Review: Ommegang Three Philosophers

An Abt/Quadrupel brewed by
Brewery Ommegang (Moortgat)

Cooperstown, New York USA

ABV: 9.8%

Glassware: Snifter

Poured from a 750ml bottle poured into a snifter. The aroma was of malts at first but as it warmed the bouquet grew into something more carmel dominated. I then started to pick up cherry, toffee, wood, light vanilla and a light spice – very nice. The head was creamy white and it had some very nice lacing as I went down the glass. I liked it as it warmed and would drink almost round room temperature. The palate showed a balanced and sweetness with a nice mix of dry and bitter hops. I could pick up on the alcohol pretty easy though. It may be better aged a bit.
