COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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, its 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.

beer-yum (1472) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 15, 2016
Alluring plumb pudding aroma in a copper brown pour. Nicely balanced flavour profile with the rich malty body complimented by hops and cherries. A different but familiar brew that creatively combines the old and the new.

gallaghermurph (49) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 12, 2016
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 thats just my expectations. Still an excellent excellent beer.

kraddel (6853) - 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 Like this, it is probably a out of date bottle ( couldnt find a date on it ) so its to be re-rated when had fresh.
