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.

Clear medium-dark amber plum colored body. Big sweet bourbon and black cherry nose, hot with alcohol. Biting and hot on the tongue, nipping with a good sting of alcohol, and while usually I don’t like that, it’s quite good, the sweetness certainly helps. Comforting sweet dark cherry and cedar wood flavors, a lot of sugar and a lot of alcohol. Warming, almost too strong and hot, but again, there’s something about this I just like, and I’m not much a fan of Weyerbacher as it is.

Poured from bottle. Did a side by side tasting with the Quad. Could not beleive the difference in the flavor of these two...Poured a dark amber, slight head...Strong aroma of candy, cherry and liquor...First taste was wild. Very strong alcohol up front. Got better as it was sipped...Tasted vanilla and cherries, and some roasted flavor...It was good. It was unique for me, and it was great doing it side by side with the original form of the beer, but the alcohol was way strong in this for me.

Pours ruby/amber with a foamy tan head. Strong fruity aroma, with notes of candy sugar, cherries, a light hint of caramel and vanilla. First sip is boozy, with sweet and sour fruity undertones. Under the slightly overwhelming alcohol is a semi-sweet, malty, candied cherry tartness. Despite the alcohol, there is still some decent flavor there. Palate is medium, a bit alcoholic, and tart. This would be great, but the alcohol masks alot of the flavor.

bgburdman9 (859) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2007
Poured a clear med brown color with a average head that did not last at all. Aroma was of light bourbon, vanilla, belgian yeast, and alcohol. Flavor was pretty tastey actually. I got some dark fruits, vinous notes, bourbon, and a lot of alcohol. This was actually not bad for a american belgian. Although it is a little hot it is very fresh so maybe in a few months.

Wow! One of the biggest burns I have had in awhile. One is good enough for me. Very strong taste of alcohol and vanilla. Probably going to get me drunk real fast.

Same banana aroma as the quad with hints of the oak. Light amber color, darker than the quad. Has the same size head as the quad. Starts malty like the quad with a oak tang to the finish. Not sweet for the amount of alcohol in it.

imzugzug (103) - Bechtelsville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2007
Wow, this one smacks you upside the head and makes no apologies about it. Vanilla and alcohol dominates the aroma. Next to no head after a mild pour. Dark copper in the glass. Burn, burn burn in the back of the throat. The intense alcohol burn is only mellowed mildy by the rich bourbon and oak flavors. One of these is more than enough for me, although I did get a spare to lay down for a couple of years.

lamas (1426) - Washington DC, USA - APR 8, 2007
22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear dark amber with a small British khaki head. Aroma features a good deal of vanilla beans, caramel and bananas. Medium-bodied and very well-balanced. The alcohol burns throughout. Plenty of rich caramel and creamy vanilla upfront. Oakiness, green grapes, figs and brown sugar in there too. Finishes with more alcohol. I don’t normally care for these alcohol bombs, but this is pretty drinkable.
