look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

spring 2012 version purchased at the RT 8 Giant Eagle for only 8 bucks.

A - Damn for almost 12 percent I got almost two inches of head that doesn't seem too fizzy which is a good start. Color is a dark amber brown but clear.

S - Smell is also very pungent I get strong oak tones, caramel like sweetness, and also some dark fruit. Little to no solvent alcohol smell which is also good.

T - Like others said the ABV is well masked and you get some raisin/fig like taste but the star is the sweet caramel like toffee sweetness that brings the whole thing together. Not sure where people are actually getting any heat from this since I got no warming feeling or burn on the palate just sweet fruit and oak. It's quite good.

M - Syrup like consistency yet has bubbly consistency to easily roll on the palate. Quite good.

Overall I really like this beer. Sure it doesn't have a ton of dark fruit character but it is a great high ABV quite that hides it quite well. Worth a try.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Hazy caramel orange colour with a thin layer of fine beige bubbles. Solid collar with a bit of spotty lacing. Fruity aroma, some banana, coconut flesh, oak, mild vanilla, and a bit of caramel. Same in the flavour, but with additional oak and sweetness, it's also got an earthy and bready character, plus alcohol towards the end and a lot of heat in the finish. The sweetness really seems to be reigning in the alcohol here, and it's needed. The body is definitely on the full side with plenty of carbonation and a fair bit of dryness. Lots of warmth that stuns the tongue too. This one really seems like a car wreck, but somehow it hangs together. I'm not sure how Weyerbacher pulls that off in some of these big beers, but the result is pretty good here.

22oz bomber poured into a chalice

Pours a hazy burnt orange with a tight off-white cap. No staying power and minimal lacing. A good amount of active carbonation.

Very astringent, medicinal nose. Fruit, woods/outdoors, ethanol, very complex and rough. Oak, vanilla, cherries, booze, and a band aid funk.

Wow, big dose of bourbon here. Soft vanilla rises about midway through and gives a rather sweet finish to mask the alcohol burn. Cherries, plums, oak, and a medicinal--solvent quality.

Big and billowy, yet soft and supple. Creamy in the right spots, but the alcohol burn take a good amount away from this score.

This is a tough beer to get through because of the alcoholic heat. It is very complex and really needs to be sipped. It's too bad the booze is so forefront on this beer, everything else seems to be in check and right where it needs to be.

Big thanks to DrJay for sending this my way for BC2.

Pours a hazed orange/copper, thin off white head, no lace, settles to a thin ring, unhealthy looking. Smell is caramel, alcohol, fusels, raisin, oak, banana, bit malty, typical Weyerbacher but somewhat appealing. Taste is toffee, oak, raisins, sweet fusel middle, lots of alcohol, solid bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, but feels slightly syrupy, low carbonation, lots of heat. Pretty good for Weyerbacher, lots of fusel but works okay in this one. Thanks Jay!

750ml. Rusty orange pour, pretty clear. A layer of fine off white bubbles.

Aroma, grape, some red fruit, caramel. Maybe a little yeast.

Taste, a good dose of malt, caramel and some brown sugar, light molasses. Vanilla, almost like there was some oak aging. Finish is kind of a sweet tea.

Medium bodied, the fine carbonation makes it feel almost creamy. There is a good dose of the abv. Probably best shared.

This was a little better than what I was expecting from the reviews. It is big and warm, but the flavors are very good. Goes to show you need to make up your own mind.

The new bottle stood out to me on the shelf. Reviewed from notes.

A- Slightly cloudy dark body with a light tan head. Foamy, fine bubbled cap has decent retention. Good pillow and ring leave thick spotty lace.

S- Fairly bourbon forward here with nice fresh oak, vanilla and subdued whiskey hints. Some banana and raisin but good smooth barrel influence.

T- Yeast moves into the spotlight here. Spiced raisins, banana and clove esters, general Belgian yeast spice work well with oak, vanilla and whiskey. Some cherry and apple fruit hints as well.

