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.

Bomber. Pours brown with thin tan head. Aroma is brown sugar, dark fruit, and bourbon. Flavor is raisin, dark fruit, vanilla, bourbon and oak. Very interesting.

jflopsu (683) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Pours a light hazy light brown amber. Has a faint fruit aroma with prune and raisin. A strong wheat and even stronger malty fruit (prune and raisin) taste with oak. A strong dark fruit malt aftertaste.

Alusmamuts (549) - LATVIA - JAN 24, 2015
Amber, bit hazy with almost no head. Sweet fruity aroma. Sour and sweet, and once again sweet (well balanced, but too much for me) taste. Hazelnut notes, fruitiness.

kramer (5173) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber body under a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is super fruity and sweet with a hefty influence from the barrel, lots of bourbon, vanilla, and wood. The vanilla really melds well with the fruity notes of plum and fig. The flavor is quite boozy and bourbon focused. Lots of vanilla, tannic wood, dark fruits, moderate alcohol, caramel sweetness, and a bit of tobacco. Medium bodied and fairly sticky with fizzy carbonation. There’s not a whole lot of yeastiness in here, it’s clearly an ’American Quad’ and not much of a reflection of the Belgian classics.

Nocturne (912) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2014
750ml bottle. Slightly hazy reddish brown shade. Head fades to a ring. Aroma is big on whiskey and toffee. Taste has toffee, cherry, raisin and brown sugar, with the barrel working nicely to tie it all together. Seems most similar to La Trappe Quadrupel. One of the best US quads I’ve had, even if it is missing that last rung of complexity.

crossovert (8186) - Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2014
750ml bottle. DArk amber pour. It has some vanilla notes and a tartness that is not quite infected but enough to take away from the barrel and the quad-like flavor.

Franckg (130) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
Arômes de butterscoth et forte présence du whisky. En bouche, on goûte immédiatement un côté acidulé dont on connaît pas trop l’origine, plutôt inhabituelle pour ce genre de bière. S’en suit les eflluves de whisky et un léger sucre caramélisé.

GIJOE (707) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Pours a burnt red with a foamy, off-white head that reduces to thin film within a couple minutes. Some lacing. Nose is slightly boozy with sweet caramel and a hint of tart apple. Taste is on the sweet side, but quite well-balanced. Full-bodied brew with lively carbonation and a long, tangy finish. Very nice!

edgallow (2461) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 7, 2014
750ml bottle pours amber with a off white head. Aroma of sweet malts, oak and whiskey. Taste is whiskey, oak, malts and vanilla .

jmm635 (892) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Dark maroon in color with a thin filmy head and tons of sediment. Big sugary raisin aroma with noticeable alcohol. Very sweet. Full bodied and slick on the tongue with a long finish. Very tasty brew!

beautiful, slightly cloudy amber color; great aroma - mostly bourbon and oak; a great, smooth, strong beer; fruity Belgian yeast, malt, and lots of bourbon and oak notes; nice warm, alocohol finish
