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.

Blom (831) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2009
Hazy brown with a low head. Malty, very malty, but also with lots of rest sugar and some nice spices. The caramel malt dominates, but I can also detect some anis and other spices. A bit cloying, though - I could not have drunk a full bottle myself.

jesperhammer (2815) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2009
06-NOV-2009, bottle @home. Brown/red slightly hazy with nice high light brown head. Malty nose with some yeast and spice. Lots of malts in the flavor. Very belgian style - Trappist inspiration is clear, but also some barley wine character. I have heard Tore from the brewery call it close to a barley wine, and now that I have not got their barley wine (Mjølner) to compare it with, I can sense it. It is actually barley wine like. But then the x-mas spices steps in. This is my third x-mas brew tonight, and by far the best. And always one of my favorite seasonal brews.

Sterne Bryg 2008 bottle 500ml from Systembolaget Stockholm shared with FatPhil &Anna reddish brown small white head. Kick of hops then sweet malty barley wine like sweet fudge spices . Alcohol comes through sticky mouthfeel . Might be pleasant starter of the heavy Christmas dinner.

FatPhil (9005) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 17, 2009
500ml bottle (Systembolaget, Stockholm) - shared with Mirjukka - thanks!
Rich deep ruby, no head. Pleasantly sweet hoppy and nutty aroma. Sticky slimy palate - way too sweet. Low carbonation. Soapy taste, and exceptionally sweet. Not really a beer I want to drink currently, just too sickly sweet, and with unbalanced metallic and soapy bitterness.
