Avery The Reverend Quadruple Ale

Type: Belgian style quadruple
Origin: Boulder, CO
Price: $6.99 22oz
10% ABV

I love the way Avery bottles look. I just don't love this particular beer though. It smells a'ight and has the color of cough syrup. It's low on carbonation, but I don't mind in this case. I do mind the taste. It starts off with a sharp alcoholic punch to the mouth. It's full of flavor, a somewhat enjoyable flavor. But then it finishes with a metallic taste that completely ruins it for me. It's definitely a fruity beer. But it doesn't handle its alcohol content so well and who the hell wants to taste metal when drinking beer? At 9%ABV the Avery Salvation offering is leaps tastier in my book with only 1% less alcohol content than this brew.
