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.

Palme (3652) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2011
0.5l bottle. This one pours a deep brown body with a red hue and a mild brown fading head. The aroma has nice spicy tones, lots of sweet caramel, sweet raisin, caramel malts and a licorice-anise spicy hint. Quite complex and not bad. Average carbonation level, full-bodied, warming with a nice rich and oily mouthfeel. Spicy and sweet flavors; lots of caramel and anise, licorice touches blended with milk chocolate and a nutty snickers-like flavors. Nuts and fudge perhaps? Ends really warming with a long and spicy aftertaste. Good stuff!

Dark amber pour with a nice tanned head. Aroma is strong on estery yeast notes, dark fruits, especially figs stand out very clearly, burnt caramel, spicy notes of anise, clove and cinnamon. The taste is very nicely balanced. Very sweet and estery, still has the figs and caramel, a slightly roasted note from the malts, some breadiness like rye bread. Also slightly spicy, anise cinnamon and cocoa. One of the bet danish Christmas beers I can think of.

Bottle as a gift from my son Mats at my 40 something birtday, thanks, Pours dark unclear brown with a huge creamy tanned head. Aroma of spices and chewy malts. Taste is dominated by the aniseed, with enough bitterness to make it tolerable and balanced. Me like a lot.

Rating #647, medbragt til juleølsmagning 2011 af Martin Skov

En tur i Toft Vin Islands Brygge velsignede os med dette bryg. Egentlig var julebryggene ikke kommet på hylderne endnu, men Herslev Stjerne Bryg blev anbefalet og fundet frem fra baglokalet. Vi taler om en helt mudret øl som nærmest er gråbrun, og skummet lå også ganske fint. Duften er krydret og der er både bær og gær at finde. Smagen er mere kompleks end noget hidtil denne aften; bl.a. findes koriander, citrus, anis, og en del sødme fra malt og gær; alkoholen tydes kun svagt i baggrunden. Gennemsnitlig tyngde og tykkelse, men bestemt en fin julebryg.

Beer5000 (5776) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 17, 2011
500 ml bottle 2010, 8% ABV. Clear, dark amber body with a big, foamy off-white head that fades. Aroma is malty with spices, mainly anis and liquorices. Flavor is sweet and soft malty, spicy, a bit fruity, moderate bitter and with a sweet malty aftertaste. Quite OK, maybe just a bit on the sweeter side with some lack of bitterness.
