Urkontinent is a very interesting collaboration between Dogfish Head and some of the biggest technology geeks in the world. They were asked what ingredients they thought would be interesting to see in a beer. DFH received 100’s of suggestions and it all came down to these:
- Wattleseed from Australia imparts chocolate, coffee and hazelnut notes 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.
- Hiveplex Honey from California adds a subtle sweetness while maintaining the dry finish.
