Gorgeous golden pour, fluffy golden head...hits you in the nose with a little banana-cinnamonness....When it’s the right temp, it goes down SOOOOOOO easy, like angel’s tears. More malt, way less hop, but just ENOUGH hop that it’s 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! OldBoss (27) - Tuttle, Oklahoma, USA - APR 27, 2009
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% you’d 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, I’ll have another, but don’t step off the bar stool too quickly without checking to see where the floor is located - this could easily waylay you if you’re not careful. I like it! BREW!!!

Tried this one at Mcnellie’s 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 Lawsonciv (29) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 8, 2009
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. MetalNHopHead (2123) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - AUG 30, 2015
I’m not sure I’ve ever had a Belgian Strong Dark Ale from a can before. That’s just one of the things that makes DNR unique. Flavors are pretty damn complex. Fruit, spices, candy-like sweetness, and rich malts. Taste is smooth but you’ll definitely notice the 10% ABV. Interestingly, Cattle Decapitation’s "Do Not Resuscitate" played on my Pandora station at random while writing this review. The beer and metal stars are aligned, I guess.

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 it’s 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 can’t 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 you’re in the OKC area.

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.
