Three Philosophers was served from a 750ml corked and caged bottle, with a neck label indicating Brewed in 2004. In a Duvel tulip, the beer was a very dark brownish ruby red color, and was topped by a thick and fine light brown head. The nose was rich and enveloping, letting loose a barage of cherry-caramel-plantain maltiness with amazing underlying subtleties: tingly tartness, musty chocolate, and luscious esters. The taste presented a dark and bitter cherry-laced buttery maltiness with a warming alcoholic kick and accents of musty banana and freshly turned earth. This finished with a dark cherry skin-chocolate bitterness with lingering earthy cherry notes. The flavors of this beer reached their highest complexity and intensity near room temperature. The body was appropriately full for the flavors and character of the beer. The evident alcohol decreased the drinkability considerably, but then again this was meant as a sipper I would guess. Three Philosophers was a robust and tasty tummy warmer with very nice assortment of flavors. A succesful blend of the dark Belgian-style ale with a kriek.

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.
