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.

Small bottle: the label is different then the one shown here, has a Quadrium Ale title on gold bronze background in the upper left corner of the label in place of the number 12 in the circle, has a cloudy medium to dark brown pour with lots of floaties and few bubbles but did leave lots of lacing on the glass, big sweet aroma mixed with malt, bread, yellow cake, and caramel fragrances, has a light candy sugar sweet fragrance with a hint of honey, hop spice flower aromas, faint alcohol hiding in the background, sweet malt and honey flavors with a nice balance of bitterness, pale malt taste , bread and caramel flavors, I could sense very little alcohol in the mouth, the alcohol is there but did not bite like some beers which I found nice, this drink was sweet but balanced well with bitterness, there is a hop bite in the sip but more pronounced in the finish and a pepper sense to, this drink is balanced to the sweet side but has more bitterness then some others Belgian strong ale that make me sick of the beer by the time I get to the bottom of the bottle, nice mouth feel, this is a Winter Warmer brew, a sipper drink.

marcus (9841) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 6, 2007
This copper ale poured with a decent off-white head. There is a "strong ale" feel to this brew - malty with a somewhat harsh alcohol taste and a yeast aroma.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - MAR 25, 2007
Tap and bottle. Pours with a copper to orange color and a nice head. This quickly turns into one of my favorite Belgians with great flavors of nuts, figs, grapefruit and bread. Aroma is dominated by a typical Belgian yeastiness. If it warms up the alcohol comes through a bit more but is well hidden otherwise. An outstanding brew.

LinusStick (3367) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2007
An extreme Belgian beer. This tastes like an American Strong with a Belgian twist. Pour was a cloudy ruby with a puffy white head. Aroma was yeasty and "Belgian-y". Taste was strong malt and alcohol with a syrupy mouthfeel. Fruity aftertaste with an alcohol burn. This is not bad but almost tastes "American" if that makes sense.

Padron4KM (809) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2007
750 ml bottle corked and caged.

Smudged date code on the back of the bottle.

Clear dark golden, steady carbonation

The latte foam like head recedes slowly and delicate lace patterns trace its path down the glass.

Initial aroma is ripe fruits and yeast, later some caramel and light brown sugar emerge with maybe a little bubblegum esters.

Flavor is ripe fruit, mango, banana with a slightly sugary sweetness that is balanced by a nice refreshing bitter finish.

Creamy mouth feel. Alcohol is deceptively hidden.

I got this bottle for just over $4, a steal IMHO, if it wasnt mispriced Im going back for the lot of them.
