I haven't had a beer in awhile, so today I decided to uncork a bottle of Blasphemy by Weyerbacher Brewing Company. To make Blasphemy, the brewers at Weyerbacher take their Quad, a Belgian style quadruple, and age it in bourbon barrels. In the bottle, it is unfiltered, bottle conditioned, and 11.8% ABV.

Blasphemy pour a reddish brown color with a finger width head that dissipates quickly. The nose is full of vanilla from the bourbon barrels. Taking a sip, more vanilla, caramel, and alcohol. Very smooth going down. After letting warm a bit, I'm getting a cherry syrupy taste, it is quite pleasant. This is a great beer to sit and relax with. If I had a good cellar space, I would love to see what some age could do to this beer.
