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.

MoritzF (9369) - 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.

Cybercat (5054) - Georgia, USA - JAN 16, 2007
A very drinkable ale with an inviting, dark honey-gold appearance. The taste is smooth yet sharp, with just a hint of bitterness. Because it is a strong ale, it does have a bite to it, but it goes down very nicely. Worth tracking down.

jazz88 (2664) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 16, 2007
Tap @ Toronado 1/15/07. A hazed amber color with a whiteh ead. Apricot, honey, spice, citrus and caramel aroma. Sweet and soft with a light caramel body, strong alcohol (warming) but well hidden. Sweet and enjoyable to the finish, but you have to watch out because this one sneeks up on you.

jrob21 (3405) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Clear copper color with big white head. There is a sweetness and unfortunately a predominating aroma of alcohol. Some yeast and malt as well. Alcohol is the predominant taste and is what you are left with after swallowing. Caramel and sugary sweetness are there too.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2007
750ml bottle. Deep golden orange color, tight bubbles in the head, soft on the palate. Yeast, honey, black pepper, and maybe coriander present. Alcohol more apparent as it warms.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 13, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2007 Pours a dingy copper color w/ a full, semi creamy froth that slowly recedes to a perfect dense caonpy and lacing that sticks to the walls. Beautiful! Aromas of heavily malted rock candy w/ a slight tartness. Very Belgian. Full nectar w/ mellow residual effers that create a soft fiberous cotton like texture. This is a big brew. The sweetness componant is high and so is the residual alcohol flavor. Very warming w/ flavors of malted rock candy, banana spice, bubble gum, glazed caramel, cherry cough drop. A generous brew w/ very strong flavors. As it warms flavors of tropical/buttery Chardonnay appear. Finish leaves a harsh feeling in my throat and is bittered w/ peach pit. Overall: it’s strong, sweet, and alcoholic. Let it age some, say 20 years or so. Very complex. This is another example of how ales are coming very close to wine in flavor profiles.

bb (8536) - Alamo, California, USA - JAN 6, 2007
Bottle. Copper color wityh a nice off-white head. Malty aroma with fruity (plum, apple) notes and some yeast. Caramel malt flavor with some yeast, spice, fruit (apple, raisin), and alcohol. Alcohol very present. Medium-full mouthfeel. Finishes drier than I’d expect. :ingering rich malt, alcohol, and spice.
