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.

Dark brown pour with creamy tan head and lace. Aroma is brown sugar and rock candi. Flavor is sweet brown sugar on the front. Sweet chocolate and a hinto coffee. Light medium bitter finish. Lingering after taste of sweet maltiness.

A very dark-ruby red with a off-white head. The nose is strong with wild sugars and floral notes. The taste is very complex and multi-layered. The candied sugar is difficult to relate to other things. Again Dogfish has struck me with awe and I love it.

JDBaker11058 (1131) - Maryland, USA - APR 4, 2013
Appearance: very dark brown with reddish highlights, a half-finger of tan head, and minimal lacing. Aroma: smells like a dubbel mixed with a roasty coffee stout. Taste: tastes like a belgian dark strong ale with stout-like roast and the herbal character of an old ale or gruit. Finish: lingering dubbel sweetness with a bit of herbal astringency. Notes: Very interesting concept and a solid, but not exceptional execution. Glad I tried it, and I continue to appreciate DFH’s use of interesting ingredients.

Fairly well made dubbel here. Dont know whats so ancient unique or crazy about this. Its just your ol’ run of the mill dubbel with no real flaws. Nutty, spicy and chocolatey.

Interesting looking. Pours hazy copper/brownish hue, reddish and ruby on edges. Looks... inviting? Enticing? Looks GOOD. Smells vaguely honey-ish. Tastes GREAT. Lots of interesting flavors that my blunt palate is floored and confused by. Sweet finish. Must... buy... more!

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Lots of sweet malt and tropical fruit. A little jumbled. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is becks dark but toastier, taste is toasted nutty Belgian becks dark with a touch of cherry, and a floral whiff, finishes tootsie roll laced with cherry caramel notes. if you remember Pete’s wicked ale from early mid nineties, there’s some notion of that sans hops. Edit: I really criticize dogfish head BC or price. Burton baton and 90 are phenomenal. I like the idea for a lot of DF beers, but I like beer more. Their beers are delicious, their ideas are genious, the two dont always meet up. This time they kinda did too well. Wish this wasn’t so balanced.can also be described as a session ale you can’t session, and an exotically flavored ale with too many overtones of simplicity. "Smuttynose brown dog ale on acid"

Boliv (1148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2013
750mL bottle, bottled in 2012B, opened on the last night in my 1st house. Pours dark red, orange, and brown; small foamy beige head. Aromas of esters upfront, with banana and clove. Oats and roasty malt are present, with molasses, honey, clover, raisin, and some burnt toffee and coffee. Cocoa, chocolate, and nuts in the periphery. The flavor is cocoa and gourd first, with, spices and chocolate; this moves to cocoa and fudge, honey and vanilla, and a lingering cocoa finish, with an espresso aftertaste. Low/medium carbonation, slightly warming. Really nice; earthy and rustic. [1138]
