2008 Ommegang Three Philosophers. 2008 on neck label. Stored at 60-65F. Served at 55F in a Chimay goblet. I had been waiting for a while to try this beer. It is one of my first cellared beers. It did not disappoint. The appearance is excellent with a 1-2 finger light beige cola-like head with some last and some random lace formations. The aroma is light but also presents some plum and tart stone fruit aromas. The flavor is exceptional with plum, fig/date, tobacco, and a tart character which is not exactly cerry but provides a dryness that makes this beer incredibly drinkable for its strength. I really enjoyed this beer. I will try the 2009 tomorrow night and see which I like better to decide on further aging versus enough. I have had fresh and it is pretty hot -- there is minimal to no perceptible alcohol -- mainly belly-warming. An extraordinary aged beer that I encourage others to put away. Not sure how the 12 oz capped bottles will to do over time. The corked and caged though -- extremely good.
