The long-awaited and much-anticipated release of COOP DNR in 750 ml bottles should happen as early as today, COOP reports. The beer has already been picked up by distributors, so it should appear on store shelves at any time.
DNR is a Belgian-style golden ale that checks in at 10 percent ABV. It’s pretty serious about kicking your butt.
Here’s a brief description from COOP:
DNR begins with central and western European malts that are skillfully blended with Noble hops from northern Germany. DNR provides flavor and aroma that is big in every way. Notes of dried fruit, cinnamon and vanilla make DNR a very complex experience to be enjoyed in moderation.
COOP reports there will be about 1,800 bottles available.
