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.

MullMan (1099) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 10, 2007

vyvvy (4135) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 7, 2007
Pours copper / orange with a fizzy off-white head. The aroma has toasted malt, dark fruits, earthy yeast, some alcohol warmth, toffee and cleaner - that last aspect takes down points from an otherwise fine aroma. Medium / full body with a minor amount of semi-sharp carbontion. The taste starts with nectar fruits, bubblegum like sweetness and alcohol warmth. The finish doesn’t add much more than head. This is not a bad beer, but it seems quite one dimensional for the style ~ so it goes, it wasn’t that expensive for a Belgium 750.

AvantAle (50) - Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2007
Bottle... I think. Golden, golden, golden. Bright. Light head with an interresting pattern. Dotty. Has a very grassy smell. Alfalfa, malt, maple syrup, sugar cane, almond, and pine needles. The flavor isn’t as detailed with notes of pine and honey, but it is well balanced, and covers alcohol well. Finishes smoothe and creamy.

Beltramelli (471) - Campinas, BRAZIL - FEB 26, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2007 Golden muddy coloration. Notes of coffee, nuts and chocolate. A certain bitter taste in the tongue leaves. Excellent carbonation. Perfect cream.

jalichio999 (502) - BRAZIL - FEB 25, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2007 Bottle. Reddish coloration, with a very nice beige cream, dense and persistent. Floral, citric, with notes of caramel malt, vanilla and chocolate. Perceivable alcohol. Average/high carbonation. Full-bodied, but it is not so complex.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2007
(Bottkle 33 cl) Hazy, dark amber with a dense and creamy, off-white head. Rich aroma of sherry and wood. Very heavy body with accents of sweet, roasted malts and caramel and then again this woodiness, desert wine and noble rot. A surprisingly solid bitterness. Good stuff. 050207

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - FEB 8, 2007
12oz Bottle. Aoma was yeasty biscuts, malt, and alcohol. Copper/amber body with off white head. Had a strong bitter alcohol start to the flavor. Malt blended in to take away some of the bitter and sour fruity flavor was appearent. Alcohol presence though out this beer, little harsh on palate and leaves you with a sour lemon aftertaste.

takecareofmac (2) - tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 6, 2007 does not count
Deep Golden, nearly brown color, with a potent aroma that brings attention to the consumer. An intense first drink that can be felt from head to toe followed by a complementary smooth finish that makes the Samaranth a covetted brew.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2007
750ml bottle pours clear amber with a nice short white frothy head that laces the sides of the trappist glass that I served it in. Aromas of tropical fruits, mango, bannana, and a little pear. Flavor is of yeast, bannana, pear, a little apple, maybe some mango too. A little malt behind it with some caramel and bready notes. A good dose of spice on the finish too. Quite complex and delightful. Lots of carbonation gives this a good soft mouthfeel with a little alcohol tickle at the finish but the 11.5 was covered quite well in my opinon.. I think this is a pretty nice beer.
