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

BitchesBrew (714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2006
[bottle dated 4/18.. 05?] Dark brown color, short but dense head makes its way down the glass. Aroma is grassy hops. Flavors are wonderfully smooth, caramel malts, chocolate, and roasty sweetness. Hops finish things off in an unexpected way, but seem to balance things out. Alcohol content is very well hidden. This is an excellent brew- a very nice surprise.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2006
Bottled on date is not clear. Brown/ruby. Modest, frothy, tan head. Nose of dark fruits, roasted caramel/toffee, oats, cloves. Beautiful aroma. Same flavors with graham crackers in the middle, crisp, floral hops and subtle alcohol in the finish. Smooth, medium/full body. "German barley wine" works. Excellent brew, dangerously drinkable.

PorterPounder (5190) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 14, 2006
Knightly Spirits, Orlando, Fl. 11.5 oz popper-stop bottle. Dark brown pour with a thin, light, off-white bubbly head. Sweet, intoxicating aroma with hints of rum, raisins and molasses. Very reminiscent of many a German Dopplebock. Flavor has some raisins, molasses, chocolate. Afraid that it might turn cloying near the end - but stays true and strong to the finish. Alcohol is noticed - but not distracting. Very thick mouthfeel - chewy. Overall, excellent.

Small offwhite head, retention is good, creamy appearence with a nice stringy lace. Murky browness with a dark copper hue hidden in there. Nose is fruity, dark fruits, fig, raisin and a touch grainy, maybe some over ripe bananna notes as well. Body is medium, lightly creamy. Sweet malts, faint roast, dark fruits, caramel with chocolate notes and a light fruitiness in the medium sweet finish. 8.5%m HUH?

ElPresidente1984 (173) - Maine, USA - MAR 8, 2006
Cool friggin bottle. Pours a transparent brown color. small head. pungent aroma of roasted malts, and ripend fruits. flavor is sweet, starts malty, then some fruity (raisin, plum, pear etc.) flavors kick in. finishes with a sort of orange citrusy, hoppy kick. get better the more you drink. very nice layering of differant flavors. thick smooth mouthfeel. a great beer, very unique.

blankboy (5797) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2006
Bottle. Pours a very bubbly dark amber-brown with an average size lasting foamy off-white head. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, dark fruit and mild hops. Flavour -- wow, what a nice surprise! -- starts sweet with caramel malt and brown sugar followed by roasted malt and chocolate and finishes with a nice amount of hops. Medium to full bodied. I was not expecting this, it’s by far the best German beer I’ve had yet and probably the best Altbier I’ve had. Fantastic stuff!

A proprietary blend of hops and malts makes this the benchmark high-octane alt.DRY,smooth.What an alt should be. Warning:May be habit forming.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2006
Not a hell of a lot of notes on this one apart from the rating. Dark red brown with a little head. Lots of grassy hops. Tastes a bit like a scotch ale (?).

jaymobrown (1617) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2006
Dark leather color. Cloudy with a large head foaming over. Sweet nose with a heafty dose of malt. Tastes like straight up grain feedbag. Sticks all over the mouth like a bunch of beer glue. Bitter chocolate.
