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.

paulvanpelt (445) - Reusel, - APR 2, 2013
Prachtig hazelnootbruin, nevelig bier met lichtbeige, vlokkige schuimkraag. Smaak is een prima balans tussen bitter en zoet, medium tot volle body, medium co2, stevige textuur en lange afdronk. Aroma van donker fruit, caramel, geroosterde mouten en alcohol. Dit laatste is te prominent aanwezig, waardoor de balans een beetje zoek is. Jammer, want buiten dat is het een voortreffelijk bier.

shrubber85 (9646) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Brown sugar, raisin, caramel malt, and alcohol aroma. Cloudy brown with small head. Sweet raisin, brown sugar/toffee malt, and mildly bitter herbal hay/alcohol flavor. Nice body and balance. Very pleasant.

JDBaker11058 (1696) - Maryland, USA - JAN 26, 2016
appearance: medium amber brown, a little cloudy, short frothy medium tan head, surprisingly persistent; good lacing. aroma: lots of brown sugar, toffee, raisin, and some brandy notes. taste: sweet, with scads of brown sugar and toffee, caramel, and candi sugar; there’s some raisin and cherry fruit notes under that. finish: lasting sweetness, a bit of yeast, and then at the very end some alcohol warmth comes smoothly out. notes: Unbelievably smooth for the alcohol contect. Big and sweet. A perfect beer for the Blizzard of 2016. Bottle from Sarah for Beerdvent 2015.

Bozo_skeleton (858) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JAN 22, 2016
robe ruby sombre, grosse carbo de fines bulles, collet moyen persistant, mousse cremeuse. Aromes fruités, raisin, pruneau, pain, caramel. Corps liquoreux, rond, légèrement piquant sur la finale. On retrouve a nouveau le raisin et des notes chaleureuse d’alcool.

Bottle: (labeled as Quadrium Ale...11.0%) Pours cloudy light brown with a thin tan cap. Raisin, wood, caramel scent. Taste is sweet, caramel malt, dark fruit. Only a trace of noticeable alcohol. Amazingly smooth.

flying_pig (1304) - SCOTLAND - JAN 7, 2016
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe (£3.39):
A very nice Quad from Urthel & one that was quite an easy beer to drink despite the fact it came in at over 11% abv. The balance of the beer was a good one with the dark fruits working well with the caramel sweetness & the warming alcohol touches were mainly right at the end, although it was easy to tell it was a strong beer from the start; an excellent beer & on that surprisingly was even better than the bottle of Hop-It I tried from the same brewery back in 2014.

Ysok02 (626) - MOns, BELGIUM - DEC 20, 2015
Robe brune, reflets ambrés. Nez épicé, fourrure, cacao sur un fond de levure et de pétrole. Bouche à l’attaque explosive, chocolatée et cacaoté, de la rondeur, et une finale doucereuse. Un peu too much pour moi.

dnicolaescu (1521) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - NOV 20, 2015
BOTTLE 33 CL. Hazy ruby-red with floaties, beige head. Vague fruity aroma with notes of molasses, dark bread, spice and a touch of alcohol. Taste: same fruit and dark malts, balanced by toasty/roasty bready notes, spice. Also, the relatively light „Belgian” body makes if feel more drinkable as opposed to more sticky. The alcohol is quite harsh vodka-like at first, but gets smoother and sherry-like with the time. Very good.
