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.

75 cL bottle, thanks to Myrup. Pours hazy deep orange with a creamy white head. Quite spiced and slight chemical aroma. Flavour is quite nice raisin flavoured, somewhat sweet malty and slight spiced. Ends mellow with a spice note. Nice flavour, but aroma isn’t great.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2007
(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of sliffy. Pours a cloudy, amber golden with an off-white head. Fat vinous aroma of overripe fruit and some yeast. Fairly full in body, sweetish caramel flavours and overripe fruit. Touches of vanilla and wood and a very warming alcohol in the finish. Dry and lightly bitter finish. A nice one. 280907

omhper (19803) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2007
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear ruby, creamy albeit brief head. Woody, perfumy almondy nose. Very sweet with thick, almost oily mouthfeel. Almondy yeast character, butterscotch and strawberries are being pushed back by oak and bourbon. Very potent and malty, reminiscent of a brandy. Intense. The wood is well strong, but it still works fine.

madmitch76 (15834) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2009
30th May 2008. Strong ale, almost salty like a strong barleywine. Well balanced by a prominent woody and vanilla tones. Silky palate. Very drinkable.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 17, 2009
Bottle at Akkurat, Stockholm, vintage 2007
Hazy color, red to dark amber, with a medium sized creamy head. The aroma can be perceived already while pouring the glass; there is some malt, caramel, delicate oak and light glue. The body is well structured, there is a strong malt flavor and, either the age or the barrel, it seems to be quite oxidized; medium sweet; there is some light vanilla flavor too, and a touch of light liquorice. The final is balanced, the bitterness is respectable, and the alcohol starts warming the throat. It’s a good, solid beer, but I would not drink it too often and it’s missing some exciting edges.
Suggestion: even if I like my beers with low carbonation, this sturdy beer is better appreciated with a slightly higher level of carbonation.

yngwie (13945) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2008
Bottle, 12oz. Pours a nice, translucent copper body under a beige head. Vanilla, oak, sugars, some alcohol and dried fruits in the rather intense and complex aroma. The kind of aroma one could enjoy for a looong time. The flavor is sugary and alcohol-warming, with oak, dried fruits and hoppy bitterness as well. The bitterness was unexpected, but sure likeable. Full body. It has a long finish with oak, dried fruits and caramel. And bitterness. A really lovely 1 hour beer. (080216)

Theis (13761) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2008
Bottle at home - club tasting. Clear dark red/brown - white head. Sweetness, fruity, berries, red berries, licorice, yeasty.... all the quadrupel caracters, with some wood on top... vanilla, oak, wood. Fantastic.
