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.

"I don’t remember the quad being quite this fruity so maybe a lot of that is from the barrels? Strong whiskey influence, tons of fruit and some Dry yeast. Very pleasant combo. It does taste like whiskey and not bourbon, though. Maybe it changes year to year..."

Deep amber color with a foamy beige head. Nose of buttery bourbon and rich sugar. I like the warming use of the barrel, but this beer is too sweet for a ggod quad. Lots of white sugar with some toffee, dried fruit and rich malt syrup. Too bad the base beer isn’t more complex.

Corked 75 cl bottle @ home. Pours hazy reddish brown with a lot of sediment and an off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are dried fruit, liquorice, wood, yeast and sugar - with an alcoholic finish.

Transfer from BA review on 8-18-12 - Poured from 750 ml bottle into snifter glass Appearance – Pours a lightly hazed ruby-brown color. The off-white head upon pouring has only a light retention. The fast fading head, when gone, leaves a persistent foam film on the surface of the brew. Smell – The smell is heavy of dark fruits of cherry and prune. Other sweet aromas of a caramel nature mare also mixed within. A bourbon-boozy smell with accents of vanilla and oak are there as well and when mixed with the sweeter smells create a warming sweet smell. Taste – A sweet caramel taste is big up front, but soon melds with a good dose of dark fruits. The cherry and plum flavors soon begin overwhelming the caramel. Around the same time a yeasty spice and boozy taste starts to enter the tongue. The yeast spice flavor remains relatively light through the rest of the taste but the alcohol gets stronger. A bourbon and almost rum like flavor get big, where some lighter notes of vanilla and a oak come to the tongue as well. In the end a warming rum and bourbon soaked dark fruit flavor are left on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is thick and creamy. It is very smooth feeling on the tongue, allowing the flavors of a sweet and boozy nature to soak in; taking these tastes to their maximum. The lighter carbonation level only accentuates the smooth body helping to create this creamy thick brew. Overall –A wonderful sipper with some big flavor. Sit, sip, chat with a good pal, and enjoy. It’s delicious.
