COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(Jul-Sep) Style be damned once again. An Alt that's a lager? Stickenjab is a sticke or secret alt that was smacked upside the head with lots-o-German hops. Formulated in the collective mind of NJAB (New Jersey Association of Beerwriters), this beer is our fourth collaborative brew. Munich and pilsner malts support an armful of Hersbrucker hops. This crisp, clean amber brew is available is the summer months. 48 IBUs and 6.4% ABV.

Bottle @ The WWGT2D? Tasting. I hope travlr doesn’t rate this. Amber with a small head. The nose is oxidized, as you’d expect. SOme sherry and rotting cherry. Cardboard sprinkled with cocoa powder. The taste is a great advertisement for the benefits of cellaring. Nasty cardboard. Mildly soured cherries. Bear claw donut. Light body, soft carbonation.

Join me, as I enjoy a Taste of History!

Appearance: Cautiously poured a deep amber-hued body, quite clear, due to the yeast packed into the bottom of the bottle due to years of quiet solitude. No head beyond a few, large stray bottles.

Smell: Toasted breadcrusts, some cooked honey, and aged-derived notes of cardboard and a hint of metal. Some dark fruitiness, some dirty socks.

Taste: Toasted breadcrusts, forgotten grains, and a low, supporting honeyesque sweetness. Raisins, loose change, and some water-logged cardboard.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. No remaining carbonation.

Overall: This had been another installment of... a Taste of History!

12 ounce bottled shared by maniac at the 12th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering on 9/18/10. Pours a clear amber color with nearly no head. Aroma of toffee, raisins, daint leafy hops and light toasty notes. The taste is citrus and leafy hops with tart-cherry like notes. Medium-full bodied.

Sampled at the Richmond Gathering XII. Pours a dull amber with ring of near white head. Nose is sweet caramel, biscuit, and some oxidation. Flavor is a little cardboard, sweet apples. Medium palate. Decent for the style i suppose? Easy drinker.

Bottle from kp. Served into a snifter. Pour is hazy nut brown with a small ring of sticky white head. Aromas of rasins, caramel, faded hops, and sweet fruit. Flavor is mellow and smooth with caramel, rasin, and plum. Past its prime but still enjoyable.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Bottle (3 years old?), courtesy GodOfThunder. Pours a hazy, reddish amber color with a dense, foamy, khaki colored head. Minimal, spotty lacing. The aroma is mostly sweet, light caramel and bready yeast dominating lesser notes of toffee, floral hops, and peppery spice. Flavors follow suit, sweet biscuit and toasted bread showing in the forefront, with staunch floral hops following through. Dark fruits emerge at the mid point, mostly figgy, but reaching as far as sweet-tart strawberry. Medium-plus bodied and well carbonated, the mouthfeel doesn’t impress, but doesn’t disappoint either. As others have noted, it’s certainly not at its best, but it is still solid even at this age.

A couple year old altbier... hmmm... Pours a cloudy amber with a thick fluffy tan head. Good carbonation, but smells mostly metallic. I’m actually surprised by the taste. Knowing this is likely nothing like it once tasted like, I like it. A lot of fruit, and even some sour. A good amount of spice, too. Certainly not in its prime, but it isn’t bad at all.
