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.

OleR (4801) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2010
0.5L bottle from Vinmonopolet. Low sand-colored head. Hazed, dark ruby colored body. Inviting Belgo-yeast on the nose, along with tones of English licorice and dried dark fruits. Also a scent of aniseed, fortunately not overdone. Spiced and light sweet malt flavor. Some burnt sugar, some light roast, and a hint of dried dark fruits. Bitterness for balancing. Medium full. Alcohol is well masked. Spiced malt finish. Not top end Belgian style dark strong, but solid and reliable.

Rune (7995) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2010
300ml, draught, guest ale at BrewPub København. Huge, off-white head that stays quite well. Near-clear, mahogany coloured body. Sweet dark malts and liquorice to the nose, hints of spices, too. Sweet chocolate malts in flavour sustained by candy sweetness, Yuletide spices and a touch of dried fruits like raisin. Gets way too sweet in the long run (Copenhagen, 13.11.2010).

Sigmund (5054) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 19, 2010
500 ml bottle, Christmas 2010, brew #379, from Vinmonopolet. ABV is 8.0%. Ingredients include barley malts, wheat malts (6 different malts, the base malt grown in the brewery’s own field), cane sugar, Belgian ale yeast, aniseed, coriander and 2 American hops. Dark brown colour, slightly hazy, big and lasting beige head. Moderate aroma, notes of malts, caramel, anise and coriander. Full and rich mouthfeel. Malty flavour, medium+ sweetness, caramel, distinct notes of anise, subdued hops. I am not a fan of anise, but this beer is not too bad.

ClubGonzo (3995) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2010
Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Dark, near-murky brown body with a thick, creamy off-white head. Nose is original and somewhat strange: sweet licorice, dark chocolate, molasses, roasted malts, hints of raisins, black currants and nougat. It’s kinda like mixing a fruity imp stout with a Belgian strong ale. The taste is more in the vicinity of Belgium, with some spiciness I can’t quite put my finger on; perhaps a bit of cardamom, clove or cinnamon. Or maybe anis. It could very well be anis. Something Xmasy, at least. A pretty nice holiday brew from Herslev.

TEJA (1286) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2010
Thinn light brown head. Mahogany-red color. The aroma is a strange mix of fruit shot and strong red wine with some spices. The taste is sweet with a low to medium bitterness with a medium to big body.
