First of I have to say the aroma on this one is extremly weak all I can detect is a bit of dark fruits, and some sugar. One of the least noticable I have experienced. Pours a surprisingly light brown color with some reddish orange colors present.Taste is of raisens, figs, belgian candi sugar, and tabacco. The mouthfeel is unbelieveably acidic and harsh. It almost hurts to swallow. However as this beer warms and the carbonation starts to dissapte it becomes much more drinkable. I would recommend letting this beer breathe quite a bit.

copper hue with light amber head, the aroma is caramel with raisin note. it is hellishly strong and malty, to be slowly sipped in winter...

DarkMagus (528) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 10, 2008
Light amber color, with a short but sticky off-white head. Somewhat light, but very nice and sweet fruity aroma with a hint of some spices, fresh green grapes, bubblegum, and sugar. Flavors were intensely sweet and sugary, but rich and with some depth at the same time. Dried fruits, banana, more sugary candy bubblegum-ness. Kind of addictive. Very seriously alcoholic though, which scared me a bit. Mouthfeel was soft and sticky as one might expect, but perhaps a bit thinner than I prefer. Not a bad beer, certainly well-made... but I felt like there wasnt enough serious flavor coming from this brew to justify its high alcohol content.

Bottle. It comes on a little strong, maybe thats just me. Thick on the pour, thick on the tounge and thick down the hatch. It smelled great, but the taste was just to much for me. Im aware of the fact this is probably a reflection of my novice palate as much as it is anything else but hey its ratebeer, and its my opinion. Had some hops, yeast, caramel, molasas, sweet flavors.

Urthel Quadrium had a small wite head. Arome of aromatic hops, years, and citrus. Haed a nice finish. Overall, a good, if not great Belgian Ale.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 6, 2008
Urthel Quadrium has a clear amber color with a frothy off white head. Malty sweet, earthy, musky aroma. Med body with a sticky mouthfeel. Lightly sweet flavor of caramel and peach nectar with an earthy belgian yeast essence. Has a nice alcohol tang to finish. Not cloying or overly sweet like many Quads. 81205

yespr (43253) - 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.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2008
Dark golden with a nice head and a wonderful aroma with notes of fruit and caramel. The flavour is just right! It has nice sweetness, dark fruit, caramel, candy sugar and a touch of alcohol - really nice!

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2008
A dark amber colored beer, with a large creamy beige head. The smels of some exotic fruits. A little bitter tast and some sweet touches. Veru alcoholic, which gives a warm feeling in your mouth. A good beer from a brewery firm with a very nice story.

Truly atrocious. I couldnt tell what flavors were present because I was overwhelmed by an ever-present cheap liquor taste.
