April 2012 – Three Philosopher’s Belgian Style Blend

by Mike on April 9, 2012 · 0 comments

Three Philosopher’s is what is known as a Quadruple. They are typically darker in color, deep red or brown most often and are quite strong and bold in flavor. They are sweet with little bitterness, but a pronounced alcohol taste.

Three Philosopher’s pours a dark amber color with a rich thick head.  There is a aroma of dark cherries and the flavor follows suit.  Although the alcohol content is high in this one at 9.80% ABV, but it is surprisingly well hidden.  Upfront, it will almost have the feel of a wine, but as you finish it there is no mistaking the beer flavor.  There is also a noticeable clove flavor that will hit on the back end.

This is a sipping beer.  It’s not one you are going to polish down on a hot summer day after mowing the lawn.  However, it went great with our Easter meal yesterday.
