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.

tfredvik (941) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2013
Clear, dark brown/reddish body with a frothy, quite short-lived, off-white head that reduces to a film. Fair lacing. Quite strong aroma: sweet, spicy and fruity. Also yeast, dried dark fruits and dusty hints. Moderate sweet taste that lasts into the moderate bitter and long-lasting finish. The flavours are very spicy! I get anise seeds in the aftertaste, but before the beer is swallowed I just get a strong mix of all sorts of spices and herbs. Cool! Also caramel and coffee and alcohol in the back. Very nice oily texture, very soft carbonation and close to full body, but the massive spice and herbs attack makes the mouthfeel a bit rough. Still a lovely brew!
[50 cl bottle, batch 623, enjoyed 6 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Online]

tmrmwel (756) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2012
Bottle, bryg 623. Pours dark, reddish brown, with a small creamy head. Aroma is nice and herby with cloves and anise, as well as caramel and kandi. Body is creamy, with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet with raisins and dark fruits, sweet coffee and chocolate and a nice and spicy hint of anise.

JanLaursen (2731) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2012
bottle, 50 cl. Hazy orange brown with quite some yeast floating and slowly diminishing beige head. Strong star anise aromas combined with notes if caramel, yeast coriander and fruity hops. Taste is sweet malty, strong anise, spices, yeast and a fairly generous hoppy bitter finish, balancing things out. Smooth - a perfect match with traditional Danish x-mas fare like mustard glaced ham with kale.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2012
Bottle. pours dark amber, with a moderate, lasting white head. Aroma is strong malt, with some noticeable spice to it (coriander, orange peel, and anise, perhaps?), and a whiff of alcohol. Flavor is rich caramel malts, again with some significant spicing, though it blends quite well (perhaps better than in the aroma, actually). Smooth mouthfeel. I quite like this.

espenra (840) - Kurland, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2011
50cl bottle from Vinmonpolet. Best before 2012-06-24. Batch 493. Poured a brown colour with a red hue and a huge foamy head that settled down fast. Aroma is sweet with notes of spices (anis and coriander) and malts. The belgian yeast is also present. Flavour is also spicy. The malts really come out and play around with the belgian yeast again as well as some sugar and syrup. Not as much spices in the flavour compared to the aroma which was a bit disappointing, but they are present. Mostly the anis. Hints of liqorice. A decent beer, but neither a good winter ale or a belgian strong ale. It’s just not a good mix of these two styles.
