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.

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.

espenra (933) - Kurland, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2011
50cl bottle from Vinmonpolet. Best before 2012-06-24. Batch 493. Poured a brown colour with a red hue and a huge foamy head that settled down fast. Aroma is sweet with notes of spices (anis and coriander) and malts. The belgian yeast is also present. Flavour is also spicy. The malts really come out and play around with the belgian yeast again as well as some sugar and syrup. Not as much spices in the flavour compared to the aroma which was a bit disappointing, but they are present. Mostly the anis. Hints of liqorice. A decent beer, but neither a good winter ale or a belgian strong ale. It’s just not a good mix of these two styles.

StoutHead (886) - DENMARK - NOV 29, 2014
Tap @ Ørsted Ølbar. Pours a deep red-brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma is malty, spicy and sweet. Taste is of malt, ripe fruits, sugars, bread, spices and hops. Sweet with a slightly tart finish. Full body and high carbonation. Malty and spicy finish. No bad but the spices doesn't do it any favours. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2005
Draught at BrewPub, Copenhagen. Good stuff! Cloudy dark and malty with lots of nice sweet fruits (prunes, plums, oranges). Some spices too. Warming palate and surprisingly drinkable for such a high ABV.

Bottle (dmg notes). Beautiful orange. Slight ethanol along with a lot of spices in aroma. Heavy taste with a lot of anis and spices. All that was readable on the note...

Sweet aroma. Round in flavour with a sweet taste of refined sugar. Hints of caramel in finish and aftertaste. Not nearly as much anis as in the 2004.
