COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Uerige DoppelSticke might just be "Germany's interpretation of a barley-wine", ie a third definition next to England's "malt-driven" idea {such as JW Lees Vintage Harvest Ale} and America's "hop-heavy" version {such as Sierra Nevada's BigFoot}. OG - 1085; IBU - 75; Ingredients; Hops:Spalt Spalter, Hallertauer Perle, Spalt Hallertauer; Malts: Pilsner malt, caramel malt, roasted malt

12 oz. flip top bottle. Bottled on 06 11… Can that be true? It pours a very dark orange/brown color with an orange colored head. The aroma is aged maltiness. Lots of toffee, sherry, almonds, hints of cocoa and heavy caramel. The flavor is very much like a barleywine with more nutty sherry notes amidst fairly strong bitterness but no hop flavor. Caramel and toffee sweetness is huge as is the body and mouthfeel. A bit heavy with the oxidation even for a two year old bottle. Interesting though. The only lager characteristics I get are the earthy noble type hops.

CarlJonas (205) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2013
Dark brown with an off-white head that leaves a permanent lid. Rich malty aroma of dried fruit; dates, apricots and such, balanced by spicy hops. There is also notes of chocolate liqueur and dark Muscovado sugar. The taste is bitter-sweet and slightly herbal, almost Jäger-like though in a good, but I guess quite contradictory, way. The aftertaste is long and bitter. Low carbonation and rich mouthfeel. Wow, this was pretty awesome, like an English barley wine infused with lots of noble hops.

jmagnus87 (2220) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Bottle poured into a kolsch glass. Pours a dark brown with a bit of a ruby hue and a half finger of light khaki head. Aroma of caramel, molasses, dark fermented fruits, raisins and some spicy hopiness. Taste is light sweet. Molasses, caramel, candi sugar, dark fruits, plum, and a bit of spicy, herbal hop bitterness. Full bodied with a sticky texture. Soft carbonation and a super long finish. Overall, awesome. Super long, surprisingly bitter and surprisingly boozy finish.

Cor marrom escura. Espuma creme com medis formação e persistência. Aroma de caramelo, frutas secas, malte. No sabor, açúcar mascavo, alto dulçor, baixo amargor. Teor alcoólico se sobressai no final. Boa cerveja. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bamsen78 (2417) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2013
Bottle from McTapps - thank you, thank you, thank you, Sabine! :-) Opens with a real PLOP, much better than anything of the kind I’ve heard. Pours cloudy dark amber with stable, creamy beige head. Dark aroma of fruit, malt and caramel with a subtle dusty touch. Dusty and hoppy onset, gradually giving way to a perfect syphony of caramel malt and fruit, beautifully accompanied by roasty overtones. Bitter and slightly roasty finish. Perfect. I just adore it.

Bottle from La Fine Mousse, Paris. dark brown, small head. Chocolate and caramel aroma, nice molasses flavours without becoming overly sweet. Vanilla, caramel and wood adds to complexity. A pleasant surprise.
