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.

Definitely my favorite so far. Sweet and thick but still has the kind of kick I like. The subtle banana favors blend amazingly.

Yummy! This Belgian style high alcohol volume beer is on top of my list. The flavor is full like caramel and aroma is very pleasant. It's pour is beautiful and it's lacy! It's not a beer for those that detect the high alcohol volume. I love it and recommend it on tap!

Very nice beer. Great color, smell and taste. Full flavored for sure. Alcohol hidden nicely for a 10% beer. Very well done! Coop ale works nailed it on this one. Their naitave amber is amazing as well! Highly recomend....try the F5 IPA also. All around a nice brewery. DNR is compariable to the true belgium beers.

Thank you COOP

GLASS: Pint Glass
TEMP: Served @ approx 38 degrees, let it sit for about 20 minutes to warm closer to room temp
LOCATION: McNellies in Tulsa

Pours a hazy orange color with a golden brown tint. This makes it a bit on the dark side, for a golden ale style. One-finger head of creamy white foam which has a slight orange tint. Retention is quite nice and lacing is good.

Comes with the expected BGA nose. Nice citrus notes. Orange and lemon, mostly. Good spice presence of corriander and a nice hint of cloves. There is a very good yeasty presence and a slight touch of wheat notes.

The taste certainly follows the nose, but expands on it, also. There is a presence of big yeastiness. Underlying wheat presence. Nice citrus presence, like the nose, but it brings along other fruits with it. Pears, white grapes and a touch of apricots. It has a good sweet malt presence and a wonderfully delicious presence of candi sugars.

This one is medium-full in body, almost full-bodied, I'm happy to say. It has an almost perfect level of carbonation. Very smooth and deliciously creamy.

This is a very drinkable brew, flavor-wise. The 10%ABV, while not totally hidden, is nicely masked. Be careful when drinking this one, it's not a session beer, despite it's ease of drinkability. That alcohol will sneak up on you, in a hurry. This is a great one for relaxing with, at the end of a long day.

I'm stunned that this is a locally brewed Oklahoma beer. This is a truly tasty brew.
Between Coop, Marshall, Choc, and a couple of other breweries that should be popping up soon, there truly may be hope for OK's beer future.

Brand new from the recently established COOP Ale Works, and the "biggest beer brewed in Oklahoma." I tried this at Mcnellie's pub in OKC a few weeks ago, and it was served in a pint glass. At that time I appreciated the beer, and there was no doubt it was a good beer, but it wasn't until last night when I requested it in a snifter did it's aromas and flavors truly reveal themselves.

Color is a bright, slightly hazy orange and there's a nice off-white covering of dense froth. A few long lines of lacing exist and stick around for the duration. Vanilla, light fruits (pears, oranges, grapes) and spicy aromas waft to the nose. Tastes of big sweet malts which surround more spices, toffee and sweet bread. There's a quick hint of graininess toward the end. The alcohol heat is noticeable, but not overwhelming, and it in no way detracts from the other elements and the overall experience. Mouth-feel is medium plus, and it goes down smooth and a bit more creamy than expected, hovering close to tripel territory in that sense.

I'm not going to deny that I have some local bias on this one, but I feel it's an excellent example of the style, and I'm really looking forward to another bigger brew from these guys, as this one turns out to be a great initial move that should put them on the craft beer map.
