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, 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.

Flaska blind. Brunröd kulör. Sötknäckig doft med mosade äpplen och belgojäst. I smak känns torkad frukt, lite barr, knäck och säd. Söt med avslutande torr och lätt besk munkänsla. Värmande alkoholinslag

Bomber into chalice. Clear dark brown/copper with a slight tan head. Black licorice, Belgian yeast, a bit of chocolate and dark fruit notes. Loads of dried fruit flavor, sticky on the palate and creates quite a boozy warmth. Heavy. Wish I had a season’s supply of it.

Bomber to a snifter. Clear copper brown with one finger tan head. Has the look feel aroma and flavor of a true Trappist Quad... Layers of complex flavor hide the ABV... A delicious beer...

This is an American Quad that appears and tastes as if monks had been producing it for 300 years. The bottle I drank from had been aged for one year, though I have also had the 2015, age rounds the edges and softens this strong ale. Notes of black licorice, orange peel, belgian yeast and dark, dark chocolate are pronounced throughout. with a sweet carmel malt bringing up the rear. A great Quad that flashed me back to my youth in Europe.

I poured it from the bottle into a Stella Artois glass. The aroma is cherries and a warming alcohol. The taste was cherries, alcohol, and Belgian yeast. The palate was very nice. There was a nice smoothness, which gives way to a nice carbonation. As it warms, the smoothness is enhanced. This was good.

12/17/2009 3:45:53 AM Bottle at The Half Pint, NYC. Nice dark red body with slight tan head. Nose of lots of fruits, malts, caramel. Taste also of caramel, bitter and fruits. Sweet, but not too much. But quite fruity (or bitter) to me. Enjoyable all the same.

브루어리 오메강 - 쓰리 필라소퍼스 9.7% ABV 오메강의 콰드루펠. 뉴욕주에 브루어리가 있지만 실제로 듀벨 소속의 벨기에 양조장으로 출발했다. 들큰하게 치솟는 알콜기에 설탕에 절인 과일같은 테일의 에일 꽤나 고급스럽고 고전적인 레이블 등으로 인해 맥주맛 좋다고 알려진 브루어리로, 크래프트 맥주를 고급 문화의 일부로 소비하는 계층에게 특히 사랑받는다. 레이트 비어 99점이지만 솔직히 그 정도 맛은 아니다. https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

12 oz bottle from 2012. Shared with ebone1988. The pour is a dark ruby brown with a cap of light tan head and no lace. The aroma is surprisingly full of cherry. There is a little Belgian malt and a lot of cherry. I love how they mixed the Kriek here. The flavor is really, really malty. There is no Kriek present, the cherry all left. It's got a Belgian malt that forces it's way in with clove and a light yeastiness. The mouth feel is thinner than it looks with a soft carbonation and a lingeringly malty and Belgian finish. It started out so well, only to drop the ball. Damnit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
