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

zenkis (638) - Ogre, LATVIA - DEC 21, 2014
Thanks to Agate. Bottle from Munich.
Pours hazy brown to amber with small, beige top, min lasing. Aroma- intense malty sweet, caramely, berries alike, a bit boozy at the beginning, but later it dissapears, pleasant aroma with good hops presence. Flavor quite the same except some dark, roasted malts notes. Sweet and hoppy, medium to heavy bitter. Medium+ body, light dry finish. Only small size of bottle makes a bit sad.

solidfunk (4782) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 11, 2014
A pretty potent beer, especially for a German. I can see why it rates on top of the category. Pours dark murky brown like mud without much head or lacing. Huge malt aroma with caramel, booze and a hint of raisin aroma. Roast is pretty potent here as well. Light sweet and bitter finish. Bottle.

PapaSkeetSkeet (982) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - DEC 10, 2014
cloudy cola-brown, mustard yellow at edges, thin, very fine, tan head, fades quickly to dusty, thin film. Aroma is chewy caramel, toffee, grass, beech-wood forest in the cold of winter (that is, it has pleasant woody/nutty notes in there.) Hints of earthiness. Flavor is boom! very barley-wine-esque: sweet syrupy spicy bitterness, pine and earthy hops. A bit cloying, but the hops keep it in check. A slight bit hot on the exhale, but this is also kept in check. Bitterness only has a slight lingering sensation. Nuttiness comes out as it warms. Body is medium-heavy, syrupy, with light carbonation, no burn, very soft and fine. The nutty wood in the aroma and the bitter-yet-restrained-slightly-hot finish are highlights for me. I am surprised this is German. It does indeed taste like an east-coast barley wine. Just a bit too sweet for me

Moravius (706) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 17, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2014 Flasche (33 cl), „Bottled on: 12.11“, vom Biershop Braugasthöfe, knapp 2 Jahre im Keller gelagert. - Tiefes Kastanienrot, trüb mit dunklen Schwebteilchen; sehr kurzlebiger Schaum. - In der Nase schwere dunkle Frucht mit Zitrusspitzen, bitterer Kakao, getoastetes Malz und weinige Süße. - Im Antrunk üppiges dunkles Malz, ein Rest von konzentrierter Karamelsüße, wuchtige, herb-ledrige Hopfenbittere und ein wenig likörartige Fruchtigkeit (in Rum getränkte Rosinen). Anklänge von Sojasoße und Hustensaft. Mild rezent, dicht, fast sämig. Im Abgang beinahe schmerzhaft wuchtige, ledrig-harzige Bittere und wärmender Alkohol. Enorm bitterer, lang anhaltender Nachtrunk. - Dieser Altbier-Doppelbock schmeckt wie die Karikatur eines „normalen“ Uerige Alt, verdickt und sirupartig. Ein Bier der Extreme; definitiv nicht mein Fall.

WillemsUrenkel (764) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - OCT 11, 2014
Tall 0,33 l bottle. Hard to get here in Germany. Pours out nearly black in the glass. No real head. Choco, coffie, berriefruits and licorice on the nose. Starts strange to me. Oily, malt, coffie, berriefuits, dark wood, hopy, with an unknown heavy sweetness, alcoholic. Complex. Not an easy to drink beer.

Dare I say I’m not particularly impressed. All the flavors are there. But this is syrupy, and way too boozy.
