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.

Gorgeous golden pour, fluffy golden head...hits you in the nose with a little banana-cinnamonness....When itís the right temp, it goes down SOOOOOOO easy, like angelís tears. More malt, way less hop, but just ENOUGH hop that itís balanced...but yes, fellas, it goes down WAAAAAAY too easy...Go High Alcohol content! Best Belgian EVER. See, Oklahoma DOES have a few good things. I cannot wait until we can get the bottles in our store! Bring it, Coop!

Pours light orange with a frothy 1" head, which makes it slightly dark for the BGS style. Slight haze, which is normal for an unfiltered Belgian. The nose on this beer rocks - hints of bubble gum, reminiscent of a Tripel from the warm ferment temps. Decidedly warm from the alcohol, but at 10% youíd expect nothing less. Hints of light clove, spices, and vanilla roll around just behind the scenes, giving added complexity. The mouthfeel is medium to medium full which is unexpected, given the alcohol warmth. This beer is all about the yeast and all the esters a warmer fermentation temperature brings. Drinkability? Yes, Iíll have another, but donít step off the bar stool too quickly without checking to see where the floor is located - this could easily waylay you if youíre not careful. I like it! BREW!!!

Tried this one at Mcnellieís Tulsa. Golden Pour, Fruity, Excellent belgian aroma and flavor. Smooth drinking with hint of vanilla after taste. 10%ABV makes it quite a drink caught me off gaurd. Cannot wait for this to be bottled

Pours a cloudy orange color. Aroma of dried fruit, cinnamon and vanilla. Can taste the alcohol but not very strong. Hint of banana flavor, with a bigger fruity taste. Nice aftertaste of pit fruits and caramel. One of my favorite beers. Had my first at Bolero in Oklahoma City.

lumpsowers (287) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 28, 2009
Cloudy amber pour, low head, lots of lace. Piny alcohol aroma. Lots of alcohol softened by a thick fruity maltiness. Plenty of banana and vanilla, with a thick raisin/date flavor dominating. Not as bitter as I was expecting with a 10% ABV. More more like a quad or dubbel than a golden. Lightly carbed, nitrous tap? A superior brew, easily the best beer brewed in Oklahoma. Yum.

Draft at Tapwerks OKC. Nice deep brown-tinted bronze. Moderate lacing. The character is firmly in the cane sugar vein, but this is very drinkable and flat out enjoyable. I dare someone to blind taste test this and guess itís brewed in Oklahoma! Well done. (#4153, 6/30/2011)

Hbuck72 (177) - Chickasha, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 14, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2010 Pours a hazy orange/ amber color. Smells of sweet grains and malt. Taste is just what you expect from a Belgian Strong Ale, strong powerful flavor of grains, malt, and yeast. Very good beer. I must say that this is the first beer brewed in the state of Oklahoma that I actually will seek out to drink. I canít wait until they have it available in bottles, or just let me buy a keg of it.

milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 10, 2009
UPDATED: APR 28, 2010 Wow.....what a great Belgian Ale. Nice notes of banana and clove on the nose with some yeast present. Flavor is bursting with vanilla, banana and yeast, as well as malt. Mouthfeel is incredibly smooth due to the nitro tap. The alcohol is almost undetectable, and at 10% it makes fopr a dangerously delicious beer. A definite must try if youíre in the OKC area.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2009 Easily the best beer brewed in Oklahoma. Admittedly thatís not saying much, but this is a very welcome addition to what little beer scene the state has. Pours a clear golden color with a thin white head. Aroma is mild, with notes of yeast and banana. Flavor is stronger, with banana and vanilla sweetness and just a hint of clove spiciness. Smooth mouthfeel and surprisingly little alcohol burn given the ABV. A very, very solid entry from this new brewery.

On tap T Pepeís in Norman. Deep amber color with thin creme colored head. Light lacing. It smells of candied sugar, booze and spices. Nice yeast character. The flavor is right on for this Belgian. Delicious! Thank you Coop!
