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}.

11 oz bottle-pours a big creamy tan head with bronze/red color. Aroma is apple, cherry, malt, dark caramel. Taste is sweet, an effervescent tingling on the lips/tongue, medium malt, alcohol, background hops, dark fruit. First ½ seems like a good occasional beer, 2nd ½ mellows a bit, nicer.

eaglefan538 (3020) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 3, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2006 Poured with a decent initial head that turned to a thin covering and minor lacing. The aroma was malty (caramel) with a slight burnt touch. Light hopping was also detectable. The flavor was surprisingly rich, with a somewhat sweet malty base (caramel malts indeed) under a strong hops presence. The alcohol didn’t hide much better than the hops (but wasn’t offensive) and this one was somewhat like an Imp. IPA / hoppy barleywine. Mouthfeel was thick and creamy. August ’06 update: only brewed once for the US market, unable to order on site in Uerige, although they do display the bottle behind one of the bars.

(11.2 oz bottle from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/maine/portland/ target=blank>Downeast Beverage Co.) This beer pours a murky, dark iced tea color with about 1 1/2" of biscuit head. Has a pretty intense brown sugar aroma with a bit of fruity hops discernible as head recedes. Some bits of lacing that don’t last long. Mouthfeel is big, warm, smooth and full. The flavor is big brown sugar and malt. Finishes with just the slightest hint of bitterness, and very, very slight hint of sour. No alcohol apparency. I loved this one right from the start.

OldMrCrow (2363) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 14, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2006 From the (elegant!) bottle.

Pours a slightyly orange-brown amber, with an ample just-off-white head.

The aroma is terrific - rich caramels, apricots, a pinch of agar, maybe some detergent, a whiff of alcohol; the beer really shines in its flavor, which is somewhat sweet, caramel with abundant orchard stone-fruit; rich with a pleasing bitter walnut turn on the finish. Mouthfeel is full, creamy, rich, and thoroughly enjoyable; the alcohol buirn is masterfully hidden so that one tastes a 7% burn while enjoying a beer with a 10% palate.

As the beer warms to room temperature, it comes to its full glory. This is a lovely beer, well described by the commercial comparison to a barley wine. I’ll be back.

Dark amber with a slight haze. The head is light tan and fine. The aroma is musty and rich with malt and dried plums dominating. The body is heavy with a strong malt flavor that drowns out everything else.

BBB63 (6543) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 22, 2006
Bottle and served in my GL snifter: Pours a ruddy brown with a nice tan head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of white raisins, crab apple, caramel and toasted malting, herbal hops, hint of pipe smoke, and a dusty yeast ester.

The taste starts with a heavy dose of malt and fruit but is interestingly supported by some grassy and lightly peppery hop. Strange that I get more of a fig character which was not on the nose throughout the flavor profile. The aftertaste is a bit oxidize and "barleywine-ish". Needs to air out and settle for full flavor integration. The feel is sticky and surprisingly sharp, dry and woody on the finish with even some acidic twang. Are you sure this is not barrel aged because it sure seems so?

This grew on me as the first taste was not so nice but as I adjusted it became a nicely drinkable dopple/alt/barleywine hybrid.

Dark with a hint of rid. Small off-white head. Malty nose, hints of chocolate and raisin. Well balanced flavor, big malt and german hops. Smooth finish. Thick, chewy mouthfeel. This is pretty awesome.

jercraigs (9681) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2006
Bottle. Brown body with a big creamy head that fades fairly quickly. Sweet malty aroma of caramel and light notes of toasty malt. Flavour is malt dominant, quite sweet with lots of caramel with a light malty tang/bite that is pleasant. Alcohol is virtually invisible aside from a warming feeling in the throat and the aftertaste. Medium palate is quite smooth. Lacks complexity t times, but it is delightful in its simplicity.
