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.

Ughsmash (7361) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 22, 2007
11.2oz bottle. Poured clear, fiery medium orange with a short, but well-retained cap of beige head. Aroma picked up a nice array of lighter (apricots and oranges) and darker (plums and figs) fruits with some aged caramel and herbal hoppage.. all very well enhanced by a big alcohol presence. The flavor was slick with alcohol interfering with the predominantly sweet base.. caramel, light and dark fruits, and toffee with moderate herbal and prickly grassy bitterness.. left a tacky, sweet, and very warm finish.. good, but a bit too heavy on the booze factor. Heavily-bodied with some sharper alcohol on the back-end. Good stuff.

jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2007
Labeled 11.5 abv, Production 17JE (if anyone knows what that means please let me know). Pours hazy dark orange with a orange-hued tan head. Strong fruity aroma, with some notes of mango, apricot, and orange, as well as some sweet caramel, honey, and toffee. Flavor is mildly sweet and less fruity than expected. Big on the syrupy malts like caramel and toffee, a bit of a woody undertone, just a bit of hops towards the finish, and just a tinge of alcohol but unoffensive. Palate is full and syrupy/creamy with a woody, fruity caramel finish.

33cl bottle. Good beer and I was surprised that the ABV was not overpowering in the flavor and aroma.

Pours a rich, coppery-amber with minimal clarity and plenty of effervescence; the head is fizzy at first but grows and becomes creamy, full, and off-white with excellent longevity and tight lacing. Nose is very fruity and sweet; notes of overripe peach, muscat grapes, cherries, lots of candi sugar, very rich caramels, graham cracker, and yeast. Flavor is sweet with candi sugar, caramized cherries, apricot, raisin, cinnamon, faint chocolate, and an earthy bitterness there almost keeping from being too sweet. Palate is medium to full, syrupy, very chewy, and lively. Finishes long with some earthy bitterness, candi sugar, and caramelized cherry. This one was ridiculously sweet but the complexities and numerous fruit flavors kept my intrigue. So complex, so rich, and wonderfully fruity. I was very impressed with this quad-esque Belgian and don’t realize why this one has gotten such bad scores.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2007
From a growler filled at Bierkraft this strong ale pours hazy light brown witha medium head. The aroma is sweet and spicey. You get a palate flavor of sweet amltinesswith notes of raison and overripe peach. The finish is full but you can taste the high abv.

Indra (2707) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 8, 2007
330ml bottle. Malty and fruity aroma, sweet and mildly spicy with touches of caramel and spun sugar alongside some faint peach and white grape notes. Medium-dark sunset red color, clear, with a lasting, foamy, sticky head and lacing. Flavor profile is predominantly sweet and richly sugary, this present throughout from beginning to end, and accompanied by lighter quantities of peppery spice, honeyed pear, apricot, orange and golden raisin, and with a faintly medicinal alcohol presence at the finish. Mouthfeel is creamy, smoothly effervescent and warming, body is massively full. More subtle in some aspects, more sledgehammer in others, but elicits a certain degree of intrigue all the same.
