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.

SteveOrz85 (233) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2015
2015 edition. Poured from large quarked bottle into tulip. Poured with big fizzy head which disapeared lighting fast. Color is ruby amber. Semi sweet aroma with notes of cherries and rasins. Taste is lightly sweet up front with a touch of bitter near finish. Notes of dried fruit and bread with some oak near finish. Light presence of tanins. Carbonation is moderate. The taste of alcohol is present but not overwhelming. Beer is great overall. Barrel age character not as strong as expected but well done, not overdone. Have had quad twice and enjoyed. This was first try at blasphemy and I am not disappointed.

Aromat: wyraźne nuty alkoholowe typowe dla whisky z przyjemną wanilią na czele. W tle karmel, melanoidyny, cukier kandyzowany, wiśnie w czekoladzie. Mimo sporego alkoholu, bardzo przyjemnie. Barwa: czerwona (miedziana) względnie klarowna, choć z powodu lekkiego naruszenia butelki widoczne pływające drobinki. Piana ecru, drobno pęcherzykowa. Niewielka i niemal natychmiast zanikająca. Smak: słodycz, owoce (wiśnie), cukier, wanilia, lekka czekolada. Wyraźna nuta alkoholowa. Goryczka lekko zaznaczona, delikatna i krtka. Krągła do tęgiej pełnia, umiarkowane do niskiego wysycenie i wyraźnie alkoholowa, rozgrzewająca przełyk końcwka oraz oleista konsystencja.

Very complex and nuanced. Solid structure with a good balance. I was able to pick up on barrel characteristics but they werent overpowering. I would buy this again and maybe try and cellar it for a year or so just to see the changes.

jflopsu (1412) - 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 (1635) - 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 (6313) - 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. Theres not a whole lot of yeastiness in here, its clearly an American Quad and not much of a reflection of the Belgian classics.

Nocturne (1917) - 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 Ive had, even if it is missing that last rung of complexity.

crossovert (11806) - Chicago, 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.

Armes de butterscoth et forte prsence du whisky. En bouche, on gote immdiatement un ct acidul dont on connat pas trop lorigine, plutt inhabituelle pour ce genre de bire. Sen suit les eflluves de whisky et un lger sucre caramlis.

GIJOE (1106) - 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!
