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.

UDBeernut (2615) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Tan with small off white head with good retention. Nose is inviting mix of malt, yeast, dark fruits, caramel and a twang of booze. Mouth is a bit unsettling as its sharp booze up front slowly washed by caramel. This one certainly does not live up to the nose.

Night_Cap (86) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - AUG 25, 2016
Bottle 330ml (2015) – cellared for 1 year. Served at room temperature. Pours a hazy copper. Head is small, off white and mostly lasting. Aroma is sweet and complex with notes of plum brandy; lighted toasted spiced fruit loaf, dried figs, brandy stewed apples, Belgian candy sugar, golden syrup, cinnamon, dark rum chocolate (light) and wood. Flavour is vinous with a very light bitterness; dark plums (strong), dark cherries (strong), ruby port (strong), toffee sauce, dark, cherry chocolate, fruitcake spices, lightly toasted brown bread and light notes of dried leaves and wood in the finish. Full bodied with soft carbonation, a thick texture and a superb length finish. ABV is VERY well hidden!

Fules (727) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 28, 2016
Monumentális, hosszan tartó hab, félbarna szín. Malátás, belga ales illat. Nagyon édes, karamelles, quadrupeles ízvilág, enyhe keserűvel és némi gyümölcs, valamint fűszeres aromákkal. Testes, nehéz sör, az alkoholtartalmát is csak félig-meddig sikerült elrejteni. Utóíze enyhén kesernyés és édes.

zarguon (15) - FINLAND - JUL 21, 2016
33cl bottle. Nice amber colour with little head. Couldn’t recognise any clear aroma. Taste caramel, brown sugar, slightly acidic and alcoholic. Great taste with not disturbing alcohol taste. Soft carbonation.

Icedwarf (1219) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2016
Donkerbruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is erg krachtig en warm, licht zoet met iets van zoethout, anijs, pruim en rozijnen. Smaak blijft lang hangen.

Maris (1366) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2016 From a 330ml bottle on 7/6/2016. Pours a murky medium brown with a medium to big head. The nose features brown sugar, toffee, rye bread and Belgian yeast. Flavour wise, this is a sweetie - heaps of caramel, toffee, dates, sultanas and brown sugar. Finishes with a mild spicy bitterness which compliments the sweetness nicely. A slightly syrupy texture with soft carbonation. Cohesive, delicious and dangerously drinkable. One of the best quads I’ve had, and amazing value at around $7.50 a bottle.

sjorsvdg (409) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2016
Deze quadrupel heeft een kastanjebruine kleur en een mooie crčmekleurige schuimlaag. De smaak is vol en rijk, met tonen van framboos, koriander, blauwe bes, steranijs. Lekker.

Cristobal37 (762) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 11, 2016
Boozy brown sugar and spicy aroma. Heavy beer not dissimilar to Gulden Draak (perhaps not as good though). Sadly tons of sediment everywhere. Ruby brown color. Some medicinal herbs in the finish. Not my favorite, but certainly nothing wrong with it.

bombelsky (28) - - APR 3, 2016
Cloudy amber color. I was pouring it so carefully but it was impossible not to get small particules of a sediment floating there. Small off white head. Very warm aroma of a bread, plum brandy, caramel, herbs, blackberry, raisins and apricot. Very well balanced taste, whith sweet flavor slightly standing out. Medium bodied, average carbonated with oily and thick palate. Bit spicy. Long dry finish which is warming a throat nicely. Tasty beer.

Smak: ciemne owoce, sma?one ?liwki, lekka palono??, orzechy, spieczona skórka od chleba. Goryczka "przypalona", sucha, krótka ale intensywna.

freretoc (1584) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 5, 2016
Bue en bouteille de 33cl au Kilarney, couleur ambrée, belle mousse et effervescence moyenne. Attaque au nez sur la prune et le pruneau. En bouche on a la męme attaque sur la prune et le pruneau, continuité sur le sucre candy avec un côté trčs rond limite moelleux. Bičre avec un final grillé et caramélisé pas mal du tout !
