The Reverend, was created in tribute to the life of our friend 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 the spirit and character of the departed Reverend, this beer is strong willed, assertive, and pure of heart.

Our brewers included as many authentic imported Belgian specialty malts as they could, making this the perfect beer for folks who love malty beers and are ready to take the next step. 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.

The Reverend is the second installment of “The Holy Trinity of Ales” series.

Food pairing: Try The Reverend with a gyro or paired with our favorite: steamed spicy saffron mussels.

A - Amber color with a reddish hue. No lacing of note; No carbonation either.

S - Scents of cherries, red grapes, dried fruit, and berries hit the nose. An extremely fruit flavored quad.

T - Sweetness has a cloying feel. Slightly tart in the finish. There is a warming brun int he finish that belies the boozy nature of the Reverend.

M - A sipper for sure, this appeals to those that like a sweeter quadrupel. Heavy in its body, but also complex.

O - Worth trying and a good domestic quad that is perfect for after a meal.

Pours a dark amber/red. One solid finger of off white somewhat dark head. Lots of stickage on the glass. Excellent head retention, especially for the alcohol content. Smell of grapes, alcohol, raisins, cranberries, and toffee permeate the aroma of this beer. Taste is quite complex. Beer tastes of toffee, sweet malts, caramel, and fruits. Finishes strongly with a raisiny, fruity flavor. Only a hint of alcohol is present and does not interfere with the flavors of the beer.
