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.

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - DEC 16, 2012
33cl Bottle, purchased at Downtown Wine & Spirits - Somerville, MA. Subtle spicy aroma. On the palate, a juicy, almost Barley-wine like malt range and complexity, with some booziness reminiscent of gin and a wonderfully deep earthy spice. It manages to stay dry, give a lot out in terms of flavor and not burn too hot. It’s got a refined, aged fruitiness that I associated with aged beers and brandies. Warming up, the hop oxidation gets a little out of control and this starts to really just taste like a mediocre, old barleywine, lacking the yeast intrique.

33cl flesje via Het Bierhuis, Breda Alcoholpercentage van 11,5% Uitgeschonken in originele Urthel glas Uiterlijk: kastanjebruin met klein schuimkraagje dat wel blijft zitten Aroma en smaak: zoet als donker fruit, rozijnen, warme gloed door de alcohol Conclusie: ik hou er wel van een stevige quadrupel. Niet verkeerd. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jultsu (162) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2014
75ml pullo, parasta ennen: 01-2014. Alkoholinen, hunajainen, luumuinen tuoksu. Siman ruskea, vaahdoton, lähes hapoton. Liukas, vetinen, rusinainen, alkoholinen suutuntuma. Jälkimakuna vetinen alkoholin polte. Todennäköisesti 7 kuukautta yli päiväyksen vaikutti makuun. Odotin laajempaa maku/hajuskaalaa.
