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

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Chestnut brown color with a thin white head. Rich malty aroma with notes of caramel and plums. Sticky, sweet malty flavor. Caramel, dark fruit and a light peppercorn spice. Just enough hops in the finish to keep things in balance.

Gorbalev (2957) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2006
Bottle. Dark brown, small white head. Looks great. Lots of malt and alcohol in sweet aroma. Medium mouthfeel. Very sweet and spicy taste - thick and syrupy. Some hops in there as well. A big thick sweet tasty beer that was pretty darn nice to drink

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Light, hazy mahoganey. Not much of a head it goes… very thin off-white ring. Sweet malty, slightly roasty barleywine-esque aroma. Very sweet flavor, light smoke, some citrus rind bite. Images of all these barleywines keep coming in my head. It is very malty, with the accompanying hops. I really can’t believe this is called an Alt.

Bottle courtesty of Kevin. Hazy brown body, no head. Sweet tootsie roll chocolate aroma with a subtle hop pepper-spicing. Big fatty malt flavor - loads of chocolate malt with the same tootsie roll sweetness acting as a base. Some On top of that there’s some green leafy hops, but they take a seat to the big malt profile. Thanks Kevin!

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2006
Thanks Kevin! The beer pours to a hazy brown body with a light white head. Good lacing! The aroma is pretty strong with flaked barley aromas and with toasted tootsie roll-esque aroma and licorice and raisins. The flavor is not subtle. Lots malts. Black currants and sweet malts. Very in your face and tasty. The palate is medium full bodied and has a light powdered sugar. Almost syrupy but not sticky. Mmmm...

LePoopie (151) - Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2006
Thanks mom. Has a decent malty aroma. Cloudy brown color, with a whitish head. Nice kind of strong malty flavor, slightly bitter. Good body, with a little carbonation. Overall, pretty good. Nice bottle shape.

JFGrind (1860) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2006
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.

Hazy brown color with a thin off-whiye head. Dark malt and light wheat aroma. Strong molassas flavor.

HogTownHarry (6131) - 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 (2663) - 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.
