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

Bottle. Rich and malty, I like the stuff a lot. I’m a bigger fan of malt than hops, making this one right up my alley. Pours a deep amber colour. Flavors of toffee, caramel, plums, raisins, and a warming alcohol finish. Nice work by the good people of Dusseldorf.

Pours a clear amber color with a thin offwhite head. Very good aroma of rich malt, pears, caramel and spices. Again, very good flavor of rich malt, pears, spices and caramel. The body has a medium thickness, a creamy texture and low carbonation. Excellent, one of my all-time favorite German beers.

xray (50) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2005
Bottle at Spuyten Duyvil. Poured a dark plum color. Huge, frothy long lasting head that leaves behind a nice lacing. Perfect balance of malt and hops. Sweet but not cloying.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 29, 2005
Bottle. It pours a dark, slightly hazy copper color with a nice tan head and sticky lacing. It has malt, raisin, and brown sugar in the nose. Nice malt flavor with a good earthy hop bite. Nice beer.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2005
Sweet malty aroma, some brown sugar too. Ruby, with a tiny tan head. Flavour is a lovely malt, nutty and woody notes follow. Medium bodied, bitter and bold. Entirely too easy to quaff. Lovely!

Too sweet for my taste. Needs to be only slightly chilled to get the full flavor.

There’s alt country which certainly has a twang and guess this might be in that range. Mybe the lat was pulled from "altered", much like my state of mind. Originally saw this, remembered hearing good things, have loved the bottle since getting its cousin, but was going to put it back due to the price. Charles encouraged me to buy it, saying it was fantastic. have to agree. Having the xcellent malts found in the best of dopplebocks freaking with some crazy cool hops - this is hard pressed to get much better. Just needs a bigger bottle.

Bottle from SpringLicker. Thank you Jay for the opportunity to try this. Pours a deep chestnut color, really rather more brown than reddish. A bit opaque? Nice sized off-white head forms and fades slowly to a smaller layer over the liquid surface. Very nice lacing left behind. Very pleasant plummy and raisin aroma, seemingly more malty in nose. Medium to light full bodied. Pleasant carbonation, perhaps a bit soft? Malty, sweetish, suprisingly hoppy in the finish. Pleasant hop bitterness that makes itself known but never dominant, soft and fairly earthy. This was a true pleasure to drink and underrated in my lowly opinion.

kramer (5094) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2005
12 oz bottle. Poured a dark ruby with a rather large off-white head. Spicy aroma featuring caramel malt, candy like sugar, alcohol fumes, and lots of fruity esters. Flavor is very fruity with notes of molasses, syrupy malt, and tobacco. Very nice finish, malty sweetness up front that recedes to long lingering bitterness. No real alcohol flavor despite the 8.5% ABV. Medium bodied, somewhat sticky with soft natural carbonation. A little thin on the finish perhaps. Overall I really liked this. It really stretches the boundries of an Altbier, much more malty and sweet. I think it might share a lot of qualities with say a Dopplebock fermented at ale temps.
