look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
I already know that I'm a fan of this beer and this is the first Quad I ever had.
Appearance-Murky brown with a 3 finger french vanilla ice cream head. Small tight bubbles that slowly reduces to a thin film atop the swamp.
Smell-Sweet, but not overly sweet. Dark fruits with some sourness. Black Pepper. Whats great about the aroma is that it's not overbearing, just very inviting.
Taste-Tart cherries up front. Sweet malts along with some pepper. Towards the end you still get some cherries along with the other dark fruits and some nice spices from the yeast. The sour cherries definitely adds an extra element I really enjoy.
Mouthfeel-Creamy, light booze. Medium bodied with lower carbonation that I prefer.
Overall-I prefer this over St. Bernardus. The light tartness adds that extra ummmphhh that I like. The lower carbonation level really lets the flavors shine as well. Great beer.

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!
