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.

graziano85 (360) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 16, 2015
Hazy orange/brown color, with big head, staying. Smell is fruity, red fruits, fig. Taste is a bit sweet, liquorous, but the alcohol is too intense in the taste. Full bodied. Nice, but too heavy for me.

kingaugusta (22) - Georgia, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Pours copper with an off white large foamy head. news is potent with candy, caramel, and very boozy. extremely hot beer was tons of booze and sweetness immediately on the front and a long sticky slightly hoppy finish. Did I mention this is a hot beer? This is taking big Belgians to the extreme but it’s still a decent beer.

Dark (28) - FRANCE - MAY 12, 2015
Robe ambrée limpide, pétillante surmontée d’une mousse crêmeuse légèrement fonçée. Goût franc, fort et vigoureux, arômes de fruits secs (pruneau, châtaigne, datte), alcool présent mais non envahissant. Plus une grosse ambrée dans l’esprit qu’une véritable "ABT", on est à des années-lumières d’une Rochefort 10 à mon sens. Pour une bière aussi puissante, on remarquera cette formidable atténuation, ce qui peut d’ailleurs la rendre très dangereuse ! On est clairement sur de la grosse artillerie, cette Samaranth remplacera donc tout digestif tant elle se montre chaleureuse et réconfortante, à savourer aux moments opportuns !

Pyobon (1093) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2015
(Bottle) Clear toffee brown with ruby highlights and good off-white head. Subtle and pleasant caramel aroma. Fantastic palate - slightly creamy, very slightly sticky, plenty of body with excellent carbonation that is both mouthfilling and bright. Excellent taste - the backbone is a rich pleasant caramel maltiness. There’s some subtle berry notes in the foretaste and some nice gentle pepper and spice in the finish, with some of the alcohol showing through. Great beer.

Cerveza cuadruple exquisita, con toques afrutados y dulces. Entra de lujo y tiene un olor que invita a beberla. Repetiré.

lello4ever (241) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
Splendida quadrupel belga, colore arancio scuro bruno, schiuma poco persistente e non compatta, molto dolce all’olfatto e ovviamente anche al palato vista la gradazione. Sapore di malto, caramello, frutta nel tipico stile di queste birre d’abbazia. Eccellente, l’alcool si sente ma non limita la godibilità.

Reddish orange colour with creamy head. Aroma of caramel, raisins, citrus, dark fruits and hops. Flavour is the same with evident alcohol note, but at the same time is well hidden or discret.

Andy_ (972) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 29, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2015 330 ml bottle
Orangeish to reddish brown hazy beer with beige head leaving lacing. Aroma has alcohol, Belgian yeast, licorice, dark sugar and dark fruits. Flavor has licorice, alcohol, yeast and dark fruits. Palate is full and foamy. Finish has mild bitterness and alcohol. Aftertaste is liqueurish sweet with dark sugar, licorice, figs and yeast. At first this beer was way too boozy, but adding the sediment softened it and made it more enjoyable. Still quite straight-forward and too sweet.
