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.

12 oz. can. Pours clear amber with a small fizzy beige head that lasted a gran total of about three seconds. Nose is dark fruits, malt, yeast, and spice. Taste is plum, more dark fruits, malt, fruit, spice, yeast, and alcohol. Carbonation is strong. Warming finish. Pretty good.

Got it in the CAN, 4 for the price of a really good 6 pack. Dark amber, small fast fading head, and smells like prunes. Taste is right off like some sort of plum, fig thing followed by maltiness, and a muddled combo of flavors. Too much going on with this brew to really be enjoyable. It's not undrinkable and I do plan to down all 4 of these tonight but it is just overly complicated and not worth the higher price tag.

ttoadee (1608) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 17, 2017
Clear amber pour, disappearing tan head. Nose is brown sugar, malt, bananas, alcohol. Middle shows spice, bananas, carmelized malt, alcohol. Finish is bittersweet and oily on the tongue, shows a touch of chocolate. Not sure what style this is, alcohol a little too high in the profile.

3.4
Andrew196 (2014) - Katy, Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2017
Pours an amber copper color, cloudy. Aroma is dark dried fruit, earthy spice, yeast. Medium bodied, raisin/prune, clove, dark cherry and some spice. Pretty average for the style.

A taster. And just the beginning. A very nice start as I am a sucker for Belgiums.

Clareeses (175) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 14, 2017
On draft at Hop Cat. Very odd aroma - almost plant-like mushroom umami. Pours clear amber. Not very carbonated but it feels like more with the kick of heat. Bitter hot pepper initially, has a very savory finish. This doesn’t end up scoring super high for me, but it is definitely unique and worth trying.

kathouse (1940) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JAN 19, 2017
On tap at RePUBlic. This is a very nice beer. Copper in color with a frothy head. Aroma of cinnamon, candied sugar, and fruit. The flavors are very nice with the yeast spice complimenting the malts sweetness. Finishes very sweet which is the only real knock I have for this.

3.8
bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - DEC 1, 2016
Can. Copper beer with a dark cream head. Yeast and spice aroma with light fruity esters. Yeast and spice flavor with fruity esters. Medium bodied. Yeast and spice lingers with fruity esters.
