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

The aroma is very unique, my notes call it a "yeast bomb", but in the most positive way. I began to chant "Sticke BOMB!, Sticke BOMB!" in my mind based on the fragrance alone. Flavor of this altbier was hybrid of a barleywine, Belgian dubbel and an English old ale wrapped up in one. Sweet malts, and fruity yeast mix well with light bitterness. Highly recommended.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2006
Bottle (330ml cool swing-top). My 800th rating. Poured slightly hazy dark copper with an average lasting off-white foamy-creamy head. Aroma of woody roast caramel malt, fruity yeast, slightly grainy and chocolatey, the alcohol is only hinted at - complex, on the sweet side, a little mild. Taste follows the nose, but fruitier (currants) with the alcohol much more prominent, lovely rich toasty malt, this is surprisingly bitter in its long finish. Mouthfeel is bitter, syrupy, thick yet very lively. All German? This reminds me of strong belgian ale, eisbock, even harvest ale - excellent.

Indra (2593) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JAN 10, 2006
33cl bottle. Highly intriguing aroma, rich, malty and fruity with suggestions of frosted spice cake, cinnamon, raisin, mild alcohol and toffee. Deep auburn in color with a fine, sparse head that leaves an intricate grid of lace behind. Flavor profile is very well balanced throughout, multiple aspects fading and reappearing, including sugary, sweet malts, caramel and light cocoa, licorice, cola, dark grains, baking spices, berryish and raisin fruitiness, faintly herbal hops and doughy yeast attributes coupled with mildly peppery alcohol. Rather unique and interesting. The mouthfeel is gently warming and smooth, body is fairly full. I would certainly give this several more tries if I had the opportunity.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Swingtop bottle. Deep chestnut colored beer, ruby highlights, and a larger tan head that lasted for ages. Great malty aroma, tea like, caramel, darker fruit, Flavor is dominated by the malts and thats not a bad thing at all. Plummy, with some molasses, dough, and some light bitterness on the end. Medium to full bodied and you’d never know this was 8.5%. Solid beer, I’ll drink again for sure.

Terminus (3219) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JAN 5, 2006
Dark brown color with a thin off coloered head. Sweet and almost smokey aroma. Smooth first taste with a sweet caramel taste. Sweet finish and very tasty.

highlandlad (1412) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JAN 3, 2006
Poured a plummy brown colour with a short head. Sweet and raisiny aroma with a disappointing hint of wet dog. Great creamy mouthfeel and full body. Lots of dried fruit on the tongue and natural sugars. Some pine needly hoppiness. Falls away a bit in the finish. (Bottle, RateBeer Sydney Xmas gathering 2005)

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2005
Dark, reddish brown. Very crisp, piney, Christmas tree nose with some sweet caramel and some bready, melanoidy notes. Quite sweet flavor with some citric and piney hints, balanced bitterness. Good, but I think I prefer the regular Sticke--this tastes thoroughly Americanized, a ploy for the distributors and gravity heads over here.

robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 26, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2007 Dark Brown Coloring with Sandy Head. Rich Sweet Carmamel Malt Aroma. Bread Dough, Rich Malt Taste. Reminiscent of a Dubbel, But Much More Syrapy....Mouthfeel is Thinner Then Expected...Still a Wonderfully Rich Caramel, Roasted Malt Flavor. Not a Beer to Turn Down.

jsquire (3387) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - DEC 24, 2005
Clear amber color out of the bottle with a nice off-white head. Burnt sugar sweetness in the nose. Very fruity beer. My initial impression was chocolate covered cherries and plums with some burnt caramel. The finish has some orange rind bitterness. Relatively light on the tongue. Very nice beer. I think this was part of my Secret Santa in July box that I have been coveting until now.
