COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

OG - 1085; IBU - 75; Ingredients; Hops:Spalt Spalter, Hallertauer Perle, Spalt Hallertauer; Malts: Pilsner malt, caramel malt, roasted malt

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2007
Pours a clear maroon with little to no head. Pretty unique smell with bread dough, dark fruits, malt, and orange. Kind of bitter in the taste, slightly sweet. Grapefruit, citrus, and malts. Kind of wrecks the palate. Not too bad, pretty interesting.

valpoaj (663) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - FEB 6, 2007
Muddy brown pour with bubbly tan head. Wonderful aroma that is very complex with definite hints of raisins, sugar and malt. Taste is similary complex with a beautiful alcohol flavor combined with a nutty, roasty aftertaste; the honey flavor is again evident, but nowhere near as strong as in the Sticke. The hops definitely come through as well in the aftertaste. Nice creamy palate; the Uerige products I have sampled to date cannot be compared to anything else I have tried in my short ’legal age’ lifetime...they are worth seeking out!

luvcasks (178) - USA - FEB 4, 2007
pours a gorgeous mahogany with a light tan head... which oh! so gracefully falls to a thin layer Nose of raisins, plums, caramel, some smoke and a whiff of alcohol Taste is incredibly variegated, licorice, dark figs, roast, smoke all with a nice big firm hop bite which is (black pepper like) spicy. the alcohol is very well hidden. The finish is long creamy, medium bodied and grrr... I cant put words here.. smoke, fruit and hop appear and disappear Overall: Absotively and posolutely, a German interpretation of barley wine. At 8.5 % should be a sipper but it is so beguiling and inviting flavorful that damn it I seem to be headed to the inevitable bottom of the glass. A must try!...I wonder what would happen if all 3 barley wine styles are tasted side-by side... I am rating it high... I don’t think there is a style for the sticke

BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 4, 2007
Small pop-top brown bottle from Florian’s in Auburn. Copper-red slightly murky translucent body with about a half an inch of off-white head that leavea fairly good lacing. Nuttiness dominates the aroma with just a hint of black licorice or root beer quality to it. Nut, caramel malt, roastiness all play big parts in the flavor with hints of black licorice, fruit, and smoke with a clean finish. Some alcohol warming present, although alcohol flavor is almost non-existent (impressively). A nice and surprising creamy mouthfeel. Drinkable for the abv and body, but I’d still approach this as a bit of a sipper. Actually impressed with this one. An impressive altbier and a damn good lager.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - FEB 3, 2007
Pours an ever so slightly hazed copper color. Half the pour is beer, half the pour is foam. Good head retention (a little too good - I am getting impatient). Decent lacing. Sweet malty aroma - caramel and brown sugar. The flavor is very similar to the aroma, but substantially more pronounced. Then there is this wonderfully bitter hop presence in the finish that makes you forget that this is a sweetish beer. Until the next sip, anyway. Ah - when the last sip is gone, that hop presence lingers a good long time. Fuller body, on the smoother side, and softly but very generously carbonated.

antzman (316) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - JAN 22, 2007
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with hints of red, with a decent sized white head. The aroma is extremely malty, with a hint of hops. The flavor was very malty. Sweet fruits, caramel, dates, raisons, with a touch of alcohol. Very smooth and tasty.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 21, 2007
11.2oz bottle. Aroma: Good sweet maltiness with a nice toffee note. Alcohol and dark fruits seem to twine together in an aroma similar to rum raisin. Some bready yeastiness and a bit of spiciness. Appearance: Poured a murky reddish brown. Off-white head was small, creamy, and short lived. Not much lacing. Flavor: Medium-sweet maltiness with some caramel and raisin. Alcohol is noticeable but merges well with th rest of the beer. Some light earthy hops into the finish. Sweet but not cloying finish. Medium-light bitterness. Palate: Medium-full bodied. Low carbonation. Light alcohol warming in back of mouth. Overall: Very ’barleywine-esque’. Lots of good malt flavors. Low carbonation kept me from scoring this higher.

beerbill (3567) - Laurel, New York, USA - JAN 21, 2007
First of all, great looking bottle and nice touch with the resealable ceramic top. Pours a deep reddish brown that allows some light to pass through. Thick, creamy head. Aroma is malt, raisins, dates and caramel. These same qualities are also present in the flavor albeit a bit stronger than the aroma. Bitter finish but not excessive. The alcohol is noticeable but does not interfere with this beer. A nice choice for a winter evening.
