COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Stjernebryg er brygget af seks forskellige typer malt, der giver det mørke øl en flot rødlig nuance. Øllet har kraftig fylde, og den store mængde restsukker giver en dejlig sødme, som vi har afbalanceret med en relativ stor mængde humle i forhold til, hvordan juleøl traditionelt brygges. Vi har skruet op for julestemningen med et strejf af stjerneanis og koriander.

Anvendelse Stjernebryg er yderst velegnet som ledsager til traditionel dansk julemad som and og gås, og går godt i spænd med Herslev Brændevin Stjerneanis og Herslev Brændevin Korn. Perfekt som dessertøl eller som afslutning på en hektisk juledag.

A nice sweet beer with lots of spices. Sweet, maybe too sweet for ½ a liter, but good in small doses. A truely christmasbeer!

turbothy (1127) - Bonn, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2006
Pours a dark brown with hardly any head. Heavily spiced aroma. Also quite unilaterally spiced flavour, almost too much to drink. Would be good to pour into a beef stew.

anders37 (17904) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2006
Draught @ Lord Nelson, Copenhagen. Pours a dark brown colour with a small tan head. Malty spicy aroma. Sweet malty spicy hoppy flavor. Malty finish with some spicy hints in the aftertaste.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 6, 2006
Courtesy of a fine Dane. <P> Body is dark opaque brown with a diminishing, bubbly yet somewhat creamy, thumb thick tan head. <P> The aroma holds sharp whiffs of dark fruit, cherry, prune, raisins and a touch of licorice for good measure. It smells both oily and dusty though which detracts from the fruit. <P> Cocoa, chocolate, light natural black licorice, stewed raisins and some mild mace like spice. Very nice. If the intensity were amped up a little more this could be special. Also get some slightly tart caramel malt and a faint hint of smokiness.

thebeertourist (4933) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2006
Draught at Lord Nelson, Copenhagen. Dark brown colour with a decent khaki head. Sharp berry aroma. Flavours combine chocolate and berries with a hint of smokiness and some spices towards the finish. Medium to full body. A complex Christmas brew.

Plovmand (6650) - Helsinge, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2006
Bottle. Typical Christmas Beer style color - brown. Nice aroma of anise and coriander and dark friuts. Taste is sweet and warm from the alcohol but with some kind of refreshing anise and coriander taste. Very nice one.

faroeviking (10286) - FAROE ISLANDS - NOV 17, 2006
Bottle. Hazy brownish colour. Bit creamy off-white long lasting head. Sweet aroma of some chocolate and fruits along with plenty of anise and coriander. The flavour has plenty of anise and coriander along with the malt. The aftertaste is long lasting with a good touch of sweetness. Very Christmasish indeed, almost too much.

pubbe (493) - Højbjerg, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2006
Draught at Horsens Beerfestival. Golden brown with light brown mostly diminishing head. Aroma offers plenty of maltiness and spices. Good mouthfeel and flavor dominated by more malt and spices. Average bittersweet finish. Well made but seems a little off.

Svesse (6476) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2006
(Draught at Ölbaren, Copenhagen) Dark brown/amber colour, hazy, with beige head. Fruity nose with notes of ginger biscuit, cardamom and balanced hints of malt in the background. Fruity taste with chocolate, marzipan and a nice bitterness in the spicy finish. Slightly wineous with some alcohol shining through. Overall a nice and well balanced brew.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2007 2007-11-01, draught at Lord Nelson, Copenhagen, 6-4-6-3-12=31
Beautiful brown color with red shades. Rather simple, falling in the English Strong Ale category, where the malt and caramel just try to get a bit above the surface, there is also a subtle spicy touch. Drinkable but quite plain.

Dark amber color. Some aroma of malt and caramel, with very light broth. Round malty and caramel taste, with a lot of candi sugar and light malt fruitness. Enjoyable.
