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.

Brew42 (62) - - AUG 22, 2013
Pours dark brown with a thin white head. Smells-Vanilla, caramel,bourbon. Tastes- The bourbon flavor was a bit over powering. But once the alcohol flavor faded a bit there is some brown sugar/vanilla sweetness that saves the beer from being to boozy. MF-Very boozy beer with little to no carbonation. Overall-Better than most beer with such a high ABV. The sweetness manages to prevent it from being too overwhelming but I will probably stick to Tripels and Dubbels in the future.

jsporrer (853) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2017
Pours a deep iced tea brown with a big creamy tan head. Strong aroma of sweet caramel with some earthy woody notes and a big whiff of whiskey. Smooth with sweetness and warmth. Medium body with a light sticky mouth feel, Smooth finish with some warmth but no harshness. Decent lingering aftertaste. Just a tad too boozy for me but still fairly enjoyable.

Headbanger (3945) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2016
750ml bottle 12/3/16 (CMH-OH)-46 in Trappist Glass-Pours a ruby red with a very small ring for a head. Aroma of alcohol, malt, and sweetness. Taste of the same with caramel, toffee, and dried fruit. This medium to full bodied brew is pretty hot and Ive had it for a few months but otherwise pretty darn tasty.

Bottle bought 7/2012 pours ruby red almost purple few heads. Light-medium body. Heated on impact then the vanilla and berries/plum come through before finishing with considerable heat. Alc IS noticeable. Really smooth for almost 12%. Impressive stuff. Wish I held on to it another 4 years.

MetalNHopHead (1697) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Thanks perhaps in part to the high level of alcohol and quite a bit of age, Blasphemy was tasty enough to make me utter a few blasphemous phrases. Brownish red color. Fruity, toasty, and mildly funky aromas. Big note of red fruit and ribes in the flavor with a little tartness coming through. Alcohol is almost entirely hidden. Theres a bit of earthiness and some bread. This was the oldest Quad Ive had so far. I have to conclude that it was an intriguing and rewarding experience.

HuskerTan (1880) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle. A- Cranberry juice, oak, subtle whiskey, very subtle smoke. A- Red brown color, clear liquid, minimal tan head. T- Oak, whiskey, cranberry, cherry, subtle smoked malt. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, complex finish. O- For being a 2.5 year old Quad I was shocked with how fruity and effervescent this beer was. Really easy to drink for 12% too. Quite tasty. I could drink a ton of this.

libertine (433) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - JUN 22, 2016
Pours a dark burgundy with a think khaki head that quickly dissipates. Lots of wood and whiskey on the nose with notes of toffee, raisins, prune with a heavy malt presence. The wood and whiskey attack your palate followed by flavors of raisins, dark fruits and caramel. Full bodied, moderate carbonation, medium viscosity. The wood gives you a lasting dry finish in the roof of your mouth and the alcohol is hot in the throat. The intro says that this is not overaged but my guess is that the whiskey barrels were freshly emptied since you have an aggressive whiskey presence. I am glad it is aggressive because it fits so well.