MF- Oily thick body with warming from alcohol. Lower end carbonation finishes slightly spicy.

A nice Quad flavor blends smoothly with whiskey barrels.

Poured on the warm side too long out of the fridge with a smallish, somewhat fizzy, tan head and no lace. Color is a clear orange amber brown with no bubble trails. Aroma is malt, sherry, dark ripe fruit, with a little oak and vanilla. Flavor's much like nose with sweet front and center, tapered with some bitter and a tiny bit of tang. Body is good, full and round, true to style, but carbonation is a little soft. Finish is like flavor, lingering, and has no off characteristics although the alcohol give only the barest hint of the power. Good beer, but a little does go for a distance.

I drank this from a bottle into a chalice.

It pours a medium brown, almost a dark tea. There is light tan finger head high, lasts about 1 minute with good lacing.

The aroma is light with sweet malts, caramel, and banana.

The taste is so-so kinda of similar to Rochefort but a Rochefort that has kind of gone bad.

Mouthfeel is ok, ok drinkability. Check that 5 sips in I have to dump it. Not good.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a murky copper/cloudy golden color with a two finger white head. The head dissipated pretty rapidly, which is expected because of the ABV.

Aromas of white grape and possibly honey. The oakiness is there but not overpowering at all. Smells a little musky as well.

The taste starts off with some sugary/white white flavors but then the alcohol shows up a little. Finishes with an oakiness and a little more honey sweetness. I really enjoy this beer because each of the above flavors play an equal role and don't fight with one another.

Beer starts out thick and solid and still finishes fairly dry because of the oak aging. Definitely a sipper, though.

This is a good, after-dinner, sitting-around-the-fireplace sort of beer. Solid overall!

Thanks to sholland119, one of the finest traders &/or members of BA, for two bottles of this fine brew. When I heard it was being discontinued, & being the only of the "regular" lineup I hadn't had, I needed to try it. Scott was my man on the spot & he never disappoints!

I liked the Weyerbacher Quad a lot, so I was looking forward to this and holy hell, is it good.

Screw the smell & appearance, this brew rocked my world with the very first sip, even fridge-cold, out of the pint glass. I know I shouldn't be sipping this like a glass of lemonade, should let it warm a bit, but I can't help it. All the full flavors of the original Quad are still here, lent a helping hand by the wood, which lends a marvelous dry, lean quality to the beer, & just the barest hint of bourbon that also serves to augment, rather than overpower, the rest of the brew. At 11.8%, I could easily & happily drink these until I woke up with a dog licking my face, my wallet gone, only one shoe, and one leg over the curb in a puddle. Does that warrant a good drinkability score?

This is the best Quad I've had, hands down, including one that's prominent in the Best of BA. Subtle, sweet, woody, bourbony, drinkable...damn. I need to get some more of these. Scott? You still out there?

This is one killer beer. Absolutely top-notch.

A-Cloudy orange, almost ruby, not much carbonation, half a finger head.

S-Alcohol, some darker fruits and plums.

T-Dark fruits, some alcohol, wood no bitterness, poor balance.

M-Light, not much carbonation at all and a tad watery.

O-Poor balance, alcohol head, this beer was not that good, and it had been aged for a few months. Was expecting better.

4.14/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured from 750 ml bottle into snifter glass

Appearance – Pours a lightly hazed ruby-brown color. The off-white head upon pouring has only a light retention. The fast fading head, when gone, leaves a persistent foam film on the surface of the brew.

Smell – The smell is heavy of dark fruits of cherry and prune. Other sweet aromas of a caramel nature mare also mixed within. A bourbon-boozy smell with accents of vanilla and oak are there as well and when mixed with the sweeter smells create a warming sweet smell.

