Ommegang Three Philosophers has a thin, fizzy, beige, root beer-style head, a brilliant, orange-brown appearance, lots of tight bubble streams, and a thin lacing sheen left behind. The aroma is of sweet, rich, brown bread, strong fruit aroma (such as fig or date), sugar, and caramel. Taste is of all those elements, with nougat, brandy wine, and some hop bitterness. Cherry flavor is present, but it is quite subdued. Mouthfeel is medium and prickly (from the carbonation), and Ommegang Three Philosophers finishes mostly dry, sweet, rich, and enjoyable. This is a outstanding sipper, and I highly recommend it.
