Served in a Three Philosophers Glass at the Publick House in Brookline, MA.
Dark amber color with cloudy texture. Beautiful head with effervescent lacing.
The smell is sweet and malty with warming alcohol phenols stinging the nose.
The taste is smooth. Fruity sweetness (Cherries) lends itself well to the warming alcohol in the aftertaste. This is a sipping brew, as the petite Three Philosophers glassware hints to. There are also some spicy herbal overtones to the taste, that become more apparent as you drink.
Very complex brew, but was enjoyable to drink. I was the DD when I drank this. It was my only drink, and it lasted me over an hour, and I still got a slight buzz. O so delicious on a cold December night.
Serving type: on-tap

5/5 rDev +20.8%

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!
