COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Belgian-style dark ale is the culmination of central and western European malts, Noble hops, candy sugar and a traditional Trappist yeast. Notes of dried fruit, cinnamon and vanilla make DNR a very complex experience to be enjoyed in moderation.

Keg @ Andolini’s. Deep amber with a tight white head. Nose full if big fruity Belgian esters. Drying paint. Baked red apple. Taste is sickly sweet bruised forest fruits and mashed banana smoothie. Hot and slick. Quite malty. Very sugary. Full body, slick. Not my thing.

Pours a nice cloudy darker orange almost brown with off-white head. Sugar sweet, dark fruit, and spice on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes sweet.

Draft - Apricot and candy sugar. Cloudy orange with a rich beige head. Sweet apricots and sugars. Too sweet and fruity for me.

Beachmaster (124) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 26, 2014
Bomber into a tulip glass. Pours a clear light brown, with a medium tan head which quickly fades, leaving minimal lacing. Nose is caramel and dark fruit. Taste is dark fruit with some malty sweetness and the typical Belgian yeast clove notes. Finish is surprisingly dry for the style. Overall, a pretty good interpretation of the Belgian strong ale style.

Rating from notes, drank 19 Apr 2013 -- On tap at Tapwerks, OKC. I love the artwork for this beer. Pretty good Belgian. Would like to try again.

MartzMimic (84) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 15, 2014
On tap. Deep amber with a bit of foam. Decent lacing. Malty aroma with bread and a bit of fruit. A bit too cold, so the taste is muted. The malt carries through with vanilla and caramel. A bit more fruit comes through as it warms. The alcohol isn’t as evident as I would have expected. Nice heavy mouth. This is a really nice Belgian. Very balanced.

BelgianBeerGal (3191) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Traded bottle, possibly from summer secret Santa ’13. Pours a very bubbly dark brown color with a medium off-white head. Pretty typical aroma of strong malt, a hint of sweetness and Belgian yeast. Flavor is spot on for the style with just a hint of the 10 ABV. Very well crafted to fit the category.

RobertDale (3458) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUL 27, 2013
750 ml. bottle. Pours a dark golden orange with a small biege head. Aroma of malt, fruit, caramel, and alcohol. Taste is malt, dark fruit, yeast, caramel, spice, and alcohol. Nice.

burg326 (3699) - Florida, USA - APR 21, 2013
Bottle shared, poured a hazy amber orange color with aromas of light fruit, sweet sugar, and some yeast. Flavors follow suit, decent Belgium ale overall, thanks to the person who brought this one.

On tap. Pours a rich dark amber/copper with very little head or lacing. Nose is yeasty with some alcohol. Fizzy mouthfeel. Nice boozy burn with a sweet, yeasty finish. Hides the 10% pretty well. Another nice effort from Coop.
