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.

yespr (29683) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2008 50 cL bottle. Pours dark brown with thick brown head. Fantastic christmas aroma of chocolate, fruits, anise, coriander and alcohol - some yeast as well. Taste adds malt notes to the aroma flavours. Finish is long and sweet. Lovely balanced and goes great to almost any food. Fantastic Christmas brew.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2005
An unclear dark brown beer with an OK light brown head. The aroma contains notes of oranges, lemon, caramel, and alcohol, while the flavor is very sweet with strong notes of caramel and nuts, but also fruits - I pick up oranges. Nice with the extra power.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2005
(On tap) Less star aniseed and a shipload of extra malt drives the alcohol way up in this new version of Herslevs Christmas offering. Unclear brown with an orangey glow and an off-white head. Sweetish, fruity aroma. Very potent body, sweetish vinous with distinct notes of oranges. Very marked and warming alcohol. Incredibly full-bodied but perhaps a tad too heavily alcoholic. 281005

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 2, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2013 Bottle (8.0% ABV, thanks omhper!) Deep murky reddish brown colour with mediumsized brown head that leaves slight lace. Aroma is caramel malts, slight roasted notes as well as chocolate and strong licorice. Flavour is bigtime licorice meeting caramel malts, some spices and mild hints of chocolate. A pleasantly balanced beer which would fit a Christmas table very well. 7 4 8 4 16 (Rated March 2009).

Draught@CPH BF 2013 (as Herslev Økologisk Stjerne Bryg). Hazy amber colour, not much head. Aroma is star anise, fruits, some caramel and wood. Flavour is star anise, spices, some fruits as well as caramel and mild herbal notes. 7 4 7 3 14.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2007 2007-11-01, draught at Lord Nelson, Copenhagen, 6-4-6-3-12=31
Beautiful brown color with red shades. Rather simple, falling in the English Strong Ale category, where the malt and caramel just try to get a bit above the surface, there is also a subtle spicy touch. Drinkable but quite plain.

2006-11-06, 7-3-7-3-14=34
Dark amber color. Some aroma of malt and caramel, with very light broth. Round malty and caramel taste, with a lot of candi sugar and light malt fruitness. Enjoyable.
