Urthel Samaranth has a thin, cream-colored head, a medium brown, murky appearance, and not much lacing left behind. The aroma is of rich, sweet, candied fruits, such as fig or dates. Lots of bread, as well. Taste is of sweet bread crust, spiced bread, fruits, fruit bread, some bitterness, and brandy notes. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Urthel Samaranth finishes between wet and dry, with a sure alcohol presence.

Pours brown with a large fading head.
Nose shows sweet caramel, solvent-like booze, brown sugar and treacle.
Sweet and boozy flavour. More brown sugar, booze and some bready malt.
A little harsh and boozy.

Hazy red/brown, rich head. Dark fruits, rum, candies. Very sweet and boozy, like Gulden Draak or La Trappe Quad. Nice dessert beer, but not on the same level with Rochefort, Westvleteren, Chimay or St. Bernardus strong dark ales.

Somewhat smooth but the alcohol is poorly masked. That being said it is a 11.5%

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. No readable freshness date.

A- Pours a reddish medium brown color with a 1/2 inch light tan head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the flass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Frothy, resilient lacing clings to the glass.

S- Usual dark fruit aroma of a quad with a bit of a metallic smell. Slightly sweet and slightly boozy.

T- Very smooth flavor of dark fruits including raisin, fig and plum. Somewhat sweet with the alcohol being very well concealed. Some vanilla tones are in there as well.

M- Somehow creamy and crisp at the same time. Medium carbonation and a fullish body.

O- A dangerously drinkable quad. Can easily hang with the best of the Trappist versions of the style. Very pleasantly surprised.

Urthel Samaranth - 11% ABV Quadrupel - Consumed November 25, 2014.

A: Dark ruby hue with one finger of beige foam and chunks of sediment in the body. Head and lace dissipate about halfway through. Just an okay look, not particularly enticing.

S: Red plum, doughy yeast, blueberry, pancake batter, black cherry, alcohol esters, pruney-grapey notes, cream, and a hint of pear. A very appealing nose.

T: Pruney-plummy flavours, blueberry, doughy yeastiness, estery alcohol, pear, and grape skin with some warmth going down. Light cocoa notes develop as the beer warms, with more dark fruit, ethanol, and pear on the cough. A tasty and nuanced quadrupel.

M: Full-bodied, creamy, medium-high and slightly prickly carbonation, long, drying and chalky finish with a little heat in the throat. Solid palate; probably the best aspect of this beer.

O: A flavourful and enjoyable sipper that falls short of classics like Rochefort 10, Westvleteren 12, and St. Bernardus Abt 12. Still a good quaff, though.
