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.

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.

Its 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!

Pas mal ma foi. Nez trs port sur le caramel et la levure. Fond fruits rouges. En bouche, on est sur la mme chose, les 2% de quadruple la cerise napportent pas grand chose pour ne pas dire rien. Aprs on reste sur une quadruple avec un certain caractre, de la rondeur, du corps. Trs bonne mais finalement assez commune. On trouve une petite note supplmentaire qui diffrencie mais nest vraiment pas extraordinaire.

2014 bottle in LA. Pours very dark brown with off-white head. Very rich aroma, malt and dark fruit esters. Flavour has strong fruity esters - raisin, plum. A hint of cherry and a little tartness. Medium-high carbonation and moderately bitter and dry finish. Excellent quad!

Cherries, molasses, bread, figs, caramel in the nose. Dark brown with thick but light head. Taste same as nose, with vinous character. A little bit tea as well as sourness at the end.

Aroma: sweet cherry pie aroma with a backdrop of vanilla. Maple syrup and dark car as is also prevalent and secondary for me. Hop aroma not really apparent. Appearance: very dark copper and hazy. Cream colored head which surprisingly dissipates rather quickly into a thin sliver. Taste: much less cherry and much more sweetness, reminds me a little of oven roasted sweet potatoes drizzled with some maple syrup. Moderately sweet, but I think its mostly due to the very low bitterness. There is almost no bitterness at all present. Palate: medium bodied on the body and pretty clean finish considering the alcohol level. Pleasantly creamy texture but not the carbonation I was expecting. Very long sensational finish. Like many beers, Id rather drink this warmed up to about 50 degrees, but in a weather-appropriate situation. The one area I was disappointed in was the appearance, as the carbonation wasnt what I expected. The aromas and finish, however were unbelievable. A very memorable beer.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2016 Serving: from bottle purchased at The Beer Junction. Aroma: light citrus, soap, cherry and leather. Appearance: average-sized, frothy, off-white, initial head with fair lacing and mostly diminishing longevity. Hazy, dark-orange body. Taste: lightly sour initial flavor and heavily sweet finish with average duration. Palate: light-medium body, syrupy texture and fizzy carbonation. Overall: interesting flavor and aroma.

Pours hazy copper with a decent tan head. Nose has a pinch of nutmeg on top of decent brown sugar, alcohol, and Belgian yeast. flavor is a similar sweetness with a pinch of spice. alcohol is well hidden. relatively short and dry finish. Good beer.

IslandHaole (1248) - Misawa, JAPAN - JAN 1, 2016
Happy New Year! My first beer of 2016! Caramel, wildflowers, Ice Tea, cola and light alcohol in the nose. Hazy caramel colored with a short lived beige head that dissipates to a ring around the edge of the glass. Sweet, slick with an oily feel, lots of treacle, bubblegum with light spice. A tad over carbonated for my liking, but still quite good.
