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.

Draught in an Urthel snifter at the Brick Store. Pours a hazy bright orange with a massive white head. Aroma is wild and yeasty with hints of pineapple, grass, cloves, nutmeg. Carbonation is medium. The description on the menu claims this a quad, though a unique one. That is definitely stretching the imagination, I like the broader "Belgian Strong Ale" classification this site has given it. This is nice bright ale with tons of pineapple, cloves, nutmeg, some banana, doughy notes, and honey. I found the flavor to be tamer and less sour than the aroma. This is a great drink.

Mainly yeasty aroma, though not unpleasant. In the mouth again some yeast, a bit of (moderate) honey and chocolate, and above all a thick, smooth, creamy palate. Alcohol is well hidden. Full and enjoyable.

Pours a murky brown with a tanned head. Smells very bready. Quite sweet and slightly fruity. But mostly bready. Also a hint of earth. Sweet finish.

bottle - Pours hazy copper with a one finger head that leaves plenty of lacing. The enjoyable aroma is heavy on yeast and citrus fruit. A sweet, citrusy, lightly spiced flavor mostly covers the high abv. The finish is mildly bitter. It kind of reminded me of Piraat 10.5, perhaps because of the pronounced fruit notes, and that’s a good thing. Very good beer.

Bottle at Ølbaren. Urthel Samaranth Quadrium 12% alc. Brown colour. Sweet, fruity, spiced and toasty maltiness in the aroma, which also appear in the flavour though with a more profound sweetness and alcohol. Has a past date touch over it.....

amber brown pour with one finger head. fruit, spices and alcohol are heavy in the aroma. sweet sugary taste which quickly blends with the spices and warms with the alcohol. slight bitterness in the end. medium mouthfeel. definately all of the characteristics of a quad I just did not feel it was as well balanced as some of the better ones.

IrishBoy (4112) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 11, 2007
Bottle; nose of caramel, coriander, cloves, and yeastiness; slightly hazed copper with a small beige head; flavor of alcohol, caramel, spiciness, and a very minor bitter hop and alcohol finish. Label says "Quadrium Ale" and it sure tastes like a quad to me!

Enniskillen (2045) - Salinas, California, USA - APR 11, 2007
Color is an amber brown, thin white head. Aroma light alcohol, nutmeg, ginger, corriander, caramel, and toffee. Taste is an alcohol sweetness, nice malty body, light hoppiness in the background, with some toffee, and mild caramel.

Small bottle: the label is different then the one shown here, has a ‘Quadrium Ale’ title on gold bronze background in the upper left corner of the label in place of the number ’12’ in the circle, has a cloudy medium to dark brown pour with lots of floaties and few bubbles but did leave lots of lacing on the glass, big sweet aroma mixed with malt, bread, yellow cake, and caramel fragrances, has a light candy sugar sweet fragrance with a hint of honey, hop spice flower aromas, faint alcohol hiding in the background, sweet malt and honey flavors with a nice balance of bitterness, pale malt taste , bread and caramel flavors, I could sense very little alcohol in the mouth, the alcohol is there but did not bite like some beers which I found nice, this drink was sweet but balanced well with bitterness, there is a hop bite in the sip but more pronounced in the finish and a pepper sense to, this drink is balanced to the sweet side but has more bitterness then some others Belgian strong ale that make me sick of the beer by the time I get to the bottom of the bottle, nice mouth feel, this is a Winter Warmer brew, a sipper drink.
