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.

11 ounce bottle. Sweet. Malty. very nice. We split the small bottle and shared a great beer. Got to love Urthel. And in the Urthel glass? Hey. I’m a beer geek.

jason (1703) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2006
bottle aged three years. Nothing stood out here. Mediocre all the way except for apperance. Felt like it was missing flavor, spices. Not too bad but not worth trying again.

DocLock (8341) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Clear orangy deep coppery pour with 1-finger fluffy off-white head. Aroma of fruit, apple, pear, funky peaty malt, some candi sugar, even a hint of banana. The flavor was candi sugary and peaty malty, with funk notes coupled with slight florals, spiciness, and a very subdued banana nut bread element. Very complex and enjoyable, with well hidden alcohol.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - AUG 20, 2006
Clear gold, medium off white head, nice lace. Alcohol, orange, peach, yeast on the nose. Smooth medium body, lightly carbonated, very little stickiness. Sweet vinous character, lot of fruity undertones, some bittering hops dry it out after the swallow. Some chewiness in the finish, with a lingering mildly bitter aftertaste. Enjoyable.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - AUG 19, 2006
A peachy amber color with a slight haze from bottle conditioning and pours without a huge, fluffy head that is common in Belgian ales. A rich, buttery, pure caramel aroma with complementary, tropical fruit. This is a touch of cork in this beer but not to the point of disturbing the palate. In fact it helps to balance the beer from being overly cloying. The aroma and flavor are quite similar in this dessert-style beer. I recommend sharing this with someone because the sweetness can fatigue you palate to the point of boredom.

Skinnyviking (7556) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2006
Bottle. High white and good looking head. Hazy orange body. Once again the "muddy waters" malt aroma that a lot of brewers seem to like. Why ? The flavor does indeed have some alcohol but I would not have guessed on 11.5. Actually the flavor is quite smooth and well rounded malt and pleasant hops. Pleasant surprise (apart from the aroma).

gunnfryd (11963) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2006
Bottle. Amber colour with a beige head. Aroma is alcohol,apple, yeast. Flavour is dried fruits, yeast, apple, alcohol and candi-sugar.

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 6, 2006
Pours a cloudy amber color with a thick, frothy white head. Aroma of yeast, fruits, spices with some sweetness. Good flavor of yeast, fruits, spices with sweetness and a bitter finish. The body is light with an oily texture and soft carbonation. It is good and enjoyable but somewhat it doesn’t inspire me to give a better rating than this, maybe the malt could be richer and thicker.

dwyerpg (4755) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Aroma isn’t that much. A little floral fruitiness. The head is fairly porous and only somewhat tasty. A very nice flavor that doesn’t come off that strong. Is sweet, has the alcohol and surprisingly, a little metal taste to the finish. A little expensive.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2009 Bottle, Københavnske Øldage 2006. Light amber. Average orange head. For an ale this strong it is quite nice. Mellow bitterness and caramelly sweet malts. Nice smooth finish. In all a wonderful beer.
