 rDev +6%
Pours a brown cognac color with hints of cinnared, fluffy off-white head and good lacing.
Smells of sweet ginger bread and molasses.
Tastes up front and on the side of spicy fruitcake, and a spice aftertaste.
Doesn't have much carbonation, coats the tongue and has a smooth finish.
Overall this is a fine beer and a great value. Darkly sweet flavors make this a great taste, but not necessarily a great beer, but certainly a good beer.
