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.

Marsiblursi (3070) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2007
(Bottle) Pours copper-ish amber. Sweet and fruity aroma with complex esters and some candied tones in the background. Ripe apples, pears, grapes, raisins and more exotic notes of pineapple, mango and citrus peel are also present. Subtle spices, mostly anise and a good deal of peppery and polish like alcohol. Some cookies, nuts and almond-ish malt along some honey tones. Malt, fruit and yeast in the flavour with notes of alcohol and anise seeds. Honey and nuts in the flavour as well. Light to medium sweet. Soft and round mouthfeel but with an unpleasant alcohol bitter finish. Alcohol and anise lingers. Medium to full bodied. This beer is quite interesting but suffering from a notable lack of depth flavour wise.

badlizard (5534) - Berkeley, California, USA - OCT 21, 2007
On tap at Stone. Opaque caramel color with a creamy white head. Aroma of caramel and fruit and yeast. Creamy satin palate. Taste of caramel covered fruit and a bitter finish.

KimJohansen (10406) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2007
Hazy amber with large head. The sweet and malty aroma has overripe fruits and toffee. Flavor is sweet and malty and quite hoppy for a Quadrupel. Warming alcohol in the end with bitter finish.

ABUSEDGOAT (2424) - California, USA - OCT 17, 2007
11%: Slightly hazy ruby, moderate rocky head, good lacing and retention. Aroma is alcoholic with darker fruits like raisins and cherries. Sugar and yeast play a factor as well. Somewhat hot, somewhat sweet, medium body. A hint of metal. Raisins and alcohol dominate though. Not a great example.

SHIG (4210) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - OCT 16, 2007
Bottle: Poured a copperishred amber with a creamy off white color head. The aroma is sweet fruit hints of plums. Taste blasts out of the glass as at first it stings the tongue, then is subsides to leave a sugary caramel malt, which eventually finishes dry tingly.

thewolf (11728) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2007
Bottle. [thank you, Skortila!]
Pours a plummy dark orange with a great and very creamy small off white head. Lots of lacing. Aroma has plums, raisins and some exotic fruits. Quite oily and full mouthfeel. Flavour is vinious, quite bitter (surprise!), a sweet caramel edge to it as well. Not that terribly complicated and a bit too vinious, but very nice.

truebluehes (189) - Tipton, Iowa, USA - OCT 11, 2007
Bottle. Very hazy orange/brown brew, nice beige head. Aroma is very plummy and raisony with hints of mango. Flavor is very sweet, but not overwhelmed by the aroma. Flavor is very smooth and a nice tingle on the aftertaste.

oberabcbbsok (687) - Hoboken, BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2007
Small botle. Not drunk on draft yet. A complex and good tasting beer with some bitterness and also some sweet touches. I love it

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Body. Dark tawny brown body with a very thin ring of bubbles. Nose-bready, raw sugar, molasses, unsweet fruit juice. Taste-sweet apple, brown sugar, dough, very hot, alcohol is way up front, prickly CO2, raw and unrefined almost turpentine like, light prune, dirty, cheap watered down whisky, almost woody. The sweetness is kept well in check. The “rawness” is distracting.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2007
750ml bottle. Golden amber colour with a massive fluffy head. Some peppery notes on the nose. Spicy, yeasty notes come through much more strongly, and very agreeably, in the aroma. Fairly tart, crisp mouthfeel that allows this do drink more easily than an 11% beer has any right to. A tasty and pleasant beer, if not as much of a beast as I expected.
