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.

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]

Draft at crunchy's. Dark copper with a small head. Tons of competing aromas and flavors of honey and dark fruits and sugars. I was left thinking I liked it.

Mild and subtle red berry fruits. Spicy bubblegum and banana ester. Subtle nuts. A fairly dry finish. Unusual complex beer, tasty.

neuromatt (1097) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2013
On tap at the brew pub in Rehoboth Beach, served in a tasting glass. Pours hazy chestnut with a minimal tan froth and no proper head. On the nose are roasted malts with molasses, herbs and hints of coffee and perhaps chocolate. The flavour is moderately sweet throughout, with roasty notes from the nose. It evolves with complex earthy, herby and spicy notes and closes with a long, complex herby-hoppy finish. On the palate, it is medium in body with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice, complex dark Belgian-style ale. A complex brew that puts diverse ingredients to good use. 2012-06-08

A - pours dark mahogany. Low very quickly dissipating. S - grains, honey and dark fruits on the nose. Some brown sugar, molasses and mustiness in the middle. Vegetal and coffee ground notes on the end as well. M - high carb, a little lighter than expected. Lingering sweeter finish. Light Medium body. T - grains and dark fruits once again make an appearance in the front. Smoke, cola (Dr. Pepper when cooler), mineral water, molasses, brown sugar, faint prunes and fruit flavored tea. Coffee grounds on the end. Basically many shades and flavors of brown. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OmegaX (1207) - Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2013
This beer had tons of flavors going on. Aromas of cherry, honey, sweet fruits, raisin, chocolate, and light roast. Poured pretty dark with an off-white head. Flavor was intense, with a good dose of honey, sweet fruits, candied fruits, chocolate, cherries, prunes, figs, nuts, and roast. Crazy complex but almost overpowering in my opinion. Very good though.
