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.

bhensonb (11275) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Capped 750 from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Fred’s the beer guy. Pours dark brown with a foamy/creamy/bubbly beige head. Aroma is floral and chocolate. Near full bodied. Flavor is chocolate and cherry. Clearly. Weird. Some dark malt, but for me this is chocolate and cherry. Lots of other things going on, but c&c dominates. It has dark malt, and the finish is less than dry, but it is quite delicious. DHB may have gone so complex that the flavors are indecipherable. But the taste is good.

Theydon_Bois (9280) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2012
Tap at the Royal Tavern, Philly - 26/05/12. Deep brown colour with a thin tan head. Roasted aroma, molasses, burnt sugar, Belgian yeast. Taste follows nose but with more dark fruits, quite sweet, not as roasty tasting and a little pepper and spice. Medium bodied and carbonation. Not a bad dubbel, could have been better balanced, can’t quite put my finger on it!?!
