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.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 7, 2005
Clear dark golden with a good head and lacing. Spicy and fruity notes of passion fruit, dough, malt, and yeast. Spice, malt, and bread dough flavor with a nice hop bitterness and some acidity that gives it a bite.

Kinz (3299) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2013 Deep gold, little head. Odd aroma of sweet malt and wasabi. Flavor is thick caramel malt, pepper, a noticable alcohol element, and molasses at the finish. Surprisingly thin and short on the finish. Not as good as it held the promise to be. RERATE: July 2013 - From a draft at Mekong, courtesy of BC, cheers! More coppery and reddish than I recalled. Practically no head. Aroma was dark fruit, plum and raisin. Flavor matched. Full on the finish, a bit sweet. Not my favorite, but significantly better than my initial 3.1.

pivo (2566) - GERMANY - DEC 30, 2004
Strong doughy nose with some spice, copper color, low head. Thick malt, cookie-like and a spicy, peppery and even cinnamony end. Heavy alcohol. A fine quadrupel that serves as an excellent dessert beer.

larsniclas (5621) - Billdal, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2004
Draught at The Rover, Gothenburg, Sweden.. Hazy amber with a large head. Grassy and sweet aroma. Really full-bodied with loads of sweet fruits; almost too sweet.

aobecksy (700) - Middle of no where, Ohio, USA - DEC 26, 2004
Best since the comeback (minus the golden monkeys I was drinking tint he interm). Light head and malty aroma hide the enchanting treasures of taste that await. Tastes like lemon sugar cookies with an unexpected lingering finish--aftertaste.

Ernest (6231) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2004
Draught. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, cookie, caramel), lightly hoppy (flowers), moderately yeasty (cobwebs, mold), with a note of sherry. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lighlty sweet, lightly acidc, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, watery texture, soft carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Well-hidden alcohol, and a pleasant aroma, but overall pretty uninteresting.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - DEC 15, 2004
Draught. Red-Orange. Aroma of sherry, caramel, salty almonds, raisins, prunes, Belgian malts, citrus hops and big, big, alcohol. Tastes of big, caramel-like Belgian malts, toffee, sugars, fruits (prunes, raisins, plums), coconut and pineapple. Well hidden alcohol. An enjoyable beer and this pounds very well. It’s like drinking water.

YogiBeera (2475) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2004
Hazy amber color, small head. Yeast and dough nose, tastes like a loaf of bread. Goes by fast.

IndianaRed (2490) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 30, 2004
Bottle POurs a clear light orange witha busy fizzy offwhite head. Aromas are musty spicy and yeasty. Flavors are some of the classic begian yeast and spice. The ABV is there but hidden well for 11+%. Feel is a bit chalky and the finish is quick and slightly dry. Carbonation is quite lively. Fizzy even. YTastes more like a belgian strong than a BW. Not bad.

Sammy (8675) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2004
spicy, orange-pineapple citrusy, nice orange with pretty lace. Liquorish. biscuit medium mouthfeel. Bitter finish. Nice hops, noticeable alcohol.
