Urthel Samaranth Quadrium Ale:
When Bas and Hildegard were married, they did not serve wine at their celebration, they served a special strong beer brewed by Hildegard to commemorate the occasion. It was Samaranth and was inspired by the Quadrupel of Koningshoeven and other big, malty special beers of the Trappists.
The beer was such a hit that it has been in the selection ever since. Dusky, deep brown in color with a slightly off-white foam. In the nose, it's sweet and faintly spicy with notes of dried fruit, nuts, chocolate, and marzipan. On the palate, it's big and bold, massively malty and slightly warming from the alcohol. It is long and shockingly dry in the finish.