Taste – A sweet caramel taste is big up front, but soon melds with a good dose of dark fruits. The cherry and plum flavors soon begin overwhelming the caramel. Around the same time a yeasty spice and boozy taste starts to enter the tongue. The yeast spice flavor remains relatively light through the rest of the taste but the alcohol gets stronger. A bourbon and almost rum like flavor get big, where some lighter notes of vanilla and a oak come to the tongue as well. In the end a warming rum and bourbon soaked dark fruit flavor are left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is thick and creamy. It is very smooth feeling on the tongue, allowing the flavors of a sweet and boozy nature to soak in; taking these tastes to their maximum. The lighter carbonation level only accentuates the smooth body helping to create this creamy thick brew.

Overall –A wonderful sipper with some big flavor. Sit, sip, chat with a good pal, and enjoy. It’s delicious.

A 22oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. I was trying to compare this to Quad, and found this one a little more interesting. It had a dark amber color with a thin head. It had a sweet, fruity aroma, with a vinous character. An explosion of taste. Fruity, some chocolate, yeasty, and wine. I thought it was very smooth and mellow. However, I don't think I'd drink this and Quad together in one sitting again. Next time, Blasphemy alone.

12oz single, no BS

appearance: poured into my de koninck chalice, clear amber body, beige bubbly head with little retention

smell: thick caramel malts, sweet alcohol, soaked cherry, a touch of oak, pretty much just a mashup of malty sweetness

taste: my god is this beer strong. thick layers of spicy alcohol, huge malty sweetness, thick caramel, spicy with a big burning/tingling sensation. heavy carbonation, oak provides a splintery edge but i typically like the oak a bit smoother.

mouthfeel: thick, chewy, spicy

drinkability: man, tough

Bomber bought on 6/07, so at least 3.5 years old. I'd forgotten how bad I thought this was until I looked up the review just now. Decent carbonation, looks fine. Smell is pretty good, really nice vanilla notes, but hot.
Taste is the the same, nice barrel notes at first, hints of bread pudding, and them bam - red hot fusels, finishes like a gulp of cheap vodka. As my palate adjusted, which happened faster then I expected (and noticed happened in my last notes - is it the brew or intoxication), I really enjoyed the underlying oak aged quad flavors - but the burn in my gullet persisted as a reminder this would no doubt be better at 10%, unless they could clean up the ferment at this higher gravity. Would have been fun to age for like 6 years, but in my experience, fusels never really disappear.

First review, 09-01-2007, from which it was scored:
---
Poured from a 22oz bomber (thx yobdoog!) into my New Belgium goblet, Blasphemy is a slightly hazed amber with a 2 finger, off-white head, that fades fairly quickly to a steady skim that leaves light lace.

Smell is very rich and sweet, more candi then fruits though, with some yeasty spice and lots of rubbing alcohol fusels.

Unfortunately, the taste is just as heavy on the solvents, not as sweet but very boozy, bourbon with a hint of cherries and black pepper. Like the other oaked Weyerbachers, there's a very enjoyable vanilla presence. Sadly, it's the only pleasant taste, and doesn't mange to hide the plasticy phenols that are running rampant. There is another, more subtle flavor towards the finish that just seems off, like spoiled salted vegetables or something. Not sure what it is, maybe the oak, or diactyl that isn't so obviously butterscotch? After really enjoying Insanity (and Prophecy, albeit less so), this is quite the disappointment. Letting it breath a bit may have helped, but if it wasn't so hard to drink, I'd never have know that...although it went from bad to ok, I'm still hesitent to bump up the score too much just b/c it's getting me drunk in a hurry! Sorry about the low score guys, but what can I say? I'm not impressed!

The mouthfeel is on the thicker side of average for a quad, a little under-attenuated, leaving a corn syrup stickiness in it's wake.

This was not very drinkable. It's super high ABV, tastes super strong, and generally not very good. I'd wager 999/1000 average beer drinkers would take one sip of this and say it sucks. Fans of quads, big beers, and weyerbacher may be more forgiving, but it's probably just the alcohol clouding their judgment after they power through a bottle of this beast! I've actually got another bottle of this in the cellar, from a trip to NY earlier this summer, that I'm now certainly in no hurry to break into. We'll see how a few years treat this. Right now it's pretty rough, like drinking like a sweet/weak brandy, 22 oz at a time! I honestly doubt it will really improve that drastically, but I'll surely forget (or maybe never forget!) about this one long enough that who knows?

