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.

Rating #647, medbragt til juleølsmagning 2011 af Martin Skov

En tur i Toft Vin Islands Brygge velsignede os med dette bryg. Egentlig var julebryggene ikke kommet på hylderne endnu, men Herslev Stjerne Bryg blev anbefalet og fundet frem fra baglokalet. Vi taler om en helt mudret øl som nærmest er gråbrun, og skummet lå også ganske fint. Duften er krydret og der er både bær og gær at finde. Smagen er mere kompleks end noget hidtil denne aften; bl.a. findes koriander, citrus, anis, og en del sødme fra malt og gær; alkoholen tydes kun svagt i baggrunden. Gennemsnitlig tyngde og tykkelse, men bestemt en fin julebryg.

Bottle. Murky dark brown with small lasting head. Spices, honey, blue berries, sweet liqourice and yeast in a deliscious, complex blend. Full boided with a velvety mouthfeel. More please.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2006
Pours a dark brown with hardly any head. Heavily spiced aroma. Also quite unilaterally spiced flavour, almost too much to drink. Would be good to pour into a beef stew.

Body is a very cloudy, muddy brown with yellow and tan swirls, totally opaque. A thin, dirty tan head slowly and mostly recedes. Odd in appearance, but looks hearty and well crafted nonetheless. The aroma is startling. Mustard greens, dried cherries, olive tapenade, moderate alcohol. Bold yeastiness with a dash of funk noted. Star anise, dates and other dark and dense earthy-type fruits are also noted, a touch of apricot. This gets stranger with each whiff. There is a good amount of toasted grains present which bring some balance to an otherwise off-kilter nose. Sharp caramel and tart yeast are noticed first in the flavor. Is this a conglomeration of the previously sensed nuances in the nose, or did De Dolle get a hold of this recipe and blend it with a Danish barleywine? This is wacky. Alcohol is everpresent in the flavor, drying the mouth out late after each sip. Stale lemony acidity is a prelude to a syrupy finish, which is quite dry but is also fully sticky. Light to medium in carbonation, medium-full bodied. Yet another unique beer from Herslev, I dig this brewery. One extra point given to the overall score for incredible uniqueness employed while maintaining good general drinkability.

DraftDodger (1079) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2015
Copenhagen 22/12 2015. 50 cl bottle from Irma. The beer I am drinking holds 9 % - not the 8 % mentioned on RateBeer. Pours clear dark reddish brown with white head. Head disappears almost immediately leaving only spots of foam. Aroma of fermented dark berries, anis, licorice and alcohol. Reminds me of cherry wine. Medium carbonation and oily palate. Taste is sweet fruit with a solid amount of booziness. Anis give notes of licorice. A bit heavy alcoholic sweetness - but if you settle for a single one it is worth the trouble.

phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - NOV 19, 2011
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 (994) - 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.

MPA (950) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - JUL 30, 2011
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...
