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.

OleR (4786) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2010
0.5L bottle from Vinmonopolet. Low sand-colored head. Hazed, dark ruby colored body. Inviting Belgo-yeast on the nose, along with tones of English licorice and dried dark fruits. Also a scent of aniseed, fortunately not overdone. Spiced and light sweet malt flavor. Some burnt sugar, some light roast, and a hint of dried dark fruits. Bitterness for balancing. Medium full. Alcohol is well masked. Spiced malt finish. Not top end Belgian style dark strong, but solid and reliable.

thebeertourist (4762) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2006
Draught at Lord Nelson, Copenhagen. Dark brown colour with a decent khaki head. Sharp berry aroma. Flavours combine chocolate and berries with a hint of smokiness and some spices towards the finish. Medium to full body. A complex Christmas brew.

skortila (4433) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2008
Bottled. Thanks to thewolf. Aroma has roasted, caramel malts and a lot of fruits. Hazy, brown coloured with an off-white head. Taste is sweet, caramel malty and very fruity (plums, raisin). Really nice.

Beer4000 (4402) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 17, 2011
500 ml bottle 2010, 8% ABV. Clear, dark amber body with a big, foamy off-white head that fades. Aroma is malty with spices, mainly anis and liquorices. Flavor is sweet and soft malty, spicy, a bit fruity, moderate bitter and with a sweet malty aftertaste. Quite OK, maybe just a bit on the sweeter side with some lack of bitterness.

ClubGonzo (3924) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2010
Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Dark, near-murky brown body with a thick, creamy off-white head. Nose is original and somewhat strange: sweet licorice, dark chocolate, molasses, roasted malts, hints of raisins, black currants and nougat. It’s kinda like mixing a fruity imp stout with a Belgian strong ale. The taste is more in the vicinity of Belgium, with some spiciness I can’t quite put my finger on; perhaps a bit of cardamom, clove or cinnamon. Or maybe anis. It could very well be anis. Something Xmasy, at least. A pretty nice holiday brew from Herslev.

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.

stouby (3698) - Holbæk, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2005
Botttle, at No. 5. Redbrown with beige head, almost diminishing, modest lacings, unfiltered. Aroma moderate malty, light hoppy (brown sugar, caramel, koriander, star anis). Flavor moderate sweet, light bitter, long duration. Medium body, oily, soft carbonated. The alcohol is felt. Reminds of a Belgian abbey-ale, missing bitterness.
