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

iowaherkeye (2698) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - AUG 23, 2006
<!-- i -->Bottled on 06.04<!-- /i -->, 11.2oz flip top. Pours a clear brown copper with a two-finger creamy beige head. Aroma is of burnt toffee, raisins, toasty malts, light bitter nuttiness and spice. Taste has lots of bitterness up front, followed by some sweet caramel and raisins, some nuts and toasty malts, into a lingering bitterness. A very light chalkiness like that of a porter in the finish. There is some alcohol presence throughout, though not overbearing at all. Burps kind of grassy. Medium bodied, light-moderate carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. The other Uerige’s were good, but not big. I wasn’t expecting the "bigness" from this, and was quite a pleasant surprise. Very nice.

3fourths (8639) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 18, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2007 Bottle, purchased in Ohio I think, August 2006. Pours a very dark caramelized bronze color with a creamy tan head. Moderately sweet nose, full of black cherries, light char, some funky, yeasty toast scents. Properly crisp, creamy as well, toasted cherries and plums noticed, with a dry char flavor throughout that is really nice. I like the idea of this beer, a double altbier basically, and I love the flavor and palate even better. One of the best beers I’ve had in a while.

After another bottle it hit me - doppel altbier is just like barley wine... toasty, sticky sweet malts with a big hop scent and good bitterness... seriously, drinking this thinking "barley wine" and you’ll get it. Still, one of my favorite beers ever.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2006
Bottle. Deep amber, slightly hazy. Aroma is sweet and malty, with a raisiny/dark fruit scent. Mouthfeel is very sweet. caramel, nuts, lots of raisiny dark fruit. Couldn’t detect too much in the way of hops, perhaps some light grassyness or something, but you have to search for it. I prefer the regular Sticke to this. this is probably just a touch too sweet for me.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2007 11.2 oz bottle shared with hezron and malachi


I got this from my Secret Santa. It looked interesting, especially with the flip top design so while bottling some wedding beer, we popped it open. It is pretty unique; the label is spot on is describing this as a German attempt at a barley wine. I have since seen it locally for $4.50. As good as it was, I am unlikely to buy another bottle except as a gift.

Aroma / Appearance - The nose was a vinous combination of caramel, cherries, wheat and dark bittersweet chocolate. The body was a semitransparent amber color with a thin layer of clear lacing.

Flavor / Palate - The dense creamy mouthfeel quickly filled every corner of my mouth and throat. It coated my tongue in a mixture of vanilla, caramel, chocolate, whole wheat bread and limes. The alcoholic presence comes out eventually but never overwhelms the palate. This was enjoyable and easy to drink, though I can’t see finishing more than one in a night.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours murky orange brown with a decent sized off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, alcohol, hops, and roast. The flavor is sweet, bitter, caramel, citrus. Good body, good brew.

hezron (611) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 7, 2006
Mineral laden caramel malt bomb in the aroma: caramel, toffee, dried fruit, touch of raisins and chocolate. Interesting, but not brilliant. Mahogany brown in color with a thin, off-white head that fades. Flavor is sweet. Very sweet with chewy caramel malt, some dried fruit and a bit of smokey oxidation in hte finish. Good, but just a little stale? Full mouthfeel, sticky texture. Interesting, this one was a couple years old so the 75IBU were no-where to be found. Thanks to Brigadier for sharing.

thedm (5163) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 4, 2006
This flippy top bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy with a frothy top fine to medium sized bubbles that was mostly lasting and left behind a semi-transparent brown colored body with caramel brown colored edges and an opaque center and a good lacing. The weak aroma was malty sweet and bready. The mouth feel was tingly and vinous at the start and at the finish. The strong flavor contained notes of sweet caramel malt and mildly vinous alcohol. It had a good vinous bock like flavor that was in a class of its own! Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - AUG 2, 2006
My favorite Uerige brew! Abit on the heavy side for an altbier, this is what I liked. Malty flavorness to this one, but not overly sweet, hopped well enough, hops come out twords the end, and linger on the tongue, not the sweetness. Damn good brew!

Braudog (6024) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2006
Bottle: Dark copperish brown with a solid foam head. Thick brown sugary aroma. Starkly tartness hits first, with a caramel undertow. Surprisingly thin-bodied, I thought, for such a robustly flavored beer.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2006
Bottle: Dark brown pour with a small white head, that quickly receded to just a film across the beer. Aroma, rich carmelly malts, some fruity notes. Flavor, caramel, dry, an interesting yeasty flavor, with an unusual (to me) hop flavor. Quite tasty.