Bottle poured at Tipples Rare and Barrel Aged Beer Tasting on July 13, 2014. Pours a lighter amber color, mostly clear, with a creamy off white head on top. Smells like nearly straight neat whiskey booze and not much else here, maybe some extra sweetness from the malts. Flavor is a bit harsh with sweet candi sugar, light spices, some caramel, vanilla, and lots of straight phenolic booziness. Body is medium, not standing up to the barrels, with low to medium carbonation. Overall this was a bit hot for me, with the whiskey masking the nice hearty sweet flavors from the quad.

750mL bottle poured into snifter

Pours a clouded auburn color with some ruby hues. A thin beige head fades quickly leaving some bubbled lacing and thin film.

Plenty of fruit scents with pear, apple, and dates. Some oak and bourbon with spice. Light warmth and vanilla, sweetness as well.

Rich and warm up front with candied fruit notes. Burnt sugar with dates and some apple/pear tones. Sticky and somewhat sweet with oak and vanilla bourbon tones and a dash of spice. Finishes sweet and warm.

Fuller medium body, decent carbonation, sticky and full on the tongue. This bottle definitely benefited from about 6 months of age, as the harsh boozy tones mellowed out and allowed the fruit and oak flavors to shine through. I'm glad I have another bottle or two.

This poured a hazy burnt auburn with a bit of white head. It smelled like prunes and molasses with wild yeast and honey wheat malt, and a bit of citrus hops. It tasted like honey wheat and barley malt, with strong orange hops, and a hint of oakey prunes and molasses. It was fairly thick with lots of carbonation, and had a bitter aftertaste with alcohol warming. Overall this had a clean, bold flavor that was surprisingly bright. It had noticeable alcohol and a lasting aftertaste, which made more of a sipping beer, although still quite enjoyable. It didn't have as much oak in the flavor as I expected. I'd like to try this one again after it's been aged a few years.

A-deep brownish amber color with some hues of red, very hazy. thin barely one finger of kahki colored head that dissipates quickly

S-the nose is quite nice and brings the oak and bourbon through right off the bat. there is some sweet dark fruit, dark tart cherry and a hit of the alcohol at the back

T-this beer keeps getting better as i move through the review. no taste is overpowering and it starts with a nice blend of the oak and a light taste of bourbon, there is a sweet malt backbone that has some caramel followed by some sweet cherry flavor and even a hint of citrus, the belgian yeast, clove and touch of banana also become present

M-very full bodied almost chewy with a smooth texture, almost syrupy that leaves a warming from the alcohol as you finish the sip

D-this has a great flavor and is very smooth, it is extremely thick and the alcohol is prevalent. great beer, very strong!

750ml bottle into a goblet.

A: Pours a semi-cloudy chestnut color. The head...well, it sucks. Not even a finger high (off-white shade), with a fizzy texture similar to cola and horrible retention. No lacing, natch - but I do get some alcohol legs on the side of the glass.

S: Nice smell. I don't get the vibrant dark fruits I do from the best Belgian quads, but the whiskey tone helps to compensate somewhat with touches of oak and vanilla. Some nuttiness comes through as well. Letting it open up doesn't really improve it, but it doesn't deteriorate, either.

T: It's fruitier than the aroma indicated, in a good way. The barrel comes through initially, providing some oak and vanilla flavors. These notes continue all the way to the fruity-yet-alcoholic finish. I have to say, the alcohol isn't hidden particularly well. On the other hand, the booze has defined flavors of rum, raisins, and marzipan. After a while, the flavors become quite vinous (at times, almost tomato-y, but not quite). There is some complexity to be found: after many sips, I'm picking up notes of brown sugar and graham cracker. All in all, it's a pleasant quad with a nicely subtle barrel presence, but it isn't top tier, either.

