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.

Bottle shared by Tmoney99 @ the Dilly Deli the night of a dissapointing Dogfish Head tasting. Thanks Tom. Pours a clear copper color with a healthy mostly lasting white head. The aroma is sweet fruits with a little spice. The wood comes in a little later with an alcohol burn. The flavor is taken over a bit by the bourbon especially as it warms. Other flavors are fruit and spices with a definite alcohol presence. Not bad, I wish there was a little more balance as it warmed.

[296-20070503] 1pt6floz (c/o mds, w/ him, blankboy, GregClow, jerc). Sweet woody caramel aroma. Clear, orange red body with a creamy bubbly head. Sweet and boozy flavour with round barrel wood and strawberry licorice characteristics. Medium-full body. Overdone with sweet alcohol -- bourbon barrel beers are just Not my cuppa tea.

12 oz. bottle via trade with jasonmech77 - Pours a hazy deep amber color with a 1/2 finger thick off white head that settled to a film after a few minutes. Very light spotty lacing. Aroma is oak, esters, and spice. Flavor is esters, light yeast, spice, light malt, and oak/bourbon. Medium body. A fairly smooth beer. Alcohol is noticeable, but doesnt upset my stomach like some high ABV beers do. A very nice sipping beer. Thanks Jason.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2007
22oz bottle. Aroma: Oak jumps right out with a wood and vanilla notes. Candi sugar, spice and yeast, light apple and raisin notes. Alcohol comes out a bit hot. Appearance: Pours a reddish amber in color reminiscent of iced tea. Hazy with some floaties. Bone colored head was full and foamy, but didnt last long. Fair lacing. Flavor: OAK! Woody and vanilla with some light nutty notes. Strong alcohol presence. Candi sugar, light fruitiness, spice and yeast. Medium dry finish. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Strong alcohol burn in back of mouth. Overall: Kind of a mess. Oak is too strong, alcohol is hot, and all the other flavors pale in comparison. Not good.

The oak overpowers the subtlety of the rest of of this beer. Alcohol is prett prevalent as well. Aromas of slight alcohol and faint yeast. Sweetness that sticks with you. The oak aging comes in the flavors. Gives a normally subtle beer some heft and body. The finish is very alcoholic. Pours a clear red color with lots of bubbles and an offwhite head. Not my favorite but a good effort from these guys.

i really liked this one, very sweet candi malty taste, has some alcohol presence, little bit of the bourbon presence, but not a whole lot.

Big ol bomber ... poured a nice sweet tea-colored reddish umber with just a thin top. The aroma is candied and sweet, but unique ... like a wicked Jolly Rancer or something. That crazy sweet thing is carried into the flavor; I cant quite peg it ... strawberry candy, maybe? Light bourbon. Warming, but not anywhere near as strong as youd think from a 11.8% beer. Dangerous.

Pours a one-finger white head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Clear copper amber color. alcohol and oak nose. Light-medium carbonation and heavy bodied. Flavor is sweet, alcohol, woody actually complex. Clean finish. Very warming. $8.00 for a 22oz bottle from Tullys Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a golden reddish hue. Almost no head at all( I must be the gentlest pourer in the world). This tastes like Dog Fish Head Immortale. The first few sips taste like medicine(chloreseptic cough medicine). The alcohol burn is overwhelming. I know its 11.8 abv., but I didnt expect to get hit over the head with it. I loved some earlier brews from this brewer(picked up in trade), but this is not one I want again.
