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!

Pours a small off- white frothy head that mostly diminishes. Body is copper colored and sparkling. Aroma contains light bread, roasted malts, caramel, grapefruit, dough, grape and raisin, spices and alcohol. Flavor is sweet and light bitter, going to sweet and to finish in bitter. Body is full and syrupy, with soft carbonation. The total is a bit boozy, there's too much alcohol in it for my taste. Still having a cold, so I might not have picked up all aroma's. I'll try it again another time, but give it some more time to mature.

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 (663) - 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.

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 (1506) - 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 (578) - 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.

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 (1766) - 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.

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.