M: The booze is almost startling on first sip - not quite to '13 Parabola levels, but definitely there. It calms down slightly after a while, but only slightly. Like most quads/BSDAs, it's well carbonated and almost airy on the tongue. Even better, the barrel aging hasn't made it too thin-bodied or clean finishing - and yet, it's still fairly drinkable at the end of the day.

O: This is pretty good. Like many 'Murican quads, it lacks that special something to rise it up to Belgian standards - and not even barrel aging can change that. I definitely think it's worth a try, though. I mean, it's pretty well priced as far as a barrel-aged beer goes, just don't expect brilliance.

Pours a murky amber brown with a ring of sandy colored foam that retains well but leaves little lacing.

Pretty boozy nose with noteworthy or bourbon, vanilla, oak and belgian yeast.

Big time bourbon taste with loads of vanilla and notes of oak, spice and caramel sweetness. You will be hard pressed to know this is a quad, but the flavor is great and not overly hot although I think a little age will help.

Very dry with low carbonation, but a smooth full bodied beer.

The huge flavor makes me a fan, as does the $8 price tag for a 750. Such a flavorful and well priced beer, I will be getting more for sure.

A slightly cloudy dark amber color with a fair off-white head and lacing. The aroma brings on whiskey and nut, berry and oak. Seems potent. The first mouthful is fizzy and full of the same flavors I detected in the aroma. As advertized this suggests oak barrels and Jack Daniels. Still, not quite what I expected. Highly carbonated and lots of warming alcohol, viscous and challenging to push through quickly, not a session brew for me. These flavors aren't my wheelhouse, somewhat clove in the Belgian tradition, conducive to food to help cut the sharp acidic attack of this aggressive ale. There is a nice vanilla caramel hint that comes out as it warms. A quality brew but not suited to the average consumer. Definitely worth a try to anyone that enjoys a strong ale, and possibly a big winner for some.

500th review here, thought this would be somewhat appropriate. This bottle is the 2008 vintage. Pours a very hazy, bright orange color with an initially fat tan head that fades ridiculously fast to near nothingness. Lacing is minimal. Not much of a looker here as it is very light colored for a quad and head retention is very poor.

Ahh, the smell makes up for the poor visual aspect...it is phenomenal! Vanilla, oak, alcohol, cotton candy, almonds, brown sugar and an elusive fruitiness that I cant put my finger on...perhaps some pears and red grapes? Nonetheless, this is an outstanding nose.

Barrel aging is very evident upon tasting, as is the alcohol. It is rummy and even a bit like whiskey. Could cellar for a while longer, for sure. Light bodied for a quad and drier than most, but it still retains some sweetness typical of the style. There is a nice bready, yeasty characteristic, but not quite enough. To me, it almost seems like a tripel and a half, as it needs a bit more body-adding malts and the alcohol is a bit rough...but that is being a bit picky, I am very glad I brought this out for my 500th. Great beer and I am sad that Weyerbacher has discontinued the brew.

Thanks to @Ozzylizard for this PA gem. I received this in a glorious box of beer greatness in the NBS BIF #3
Pours a deep mahogany with hints of amber. An active and assertive foam leaps upward with a tan head that slowly recedes. Smells of bourbon, mainly bourbon, with dark fruit notes, hints of more subtle malts. Taste is even more bourbon. Bourbon really does take the driver's seat in this. As I search past the booze, I find date, raisin, fig, and slightly burnt molassess. Also, there's an herbal yeasty Belgian thang to give it some complexity. But it is a bit too bourbon forward. It does dominate the other flavors trying to com through. Mouthfeel is medium, yet warm from the booze. Overall, it's pretty good, but I'm wondering how this would be with a year or more on it. Would the booze be a more democratic dance partner? Well, I already popped the cork, so I may never know.
