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.

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 (14127) - 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.
