While good, I was indisputably disappointed by this beer because of how substantial the hype is. Dark, rich, and smooth with a slight alcohol burn and beautiful presentation, this beer is unmistakably a fine piece of craftsmanship. However, to my taste it was not complex enough to be world class in this style.

I also should note that my rating reflects my preference for dark, malty beers with minimal hop character. Three philosophers finished too hoppy for me to buy it again.
