The beer comes in a copper, ruby color without much of ahead.

The aroma has some booze in the back with some brown sugar, molasses, spiciness, and a bit of dark fruit.

The flavor is different. Booze follows with some woodiness, brown sugar, toffee, and some toasty malt. There's some cherries, vanilla, spice, rum soaked raisin. Not much of a deep sweet fruit flavor from quads.

It's a boozy beer with a bit of caramel. It's not deep in its flavor with low carbonation. It almost tastes like a barrel aged doppelbock if anything. Definitely a sipper and lacks sweetness.

This is a "do-over" from the 3-13 review. This is a 2013 cork & cage version.

A - Pours a dark ruby copper color with a generous one fingered head initially and dies down very quickly to leave nothing on top.

S - Belgian candy spice, bourbon, caramel, figs, bready, and yeasty.

T - Very sweet with an assertive amount of bourbon, warming, and alcohol effervescence. Belgian candy sugar & spice, sweet toffee, figs, raisins, a slight hint of brown sugar.

M - Very thick for a quad with a full, slick feeling body and light carbonation.

O - Big and boozy but far superior to the 12 oz capped bottle being much richer and more flavorful.

A: into a goblet, center-pour produced a dark amber brown ale with a finger of tan foam for head. No lacing.

S: ripe dark fruits and boozy whiskey barrels, some hints of spices and molasses

T: fruity sugars and caramel toffee, oak and whiskey, holiday dessert spices and candy apples; woodsy

M: rather thin-bodied, no perceptible abv, smooth, very slight coating effect, just a touch of stickiness

O: having had their "Quad" quadrupel, I find this to be very similar, but with the additional of barrel aging, which produces that tell-tale whiskey barrel flavor overlay - certainly serves the beer well - a bit better than their Quad, but again, I find the beer to be good, but without the benefit of anything to really demand your attention.

I’m drinking the whiskey barrel aged Blasphemy. I don’t know if there’s any other version, I just want to make note of that.
A: Dark Reddish-Brown color with a light brown head that quickly dissipates.
S: Dark fruit aroma possibly from some dark caramel malt. A strong whiskey/alcohol aroma comes through as well. I’m also detecting some spiciness
T: Predominantly whiskey flavor with dark fruit and oaky qualities. Very slight residual bitterness (very, very slight) with a more prevalent sweet after-taste
M: Very nice and smooth, medium bodied with a warming sensation from the alcohol content
O: I really enjoyed this beer. It’s not like any quad I’ve ever had. This reminds me of sipping a class of scotch. Definitely to be enjoyed slowly with some friends.
