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.

FatPhil (9281) - 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.

pivnizub (8790) - 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............

Rune (7988) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2010
300ml, draught, guest ale at BrewPub København. Huge, off-white head that stays quite well. Near-clear, mahogany coloured body. Sweet dark malts and liquorice to the nose, hints of spices, too. Sweet chocolate malts in flavour sustained by candy sweetness, Yuletide spices and a touch of dried fruits like raisin. Gets way too sweet in the long run (Copenhagen, 13.11.2010).

JorisPPattyn (7885) - 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?

Skinnyviking (6954) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2006
Bottle. What I wrote about looks, aroma and flavor for the 2004 version also goes for this. Still I think 2005 is slightly better because it feels smore smooth and not quite as agressive as the 2004 version.
