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

Sampled at Dutch 70’s "Tasting in the Woods; Part Deux". Clear dark amber with a thick white head. Bready, doughy caramel nose with some grassy hops. Flavor has notes of dark caramel, lots of bread, alcohol and tons of resinous noble hop bitterness. Pleasantly sweet too. Full, round and creamy with moderate carbonation. Really good stuff.

Interesting balance between the hop and malt department with this beer. A dark amber in appearance with an aroma was a bit overly alcoholic, strongly malty, a little roast and some hops also present. A very malty sweet flavor, however it is nicely off set with hops so one tune doesn’t play louder than the other. Also some alcohol on the palate. Good beer. Cool bottle.

Bottle. Pours clear brown with an off-white fizzy spare head. Aroma is heavy malt (caramel, cereal, nutty), average hops (herbs, grass), light yeast (dough) and notes of butter, honey, vanilla. Average duration, heavy sweetness, moderate acidity and light bitterness. Medium bodied, mineral texture, fizzy and astringent.

From the legendary Ledger’s Liquors in Berkeley. Bottled 06.04.?? Aroma of dark fruit, a bit of malt, and perhaps a bit of yeast. Not getting hop; perhaps the fruit obscures it for me. Dark apricot color, with a nonpersistent white head. Starts with a sweet plumminess, then an exquisite balance of complex hop. And it stays that way. This is really good. The flavor develops a bit as one progresses through the bottle.

hopscotch (9996) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2006
Bottle... TITW Part Deux... Clear amber beer with a small, fizzy, off-white head. The aroma is toasty and nutty with notes of tropical fruit and toffee. Sweet, boozy flavor with medium alcohol and hop bitterness. Medium to full-bodied and oily with slight carbonation. Lengthy, bitter finish. A shout goes out to whkingery for sharing his bottle with everyone!

Enjoyed a sample of this beer at Tasting in the Woods, Part Deux. Altbier is one of my all time favorite beer styles, and Uerige has set the bar very high when it comes to alt, and its bigger, brawnier, brother, sticke. Leave to Uerige to go even higher with the first ever "doppel sticke" which is an even bigger version of sticke. This beer pours to a beautiful, bright, deep copper color, with a thick, creamy, white head, and a moderate carbonation. The nose on this beer is fantastic, with lots of big, pungent, spicy/herbal hop aromas, and some toasty nutty malt aroma. The palate is slick on the tongue, with really great, toasty/nutty malt, paired with some nice fruity notes, on a smooth, and clean body. Doppel Sticke finishes with those great malt flavors up front, then ends with a zesty herbal burst of hop bitterness that lingers. A super charged up version of altbier, I loved this one. Like with altbier, and regular sticke, Uerige has brewed up another bench mark example of a beer style. World class beer.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2006
Bottle pours light brown with a fair creamy head that stays well and laces some. Aromas of toasted malts, caramel, and yeast with a little dark fruit. Flavor is rich and malty, caramel, toasted malts, a little chocolate, raisin, and some dark fruits. Smooth soft palate with ample body and light carbonation. Nice brew.. Enjoyed it..

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 30, 2006
UPDATED: APR 29, 2008 Bottle pours a a deep coppery brown and develops a creamy large tan head that proves durable with excellent lace production. There was still 1/8" of foam approaching the bottom of the glass 20 minutes later. Spicy and floral hop aromas are quite dominant over a background of lightly smoky roasted malt and burnt sugar. I’m not used to smelling hops like this in a German beer. This is very rich tasting with a medium/full body, light carb0nation, and a bit of oiliness.Nicely balanced flavor with some thick malty sweetness and peppery hop bitterness that leaves a nicely dry finish. This beer was a total surprise to me, and very pleasant one indeed.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2006
Murky brown body, thick cream head. Complex, inviting aroma of toast, caramels, breads, and spice, even hints of raisin. Strongly toasty body with leafy hops (tea leaves) and dark fruits (prune), light sweetness, and alcohol. Complex but the individual elements make a subtle presence. Very nice.

Courtesy of a fine Mystery beer Swap participant...I think twas jjpm74. Lovely concentrated fruit malt aroma has some mild citrusy tingle in the nose and features fruitcake, baked pineapple sweetbread, bannana nut bread and some toned down caramel accents. Very lovely aroma highligted by the wonderfully malt complimentary pineapple notes. The body of the beer is a ruddy, dusky brown and holds creamy tan head that is about the thickness of a standard Bic pen. The fore is a rich and sweet (low-spice) fruitcake. Baked Pineapple accents here as well. More caramel flavor than aroma...rich sweet and malty with caramel through the middle. The finish is strongly sweet, but well balanced with a firm bitterness. this is one of those beers I always new I’d try, but never got around to and now feel silly for having waited so long. Very nice.
