Three Philosophers is a unique blend of a Belgian-style dark ale and Liefmans Kriek, an authentic cherry ale from Belgium. Cherry chestnut in color, it’s opaque but not cloudy with full carbonation topped by a smooth, tan head. Flavors and aromas of roasted malt, molasses and brown sugar, dark fruits, brandied raisins and chocolate, Three Philosophers has notable sweetness with low hop bitterness. The mid-palate shows a soft malt center which gives way to a dry, warm, wine-like finish.

Pours a thick maple chestnut with a big thick tanned head that continues to stand. Aroma is brandied cherries, smoke, teriyaki and spice. Malty overtones. Flavor is immediately dark. Sweetened coffee, brandied cherries, spice cake, little bit of cloves and cinnamon. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky with tiny soft bubbles. Finish lingers and is brown bread. Obviously a very good and very complex one - somehow leaves me wanting a little bit more but perhaps that’s just my expectations. Still an excellent excellent beer.

kraddel (6362) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - MAR 9, 2016
Bottle. Pours unclear dark amberbrown , good white head. Smell is bit malty, some caramel and earth. Some cognac notes almost, even though its not barrel aged. Taste is very oxidized, sweet , some not well aged fruity notes. Given the fact it tastes. Like this, it is probably a out of date bottle ( couldnt find a date on it ) so it’s to be re-rated when had fresh.

Bouteille. Nez malté de caramel doux, de toffee et de sucre bonbon, fruité (léger de raisins, de prunes, de cerises avec des notes de pommes et d’agrumes), léger d’alcool doux et d’épices (coriandre). Plutôt ronde en bouche et moyennement pétillante avec une texture très légèrement liquoreuse. Goût de levures fruitées sucrées (léger de raisins, de prunes et de cerises, notes de pommes) et légèrement épicé (léger de coriandre, notes de clou de girofle) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un goût malté de caramel doux et léger de toffee (avec des notes de noisettes rôties), léger de sucre bonbon puis finalement, un goût légèrement amer d’alcool doux (un peu vineux) avec des notes herbeuses ainsi qu’un très léger goût de houblon floral et citrique viennent se rajouter. Arrière-goût moyen-long, légèrement amer d’alcool doux (et de houblon et de rôti) avec des notes aigres et légèrement vineuses de fruits (cerises, raisins, notes d’agrumes). [notes 2005]

Pours deep copper with tan, clingy head. Aromas of cherry, molasses, caramel, malt and spice. Taste is cherry, yeast, caramel, faintly boozy. Overall it's solid, but unremarkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a brown copper color with a huge tan head. Nose of Caramel malts, plums and dark cherrys, some molasse and a bit of spices. Also some brown sugar and a bit of alcool notes. Medium sweetness on the taste. Medium to full body with small to medium carbonation. Finish is medium alcool. Pretty easy to drink for a 10% beer and pretty solid all around

Bottle shared with Chump during Super Bowl. Sweet aroma balanced with malt, hop, booze. Notes of oak, caramel, molasses, dark fruits. Eclectic. Very smooth. God-like. Delicious too. Alcohol disguised well.

It’s about time I rated this. 12oz bottle, no date. Enjoyed 4 degrees warmer than recommended... 54 degrees. Forgive me. Pours dark brown with a bit of dark red and a light beige head. Nice aroma of dark malts, dark cherry and just a hint of clove. Clove is stronger on the palate, with caramel, banana, and a hint of dark cherry in the finish. Goes down super easy!

Bawelt (575) - Lyon, FRANCE - FEB 15, 2016
Pas mal ma foi. Nez très porté sur le caramel et la levure. Fond fruits rouges. En bouche, on est sur la même chose, les 2% de quadruple à la cerise n’apportent pas grand chose pour ne pas dire rien. Après on reste sur une quadruple avec un certain caractère, de la rondeur, du corps. Très bonne mais finalement assez commune. On trouve une petite note supplémentaire qui différencie mais n’est vraiment pas extraordinaire.
