Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: stephens101 on 04-16-2009

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a tulip glass. Hazy light copper color with medium head. Primary smell of roasted malt with a slight caramel undertone. Smooth malt taste on front with a very sweet ending consisting of caramel and vanilla before the bitter aftertaste. Light carbonation and medium for a Belgium ale, but the alcohol is well hidden. Although it does a wonderful job of having flavor rather than tasting like it's high ABV, it doesn't have the balance to fulfill the expectations I had. Very sweet and just short of syrupy. OK beer, but not good enough for me to crave a 2nd one in a setting.

750 mL bottle poured into a wine glass.

Appearance - Deep copper. Hazy with a big cream colored head.

Smell - Bananas and cloves. Deep caramel. Some fruitiness. Alcohol.

Taste - Tastes very nice up front. Banana and clove. Creamy deep caramel and a hint of chocolate. Finishes fruity. Licorice and spices. Fusel alcohol and slightly bitter.

Mouthfeel - Creamy and highly carbonated. Boozy and a little abrasive in the finish.

Overall - Tastes pretty good up front, but gets a little rough in the back.

Had this at mcNellies in tulsa

Pours a semi-hazed amber with a finger of cream colored head. Some head retention & lacing, lacing held up pretty good

S: Apple peels, breadyness, & orchard fruit

T: Apple peels, breadyness & booze presence up front, plus a touch of lemon hops. Caramel, a touch of breadyness & then boozey warmth once this warms, along with some candi sugar dryness. Finishes dry & boozey with caramel & pralines, would've pulled a 4.5 but hotness dragged this down a bit

MF: Chewy, near zero carbonation, very warming

Drank easy for the ABV, need to try this again when the temp drops by say 50 degrees or more, I bet this smacks the chill outta winter...

Served in a chilled shaker pint at Upper Crust in Edmond. Pours to a creamy beige head that is thin (poured too carefully?) but laces and lasts. Color is red amber and hazy. Aroma is sugary malt, plums, yeast esters such as clove, bubblegum, and other spices, brown sugar and alcohol. Flavor is rich and complex with a strong sweet port/marsala taste up front, with spicy funky Belgian flavors in the middle and a rich, sweet rumlike finish. Mouthfeel is medium and sugary in a good way. Overall a delicious, satisfying high gravity ale with complexity and polish, approaching world class.
