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.

Wow! Fruity esters mellowed by a vanilla touch. Itís not what I would call a ícompleteí beer because some elements feel forced and too deliberate; but hey, this thing is a damn nice sipper on, well, ANY night! Odd and unsatisfactory finish here--something vegetable and soy on the back end. Overall, Iím glad I picked it, but not recommend as re-buy at price point.

Itís heavy handed, it plays all itís cards right up front. People who donít love bourbon barrel aging might get tired of it before the bottle is empty, but Iím a sucker for oak. This beer pours medium brown with average head and carbonation. The aroma is vanilla, bananas, liquor, warm malt, and, of course, oak. Thatís the flavor, too. Nothing subtle and not really complex. Having said that, I enjoyed every predictable drop.

Aroma caramel, alcohol, woody, dark fruits, Appearance red, minimal head, Taste medium sweetness, heavy sweetness, Palate medium body, full body, sticky, Overall bottled on 4/20/15 drank on 4/20/16. There is no head on this beer at all. Maybe a slight presence of alcohol but it has mellowed out. Nice warmth down the throat. Hints of dark fruits and medium to heavy sweetness. I would suggest this beer to a friend.

It pours brown with some clouding. The head doesnít last very long. It has aromas of bread, plums, spices, alcohol and whiskey. The malt is very dominant in initial flavors with toast, a rich taste, caramel, alcohol, whisky elements, plums, and a bit of vanilla. The flavors work well together as part of the complexity of this particular brew. It feels moderate on the heavy side with a fair amount of alcohol warming. It a complex bitter-sweet finish.

Bottle. It poured a dark amber color with a tan head. The aroma was of grapes, raisins, oak, bread, malts and some toffee. The taste was similar to the aroma with more malts, dark fruits, vanilla with oak and booziness. Very tasty.
