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.

jazz88 (2556) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 16, 2007
Tap @ Toronado 1/15/07. A hazed amber color with a whiteh ead. Apricot, honey, spice, citrus and caramel aroma. Sweet and soft with a light caramel body, strong alcohol (warming) but well hidden. Sweet and enjoyable to the finish, but you have to watch out because this one sneeks up on you.

jrob21 (2580) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Clear copper color with big white head. There is a sweetness and unfortunately a predominating aroma of alcohol. Some yeast and malt as well. Alcohol is the predominant taste and is what you are left with after swallowing. Caramel and sugary sweetness are there too.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2007
750ml bottle. Deep golden orange color, tight bubbles in the head, soft on the palate. Yeast, honey, black pepper, and maybe coriander present. Alcohol more apparent as it warms.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 13, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2007 Pours a dingy copper color w/ a full, semi creamy froth that slowly recedes to a perfect dense caonpy and lacing that sticks to the walls. Beautiful! Aromas of heavily malted rock candy w/ a slight tartness. Very Belgian. Full nectar w/ mellow residual effers that create a soft fiberous cotton like texture. This is a big brew. The sweetness componant is high and so is the residual alcohol flavor. Very warming w/ flavors of malted rock candy, banana spice, bubble gum, glazed caramel, cherry cough drop. A generous brew w/ very strong flavors. As it warms flavors of tropical/buttery Chardonnay appear. Finish leaves a harsh feeling in my throat and is bittered w/ peach pit. Overall: it’s strong, sweet, and alcoholic. Let it age some, say 20 years or so. Very complex. This is another example of how ales are coming very close to wine in flavor profiles.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - JAN 6, 2007
Bottle. Copper color wityh a nice off-white head. Malty aroma with fruity (plum, apple) notes and some yeast. Caramel malt flavor with some yeast, spice, fruit (apple, raisin), and alcohol. Alcohol very present. Medium-full mouthfeel. Finishes drier than I’d expect. :ingering rich malt, alcohol, and spice.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 4, 2007
In the 330 mL bottle from Beetopia. Outstanding. Dark amber with a large off-white head. Aroma of strong caramel apples. Flavors are huge of malty raisin pudding and cotton candy. Thick, thick palate and dense mouthfeel. Big alcohol at first burns your insides, but as you acclimate, you need even more. Great beer.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2006
Nice mellow sweet malt aroma. Belgian estery yeastiness and some bubblegum. Alcohol vapors, orange peel and a bit of coriander. Medium dark amber clear with creamy off-white lacing head. Medium watery body with smooth yet effervescent carbonation. Starts very sweet with creamy maltiness, honey, orange peels, coriander. Estery bubblegum with big vapos and alcohol warming. Almost cloying, however. Very little bitterness. Leaves you with a sweet honey-grain after. A bit too sweet for my tastes.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 27, 2006
Dark coppery colored, cloudy appearance with big white head. Strongly spicy and chocolaty aroma with burned-syrupy touch, multidimensional aroma indeed. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is also rich with sweet, nutty and chocolaty tones, spices last in aftertaste with sweetness.

oh6gdx (20393) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2006
Bottled. Brown hazy colour with big creamy beige head. Aroma is caramel, spices, slight alcohol and nuts. Flavour is caramel, toffee, spices, nuts, burnt sugar and some fruits. Also plum is noteable! Totally cool brew. Hides the alcohol totally in flavour, just burns a bit in the stomach. Excellent winterwarmer!
