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.

shadey (1911) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Pour is a nice ruby red with initially a nice head that quickly diminishes to a ring of white cream. Aroma is sweet alcohol, and a touch of maybe fruit? Flavor is sweet fruit and alcohol. There is a little tang on the bottom side of the tongue. Finish is dry.

GregClow (2910) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 11, 2007
Bottle shared with blankboy, mds, jerc & mabel - courtesy of mds. Bright amber with a wispy head. Aroma of booze and bubblegum, with a faint spiciness. Flavour is overpoweringly sweet, woody, boozy - just really unbalanced and unappealing. And the label sucks, too.

TheBeerGod (5336) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2007
Bottle. Deep copper pour. Small foamy tan head. Aroma is very fruity (bananas, pears), with candi sugar, bourbon, vanilla, and soft wood. Very appetizing! Taste brings a lot of the bourbon notes forward. Sweet malts, vanilla, soft wood, bourbon, candied fruits, and sugar. Body is sticky and syrupy with soft carbonation. Medium-full overall. Mild alcohol warmth to this one as well. Finishes with more candi sugar, ripened fruits, sweet malts, vanilla, and bourbon. I rather enjoyed this!

MadIndian (2434) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2007
Bottle from Canals. Pours a coppery color with thin tan head. Big time fruity aroma with a hint of caramel malt. Big alcohol taste up front with a hint of fruit. This was good but if they blended the alcohol a little better it would have rocked.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Bottle. Puny, off-white, fizzy head that leads into clear somewhat sparkling reddish-orange hued body. Aromas of dark fruits, bananas, candied sugar, and bourbon. Flavor is sweet and finishes very dry (almost dissapears at end)-but bourbon flavor lingers a long time. Alcohol is very apparent in the burn. Light bodied. Lively carbonation. Very dry textured. I have to agree with those who would probably prefer this one without the bourbon barrel.************ Okay I decided to finish the glass before I add the rating and I am glad I did. I must say the burning is always present but it diminishes in severity and actually seems to blend with the rest of the flavors, letting the flavor show better. So if you are just trying this one, give it some time, it will get better.

blankboy (6263) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2007
Bottle (650ml) shared with GregClow, mds, jerc & mabel -- courtesy of mds. Pours a clear amber-orange with an average size diminishing off-white head. Very sweet aroma, sugary, with oak and spices. Flavour’s incredibly sugary sweet, boozy and bitter along with some oak and notes of fruit and spices. Medium bodied. Too sweet for my liking. Why do these guys keep ruining perfectly good beer by barrel-aging them, they’re rarely better?

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2007
Bootled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear reddish brown with a minimal head. Sweet malty aroma and yeasty aroma of figs, banana, cream, milky chocolate and oak.Full bodied with a malty flavour of fudge, banana, dark chocolate, vanilla, oak and alcohol. Long finish of chocolate, nuts, anise, banana, pepper, vanilla and alcohol. As it warms up, almost tart oaky notes shines through.

gottalottaibu (243) - charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 7, 2007
bottle. pours golden amber with a nice off white frothy head. decent lacing that holds on for most of the drink. spicy sweet aroma of whisky and caramel. medium mouthfeel with nice whisky/bourbon flavors on the side of the tongue and some great sweet milky flavors in the finish. very nice.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Draught: Aroma of bourbon and alcohol. Poured amber in color. Good lacing. Lightly sparkling. Clear. Flavor of bourbon and alcohol. Light to medium body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Bourbon and alcohol finish. For me, too much Bourbon.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
surffisher (198) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 4, 2007
22 oz. early 2007 bottle. Pours mostly clear amber with some distinct suspended sediment, starting with about a quarter inch off-white head that quickly dissipates to splotchy coverage and a ring around the edges. Aroma is sweet, slightly peppery with hints of the bourbon (incl. alcohol hotness) coming in on the finish. Flavor follows suite; quite sweet and carmely with some peppery phenolics. There are light woody and bourbony flavors but they are subdued and pleasant. Wood and bourbon aroma and flavors express more as the beer breathes and warms. Moderate body and carbonation gives it a nice full mouthfeel that is tempered by a hotness that burns the palate. Overall, I like this and think it has quite a lot of potential...seems like one that will benefit from fairly long aging to mellow the heat. Style-wise, this strikes me more as a strong old/stock ale (which is just fine by me). Oh, and in the 6-10 ounces I’ve sampled during this review, I definitely feel the alcohol!
