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.

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.

graziano85 (345) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 16, 2015
Hazy orange/brown color, with big head, staying. Smell is fruity, red fruits, fig. Taste is a bit sweet, liquorous, but the alcohol is too intense in the taste. Full bodied. Nice, but too heavy for me.

kingaugusta (22) - Georgia, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Pours copper with an off white large foamy head. news is potent with candy, caramel, and very boozy. extremely hot beer was tons of booze and sweetness immediately on the front and a long sticky slightly hoppy finish. Did I mention this is a hot beer? This is taking big Belgians to the extreme but it’s still a decent beer.

Dark (25) - FRANCE - MAY 12, 2015
Robe ambrée limpide, pétillante surmontée d’une mousse crêmeuse légèrement fonçée. Goût franc, fort et vigoureux, arômes de fruits secs (pruneau, châtaigne, datte), alcool présent mais non envahissant. Plus une grosse ambrée dans l’esprit qu’une véritable "ABT", on est à des années-lumières d’une Rochefort 10 à mon sens. Pour une bière aussi puissante, on remarquera cette formidable atténuation, ce qui peut d’ailleurs la rendre très dangereuse ! On est clairement sur de la grosse artillerie, cette Samaranth remplacera donc tout digestif tant elle se montre chaleureuse et réconfortante, à savourer aux moments opportuns !

Pyobon (1060) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2015
(Bottle) Clear toffee brown with ruby highlights and good off-white head. Subtle and pleasant caramel aroma. Fantastic palate - slightly creamy, very slightly sticky, plenty of body with excellent carbonation that is both mouthfilling and bright. Excellent taste - the backbone is a rich pleasant caramel maltiness. There’s some subtle berry notes in the foretaste and some nice gentle pepper and spice in the finish, with some of the alcohol showing through. Great beer.

Cerveza cuadruple exquisita, con toques afrutados y dulces. Entra de lujo y tiene un olor que invita a beberla. Repetiré.
