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.

22oz bottle consumed last night but I was too sleepy to rate it afterwards.. Pours a very nice hue of copper with a short offwhite head that fades back pretty quick.. Rather odd aroma of caramel, bannana, and oak. Flavor is much more complex and delightful. Caramel, and candi sugar are first to arrive on the tongue, but soon in comes interesting vanilla, oak, bannana, and a fair amount of bourbon and spice warm the backside of this. Palate is wonderfully sweet and sticky with a lingering sweet finish. Quite an interesting brew...

22oz bomber from Florian’s. Tramslucent copper-brown body with under a half inch of off-white head. Banana and woodiness dominate the aroma. Wood, banana, and spice all play prominent roles in the flavor. Lighter-bodied. Little carbonation to speak of. A pretty decent beer - more mellow and drinkable than its non-barrel-aged cousin.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 17, 2007
12oz bottle. Dark orange, red color with a small off white head. Large amount of protein particulate. Heavy banana and candied citrus esters, caramel, dark alefruit, and alcohol in the aroma. Heavy oaken vanilla and alcohol, caramel and raisinbread malt character. Complex dark alefruit with residual vanilla and fruity esters then manifest. Long residual banana finish with vestiges of bourbon. Mouthfeel is heavy, somewhat hot and sticky.

Pours a deep amber with a huge light tan head. The aroma is loaded with oak, bourbon, caramel, and bisucit. Flavor is malty with the caramel and biscuit. Other flavors are oak, bourbon, and a slight roasted and hoppish finish. In addition the finish has a nice smoothnes.

BleacherBum (177) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - APR 16, 2007
Big fan of the Belgian beers, but this one was just too overwhelming. Aroma was bourbon, caramel and big alcohol. Flavor was more of the same: Nice sweet malty flavors with vanilla, but the oaky bourbon/alcohol flavors ran over everything like a locomotive. Burning in the stomach confirms this. Not a bad brew, but just too hot right now. I’ll put one down and see how it tastes after some aging.

Dark Amber Color with White Ring. Sweet Caramel and Bourbon Notes on the Nose. Alot of Sweet Fruit, Dry Bread, Rye, Light Toast, Nice Warming Throughout, and a Dry Bread, But Sweet Aftertaste. Bourbon Aging Worked This Brew Over Nicely.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 14, 2007
Bottle thanks to Ty5592: Pours a transparent copper amber with a thin-lacing ring of white head. Aroma of sweet caramel candy bourbon with vanilla notes and some toasted malt. Body starts fairly-full and caramely sweet drying somewhat with buttery popcorn notes toward a drier, earthy, warming finish. An interesting beer, but would be better in a non-bourbon barrel.
