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.

ClubGonzo (5399) - 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.

Aarhus, DK. Bottled. Sweetness hides the alcohol. Fruity notes and especially anise character

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.

OleR (4804) - 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.
