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.

Steeeve (326) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Dark, cloudy amber pour with a quarter inch head that appears to be ever so slightly beige. Boozy aroma wafts up after a swirl of my snifter, unleashing a barrage of dark fruits. Strong notes of prunes, raisins, figs, and candi sugar, with an undertone of earthy barley. Subtle hints of vanilla and oak as it warms, and definitely more than a suggestion of bourbon. Taste is warm and sweet, a robust body enveloping the tongue and coating the mouth for several minutes. Sweet and fruity up front, somewhat of a blast of booze flavor, but not too much alcohol heat. Vanilla and oak flavors are very pronounced, though the bourbon itself seems overwhelmed by the plethora of other flavors. The oak really comes through in the aftertaste left on the tongue, and I found myself taking several minutes between sips to truly appreciate the complexities. This is how a bourbon barrel quad should be done. I’m not always easily impressed, but this beer elicited an audible "WOW" from my lips.

Bottle from Growler Spot. Pours a dark swirly amber with a thin ring of off white head. Aroma of oak, hints of booze, and dark fruits. Taste his with the fruit up front then BAM oak with a lasting booze finish.

olio (5854) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2014
75 cl bottle @ PBF IX.
Pours cloudy mahogany color with a small head. Slight cardboard on the nose, this is a bit older bottle, some caramel malts, rye, faint hop notes and toffee. Caramel malts and some syrup on the aroma, wood and faint hay. Good.

lusikka (5927) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2014
750 ml bottle @ PBF IX. Pours a dark amber colour with a small head. Aroma of sweet apricot, bourbon, some licorice notes and herbs. Rich flavour of caramel, bourbon, some wooden notes, sticky syrupy sweetness and butter. Full bodied and sticky mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Alcohol is quite strong herre, and I doubt if this really is 11,8% ABV.

Pours dark reddish brown with a tiny head. Aroma of aged cellar notes, oak, wood, ripe fruits, yeast and raisins. Taste is smooth, sweet and boozy with some syrup, ripe fruits, raisins and yeast. Finish is sweet, sticky and warming with some oak, wood and stingy whisky. Okay.

rbrazell (1568) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2014
2011 vintage thanks to Matt for sharing up at Proof. Deep amber, bordering brown with a small white head. Aroma is on more of a rum aroma, sweet cane syrup, brown sugar, dates, toffee pudding and caramel. Sweet flavor, oh so sweet, cloying. Can’t do it.

Bottle. Deep tub with a thick off white head and lots of floaties. Aroma is whiskey, banana and soy sauce. Taste adds a bizarre chicken broth aftertaste and some wood. Thick mouthfeel and substantial booziness. Not a fan.
