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.

750 ml bottle picked up from Midtown Liquor in Tulsa. A reddish-bronze colored ale pours out with a very nice fluffy khaki head. There’s 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. Can’t say I pick up much apple or pear in the flavor; the fruit is more like what you’d find in a trail mix. It’s 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. It’s 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.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Thanks to Beerboy9960 for another fine Sooner beer! This one wasn’t quite on the level of some of the saisons but then again, maybe I’m 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.
