The old recipe from Red Star comes back as good as ever. Easy to drink, malty and smooth.
Medium brown with a thin tan head. Nice malty flavors with slight fruitiness along with the roasted/toasted flavor. ryanscourt (1483) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2014
Dark brown, more than most dunkers i have had. Fairly toasty. Crisp finish. A little bit of a burnt finish. Not bad. Drake (13954) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 2, 2013

OK, so balderdash, I am the 4th ratebeerian to rate this, its an honor because this is the best beer on tap I had at bocktown monacac tonight. Nice head. A darker beer inthe glass. Has a friendly roasty aroma, very mouth watering. Taste is fairly mild and mildly roasty, just like a nice dunkel should be. Yes a darker beer with a tad of hay in there. fairly mild and enjoyable fer sure. Creamy attitude, quite easy to get along with. Background flavor make me think about the the smell of old horse or cow manure while hangen out onthe farm. Overall best experience at bocktown monaca tonight. should try this stuff and you should try out bocktown monaca. boto (2250) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Growler from Brewery: This one pours a ruby tinged, clear brown color. There was a small tan head on it that left a little lacing. The aroma is nice. Caramel malts, a hint of sourness, some fruits. Hints of roastiness also. The taste is also quite good. Slightly sweet caramel malts with a faint sourness in the finish. Some fruits also. Very smooth and easy drinking. The brewer told me this is essentially the same beer he brewed at the old Red Star under the same name. That’s a good thing, since I used to enjoy it in my trips to the area. Glad to have it back!

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2014 Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a very dark brown - almost black - with a small beige head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was sweetish and toasty with a light sour caramel presence and a bit of wood. The flavor was malty and a touch roasty with nutty and woody notes and a bock like sour caramel presence. Fairly long finish dominated by nut and caramel with a touch of cocoa underneath. Fairly full bodied and smooth. Interesting.
