look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

2009 bottling

A: Dark brown in color. About 1/2 opaque. Forms a moderate sized head that falls to a thick tan ring around the edge. Minimal lacing.

S: Aroma is sweet and fruity, with notes of dark stone fruit, cherry, apple skin, and brown sugar.

T: Taste is moderately sweet. Caramel malts, brown sugar, lighter molasses notes. Moderate fruity quality, mostly cherry, but there are notes of raisin, prune, and tamarind in the mix as well. Finish is fairly quick, a little watery even, leaving a faint raisiny port wash in the mouth.

M: On the heavier side of medium. Actually expected this one to have a bit more body to it. Lower carbonation. Mild bitterness.

O: Yeah, a very nice beer. Can't saw Quads are my favorite style, but this one is quite nice. A great beer to pair with (the right) food.

5/5  rDev +20.8%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Carmine/bole body with a pearl/eggshell head.

Aroma: Persimmons, plums, blackcurrants, cherries, grapes, and a slight orange 'musk' with notes of spicy, herbal yeast.

Taste: All of the fruits in the aroma, but with a 'burnt' characteristic - all with the classic alcohol presence of a Quad.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, bold, flavorful; classic Quadrupel.

Overall: My first from Brewery Ommegang, and it did not disappoint whatsoever. I highly recommend 'Three Philosophers' for those who are already fans of Quads and for those who would like to get into Quads. Cheers!
