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.

chimaybier (50) - Redding, California, USA - JUL 31, 2008
This is a great "quad." It has the distinctive "Ommegang" yeast smell; Brewery Moortgat has done a great job with this one. Spced caramel aroma with the Cherry note coming in. Reminds me of a chocolate ice cream with the marachino cherries aroma. Nutty maltiness with the slight Kriek tartness in the finish. Enjoyed in the corked 750ML bottle. A vortre’ sante!

shawnmurphy (186) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - APR 22, 2017
Large caged and corked bottled pours slightly cloudy amber-ruby with tan head and lacing. Aroma: dark brown bread, raisins, prune juice, cherry juice. Flavor: caramelized brown sugar, figs, dates, prunes, black pepper, sour cherry, cloves, cinnamon, plums, chocolate, nuts. Mouthfeel: medium- to full-bodied, rich, soft on tongue, yet a bit too dry from the spices. Warm alcohol finish. A sipper, for sure.

Korcz (2916) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 14, 2017
Solidny quadrupel (choć daleko mu do klasy chociażby Struise) z dość niskim ciałem, idący w karmel i ciemne owoce, z delikatnie wiśniowo kwaskowatym finiszem. Przyjemne piwo.

ciocanelu (2048) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 14, 2017
Dark amber color with beige head. Aroma is quite boozy with sugar coated raisins. Taste starts sweet and fruity with raisins and dried berries. Finish has some cardboard and rag notes but not too intense. Medium body and carbonation. Overall its a decent beer but it has its flaws.

kapusil (1349) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 13, 2017
0.355l bottle. Slightly hazy very dark orange body with a beige head. Aroma of dark sugar syrup, orange zest, nutmeg, toast, cherries and a hint of booze. Taste of chocolate, dark sugar, orange peel, plums, toast, brandy and floral hops. The alcohol is quite obvious, but doesnt ruin the sensation. Very nice beer.

Butelka w Chmielarni na Marszałkowskiej. Aromat suszonych owocw, melasy. Smak słodki, sporo tutaj karmelu, toffee, suszonych owocw. Trochę brakuje ciała.

Swaroga (2207) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 2, 2017
Very intensive aroma of lots of fresh, canned and dried fruits. Mostly canned pear, dried apple, raisins, muscat grapes. Lots of toffee, bottom of a tart. The alcohol isnt well hidden but still well balanced in. Taste is sweet, almost cloying. Long and warming finish.
