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.

hotstuff (4069) - Indiana, USA - OCT 31, 2004
Bottle. Large ivory head with sparse lacing, transparent, very little carbonation, and an orange hue. Sweet and some fruit aroma. Flavor was sweet, tingly, hoppy and the alcohol was fairly well hidden IMO. Tingly mouthfeel. Mild aroma and flavor for a barley wine.

Golden amber/bronze colored. Light off white head and sticky, but small lacing. Aromas of earthy and grassy hops. Caramel and toffee. Bitter spices. Doughy or biscuity. Almost an apricot about it. Flavor includes a lot more fruit as well as caramel and spice. Woody alcohol. Bitter hops. Raisin bread. Warming and thick. Caramel malts rests nicely in the mouth. Finishes bitter and malty.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 17, 2004
This was one strange beer. It’s nothing like the American or British counter parts. It poured a hazy amber with a thick off-white head. Very fruity nose, with hints or earth and barn yard grasses. Medium bodied mouthfeel. Banana, clove, barn yard, alcohol, and lots of fruits. Fruits that barn yard animals should be eating. Not my favorite barley wine, but there really aren’t too many great beers from Van Steenberge.

BrockLanders (772) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2004
On tap at Falling Rock. Hazy orange amber; huge, yellowish head, irregular bubbles. Nose is fruity, but doesn’t do much to distinguish what kind of fruit. Taste is yeasty, spicy, and somewhat bitter with a hint of walnuts. Very creamy, velvety mouthfeel. Big malty, caramel, oranges, and raisin flavors are evident. The alcohol level is definitely detectable, but doesn’t detract from my enjoyment.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 11, 2004
1st flavor component is concord grape....I swear to god, that’s how it tastes! Mellows out to be a truly expansively deep canyon of a barleywine, complex and heady but still very smooth. One of the best I’d say!

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2004
Draught at The Rover, Göteborg. Amber colour. Malt, caramel and toffee nose. Peppery, light toffee flavour plus light roasty, sugary, Basset’s tidbits, overripe apples. Quite rich bitterness, with an undertone of dandelion. Grassy. ABV shines through. Long flavour. Nice.
