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.

Rockspeny (15) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, - SEP 30, 2012
Has the deep mauve-red colour of a barley wine, smells like a barley wine. Wonderful rounded flavour of malt, caramel, fruitcake, hazelnuts, but all nicely balanced to make it very satisfying. A beer to savour.

Pyobon (1028) - 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.

lello4ever (204) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
Splendida quadrupel belga, colore arancio scuro bruno, schiuma poco persistente e non compatta, molto dolce all’olfatto e ovviamente anche al palato vista la gradazione. Sapore di malto, caramello, frutta nel tipico stile di queste birre d’abbazia. Eccellente, l’alcool si sente ma non limita la godibilità.

Reddish orange colour with creamy head. Aroma of caramel, raisins, citrus, dark fruits and hops. Flavour is the same with evident alcohol note, but at the same time is well hidden or discret.

Andy_ (887) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 29, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2015 330 ml bottle
Orangeish to reddish brown hazy beer with beige head leaving lacing. Aroma has alcohol, Belgian yeast, licorice, dark sugar and dark fruits. Flavor has licorice, alcohol, yeast and dark fruits. Palate is full and foamy. Finish has mild bitterness and alcohol. Aftertaste is liqueurish sweet with dark sugar, licorice, figs and yeast. At first this beer was way too boozy, but adding the sediment softened it and made it more enjoyable. Still quite straight-forward and too sweet.

Biere lourde au goût fort prononcé. On sent fort l’alcool. Goût de malt et de caramel. l’alcool est trop puissant.

Nicolas_M (78) - BELGIUM - MAR 17, 2015
Strong taste of alcohol, but it was expected from a beer of 11,5%. Not bad in the genre, but not my kind.

Ulysse (270) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 17, 2015
Citrus aroma. Strong alcohol in the mouth. Rather unbalanced in the way that it’s too strong and unrefined.
