Avery Brewing Company-Boulder, CO
Belgian-Style Quadrupel Ale
Beer can be many things: an old friend, a moral lesson, or a tribute. Avery’s The Reverend was created as a tribute.
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.
The bottle is both imposing and lovely, the colors on the label reflective of the colors in the glass; deep amber and tinged with reds. The aroma is not overpowering but smells like the perfect fall bouquet. Currants and raisins with a bit of spice.
The fruit continues on the palate, but not overwhelmingly so. The candy sugar used in the brew gives the beer some carmelized sugar notes. It’s smooth and very drinkable, particularly when you consider it weighs in at an impressive 10% ABV. So enjoy this beer, but be judicious in your consumption.
