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 (3182) - 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.

rami_pl (557) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 28, 2015
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.

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 (187) - 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.

jookos (3602) - FINLAND - JUL 17, 2015
Bottle. Brown light hazy. Malty dark bready, dried fruity nose. Some figs, plums, malts. Full bodied, sweetness, lots of dry fruit flavours. Deep, flavourful. Like a sweet dry fruity cake. Almost too sweet for me now, good tho.

inbirraveritas (1357) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 15, 2015
Bottled, 33 cl. Opal reddish brown one with some sediments and a creamy, finger thick remaining beige pillow on its top. Smell of dried fruits, caramel and raised pie. Refined aroma dominated by dried fruits and brown sugar escorted by alcohol, some choco and earth, texture is syrupy. Lingering and dry, peppery alcoholy, earthy, tart fruity finish. Fine as expected.

Pours a dark brown. Aromas of dark fruits and coffee. Similar flavours. You get some booze at the end too.
