COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Urthel Samaranth 12 Quadrium Ale is a malty, full-bodied special Ale, brewed in a way that only Belgian Brewers can. Huge mouthfeel and layers and levels of flavor make Urthel Samaranth the perfect beer for the end of a meal or at the finish of a special day. And when you want something different, Urthel Samaranth 12 Quadrium Ale is with its fine bitterness, definitely something different... Try it! First brewed at Van Steenberge, now brewed at Koningshoeven - La Trappe brewery.

11.2oz bottle, $4.09. God all mighty this beer sucks!. Aroma is not bad: of sweet malts and citrus hops. Looks great. Average sized white head that mostly diminished and left average lace. Alcohol content is great!. But the flavor? WTF!? Nasty, sweet berries, syrup, medicine, sweaty ass, and dead rat dominate the flavor(well, maybe not dead rat, thatís a little better. Also, please do not regard my reviews of Belgium beers since I despise them vehemently!!) Whose brewing this crap?!! I know I can hardly complain since most yanks drink Bud but WTF Belgium?!! Is this really your newest cult classic?! I actually couldnít finish this beer!! I KNOW, ME!!!!! NOT FINISHING A BEER!!! Hell mustíve froze over! Great job guys, the first beer I can consciously remember not finishing. I hope youíre proud! And if that doesnít just kill me, Iíve inadvertently chosen this beer as my 69th rating!! DAMN YOU!!!! Youíre so not worthy!!

Pours amber in color with little head. Very strong alcohol taste along with a sweet malty flavor. Aroma consists of raisins, clove, caramel and very strong alcohol. A very strong beer and not for the light hearted.

mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 17, 2007
Tap served in proper De Konongshoeven glass (grass on drawn on the glass?). Small, off-white, fizzy head (pattern of belgian?) Murky light brown body. Aromas of yeast, bubble gum, alcohol, maltiness, and some cloves. Flavor is sweet all the way. Solid brew but something in the finish that is a little off.

NachlamSie (2903) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2007
Draught in an Urthel snifter at the Brick Store. Pours a hazy bright orange with a massive white head. Aroma is wild and yeasty with hints of pineapple, grass, cloves, nutmeg. Carbonation is medium. The description on the menu claims this a quad, though a unique one. That is definitely stretching the imagination, I like the broader "Belgian Strong Ale" classification this site has given it. This is nice bright ale with tons of pineapple, cloves, nutmeg, some banana, doughy notes, and honey. I found the flavor to be tamer and less sour than the aroma. This is a great drink.

Mainly yeasty aroma, though not unpleasant. In the mouth again some yeast, a bit of (moderate) honey and chocolate, and above all a thick, smooth, creamy palate. Alcohol is well hidden. Full and enjoyable.

sunevdj (3353) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - APR 29, 2007
Pours a murky brown with a tanned head. Smells very bready. Quite sweet and slightly fruity. But mostly bready. Also a hint of earth. Sweet finish.

Dry fruit taste like grapes. Clear orange/golden color. Small white head. Sweet and tangy start. Finishes with light carbonation.

bottle - Pours hazy copper with a one finger head that leaves plenty of lacing. The enjoyable aroma is heavy on yeast and citrus fruit. A sweet, citrusy, lightly spiced flavor mostly covers the high abv. The finish is mildly bitter. It kind of reminded me of Piraat 10.5, perhaps because of the pronounced fruit notes, and thatís a good thing. Very good beer.

faroeviking (10285) - FAROE ISLANDS - APR 20, 2007
Bottle at Ølbaren. Urthel Samaranth Quadrium 12% alc. Brown colour. Sweet, fruity, spiced and toasty maltiness in the aroma, which also appear in the flavour though with a more profound sweetness and alcohol. Has a past date touch over it.....
