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.

Deep copper pour, huge bubbly off-white head. Yeasty/bread-like nose with some fruitiness under. Medium bodied palate with less carbonation than the huge head would suggest. Taste is a bit typical for a quad, is somewhat subdued, for a quad in my opinion – hard to taste much beyond the yeasty/fruity flavor.

Goodgrief (1885) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - SEP 3, 2007
Oct 2005 rating - Very different for a quad. Beer poured with huge head and nice lacing...a little light colored for a quad. HUGE aroma of honey/bananas. Taste was just the right amount of sweetness with definite honey lemony taste others have noticed. Nothng like the other quads I’ve had, but I liked it.

This Belgian Strong Ale pours a medium amber color from a 33cl bottle. Large sized white foamy head, long lasting lacing. Aroma is malty, sweet, some orange, some cheery and a touch floral. A medium bodied Belgian Strong Ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Dark fruits, yeast and esters. Lively carbonation. Smooth taste. Finishes with a nice malty sweetness. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - AUG 27, 2007
Bottle. Light amber/ copper color with a sizable ivory head. Sweet caramel malt aroma with some strawberry-like notes. Sweet and earthy. Somewhat chocolately. Strong fruit notes going into a dusty finish. Very astringent.

Ughsmash (7387) - 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.
