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.

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!

SpringsLicker (3127) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 18, 2006
Pours a hazy, medium orange/amber color that throws up a tall, long lasting, creamy head of off-white. Spicy vinous aroma, maybe some apple in there. Moderately sweet and fruity, with a bit of bitterness and a dry finish. The lively carbonation lightens the body up so that there is no hint as to the alcohol content on this one. Thanks to SS for this one.

This is a nice Belgian. I have been shying away from Belgians recently, but this one really proved to be a delicious beer.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 28, 2006
Draught at Old Capitol Brew Works & Public House in Iowa City, IA. Hazy golden brown color with a thick creamy off white head that laced the side of the wide mouthed Belgian glass it was served in. Attractive aroma of cotton candy, flowery hops, green apple, and pineapple. Sweet and sticky palate, smooth and full bodied. Tasted of apple, malty caramel, and flowery hops with a warm splash of alcohol at the end. It tasted less like alcohol than I would have expected at 11.5%. Delicious.

Stine (1531) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 20, 2006
On tap at Barley John’s. Aromas are of alcohol, dark fruits, and candy canes, or lollipops. Warm flavors of banana bread and apple crisp. Alcohol shouts a loud hello in the finish.

Tmoney99 (10546) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Corked bottle. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate spicy malty aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Medium balanced flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable complex beer.

Bottle. Clear deep amber, almost copper colour. Small white head. Potent sugar cane aroma with some spiciness. sweet flavours, good fruitiness, present alc, almost rummy. Fizzy and full-bodied. A barley wine that has yet to reach some more complexity.
