A: Dark red brown; cloudy. Pours with a medium head with somewhat little retention. Though a nice thin and uniform lace lines the side of the glass throughout the drinking experience.
S: Dark dried fruits. Strong aroma of fig and malt, with cherries layered behind - while a bright acidity lays atop the overall experience. There is a funk smell of cheese as well.
T: Toasty flavor and malt richness envelop the tastebuds first - then dark cherries come through soon after, followed by a more subdued fig appearance.
M: Medium to full bodied - highly carbonated, which makes it feel lighter than it would otherwise. Surprisingly stimulating on the tongue and palate. A full mouth experience.
O: Overall a very nice creation. For the ethanol content- as well as the true richness of its flavor components, this is an incredibly drinkable beer, and surprisingly somewhat refreshing as well. Not insanely filling, as many beers with similar flavor profiles can be - and also does not scream winter warming seasonal brew. This can shine on its own, but wonderfully also accompany food as well. Definitely worth a try!! I will absolutely have this again.

Sometimes with Ommegang, I don't know what to expect. White the 3 philosophers, I was thinking it'd be a bittery type of beer, but once I poured it, and saw a nice dark, caramel color, I knew it'd be different. It's sweet. Reminds me of amaretto, while my friends said it was like so co. Nice to drink of the bat, but gets heavy later on. I could see myself drinking this with a dessert, which I rarely do.
