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.

Chocolate malts up front, with a slight coffee backbone. Another win for the boys at DFH.

Pours out Cola brown with a little ruby red highlights topped with a sand head. Nose is pit fruit some yeast bread malts and spice. Taste is more of the pit fruit sweetness a bit of spice.

On tap at Capone’s. Poured a near black with a small sized off white. Roastiness dominates with some chocolate. Lots of roast and burnt malts.

This beer is in my top 5. It’s amazing. It’s refreshing, tasteful, and everything a beer should hope to be. It’s impossible to find but worth the quest.

Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ.

Pours a dark chestnut brown color that’s completely opaque with purplish/plum hues and a one finger beige head that slowly settles into a thin ring. Sporadic splotches of lace left behind.

Surprisingly roasty aroma forthe style with a bit of toast, dark chocolate, caramel and coffee bean. This is not overwhelming, however, with subtle earthy hops and a good bit of estery dark fruit notes, notably grape and dark cherry.

Medium bodied and again, has a bit more roast than expected. The experimental ingredients give complexity to a style that can become boring adding a nice balance to the alcohol sweetness and estery dark fruit flavors. Hints of dark chocolate, toffee, oatmeal and subtle coffee bean flavor followed by alcohol, plum, raisin and dark cherry. Kind of like a roasted dark chocolate covered cherry. There’s also some subtle hop bitterness and well masked ABV making this complex beer very easy to drink. Nice experimental beer from dfh for a change.

This pilsner is so interesting with bits of chocolate and candy. You can grab the hint of coffee and this taste is a treat in the fall.

Bottle @ ZZTX. Dark amber color.
Nutty, caramelly aroma with a hint of roast. Malty sweet flavor, caramelly and nutty. Some dried figs.

caesar (7332) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle @ ZZT X, small sample, thanks all for sharing! Slight hazy light brown color, short head. Aroma of spicy yeast, bit caramel and chocolate, bit earthy hop. Quite bitter for an abbey dubbel, slight sweet, malty. USA take on an abbey dubbel.

Benzai (16764) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle @ ZZT X shared by MrHangover. Lightly unclear red brown color with a dark red glare coming through. Smell and taste sweetish, lightly malts, raisins, mint. Decent body and carbonation. Hmm not a lot to tell about this one. It’s ok I’d say.

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2014
