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.

Judging by the other comments, I must have a bad batch. All four bottles. Upon opening the bottle...ugh.... D M S. Cooked cabbage. The beer itself tastes good. I will try again and re-rate if the veggie odor is gone.

Bottle thanks to Tony for my bday. Pours a cloudy medium brown with floaty bits. Big tan head. Aromas of dark fruits and grape hard candies. Taste is very sweet with a decent alcohol kick. Glad to share it.

This beer poured a dark brown with a classically Belgian huge tan head. It smelled of sugar, bread, cherry, stone fruit, molasses and alcohol ... lots of alcohol. Brown sugar, cinnamon, bread, roastiness and the ever present alcohol made up the flavor. This beer was okay but a bit lacking due to the main aroma and flavor being alcohol.

0.33l bottle. Hazy orangish brown body, off-white head with huge chunks of floating sediments. Aroma of caramel, bread, candi sugar, plums and pepper. Taste of caramel, candi sugar, reisins and some floral hops. Very nice.

Trappist glass. Bottle. Brown, hazy with medium, beige head. Aroma of candy, sugar, caramle and dark fruits (plums). Taste is light bitter with lots of sweet malty notes. Medium body, medium carbonation, finish is sweet, medium alcohol warming. In general quite average quadrupel.

Arômes fruité caramel, agrume, boisé. Apparence ambrée trouble. Goût Caramel, pain, noix, alcool. Palais légèrement rapeux, un peu acide. Bière marquée par sa force en alcool et ses arômes. Je met 17 parce que c’est une belge

Elephant Pub, butelka. Zaskakujaco jasny jak na styl, czyli ciemno bursztynowy, opalizujacy, ze zbitymi resztkami drozdzy i nieimponujaca piana. Aromaty glownie suszonych czy kandyzowanych owocow, cala mieszanka - figi, daktyle, rodzynki. Ze swiezych banan, morele. Na to nalozona alkoholowosc, ale taka ladnie sie wkomponowywujaca i nienamolna, cos w stylu wina, czy moze bardziej sherry. Na to wszystko nalozone mocne, slodowe, zbozowo-chlebowe, slodkie aromaty a la barley wine. Brak nut czekoladowo-kawowych. W ustach czuc bardzo wysoka slodkosc, jest tez echo wiekszosci aromatow, czuc alkohol ale znow - pasujacy. Bardzo syropowe, lepkie, wyklejajace w ustach, do picia drobnymi lyczkami. Jesli idzie o calosc, kojarzace sie raczej z quad’ami a la La Trappe niz a la Pannepot czy Rochefort (a skojarzenie mialem zanim sie kapnalem, ze robione w Koningshoeven) - zapewne stad wyraznie nizsze oceny na RB. Jak dla mnie bomba, acz od La Trappe jednak ciut gorsze.

Tsekouratos (544) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - AUG 21, 2015
Pours a deep red color with a thin beige head. Aromas of sugar, plums, caramel. Taste is rather sweet with sugar, caramel, dark fruits, plums, raisins. Really complex and very nice. Medium body with medium carbonation.

ciocanelu (271) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 17, 2015
Dark amber color, much lighter than other quads. Aroma is yeast forward with a slight alcohol presence. Taste starts sweet, with hints of liquorice and gets more balanced to the end. Carbonation is on the higher side. Overall it’s a good beer, not the best of the style but still a good choice.

Aroma: Raisin, dried fruits, caramel, sugar, slight chocolate. Appearance: Amber/brown coloured beer with a slight off-white foamy head. Taste/Palate: Starts really sweet with raisin, sugar, caramel and syrup. Ends slightly bitter, but still rather sweet, with slight chocolate and dried fruits.
