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.

Bricks (1091) - Delaware, USA - OCT 29, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2011 Aroma is heavily of grape. Great head on this one. Tastes sweet with LOADS of artificial grape. The alcohol is pretty present. This would make a great shot, or great beer in limited quantities. Drinkability is near zero.

Zarrach76 (216) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAR 19, 2017
Superbe robe cuivre avec des reflets de feu rubis/orang et une non moins superbe mousse dense lgrement dore pour cet exemplaire jeune (date limite dcembre 2019, il y a de la marge !). Trs sduisant et apptissant ! Le nez est une belle promesse : alcool enivrant, malts capiteux avec leurs dcharges de caramel, de miel, de sirop drable, de pain dpices, de mlasse et de chocolat au lait, les arachides avec la noisette voir la cacahute (qui rappelle avec les notes de chocolat une certaine pate tartiner bien connue...), et les fruits avec de grosses notes de fraise, de banane, dananas, de gele de coin, de figue bien mre, de myrtille, de framboise, de cassis, dabricot, de pche de vigne, de mandarine, de citron vert, de pomelo, de raisin sec, de pruneau... Aucun doute, des armes dignes dune trs grande Quadrupel. En bouche, belle grosse claque... Alcool au top niveau, 11.5% bien emballs et pess, carbonatation plutt logieuse pour des Abt/Quad dhabitude moins vives, texture souple et riche, vineuse et liquoreuse bien entendu cela va de soi et amertume faible ce qui nest pas une surprise vu lemprise de lalcool et des saveurs malts et fruits. On dcle un petit ct bire au beurre huileux extrmement agrable qui ajoute de la rondeur tout en lgret, les saveurs et armes boiss et rsineux arrivent aprs coup en trainent magnifiquement en longueur. Les saveurs de malts quant elles persistent tout au long de la dgustation et sont tout simplement magnifiques, sur le caramel, la pomme cuite et le chocolat au lait. Le final est doux, tourdissant, il enveloppe la bouche de manire suave tout en laissant planer des petites pointes dpices (poivre, cannelle, vanille...) pour notre plus grand plaisir. La levure est quant elle dune grande finesse, bien droite dans ses bottes. Rien redire, cette Urthel Samaranth na rien envier aux autres grandes Abt/Quad Belges. Un rgal absolu. Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.

T: rich malty, honey, citrus, vinous, fruity, candy sugar, hint of woody, raisins, syrupy mouthfeel but not disturbing sweetness is there, something like herbal but overall very nice balanced beer for this style, I like it, full body and obviously lower carbonation, 0,33l bottle from Bierhalle Deconinck.

VueltaBirrista (94) - Murcia, SPAIN - DEC 23, 2016
Ambar casi marrn, espuma poco cremosa de color beige que acompaa todo el trayecto en copa. Aromas a caramelo tostado y frutas maduras, incluso pasas. En boca se muestra dulce y muy licorosa. Sus impresionantes 11,5 estn ah, no quieren engaar a nadie. Azcar moreno, fruta muy madura: melocotn, cereza Tenemos tambin la presencia del cereal y como he dicho antes su carga alcohlica que puede llegar a ser muy traicionera y hacer que al da siguiente necesites dos cajas de Ibuprofeno para el dolor de cabeza. Advertidos estis.
