COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Alt beer (German style brown ale) brewers in Dusseldorf periodically brew a special beer for their best customers. The availability of these "sticke", or "secret" beers are usually only advertised to regular customers. The code to announce that the "sticke" beer is on tap is simply a picture of a blindfolded beer drinker. Boscos "Sticke" is big and malty with a pronounced unique hop bite from the liberal use of high quality continental hops. O.G. 1068 I.B.U. 40

On tap. A deep brown color with a foamy off-white head and lots of lacing. The aroma is faint, with sweet and toasted malts. The flavor is the same, with the sweet and toasted malts along with a faint hop bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BillKismet (3360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2011
Brazen brassy colored brew with bubbly head. Subdued brown and medium crystal malt nose needs some coaxing. For some reason, the flavors just don’t quite mesh for this beer. Leafy bitterness mixed with bland malt and wet shoe. Not a particularly favorable combination.

In my limited experience with alts, I found this to be quite flavorful and hoppy. Maybe too hoppy for an alt but definitely to my liking.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2007
(Tap) Pours a brown color with a very small tan head. Aroma of hops, grass, and doughy malt. Taste included some light caramel notes and some roasted nut. Moderately bitter finish. Average mouthfeel and palate for the style. I think this is a bit more hoppy than a altbier should be, but I liked it nevertheless.

charcot25 (181) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - DEC 19, 2007
A dark brown beer. Has little aroma but there is a noticeable herbal, almost minty, German noble hop flavor accompanied by notes of caramel, slight graininess and light roasted character.
