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.

abemorsten (3683) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2011
Shared 0,5 l bottle from Vinmonopolet. Hazy chestnut body with a creamy, light brown head. Spicy, fruity and wooden nose. Sweet, toasted, wooden and alcoholic mouth. Full bodied. Syrupy texture. Medium carbonation.

espenra (1016) - Kurland, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2011
50cl bottle from Vinmonpolet. Best before 2012-06-24. Batch 493. Poured a brown colour with a red hue and a huge foamy head that settled down fast. Aroma is sweet with notes of spices (anis and coriander) and malts. The belgian yeast is also present. Flavour is also spicy. The malts really come out and play around with the belgian yeast again as well as some sugar and syrup. Not as much spices in the flavour compared to the aroma which was a bit disappointing, but they are present. Mostly the anis. Hints of liqorice. A decent beer, but neither a good winter ale or a belgian strong ale. It’s just not a good mix of these two styles.

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

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.

Palme (4857) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 1, 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 (9923) - 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.
