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 - 750 ml) Deep ruby red pour with a thin tan head. Amazingly complex aroma. Fruit, nuts, hops, chocolate, caramel, toffee... and so many more that I couldn’t pin down at the start. Fruity at the start of the flavor with a lot of dry malts and then even more fruit sweetness and a light touch of yeast spice at the end. I kind of liked it in an odd sort of way.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap at Pinocchios in Media, PA. Amber pour with a white creamy head. Nut, chocolate, dark fruit, yeast, and some sweetness here. Quite good.

On tap @ Urban Family. Pours deep black with no head really. Aroma is yeasty chocolate malt. Tart Belgian yeast flavor, thin dark chocolate and green tea-like finish. Way more interesting than your average dubbel, but not worth the crazy Dogfish premium.

Bottle via SL.. Pours a murkey dark red/black color. Not what I was expecting. Decent little head, nothing to brag about. Nice aroma. Reminds me of chicory stout. I dont know WTF myrica, amaranth and some other ingrediants taste like but its a pretty smooth abbey dubbel. Kind of coffee, roasted malts taste. Big malt backbone.... I cant pick up any hops but its well balanced. Taste like a stout, but has a body of a dubbel. Very easy to drink for an 8 percenter....

5/31/12. 750mL bottle. Good ratings. This better be good, DFH, because I’m tired of your shit when it comes to these special release beers. Brown/amber/red pour with a nice creamy khaki head that sticks and laces decently. A nice combination of aromas that includes chocolate, grainy malts, fruity, yeast, and candy sugar. A better flavor that shows plenty of chocolate and nuttiness with undertones of grain and a bit of a green astringent aspect. There’s also a touch of light fruitiness, Belgian yeast, candy sugar, and a hint of coffee. Not bad, DFH.

Bottle - 750mL crowned. Dark mahogany pour with a tall, fizzy tan head that’s reduced to a short ring of foam within minutes. Aroma is dark fruit notes, soft chocolate , cocoa, toasted malt, and dusty yeast. Taste is chocolate covered fruit, dark fruit notes, powdery cocoa, dusty yeast, roasted malt, and light coffee notes. Body is medium with a full, bubbly carbonation. Finishes with more chocolate notes, sweet malt, cocoa, dark fruit and soft, dusty yeast. Nice!

A - Pours a dark mahogany-ruby color with a finger of frothy off-white head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some nice lace. S - Aroma is a mix of sweet dark fruits, honey, coffee, chocolate, pine, herbs, spices, and Belgian yeast. T - Starts off with a mix of sweet raisin and dark fruit with some Belgian yeast and spices with a touch of honey. Through the middle, some chocolate and coffee comes through alongside some pine and herbs. The finish is a mix of dark fruit, Belgian yeasts, earthy spices and herbs, and a bit of honey. M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet lightly spicy finish. D - Very drinkable. Lots of different flavors and ingredients, but the end result comes together really nicely.
