COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
URKontinent is brewed in the style of a Belgian Dubbel. It begins with Pilsner, Munich and Chocolate Malts and Belgian Dark Candi syrup. Then we add unique ingredients from around the world. Wattleseed from Australia imparts a chocolate, coffee, and hazelnut taste to the beer. Toasted Amaranth from South America gives it an earthy, grainy flavor and a little additional roast flavor. Green Rooibos from Africa contributes a floral aroma and slight astringency. Myrica Gale from Europe supplements the bitterness from minimal hopping. Hive Plex Honey from California adds a subtle sweetness while maintaining the dry finish.The careful combination of all these ingredients creates a complex dark Belgian style ale with wonderful coffee and chocolate covered cherry flavors. The roastiness of the malt and wattleseed melds with the fruity esters from the yeast, the floral notes from the rooibos, and the malty yet dry signature of a Belgian Dubbel. Perfect to enjoy with friends as the weather begins to cool.

Bottle @ ZZT X, courtesy of me. Pours a clear reddish brown beer with a quickly disappearing off white head on top. Aroma of chocolate, toffee, malts and caramel. Flavor has a light sweet touch to it, light caramel and has this flat mouthfeel. There is a big chocolate and nutty presence in this beer. Interesting stuff here.. I like it.

"DFHs description says dubbel, but this seems more like a belgianesque porter to me. Pretty nice brew. Belgian yeasty spice is there, but subtle...some fruitiness, and lots of dry roast. Finishes dry too. Feel is nice. Gladly, the honey is slight as well and not overdone. Nice job!"
