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.

I liked this as much as about any Dubbel. Pours dark purple with minimal head, some chocolate and a lot of dark fruit in the nose and palate. Body is relatively full and sweet, with some spice on top of the fruit. Finish is dry, but not overly so, still and little sweet, and satisfying.

Tap. Pours opaque with a small, fizzy light tan head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is dark chocolate, coffee, roast, and nutty malt, figs, prunes and cherries with light earthy hops. Flavor is dark and bitter malt, chocolate, prunes, wood and earthy hops with a dry finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

Chalsk (1104) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours a medium brown color with an off-white soapy head. Has a complex aroma. Chocolate, honey, caramel, roast, candi sugar and perhaps some grape notes. Sweet creamy roasty chocolate taste with a subtle bitter layer and sugary honey notes through the finish. Wow. Not a traditional double but this experiment works. A really good brew.

scottw86 (1172) - Maryland, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Poured a very cloudy/hazy brown color with a slight red color. Silky and large off-white head. Aroma is very earthy with seeds, roots, some sesame, and a touch of honey. Taste is very interesting, unlike anything Ive had before. Lots of seed flavors with some honey and other grain flavors. Very interesting, and I can tell there are a lot of weird ingredients. Some floral qualities as well. Alcohol is slightly noticeable. The finish is very nice with some good roasted flavors and some floral dry notes. Overall this is very good and unique.

750 ml bottle. Served in an Orval chalice, the beer pours a ruby red/brownish color with a half inch tan head that stays around a little while. Theres also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice and malty, it smells like nuts, chocolate, honey, caramel, and an earthy/herbal aroma that Im not exactly sure what it is. The brew tastes like nuts, dark fruit, milk and bittersweet chocolate, honey, roasted malt and and earthy/floral/tea like taste that I think is from the rooibos. Theres a good balance between the sweet and bitter flavors. Mouthfeel/body is medium, its a bit slick and creamy with a good amount of carbonation. I think this is a good overall brew, I liked it. $11.99 a bottle.

Dark. Stout nose. Thin, not thick consistency. Sweet but overly so like most Dogfish beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2012 From a 750 ml bottle. This beer pours a very dark brown/ black with off-white 2 finger head that dissipates quickly. In getting a huge coffee and chocolate note. Also getting a slight bread note from the yeast. Taste starts out semi-sweet and finishes a little dry. Overall an excellent and complex beer and an excellent take on a Belgian Dubbel . ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

streve (105) - Maryland, USA - MAY 14, 2012
750ml bottle. Pour was a dark brown with a small tan head with small carb bubbles. Aroma of coffee, cocoa, honey and caramel. This is a tasty one. I get a good stouty chocolate up front that splashed a touch of honey on the back end. Overall, its a pretty good beer. Not something I could drink a ton since its not my style though.

25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with clear edges and a creamy coating. Nose is raspberry, honey, coffee bean and cocoa. Coating medium body with a tang. Taste is chocolate, banana, currants, earth and brown sugar. Never tasted most of these special ingredients but work well with the dubbel base.
