Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

THREE PHILOSOPHERS QUADRUPEL ALE was aged nine months at Ommegang. It went into BUFFALO TRACE BOURBON BARRELS in September 2009 and was bottled in May 2010. Only 200 bottles were created.

Enjoy all the flavor, aroma and spiciness of Three Philosophers, overlaid with notes of oak and bourbon, as well as a hint of vanilla.

Buffalo Trace Distillery is located in Frankfort, Kentucky - the very heart of bourbon country. The distillery has been operating since 1787.

I had this beer off the draft. The cherry aroma is instantaneous, hints of vanilla on the finish, great body, smooth, stout with a high ABV. I highly recommend this beer. It is an instant favorite.

I've enjoyed the finest beers offered between Honolulu and Hamburg, as well as the skunkiest. This beverage, dousing my draconian palate, was the best it's ever tasted. It was robust, but minus the burnt-tire taste of a stout. In fact, my five-star meal took second fiddle and cooled until the beverage was through. For a mere $12, it's worth every penny. Savor the flavor, ride the buzz, and see it as money well spent, for we're here for such a short time in the kaleidoscope of life.
