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.

On tap at Urban Family. I feared this one would be all novelty, but this is a complex, yet quite drinkable brew -- one of the more interesting ones I’ve had from DFH in a while. The first thing that comes to mind is a Latin American dessert -- cinnamon and chocolate, with some other baking spices in there as well. Cherry wasn’t more than a background flavor -- this was mostly roasted malts, toffee, chocolate and coffee. Fairly thin -- this certainly isn’t a palate bomb, and remains quite drinkable through a glass. Nice!

bottle. pours a clear brown with ruby highlights under a thin, filmy, beige head. i get a lot of fudge in the nose with some licorice-like spice note and lesser notes of chocolate covered dark fruits. flavor is nutty with chocolate and fudge. i suppose it’s the toasted amaranth that imparts that awesome nutty flavor that i’m really digging. this is great!

unclemattie (4267) - Georgia, USA - JUN 6, 2012
New DFH 750mL bottle. Vintage 2012. Dark brown color. Khaki, light tan foam. Sweet herbal aroma, nose of heather, spice, alcohol filled chocolates, chocolate covered cherries. Soft roasty flavors, some cola, coffee roast character, hints of chocolate essence , floral herb layer as it warms. Very complex, lots of layers (not in an ogre kinda way (well a good ogre)). By far, the best of the "off-centered" ingredient DFH brews so far!! Well done. Overall, herbal hodge-podge blended with an Abbey Dubbel. (3357)
