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.

yespr (30747) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours dark golden to hazy orange with a dense white head. Overripe fruity, spiced and light yeasty with a clear presence of alcohol. Flavour is smooth, fruity yest deeply embedded in a caramelish and alcohol thick base. Yet the alcohol is burning as such, just providing a very smooth base and mouthfeel.

Ungstrup (29134) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2006
[I sampled mine just before the best before date - I bought almost 2 years prior] A hazy dark amber beer with a huge orange head. The aroma is strong with strong notes of fruit - very sweet fruit almost like candied and somewhat overripe fruit - I’m in the direction of mango and oranges, but the aroma also contains some woody notes. The flavor is sweet and the mouthfeel very smooth - the carbonation creates the great head, but doesn’t make it lively to drink, so it just glides down, until it leaves You with a slight alcohol burn on the back of the tongue and some fruity flavors on the palate. But before then the flavor contains strong fruit notes - again very sweet fruits - like just before turning over ripe - I detect peaches, mango, and oranges.

Papsoe (25089) - 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

oh6gdx (20239) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2006
Bottled. Brown hazy colour with big creamy beige head. Aroma is caramel, spices, slight alcohol and nuts. Flavour is caramel, toffee, spices, nuts, burnt sugar and some fruits. Also plum is noteable! Totally cool brew. Hides the alcohol totally in flavour, just burns a bit in the stomach. Excellent winterwarmer!

Sampled draught at Akkurat, Stockholm.
Brown-amber colour. Fruity honeyaroma. Very sweet. Clean and malty with syrupy mouthfeel. Quite hoppy, with bitter finish. Does good job of hiding the 12%.

2013-02-10, 11.5% ABV, bb 09.2015, 7-5-7-4-14=37
Beautiful dark amber color, bright and clean; compact generous head. Malt and caramel aroma, with a hint of smoke and alcohol. Round body, strong caramel flavor, but a bit too boozy.

2010-11-13, 11.5% ABV, 7-5-8-4-16=40
Dark amber color; generous, compact head. Mild but nice aroma, malt and caramel, some candi sugar, light alcohol and Madeira wine. Good body structure, quite round too; good malt and caramel flavor, quite rich, with a shade of cheesy Belgian yeast; quite sweet, with some candi sugar cleanness, and some sweet liquorice. The alcohol is well hidden; it’s a bit too much carbonated. Solid.

2003-11-15, 11.5% ABV, 8-4-9-5-17=43
Cloudy orange-golden color. Malt, caramel, hop aroma; curaçao; and light phenol at the end. Very good and strong flavor, big malt; caramel, oranges. Big strong one, well brewed, well hiding the alcohol; not really complex.
