Belgian Strong Dark Ale |  10.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/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.

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.

Poured from the bottle into a goblet.

Appearance: Pours a ruby red/amber with just a hint of off white head that goes away immediately.

Smell: Sweet and malty with some alcohol and fruity notes. The malt has a touch of caramel smell to it.

Taste: Right off the bat I thought this tasted more like a glass of wine than a beer. The alcohol and fruity notes combine with a mild bitterness and remind me of a red. There is some Belgian yeast spice in the mix as well, but the fruity and slightly sweet notes win.

Mouthfeel: The body is just on the thick side of medium with hardly any carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: I'm not sure what the style of this should be, but it's not very pale and tastes like wine. Quite weird.
