Had on tap at Max's Taphouse in Baltimore, MD
A- Mahogany brown red with a 1 finger tan head. Cloudy with great lacing.
S- Dark fruit, currents, raisins, cherries, nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar.... Needless to say this one is very complex.
T- Smooth malty taste with sugars, nice spice on the back end with a dark fruit bitterness, cloves, and maybe even a touch of banana.
M- Starts smooth and works to a creamy texture with the clove spice tingling the tongue on the finish.
)- Fantastic beer, easy drinking, the complexity works. It's like Asian cooking (a ton of different flavors working together in harmony to form one great flavor.)
Serving type: on-tap

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.
Serving type: bottle
