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 (3203) - Ithaca, New York, 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 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 (1184) - 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 (1349) - 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.

Deze quadrupel heeft een kastanjebruine kleur en een mooie crèmekleurige schuimlaag. De smaak is vol en rijk, met tonen van framboos, koriander, blauwe bes, steranijs. Lekker.

Cristobal37 (731) - 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.

freretoc (1548) - 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 même attaque sur la prune et le pruneau, continuité sur le sucre candy avec un côté très rond limite moelleux. Bière avec un final grillé et caramélisé pas mal du tout !

bonkiedeaap (606) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle from dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is ruby red colored and has a large cream colored head, with livingly CO2. In the aroma tones of figs, licorice and dark fruits. The aroma is full and smells like drop and a light fruitiness of cherries. The taste is full and well balanced with tones of drop, honey and that gives it a soft taste. The high level of Co2 gives this beer it’s freshness and after a wile a light fruitiness of raspberries is noticable. The finish is long and very complex, with nice warming alcohol.

shrubber85 (10357) - 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.
