Paid $18.99 for the three-pack gift set...

The beer pours a cloudy brown base, moderate sized head, very good head retention, minimum lacing on the glass. Aroma: oh my malt, sweet caramel malts, fresh fresh fresh, smells like some candy right out of the oven, elegant!

The taste hits the spot, light in the mouth, moderate carbonation, starts off a little smokey, sweet and fresh malts through delivery, smooth finish, excellent aftertaste, no sign of alcohol as other quads usually fault here; very nice! Excellent in the mouth for a beer that acts like a wine and at 9.8% the bomber is an ideal sized session brew!

Final Thought: Best Quad to date, it contains no faults except a little less flavor that one would expect. Classic!

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.
