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.

This beer will always have a special meaning to me. I shared this beer with my girlfriend on our one year anniversary while dining at the Archer Ale House in Bellingham. It pours a pretty light brown color, completely clear with a nice thick and dense white head. A big aroma of bread yeast, fruits and spices sneak into my olphactory receptors. On first sip I notice a rather warming alcohol flavor that gave way to dates, fruits, yeasts and then finishing with a nice dry mouth feel. I might have to buy some and lay it down for more anniversaries with my girlfriend.

Bottle at Rilesters flat, cheers Steve, 22/10/14. Clear chestnut brown with a decent beige covering. Nose carries roasted tones, toffee, dark fruit notes, fruit cake, light booze fumes, treacle toffee. Taste comprises malt loaf, dark fruit rinds, spice, toffee, light cocoa rub. Full bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with sweet licks and warming alcohol. Solid Quad, doesn’t get too hot or cloying.

Alengrin (2331) - BELGIUM - OCT 27, 2014
Belgian-style barley wine with thin white head and deep coppery amber colour, hazy; rich bouquet as a good barley wine should have, sweet and candied, vinous, candied cherries, pepper, ginger, honey, liqueur, citrus peel, full, sweet, even sugary and spicy palate with long, dry, warming liqueurish and herbal finish. Great sipper and so far the best in this series I tasted.

TtV (112) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Deep brown, ruby coloured with a medium off white head that stays. Aroma is lovely. I recognized fruits, sugar, caramel and alcohol. The taste is beautiful with a lovely bouquet of sweetness, bitterness, alcohol and lots more. Brilliant beer. Probably best at a cold winter evening at the fireplace.

leghorn99 (24) - Livorno, ITALY - OCT 19, 2014
Ha un bel colore dorato-ambrato, schiuma fine, compatta e di buona persistenza. Al naso è il malto che domina, con sentori di caramello, fichi, zucchero di canna e alcool. In bocca si ha la conferma di quanto percepito al naso; malto, caramello, miele, fichi, note calde di alcool che lasciano asciutto il palato. Corpo pieno, carbonazione media; finale dolce ma con note di luppolo speziato, per dare un pò di equilibrio. Da bersi con un po’ di cautela durante le fredde serate invernali, vista la sua genersosa bevibilità, nonostante l’alto contenuto alcolico.

eduardovl (915) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle poured in a chalice. Well, I love Quads. Urthel makes it really well... A: Beautiful cloudy amber color with a huge beige head. Good retention. Many small bubbles around and also many lacings left around S: Very sweet and fruity. Plums and raisins are very relevant. Caramel malts, toffee and Belgian yeasts. Flowery hops. Negative point: Alcohol can be really felt in the end T: Great beer! Sweet-bitterness Belgium pleasure. The upfront is bitter and sweet. The end is molasses and bitter. Very fruity: Again plums and raisins are very relevant. Bready (brown bread). Delicious Belgian yeasts and hops M: Heavy body and medium carbonation. Molasses sensation and delicious hops bitterness D: Excellent Belgian QUAD! No regret... [ BA Review @ 11/4/2010 ]

guzgorog (312) - FRANCE - OCT 10, 2014
Brune cuivrée avec un beau col de mousse bulleuse qui laisse une belle dentelle sur le verre. Nez de fruits murs : prune et surtout calva. Bouche sur l’alcool, calva encore, fruits secs, noisettes, bois. Le corps est assez puissant, l’alcool aomni-présent. Manque de rondeur et de subtilité.

guiroul33 (93) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - OCT 10, 2014
Dark Amber color with a lot of deposit, minimal Head. Aroma of candies, cherry jam, liquor. Taste is quite sweet with notes of dried fruits, gingerbread, candied fruits. Full body, sweet aftertaste. A nice beer to end up a diner, a bit too sweet though.

Ruby brown with a good pale head. Aroma is raisins, brown sugar, dates, figs, prunes. Full bodied, complex on the palate with a leaning towards sweet, slightly boozy estery finish. Taste is raisins, brown sugar, dates, fig, candi sugar.
