Bottle enjoyed at homePOLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2011
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
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. kschep (1707) - DENMARK - DEC 13, 2011

0.5l bottle. This one pours a deep brown body with a red hue and a mild brown fading head. The aroma has nice spicy tones, lots of sweet caramel, sweet raisin, caramel malts and a licorice-anise spicy hint. Quite complex and not bad. Average carbonation level, full-bodied, warming with a nice rich and oily mouthfeel. Spicy and sweet flavors; lots of caramel and anise, licorice touches blended with milk chocolate and a nutty snickers-like flavors. Nuts and fudge perhaps? Ends really warming with a long and spicy aftertaste. Good stuff! 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. gunnar (9094) - Sandnes, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2011
Bottle as a gift from my son Mats at my 40 something birtday, thanks, Pours dark unclear brown with a huge creamy tanned head. Aroma of spices and chewy malts. Taste is dominated by the aniseed, with enough bitterness to make it tolerable and balanced. Me like a lot.

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.
