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.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2008
Bottled. Hazy amber colour, with a solid, dense pale beige head. Enormously fruity with pomerance, lilac and bird cherry. Sweetish and creamy mouthfeel with Belgian yeast backbone. There are esters and herbs once warmed up. And a little white choclate. Medium-full bodied. Interesting beer.

pivnizub (8737) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2007
Bottle: Hazy, amber coloured, quite stable creamy off-white head, sweet-dark-malt in the mineralic and metallic nose; robust sweet-bitter flavour, medium to full bodied; spicy, a bit musty, cellary finish with some alcoholic fruitiness in the aftertaste. No great pleasure............

JorisPPattyn (7796) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2007
2007 version Good, very dense light-beige head, fast reduced to a rim above the deep brown opaque beer. Glue, solvent, sweet malts & chocolate: sharper notes upon something that could have well originated in the Ardennes. Spices and pineneedles, but blending in. Sweet-bitterish/spicy. Again very Walloon. Spices are present again, but I find it difficult to name them, which is a good thing (for the beer). Yeasty esters. Warming up, especially liquorice, restrained coriander, and dill (rather than anise) come up, chocolate-like sweetness remaining. Medium to well-bodied, alcohol peeping through. Way better than the first version (which I had infected, anyway). This might be the Danish Fantôme, maybe?

Habanero (2449) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2007
Bottle, 2005. Pours hazy and brown with a nice beige head. Nose of anis and orange fruit. Malty and sweet flavour with anis, coreander and citrus fruit. Medium bodied. Could be more spicy as a traditional Christmas beer. A nice brew and well balanced too.

Maria (10125) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2007
I had a terrible bottle of the 2004 version, it was infected and quite awful. But now in December 2006 I had gathered enough courage to buy it again, and I’m glad I did. It’s dark mahogany with a red hue and a creamy head. The aroma has notes of yeast, roasted malt, anise, licorice, coriander and the flavour has notes of roasted malt, light caramel sweetness, anise, coriander, licorice, alcohol and a nice bitterness. A nice surprise, and I’m glad to erase the memory of version 2004 from my mind... 1780

larsniclas (5529) - Billdal, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2007
Draught at Ölbaren, Copenhagen. Deep amber with a creamy, off-white head. Flowery citrus and perfume. Sweet maltiness. Thick an oily palate with malty fruitiness. A bit too sweet; almost sugary.

Brix (633) - DENMARK - NOV 16, 2007
Tasted 207-11-16. Fresh bottle, 50cl. Pours a hazy, dark, reddish, toffee color with beige head. Hoppy aroma with notes of mandarin and cookies. Flavours count primarily hops and alcohol, but well balanced IMO. I also get caramel and a bit of a nutty aftertaste. It’s good! I wonder if there’s more behind the alcohol and hops than meets the taste buds!?! Maybe I’ll age a bottle just out of curiosity.

Defreni (2463) - Husum, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2007
Fad. Udemærket julebryg, der godt kunne "spille" lidt mere med musklerne i betragtning af de 9 %. Dette gør den særdeles drikbar men heller ikke mere. Klassisk belgisk stil.
