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

On cask @ Buckeye about a month ago, yes I’m behind!!: Thin off white head w/ a chestnut brown body. Spicy hop aroma w/ some alcohol & esters from alcohol. Bready & toasty malt in the aroma as it warms, and overall pretty clean. Spicy hop flavor up front w/ a malty sweet balance @ first turns lightly bitter into the finish & aftertaste. Seems also a little bit salty to me, it’s probably just me. Strong toasty malt flavor throughout as well & clean of fruitiness. Low carbonation w/ alcohol warmth and a fuller body. Interesting & different! Great malty flavor w/ some lingering bitterness makes is a dangerously drinkable beer.

Oh, but this is smooth, indeed. It pours a dark copper/light brown body with a tall, pillowy beige head that laces the glass thoroughly. The aroma is a smokey caramel, dark toast, dark brown sugary affair with a mellow pine hop scent holding it all together. This drink is thick and chewy and full of flavor. There’s deep rich roasted malts, caramel, smoke and toast, dark sugar, nuts, a mild hop bitterness... great tastes well combined. The finish is sweet, sticky, and smokey. Very good stuff here.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2005
Clear, auburn ruby with a thick, fluffy off-white head. A cool, grainy, hoppy nose of the aforementioned pencil shavings, caramel, mellow pine, whole grains, toasted bread, alcohol and living vegetation. The body is thick, sticky and oh so succulent. The flavors show the higher malt and hop ratios relative to the normal sticke. Big, sweet caramel, toasted grains and molasses dominate the malty body. The finish brings out more hops, proffering earthy spiciness, pine and fresh hop oil perfume. The alcohol is extremely well hidden, which could cause problems with the unsuspecting consumer. A tasty beer, but not one I could drink very regularly.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2006 Medium clear amber with a nice sticky head which fades. Very sweet pungent aroma of sweet molasses and dark munich malts. Some sharp earthy and spicy aromas from the german hops. Some sweet brown sugar and caramel in the taste- also somewhat syrupy with a nice mouthfeel. It did remind me a lot of a barleywine except with very low hop usage.

BT (123) - Westchester, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2005 Bottled on 04.18. Pured a thin molasses color, a hint of reddish hues with light brown thin head. Tastes of roasted malts, nothing too distinctive but this is very tasty and complex. For being "Germany’s interpretation of a barley-wine," there was not even a hint of alcohol...Yum.

(Bottled on April/18/2005) The beer pours out of the bottle in a manner in which, it’s impossible not to create a huge pillowing head and lace. As, for color the beer is a deep russet red. The nose is very malty, nutty and fruity sweet. On the palate the beer is on the light side for 8.5% A.B.V. If I had to say if the beer is double bock or an alt, I would say double bock for sure.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2005
Bottle. Translucent golden brown color, head not lasting. Big caramel, molasses, brown sugar notes in the nose and taste with some spice. On the sweet side. Chewy and fills the palate.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2005
Decent look with a copper body and a light beige head. The aroma was somewhat sweet, grassy hops, caramel malts, brown sugar. Syrupy texture and full mouthfeel. Flavor was sweet and caramel like, some alcohol essence, hints of spices. Not bad but nothing special.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2005
This aroma is absolutely killer. Germanic with nostril-hair curling spiciness from hallertau. As someone from the Austrailian continent once said here on RB, flowers and pencils shavings through and through. The malt gets close to unbearably sweet, fatiguing maybe, but still has bandagey plasticyness. Yummy.

Ernest (6218) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 24, 2005
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is clear medium to dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, nuts, caramel, roasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), trace yeast (dough), with notes of cinnamon, pipe tobacco, cola, wood, sassafrass. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, heavily bitter. Medium to full body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Lotsa bittering hops, as with the other alts from Uerige (so you’ll want to let this warm up). Very complex and enticing aroma. Nice stuff, and my fave from this brewer.
