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.

One of the brewery’s better beers but average for the style. Fruity malt aroma with alcohol. Nice deep brown and amber color with a small head. The palate was light and smooth. The taste was true to style with Belgian yeast, fruit flavored malt with a hint of banana. Alcoholic and slightly tart finish. Also a little dry.

Lukaduke (2312) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Pours a medium to deep copper color with a finger of eggshell foam. Nose is sweet with lots of belgian candi sugar, hint of vinous fruit and spicy vanilla extract. Palate follows witha creamy mouthfeel and a nice balance of sweet burnt sugar and some grassy bitter hops. Malt profile is toasty with some vanilla cream soda layers adding to the complexity along with a hint of booze and peppery esters in the late palate.

Atom (1403) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2014
12oz can pours an amber/brown with a thin off-white head. Sweet aroma of dark malt, candi sugar, and Belgian yeast. Alcohol kinda over powers everything here, dark malts, light orange, dried fruits, yeast. Nope.

12 oz Can. Tasted on 10/11/14. Beer From Moore Liquor. The beer had an overly sweet aroma & taste to me. I'm not a huge fan of this type of beer but this was still a pretty. Ice beer. Needs some aging to mellow the sweetness. Will try again in a year to see. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz glass on tap. Honey color, no lacing, average head. Strong aroma, pleasant, taste has a very full flavor, really quite good, impressive warmth and character, some alcohol present. Very good, highly recommended.

begian golden ale on the back of the label? juuuuuust a bit outside. this golden pours darker than most dubbels and some BSAs. No complaints here, just not what i was expecting. In all facets reminded meof Monks Blood, with cinnomon and vanilla, and a backdrop of belgian yeasty spiciness being the main players. very enjoyable brew. thanks Hannah!"

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 (163) - 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.
