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.

DiarmaidBHK (4189) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. Pours brown with a thin khaki head. Nice aromatics on the nose. Definitely malt on the tongue but also other awesome herbs and spices mixed in. This stuff is fucking fantastic.

weihenweizen (3132) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle poured into a tulip. Pours dark brown with big light brown head. Aroma is sweet and roasty. Taste is chocolate, dark belgian sugar, some earthy, some coffee, hint of honey, and hazelnut. Really complex and not that hard to drink. Good dubbel that is also part chocolate stout and part nut brown ale. Becomes more dubbel as it warms and less nut brown ale & chocolate stout.

Bottled 750. Nose is sweet with plenty of rich roast and underlying chocolate, there’s some frozen syrup / candi / molasses for complexity, mild plums, roasted seeds. A really vibrant earthy/grainy feel! Even some sweet malted milk balls. Noisy pour, deepest dark ruby with a frothing tan head. In the mouth, malted milk toward the front and various roastings pushed way to the back, lots more cherry and red berry, light black currants and mineral strokes. Faintest of herbal qualities, somewhat indistinct; very low bitterness and medium sweetness. Medium body yields gentle slow warming and a gorgeous velvety malty feel. I love reading off the special ingredients used, as they’re among my favorite ’occasionals’ in the kitchen; here they go utterly unnoticed in the mouth (though may contribute to some of the roasty aromatics) and prove the gimmick unnecessary -- this is nothing more than a really good dubbel!

decaturstevo (5784) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2013
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.

redpooba (404) - Texas, USA - APR 25, 2013
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 (1935) - 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.

Reynolds314 (3315) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 29, 2013
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.

BrooHa (121) - New York, USA - MAR 28, 2013
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!

750ml bottle. Pours a dark brown with small tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, Belgian yeast, chocolate, roasted malt, and earthyness. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, Belgian yeast, some cherry notes, spice, and some nutty flavors.
