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

Brown, creamy top . Neat looking alt . Pleasant medium bitter nose with clean malty spectrum. Sherry, woody alcoholic nose . Medium bodied, well refined. Alcohol definitive is present. Maybe more than I would wish for. Solid kraft werk .

Okay, so rarely can I claim that a beer in the 89th percentile is underrated, but this certainly is. To me, this beer is one of, if not the best beers I’ve ever had. Not too rich, just full of caramel and greatness. Next time I find it I’m going to buy it all, just like the guy in front of me was doing, until I begged two bottles off of him. He was a smart man.

(330 ml swing-top bottle: $4.49 at Bottleworks in Seattle, WA) And finally, the third of my Uerige beers tonight, the DoppelSticke pours the most beautiful of all of them. Despite a careful pour, a firm, light-tan head rises to over two inches in height, and simply takes forever to settle down. The color is also light brown, perhaps just slightly lighter than the Sticke Alt, and quite hazy like the regular Alt. Wow, this beer smells incredible; the nose is sweet, malty and very fruity, with a slight smokiness in the finish. Sweet, malty and fruity, with a moderate, balancing bitterness, and it tastes like a light barley wine. Medium-full bodied, lively and tangy on the palate, with a long-lasting finish. Lots of patchy lacing all over the glass. Simply a stunning beer. Wow.

Nice brown-mahagony colored beer with a small layer of a head leaving laces on top. Decent alcohol, malt and honey syrup and smoked nose. Lot’s of almond too! Yummie honey, dark grapes taste with a nice hoppy kick that roles over your tongue. Pepper and Cloves finsh that lasts long.

Why this is easier for me to get in NJ than in Germany, I’ll never know. Actually, I heard it’s not available in Germany. Go figure. Anyway, this has all the maturity and sophistication of a German brew, as expected. Sweet malt nose of syrup and berry. Dark amber color, low beige head. Caramel tastes with candied figs in the middle. Strong peppery and hops end to counter the heavy malt body. Good balance. Hops are on equal footing with the malt. Leaves a lollipop-like dollop of sugary sweetness on the lips through the glass. Warming alcohol effect too. Yeah!

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Bright brown color with a moderate bone colored head. Sweet caramel, brown sugar, sugar cookies and mild noble hops(floral) aromas. I am quickly smitten by the complexity of the flavors. The brewing method seems to come out fully. Starts with a floral and malt sweetness and moves to an earthy tobacco and light cola flavor. Finish has currants and raisins drifting about. A mild oak bitterness kicks in late. This shares some qualities with HotD Adam. A thinking type brew that makes one ponder the ingredients and the brewing method, but I couldn’t handle more than one at a setting.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2005
Strong caramel malt aroma with plenty of citrus-grapefruit and floral, soapy hop tones. Opaque ruby brown with immense, fluffy, off-white head that recedes slowly leaving traces all over the glass. Caramel and floral malts are strong with some roastiness and strong finishing bitterness. Big, bold and malty with an equally assertive bitterness and plenty of flavour to balance them out – maple, fig, date, molasses, cashew nuts. Somewhat mineralic in the finish. Full, rich and velvety in the mouth with lively effervescent carbonation that awakens the taste buds. Mild alcohol warming. Tulip glass, allowed to warm from fridge temp. Bottle (Bello Vino, Ann Arbor, Jul-05).

Dark mud color with a thin head. Wow was this incredibly boring. No discernable aroma and the taste was just slightly sweetened malt. Sad.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Bottled: Dark brown color, brownish head. Thick consistence. Aroma is malty and sweet. Notes of molasse, dark fruits, candis and sugar. Flavor is malty sweet, fruity, notes of raisins, cacao powder, chocolate, caramel and sugar. Well hopped end.

Dark copper mahogany pour has a thin, wispy white head. Aroma is full of sweet earthy caramel toffee with a touch of piney hops. Body starts thick and sweet with good complexity and lots of malt with a touch of German hops. A nice, authentic, malty, sipping beer.
