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.

phfyysik (704) - Tartu, ESTONIA - SEP 25, 2016
Pours dark red/light brown with light off-white head. Aroma is berries, alcohol, caramel, rum, toffee, dust, grapes. Taste is quite same, dust jumps into the nose. Like a nice rum in the end of the day.

Kita (1896) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 24, 2016
Bottle, 0.33l. Cloudy dark brown color with thick creamy tan-like head, lots of residue and sparkling appearance. Aroma of yeast, dried fruit, caramel and wood. Taste starts with medium sweet toasted malt and burnt sugar, follows by dried fruit and yeast, but without any acidity, mouthfeel is spicy, warming and medicinal, while finish is mild bitter. Full body, thick texture and lively carbonation in palate. Strong as hell...

mateuszk (2022) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown, huge beige head. Aroma of dark fruits, nuts, molasses and alcohol. I taste malty, fruity with lots of alcohol. Medium body, high carbonation, alcoholic bitterness in finish. Way too alcoholic.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2016 En bouteille de 33 cl. Belle couleur cuivrée légčrement trouble. Mousse tombant trčs vite. Joli nez de fruits (prune), caramel et sucre candi. Bouche de fruits : prune, raisin, alcool trčs présent. Arričre-bouche assez limitée, piquante (alcool ?) ! Bonne mais pas assez équilibrée (alcool) et dangereuse ... Re-rating : impressions aprčs la dégustation : négative 3,5 --> 3

Zlotta (2154) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 2, 2016
0.33 l bottle from ’Slijterij Cevelum’ (Cuijk), bottled in September 2014 (two years old). Clear, dark mahogany with a medium large, slightly creamy, almost stable, off-white head. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity and a little yeasty aroma of prunes, raisins, caramel, some chocolate and a slight hint of clove. Rather sweet, malty, a bit fruity and slightly yeasty taste of prunes, raisins, dried figs, caramel, some chocolate and a touch of licorice, followed by a long, slightly bitter, a bit roasty and rather warming-alcoholic finish. Medium body, rather effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Solid Quad, not overly complex or sophisticated, but quite intense, at least in the finish, and very satisfying. I like it, although the alcohol is clearly detectable.

Night_Cap (116) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - AUG 25, 2016
Bottle 330ml (2015) – cellared for 1 year. Served at room temperature. Pours a hazy copper. Head is small, off white and mostly lasting. Aroma is sweet and complex with notes of plum brandy; lighted toasted spiced fruit loaf, dried figs, brandy stewed apples, Belgian candy sugar, golden syrup, cinnamon, dark rum chocolate (light) and wood. Flavour is vinous with a very light bitterness; dark plums (strong), dark cherries (strong), ruby port (strong), toffee sauce, dark, cherry chocolate, fruitcake spices, lightly toasted brown bread and light notes of dried leaves and wood in the finish. Full bodied with soft carbonation, a thick texture and a superb length finish. ABV is VERY well hidden!

Fules (791) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 28, 2016
Monumentális, hosszan tartó hab, félbarna szín. Malátás, belga ales illat. Nagyon édes, karamelles, quadrupeles ízvilág, enyhe keserűvel és némi gyümölcs, valamint fűszeres aromákkal. Testes, nehéz sör, az alkoholtartalmát is csak félig-meddig sikerült elrejteni. Utóíze enyhén kesernyés és édes.

zarguon (15) - FINLAND - JUL 21, 2016
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.
