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.

notalush (4765) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Tap at Sunset Grill - rather light red for the style, with a nice, fluffy white head - aroma has lots of lighter fruity esters, like cherry and strawberry - bright, fruity flavor, with a lot of candi sugar coming through, but it manages to keep from being cloying - a lot of tripel-ish flavor characteristics coming through, but I can forgive it for that - had this next to the Founders quad, which made this one seem all the better.

masteren (15) - Hvidovre, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2006
Strong beer with a aroma of fruit and plum. Alcoholic but sweet flavour. Longlasting after-taste. Beware of the high ABV.

Svesse (6041) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 27, 2006
(Bottle, Akkurat, Stockholm, 20 Oct) Dark amber colour with huge, firm, off-white head. Fruity nose with raisins, dried figs, notes of raspberries and blackberries. Slightly wineous with notes of molasses. Fruity, slightly roasted, taste with notes of brown sugar, caramel, raisins, figs and prunes. Sweet but well balanced, with a spicy finish. Full bodied, with creamy texture. Tasty and very warming.

1FastSTi (3333) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 22, 2006
11.2 oz bottle via John’s Grocery. The beer pours to an extremely carbonated golden/orange body with a very tall light and airy off-white head that leaves peaks like meringue. Nice lacing. The aroma is strong with sweet fruits, lots of light yeasts, white sugar, some sort of dessert, bananas. The flavor is creamy, spicy, sweet, lemons, sugar. Much better as a sum of the parts. Quite good. The palate is rich and creamy, but also slick and goes down easily. A lingering yeast flavor exists. The high alcohol content is well hidden. A very unique brew.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 25, 2006
Darkened clear orange, fizzy light tan head. Nose had very nice tones of sugar coated plums, golden raisin, pear, brown sugar, cotton candy, and booze. Dark fruit flavor throughout with good doses of candi sugar thrown about for good measure. It does come around with a nice helping of bittering hops and alcohol heat late. Medium to full bodied, fizzy carbonation, lightly sweet, bitter finish. Not the most complex I have ever had, but a very tasty treat none the less...

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2006
Bottle... Clear amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. Fruity aroma; mandarin orange and pear. The flavor is sweet with brown sugar, toffee and honey. Hot and bitter with alcohol; bitter with hops. Just short of full-bodied. Sticky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Finishes lightly sweet, then boozy and bitter. Maybe a touch grassy.

Dopplebock1538 (71) - Sanatoga, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2006
Ummm, this is more of a Barleywine. Very good barleywine, bot none the less barleywine. All i could taste was sweetness and booze. Very good, but not my cup of tea.

Tasted on tap at The Rover, Gothenburg, Sweden. Although it may be that this beer might not always travel well-- and I have tasted a mediocre keg of it-- the proper Urthel 12 is simply my favourite beer of them all. It is everything that Belgian Ale should be for me: slightly sweet, rich, full, loaded with malt flavours and complexity. It was perfect-- a Karmeliet of Karmeliets.
