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.

Torrefacto (372) - SPAIN - FEB 21, 2014
Color rojizo con espuma color marfil. Aromas de caramelo, frutas confitadas y miel. En boca es densa y dulce con los mismos matices que el aroma y con una ligera acidez afrutada. Un buen trago.

Bottle @ home. Pours a very clear ruby red color with a yellow-ish head. Smells of raisins, honey and a little bit metal, some wood and caramel. Taste is some wood and lots of raisins, mixed with alcohol. Almond paste comes to mind. The aftertaste has heavy alcohol taste, but not in a bad way. The aftertaste is not as sweer as most quadruples. Quite some carbonation. Lovely beer.

emartell (221) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - JAN 24, 2014
Aroma potente y agradable. Destacan sus notas frutales, básicamente frutos secos y frutos rojos. Se percibe ligeramente nota a levadura. En cuanto a su apariencia color rojizo obscuro con tonalidades rubi. Cerveza turbia. Cuerpo redondo, carbonatacion baja. Corona de espuma abundante de media retencion. En boca se percibe la malta, un ligero dulzor, notas a levadura y un final totalmente frutal. Al paladar es una cerveza compleja. En primera instancia es suave y con notas a levadura. Posteriormente se detectan sabores ligeramente tostados y caramelizados por la malta, un ligero sabor a nuez es detectable. Finalmentre frutos rojos principalmente las cerezas. El final es seco y medio. En resumen es una muy buena cerveza, ligeramente mas seca de lo que seele ser el estilo pero que se disfruta plenamente.

Maakun (320) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2014
Deep red/brown with fast disappearing bubbly white head. Candy sugar, chocolate cake, toast, spices, light tropical fruits. Sweet taste, with very noticable alcohol. Lightly bitter finish. Medium bodied, slightly creamy carbonation. Really nice stuff, but there’s just a bit too much alcohol for me.

StoutHead (483) - DENMARK - JAN 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a beautiful ruby-red color with an off-white head. Aroma is of malt, caramel and fruits. Taste is of malt, spices, fruits, nuts, pepper and syrup. A hint of bitterness in the aftertaste, but overall quite sweet with a huge body. Not especially complex but pleasantly smooth and drinkable. VERY good.

Bottle. Clear red-copper pour with foamy off white head. Aroma is fruity with lots of herbal notes, peppermint, hay, nutty, light butterscotch. Taste is sweet and nutty, walnut and honey flavors. Palate is rich, nice booziness, well carbed. Enjoyable quad.
