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.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Served on draft at the Falls Church Alehouse. Would have been nice if they’d warned me this 7 ounce pour was over $8. Pours a clear dark red color with no head. Aroma of toffee, chocolate, herbal and nutty notes. The taste is herbal notes, toffee, honey, nuts, stone fruits, and bitter hops. Medium-full bodied with a slight bit of booze. Very nice beer.
