COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Stjernebryg er brygget af seks forskellige typer malt, der giver det mrke l en flot rdlig nuance. llet har kraftig fylde, og den store mngde restsukker giver en dejlig sdme, som vi har afbalanceret med en relativ stor mngde humle i forhold til, hvordan julel 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 gs, og gr godt i spnd med Herslev Brndevin Stjerneanis og Herslev Brndevin Korn. Perfekt som dessertl eller som afslutning p en hektisk juledag.

faroeviking (10295) - FAROE ISLANDS - NOV 17, 2006
Bottle. Hazy brownish colour. Bit creamy off-white long lasting head. Sweet aroma of some chocolate and fruits along with plenty of anise and coriander. The flavour has plenty of anise and coriander along with the malt. The aftertaste is long lasting with a good touch of sweetness. Very Christmasish indeed, almost too much.

Bottle: Hazy, amber coloured, quite stable creamy off-white head, sweet-dark-malt in the mineralic and metallic nose; robust sweet-bitter flavour, medium to full bodied; spicy, a bit musty, cellary finish with some alcoholic fruitiness in the aftertaste. No great pleasure............

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2007
I had a terrible bottle of the 2004 version, it was infected and quite awful. But now in December 2006 I had gathered enough courage to buy it again, and Im glad I did. Its dark mahogany with a red hue and a creamy head. The aroma has notes of yeast, roasted malt, anise, licorice, coriander and the flavour has notes of roasted malt, light caramel sweetness, anise, coriander, licorice, alcohol and a nice bitterness. A nice surprise, and Im glad to erase the memory of version 2004 from my mind... 1780

JorisPPattyn (9603) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2007
2007 version Good, very dense light-beige head, fast reduced to a rim above the deep brown opaque beer. Glue, solvent, sweet malts & chocolate: sharper notes upon something that could have well originated in the Ardennes. Spices and pineneedles, but blending in. Sweet-bitterish/spicy. Again very Walloon. Spices are present again, but I find it difficult to name them, which is a good thing (for the beer). Yeasty esters. Warming up, especially liquorice, restrained coriander, and dill (rather than anise) come up, chocolate-like sweetness remaining. Medium to well-bodied, alcohol peeping through. Way better than the first version (which I had infected, anyway). This might be the Danish Fantme, maybe?

bottle, Danke MoritzF! Hazy dark amber colour, medium-sized head. Fruity and malty-sweet nose. Heavy malty and sweet body with some hints of fruit and also spices and alpine herbs. Warming ans smooth, hints of caramel in the lingering finish.
