Beer Review

Three Philosophers

Brewed by:
Brewery Ommegang
New York, United States

Style | ABV
Quadrupel (Quad) |  9.80% ABV!beer_three





A sweet, strong ale with notes of cherry, caramel, and chocolates. Producing a thick tan head after pouring, this beer starts off with all the classic strong ale characteristics. However, as the head recedes, and the beer warm to room temperature, it takes on a very noticeable wine-like quality.


Brian: Thumbs Up.

Josh: Thumbs Up.
