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.
