My father recieved a bottle of this for Christmas from one of his subordinates. Fellow BAs take note; buying your boss beer gets you mucho brownie points! Anyway, he was curious and offered to split it with me. We don't have any chalices like the bottle suggests, so we used standard Imperial Pint glasses.
It was interesting to pop a bottle of beer like you would a bottle of sparkling wine. We then each poured a pint for each other. The color is a dark reddish black color, made cloudy by some of the yeast that hadn't settled after the uncorking. Moderate initial head which then reduces to a thin, persistant lacing of the top. It had a rich feel to it, with definite hints of the fruits used, cherry being the dominate. I could definately see this going well after a meal with dessert, espically someting with chocolate. Slight malty aftertaste, but that could be due to the yeast. It did nothing to detract from the overall experience.
It would be a definate repeat, however, the cost would preclude regular buying ($8 a bottle is steep for a poor, starving college student). The good news is now I have a new addtion to my Christmas list nex year.

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.
