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.

Extremely sweet. Odd after taste. Almost no carbonation.

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.

750ml into a tulip. Pours a ruddy deep amber, mid tone between a strong dark and pale. Towering off white head with an encouraging pour slow to recede leaving nice trailing lace, looks like a dairy product.

Aroma is quintessential belgian, wonderful complexity, spicy floral upbeat.

Flavor does not share the complexity, bland within a narrow range. Aftertaste is fully phenolic with a hint of zinc, not a strength, ends with a minor rough bitter. While not hot, the alcohol is pronounced. Medium to full bodied mouthfeel.

New on tap at Louies Brookhaven Norman
Second time drinking DNR, first was may 2009.

Presented with a two finger white head.
Deep copper color with appropriately low carbonation. Aroma of fruit, especially apples, and alcohol are overly dominate. Taste brings forward the taste of the apples, tangerines, and slight tart pineapple. Slow sipper. I would recommend the other coop styles, but i would gladly pass on this again.
