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.

Pours a one-finger white head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Clear copper amber color. alcohol and oak nose. Light-medium carbonation and heavy bodied. Flavor is sweet, alcohol, woody actually complex. Clean finish. Very warming. $8.00 for a 22oz bottle from Tullyís Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a golden reddish hue. Almost no head at all( I must be the gentlest pourer in the world). This tastes like Dog Fish Head Immortale. The first few sips taste like medicine(chloreseptic cough medicine). The alcohol burn is overwhelming. I know its 11.8 abv., but I didnít expect to get hit over the head with it. I loved some earlier brews from this brewer(picked up in trade), but this is not one I want again.

The aroma has some okay creaminess and spices but mostly itís just alcohol. Here I am, it screams! Also, the flavor screams the same. Not getting much bourbon notes, itís almost giving me a headache. It may be blasphemy that he put his quad in bourbon barrels, but really, he probably shouldnítíve.

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 15, 2007
Medium clear amber, slight fizziness in the carbonation, but still held a good head. Aroma of cherries, a bit of wood, and clear alcohol. Flavor had more dark cherry notes, wood, faint bourbon, and almost overpowering alcohol fusel burn. Once it hit room temperature, a touch of vanilla and caramel emerged. Not my favorite from a brewer I generally love.

aracauna (3495) - Georgia, USA - JUN 15, 2007
Pours a slightly hazed red with a good head. The aroma first jumps out as bourbon, but as it warms, the interplay of aromatic components starts to masquerade as pineapple and coconut, making this a very tropical seeming beer. There is a good bit of heat in the back of this and a lingering light sweetness.

egajdzis (6067) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Poured a caramel color with a medium sized, off white head, that left light, sticky, lacing to the side of the glass. Aroma of dried fruits, toffee, vanilla, raisins, gingerbread, caramel, and strong alcohol. Taste of raisins, char, citrus fruits, bourbon, caramel, vanilla, dry, oak, and more alcohol. I think this Weyerbacher would age pretty well.

MullMan (1099) - New York, USA - JUN 8, 2007
thick foamy light tan head, clear copper body and yellow gold at edges. aroma is sweet syrupy malt and a little dried fruits in granola. alcohol aroma is like whiskey/bourbon. flavor starts syrupy strong malt, then goes right to bourbon. heat is definately there, a little bit of caramel malt in the background. some oak there but overpowered by the alcohol. I agree completely that this should be categorized as an ASA. some dark fruits as the beer gets warmer. pretty sticky.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - JUN 7, 2007
I thought it would be a flavor that is dominated by bourbon, the bourbon is there for sure, especially after warming up, but its subdued enough for fruit, and wood to come through. very drinkable for the alc% a good bomber to share, which I did, very nice!

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 4, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2007 Bottle from Foodery II in Philly. Pours a translucent brown with a tan head, with nice lacing. This has a dominating aroma of bourbon, with some sweet malts and syrup in the background. Medium mouthfeel and fine carbonation. Initial flavor is that of a quad- dark fruits, yeast, and spice. This quickly transitions to a stong and sweetl bourbon midde. Finish is boozy and warming, with some yeastiness that lingers. Way too much bourbon characteristics for my tastes, making this somewhat one dimensional. If you like bourbon, by all means give this a shot.

JdKrone (15) - West Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - JUN 3, 2007
Bottle to glass. Clear brown pour with yellowish head. Lots of aroma from the moment I opened it. Very transitional in taste and around different areas of the mouth and tongue. You can taste the oak it was aged in and really taste the bourbonesque nature of it. A little too oily on the palate for me, and the first swig i took almost put me on my ass as if I took a shot of Jack. Like no beer Iíve ever tried, however I was pleasantly surprised and look forward to trying another. Thanks Hammerstone.
