My god, simply my god. On to the review...
Poured a kind of deep red, almost wine like in it's appearance, except for the big gorgeous foamy head that adorned the top of my chalice.
Smelled of dark malts and cherries.
Three philosophers is a beer to ponder. Deep, complex, round and wonderful. Starts with initially sweet dark chocolate, cofee, cloves, and orange. The coffee and chocolate quickly turn to a more roasted bitter flavor. Shortly after the sweet and swourness of the cherries comes in. Spicy sour and sweet, the cherries round out the beer as at passes down your gullet. It leaves a warming as it goes down, and the aftertaste is of french roast coffee, slightly bitter. Simply wonderful.
A beer that feels round, and full in the mouth. Carbonation is just right, keeping it from being too chewy.
So flavorful I'm not sure how much of this my taste buds could take. It hides the alchohol amazingly well though.
Just amazing beer, if you can find it pick it up.
