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.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2005
Dark copper colour with a small off white head. Malty aroma with a fruity sweetness and a light alcohol note. Fruity sweet flavor, some yeast and hints of alcohol in a dry finish.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 30, 2005
Bottle. Pours a solid amber color with a nice, thick head that forms an "island" as it settles. Aroma is orange peel, with a slight tinge of lemon. Mouthfeel is slick and smooth, taste is more orange and yeast. Malt is on the back of the tongue, but only slightly- still, it’s there. Very drinkable for 11.5% ABV. Nice beer.

TheBeerGod (5633) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2005
Bottle. Slightly hazed bronze with a small light tan head. Nose is yeasty with floral hops, angel food cake, light creamy maltiness, fresh cut flowers, and ripe fruits (pears?). Taste is yeasty and spicy with floral hops, creamy malts, light cake notes, fresh fruit (peaches), some candyish notes and light alcohol. Body is smooth at times but still has a carbonation "spike" in it. Overall is medium-full. Finishes with more spicy hops and yeast muddled with candied fruits, light cake notes, creamy malts, and alcohol. Minimal warmth from an 11.5% beer. Nice stuff!

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2005 Couleur cuivrée vers le bronze, d’apparence translucide. Arômes de dattes, de bleuets, de baies de genièvre et de vieilles feuilles d’automne trouvées par terre. On y trouve aussi des arômes très résineux suggérant le feuillage vert tel le sapin. Corps d’épaisseur moyenne contenant des flaveurs de vieux miel cuivré suggérant une faible madérisation. Un mordant d’alcool arrive en finale mais les conifères l’obligent à garder ses distances jusqu’à ce qu’il se résigne à prendre la fuite. Un laborieux mélange des 4 saisons. Déguster en fût lors du Zythos Beer Fest, St-Niklaas, voyage Europe 2005.

Bottled (BB 06/2006)
Copper brown color, white steady creamy head. Aroma is quite weak: some yeast, wood, malt and alcohol. Very full mouthfeel. Alcoholic burn is mixed with sweet fruity flavors: caramel, peach, apricot. Alcohol milds in the aftertaste to bitterish flavors. The real malt liquer! :)

Nuffield (3899) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2005
I knew there was alcohol here but I didn’t think it was 11.5%. Dark shade of copper (I had it side by side with the Real Ale Devil’s Backbone, and this was darker, though these aren’t exactly comparable beers). Generous aroma of raisins, caramel, syrup, spices, and some alcohol. In the mouth, the bite of the alcohol was a nice counterpart to the carbonation tinging and the smooth richness of the body. Vibrant flavors, adding yeast, a touch of fruit (apricots, banana), and more caramel. All around very enjoyable. (on tap, Gingerman, Dallas, TX)

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 11, 2005
(Bottled) Dark amber color with a medium, tight, lasting and lacy head. Very toffee-caramely aroma with sweetish malt and noticeable, although not overwhelming alcohol. Sweet, malty, syrupy flavor with alcohol - lots of it! Warming, alcoholic finish. Medium-bodied, sugary, warming and alcoholic palate. Quite carbonated. Sugar and the body can’t hide the strong alcohol dominating this brew. Still quite drinkable compared to strong Baltic lagers.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 10, 2005
Draught @ Papago

The beer comes fresh from the tap a hazy deep amber color with a plentiful head that is a winsome light tan and creamy in texture, after decomposition the resultant lace forms a surrounding blanket on the glass. Nose is earthy from the yeast, an over ripe apple aroma also noticed, spicy and fresh, start is slightly sweet with a nice grain profile, the top is middling in its feel to the palate. Finish is striking in its acidity, the hops plentiful and the 12 percent ABV leaves a bit of alcohol bitterness at the very dry finish, potent brew, and quite tasty to boot.

MiP (14517) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 3, 2005
Dark golden colour. Very malty and peppery aroma and flavour. Big beer, very nice. Aftertaste OK, but not perfect(?).
