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.

Fad. Udemærket julebryg, der godt kunne "spille" lidt mere med musklerne i betragtning af de 9 %. Dette gør den særdeles drikbar men heller ikke mere. Klassisk belgisk stil.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2007
50 cl bottle. Yeast at the bottom. Dark brown colour with a little weak white head. Malty aroma with notes of caramel and hints of yeast and anis-spice. Nice mouthfeel of malt and spices. Little carbonation and hard to find the 9 % alcohol.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - NOV 11, 2005
Pours unclear dark brown with a fine tan head. Lots of spices and yeast in the aroma. Tones of fruit and a warming note of alcohol. Strong velvety flavor of malt and heavy spices specially anise. Citrus and pineapple in there as well. Good bitter finish, almost biding. As said, soft mouthfeel. Highly drinkable despite the high ABV and spicyness. Very nice.

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2011
100509: Slightly spicy scent (oddly enough, not anise). Sweet, heavy and strong spicy taste - slightly sharp taste both because alc. and the spices. It is important to say, that despite the scary name, it does not taste very much of anise. The flavor reminiscent of Belgian strong ale. Alcohol, spices and sweetness combine to make this a very good beer. But it would be better if it was a little less alcohol i think.

Gr0ve (2169) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2010
500 ml bottle. 2010 edition. Bottle says 8.0% abv. Dark brown and seemingly clear. Tall fine-laced off-white head that clings to the glass. Sourish spicy aroma. Hints of Belgian yeast. Pepper, licorice, coriander, cinnamon and anise seed flavours. Warming alcohol. Soft carbonation level that balances the alcohol and spices nicely. Velvety texture. Balanced and quite enjoyable.

Bottle enjoyed at home
Dark brown, thin beige head. Smells powerfully of anis, also some caramel and malts. Taste is quite one dimentional and malty, good sweetness. Dry on the palate, nice malt bitterness. Ok beer, but forgettable

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 6, 2006
Courtesy of a fine Dane. <P> Body is dark opaque brown with a diminishing, bubbly yet somewhat creamy, thumb thick tan head. <P> The aroma holds sharp whiffs of dark fruit, cherry, prune, raisins and a touch of licorice for good measure. It smells both oily and dusty though which detracts from the fruit. <P> Cocoa, chocolate, light natural black licorice, stewed raisins and some mild mace like spice. Very nice. If the intensity were amped up a little more this could be special. Also get some slightly tart caramel malt and a faint hint of smokiness.

Bottle. Pours a beautiful red/brown with a dense, fluffy, brownish head. Sharp, sweet and fruity aroma, which gives way for licorice notes as it warms. Could be nice, but I find the licorice somewhat intrusive – it doesn’t really work like it should, which is a shame because I really liked the aroma before the licorice kicked in. Flavour is sweetish and fruity like the aroma. Licorice here as well, but it works better than in the aroma. Still, it could be better. Also, the sweetness gets a bit cloying after a while. But overall a decent brew, though. 09-11-05.
