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.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Pours with an amber body topped by a medium to thick head with a good amount of lacing. It’s sweet and malty with notes of candy sugar and light notes of vanilla. Medium to full bodied, well carbonated and warming.

BlazerT (1105) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAR 15, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2017 Bottle. Sensoric. Vintage 2013. Light brown, opaque with tiny, almost none head. Slightly boozy in the aroma combined with nice moderate raisins, vanilla, caramel, candy-like, slightly woody and oaky. Almonds and yeasty. Lightly spicy. Taste is light heavy sweet lil the end of degustation. Finish is sweet, vanilla, slightly chemical. Medium to full body, oily and thick texture, slightly warming down the throat. In overall very sweet and not really complex brew, despite having been 4 years in the bottle the booziness is all around. Nice and simple combination of flavors. Could be less sweet an boozy.

3.9
carlom (58) - ITALY - MAR 10, 2017
Colore ambrato, schiuma media non persistente come ti aspetti, aromi di frutta candita e vaniglia. Al palato malto, caramello, toffee, corpo medio, nota alcolica finemente pungente dovuta alle botti di whisky, leggermente astringente. Corpo medio, sul finale permangono le noti della vaniglia e del legno delle botti. Una quadrupel che si avvicina alla tradizione belga con note marcate di botte, un po’ spigolosa.

jsporrer (1028) - 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.

trapped (3147) - New York, TURKEY - DEC 31, 2016
Bottle. Pours murky reddish brown with very small frothy beige head, woodsy aroma, medium carbonation, sweetish caramel taste with woodsy flavor and whisky undertones, smooth body, medium woodsy finish. Very smooth, well balanced and easy to drink.

3.6
Headbanger (3999) - 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 I’ve had it for a few months but otherwise pretty darn tasty.

60minuteman (1715) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2016
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.

Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - SEP 28, 2016
Quite strong and very malty at the same time as rich. Sweet and alcoholic, thick and greatly clouded,

MetalNHopHead (1976) - 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. There’s a bit of earthiness and some bread. This was the oldest Quad I’ve had so far. I have to conclude that it was an intriguing and rewarding experience.
