12 oz bottle poured into a goblet.
Appearance is the least tempting quality of the beer. It's a deep ruby brown with minimal head and lacing after the initial pour.
Aroma is caramel and tart cherries.
Taste is rich with chocolate, plum and tart cherry, but the cherries are light and balanced with the overall complexity of the beer.
Mouthfeel is pretty good, if a little lght...and maybe that's alright for this one because it's pretty drinkable.
I've tried it as an ice cream float and I tried it at Ommegang's Belgium Comes to Cooperstown 2007 with a ice cream laden tart. So, dessert pairings with it are necessary.
Three Philosophers is an excellent quad. I have many of these bottles, so I'm laying quite a few of them down and can't wait to see how they turn out.
