COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blasphemy is our award winning QUAD aged in bourbon barrels. But not overaged, so we've picked up gentle vanilla oaky notes which complement rather than supercede the complex qualities that already make QUAD such an incredible beer.

ben4321 (3559) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Location: 750 ml bottle from Sparrow, 11/1/13

Aroma: The nose is malty and boozy, plenty of bourbon, oak, caramel, fruit, and a little spice
Appearance: It pours a murky brownish-orange color with a very small beige head
Flavor: The taste is much the same, lots of bourbon, some malty sweetness (but not over-the-top)
Palate: The body is full, a little heat, but not quite as much as the 11.8% would lead you to expect
Overall Impression: My first beer of November, and this one is certainly a sipper. It also drinks better at slightly warmer temperatures. This beer is very much worth trying, especially if you enjoy bourbon.

SlackerMads (1241) - DENMARK - OCT 18, 2013
Bottle. Hazy chestnut brown with a small off white head. Dark fruits, brown sugar, marzipan, light licorice, black berries, brown sugar. Medium body with a slow building alcohol punch to the face. Dry finish. Can’t pick up the bourbon, but pretty punchy quadrupel.

cork and gaged bottle split with the wife pours copper with light hazy, a quick fizzy tan head. nose of bourbon and pitted fruits. mouth begins with booze burn followed by bourbon, oak, and some fruits. body is medium but is over carbonated... way too much fizz in this quad. better luck next year.

Elwood (2960) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a deep red color with a small off white head. The nose is full of dried fruit, particularly dates, raisins, and figs. Sweet and boozy on the tongue the dried fruit really takes hold with leather, vanilla, and tobacco notes joining in. Syrupy mouthfeel with a lingering finish. Sweet, but tasty.

BlowOffTube (389) - Michigan, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Thank you jesterdeal! Pours brown with an off white head. Aroma is spicy oak, caramel, and brown sugar. Taste is big oak and brown sugar and sweet caramel that doesn’t leave that strong bite in the end. Very smooth and enjoyable. great stuff.

Raisin, plum, sweet, syrupy. I actually think this might be a bit better than the real belgian quads.

Bottle shared with my friend Tony. Pours a reddish cloudy brown without much head. Aroma of bread and bourbon sweetness. Not a ton of heat but just a slight bite.

brison (44) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Taste is of vanilla and bourbon underlining all the usual taste of a quad. Getting dark fruit and quite a lot of caramel as well. The alcohol does come through quite a lot but the sweetness tries its best to counter balance.

troupos40 (65) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Pours a hazy orange, smells of vanilla and banana clove. Smooth on the palate, this beer masks the alcohol well for 11%. Overall this is a very good Quad, better than many other offerings. Recommended.

Pours dark brown with a thin white head. Smells-Vanilla, caramel,bourbon. Tastes- The bourbon flavor was a bit over powering. But once the alcohol flavor faded a bit there is some brown sugar/vanilla sweetness that saves the beer from being to boozy. MF-Very boozy beer with little to no carbonation. Overall-Better than most beer with such a high ABV. The sweetness manages to prevent it from being too overwhelming but I will probably stick to Tripels and Dubbels in the future.
