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.

un perfetto esempio di quadrupel..aspetto non molto invitante..scura/ramata con schiuma non estremamente perisistente e a grana grossolana (molte quadrupel sono così ma le preferisco più schiumose!)..forse anche perchè consumata lo stesso mese indicato per la scadenza..il resto è speciale..aroma di fichi,frutti scuri,lieve aroma di banana..sentori dolciastri di malto in generale e alcool..gusto caldo,corpo medio..leggermente acidula anche..luppolo quasi assente..yes!

SarkyNorthener (1420) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2014
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Dark amber beer with small head. Aroma of malts, dried fruit and caramel. Taste is wood, dried fruits, caramel, burnt malts, spice, yeast and a sweet finish. Moderate carbonation giving some fizz and a nice spice and alcohol feell on the tongue. Good stuuf.

Shark_Pants (130) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2014
330ml poured into a tulip glass. Pours a dark transparent red colour, with a one finger off-white head. Expected quad aromas of dark fruits, toffee and roasted malts. Taste is quite peppery on the tongue initially and then very sweet - caramel & dark fruits. Sweetness dries out in the finish with some light bitterness as well. Slightly unpleasant sharp metallic taste right at the end. Mouthfeel is a bit thinner than I normally like for a quad but the creaminess helps compensate. Quite enjoyable and I would have it again but clearly a tier below the great quads. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BOSSbrewer (1316) - Arkansas, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Pours amber with a slight haze. Rich creamy inch of head. Aroma is dark fruits and sweet malt. Very sweet and almost syrupy. I like the style but this one was bit too sweet. Some alcohol. Overall a nice beer.

Erzengel (1923) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2013
Rotbraun mit orangenem Einschlag in der Farbe, hellbeiger Schaum. Der Geruch ist süßlich-mild, aber nicht alkoholisch. Im Antrunk ist das Bier mild.weich, leicht malzig-süßlich. Zum Hauptteil hält sich der weiche Charakter, die alkoholische Note bleibt im Hintergrund. Dazu tolle Aromen von Milchschokolade, dunklem, reifen Obst, Trockenpflaumen, Kirschen. Der Nachgeschmack ist dann wieder etwas alkoholischer, lang anhaltend, immernoch mild-weich!
--> ein leckeres Bier, wobei ich sicher bin, man hätte diese tolle Aromenfülle auch mit deutlich weniger Alkoholgehalt hinbekommen!
Test vom 23.11.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,13,12,13,12,13 - 12,70

ALLOVATE (2281) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 18, 2013
At cellar temp and into a shallow snifter it produces up a fiery, ruddy copper with a lot of minute floaties caught in suspension. Head lifts to a good inch thick; off-white and bubbly, but this fades just as quickly. Buttery, sticky caramel, prunes in syrup, dates, madeira, twiggy bark and dry, woody spices dominate the nose. Quite oily in mouthfeel with a vinous, warming quality that lasts. Body is relatively lean. Dark stonefruit, madeira, prunes and a touch of buttery cocoa comes out. Yeasty notes throughout. Mild bitterness on the swallow, more malt than hop. Nice level of sweetness offsets the drying alcohol of the finish. Not terribly complex, but it does pack a punch. Just Ok! (33cL, BBE 12/15, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

prawlie (1055) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Dark red and gassy with a good creamy head. Malty, smooth, with some caramel notes. Malty aroma, lightly spiced. Tastes like a dubble despite the strength. Decent, but there are better variants of the style around.

gegwilson (623) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle in Bierbrasserie Cambrinus, Brugges. Pours chestnut with a thin white head. Quite a sweet and fruity beer. Very tastey and goes down easily for the strength. perhaps a bit too easily!

kermis (4290) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle shared at ABC Beers tasting. Pours nearly clear amber with a thick tan head. Aroma of caramel, rotten fruit. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Unpleasant palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Doesn’t seem right.

Pretty decent quadrupel. Nice balance between sweet and bitter, quite mild in taste compared to others, perhaps a little less complex but nontheless quite enjoyable. Like this one!
