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.

jalichio999 (502) - BRAZIL - FEB 25, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2007 Bottle. Reddish coloration, with a very nice beige cream, dense and persistent. Floral, citric, with notes of caramel malt, vanilla and chocolate. Perceivable alcohol. Average/high carbonation. Full-bodied, but it is not so complex.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2007
(Bottkle 33 cl) Hazy, dark amber with a dense and creamy, off-white head. Rich aroma of sherry and wood. Very heavy body with accents of sweet, roasted malts and caramel and then again this woodiness, desert wine and noble rot. A surprisingly solid bitterness. Good stuff. 050207

Bockyhorsey (2626) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - FEB 8, 2007
12oz Bottle. Aoma was yeasty biscuts, malt, and alcohol. Copper/amber body with off white head. Had a strong bitter alcohol start to the flavor. Malt blended in to take away some of the bitter and sour fruity flavor was appearent. Alcohol presence though out this beer, little harsh on palate and leaves you with a sour lemon aftertaste.

takecareofmac (2) - tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 6, 2007 does not count
Deep Golden, nearly brown color, with a potent aroma that brings attention to the consumer. An intense first drink that can be felt from head to toe followed by a complementary smooth finish that makes the Samaranth a covetted brew.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2007
750ml bottle pours clear amber with a nice short white frothy head that laces the sides of the trappist glass that I served it in. Aromas of tropical fruits, mango, bannana, and a little pear. Flavor is of yeast, bannana, pear, a little apple, maybe some mango too. A little malt behind it with some caramel and bready notes. A good dose of spice on the finish too. Quite complex and delightful. Lots of carbonation gives this a good soft mouthfeel with a little alcohol tickle at the finish but the 11.5 was covered quite well in my opinon.. I think this is a pretty nice beer.

Lunkie (1752) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JAN 30, 2007
Spiritus malt aroma with fruit. Murky brwn yellow colour with great head and lacing. Malt spiritus flavour with fruit. Smooth palate.

MoritzF (9224) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2007
(bottle) Hazy, amber colour with a small frothy off-white head. Sweet toasty, malty aroma with caramel, notes of raisins and alcohol. Sweet flavour, full bodied, lively carbonated mouthfeel. Maty, yeasty and raisin-fruity taste; sweet malty finish with a touch of liquorice and a present but non-disturbing alcoholic note. Very likeable.

kreepindeth (404) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 24, 2007
Alcohol flavors dominate this beer. Strong alcoholic and metallica notes overwhelm any other flavors that may be present here. There are some spicy yeast notes here but the alcohol largely kicks everything’s ass.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2007
Orange with a medium depth persistent white head. Malty, bready and slightly funky aroma. Very honey sweet, thick and syrupy. Almost like drinking liquid jelly (jello). Believe it or not this actually is very nice. There is also some spicy qualities and only a little bit of alcohol at the very end. Really good especially when you consider it had a phrase something like "Belgium’s trendiest beer" on the label. This would normally be a warning to stay away.
