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.

750 ml bottle picked up from Midtown Liquor in Tulsa. A reddish-bronze colored ale pours out with a very nice fluffy khaki head. Thereís a fairly complex and interesting aroma to this consisting of ripe fruit; dates, apple, and pear, with Belgian yeast, clove, and cinnamon following. A rich malty flavor is accompanied by cinnamon and herbal spice, dried mixed fruit, and some yeasty notes. Canít say I pick up much apple or pear in the flavor; the fruit is more like what youíd find in a trail mix. Itís a little heavy in the body, yet glides along nicely with just a touch of alcohol sting. Even as it warms close to room temp it remains smooth for a 10% beer. This is good. Itís like a solid American Belgian strong with a little barleywine in there.

750 ml bottle shared by Bobby. The pour is light haze golden ruby with a small off white head. The aroma is caramel sweet malt, herbal medicinal yeast and a general spiciness. The taste is the caramel malt nicely integrated with the general yeast notes. Nice round flavor. The palate is medium to heavy bodied, low carbonation level and a mineral finish. Nice one, thanks for sharing Bobby.

Thanks to Beerboy9960 for another fine Sooner beer! This one wasnít quite on the level of some of the saisons but then again, maybe Iím just not feeling BSAs a whole lot these days. Oily, frothy dark copper pour with plenty of sticky lacing in the tulip. Aroma was sweet with hints of bitterness, palate was a bit waxy, traces of heat. Flavors were a bit nutty, and well hopped (if a bit faded), making this overall a pretty good dark strong.

750mL bottle with a 29mm cap into a tulip. Pours a light copper color with a good bit of visible carbonation and a single-finger off-white head. The head fades a bit quickly into a thin cap, and that has some good staying power. The nose brings some light pepper and fruit notes with a touch of pear. Faint spice in the background. The flavor is a bit more pungent, with some pretty-strong notes of red pear. Nice cream character to it as well, as the body is a bit chewy. Thatís unconventional for that style, but it somehow works here. Just a touch of alcohol through the finish. Overall, pretty good, but nothing that really took it to the next level. A bit too much malt, though the nice fruity notes make up for that.
