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

Compared/contrasted this one with the Ueriges Sticke. Slightly darker with a creamy head. I was struck by the aroma . . . It reminded me of something sweet, a candy from my childhood. I whiffed it again and again and gave it to my wife, explaining my inability to label the aroma. She said, "Candy Circus Peanuts." Bingo! She professes to hating those things but liked this brew nonetheless. I liked it too. Overall, heartier and sweeter than the Sticke and my preference of the two.

Bottle from Premier Gourmet, Buffalo - thanks for blankboy for picking this one up for me. Very nice dark orange-amber colour with a medium sized dark cream head. Aroma is very sweet and warm, lots of caramel, malt, orange & dark fruit - really great! Full mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Excellent flavour - sweet off the top, with brown sugar and caramel, moving into some roast and a hint of chocolate, and a well-balanced hoppy finish with faint citric notes. I can see why they call this a "German barley wine" - it definately reminded me of some of the better examples of that style. Fantastic stuff - I need to get me some more of this!

Pours a three-fingered pillowy, cream head that goes slowly and leaves a good lace. Nearly clear amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is light hops. Starts with the hops and malts nearly balanced - some sweetness. Finish has some hops. Good Alt. Expensive - $4.99 for a 330ml bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, Ma.

ABUSEDGOAT (2419) - California, USA - FEB 6, 2006
Dark copper body with a reasonable sized head. Aroma is grass, bread, and caramel. The first sip was bad, a boatload of alcohol. After that it got better but the 8.5% was always bothering me. It even came off a little watery at that. Flavor is all of the above with some sugary notes. Didn’t care for this at all.

omhper (21894) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2006
Bottled. Hazy copper colour. Grassy aroma. A very powerful beer with thick mouthfeel. Plenty of malt sweetness and obvious notes of licorice. Much more barley wine character than altbier character, and with all the warming qualities of a barley wine.

hotstuff (4531) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 4, 2006
Bottle. Small, fizzy ivory head, transparent, carbonated, and dark copper hue. Aroma was sweet, malty, caramel, and hoppy. Flavor ws sweet, malty, caramel and vinuous. Absolutely delectable! Mouthfeel was smooth, thin and dry. Worthy of a try IMO and one that I want to get more of.

330ml swingtop bottle. bottled on date stamped on the lable, but it is illegible.
Pours cloudy brown, with a thick sticky head.
Rich, sweet aroma. lots of caramel, some dark fruit, and alcohol.
Flavor is sticky sweet, with some roastiness and green leafy hops in the middle. A little too sweet for my taste. steep $4.50 price tag makes it one I probably wouldn’t visit again.

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 (3000) - 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

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.
