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

JorisPPattyn (8283) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 9, 2005
Abject thanks for this rare gem to pivo and Yogi <P> Deep chestnut, clear beer; amber-beige firm head. Very malty, bread & molasses, overripe banana, faint brandy nose. Fruity taste, grapes, tons of malt, with a bitterish peak, partly hops (but this is not a hoppy beer like dat leckere Droppke is). Again sweetish brandy but the hops/coloured malts take over any time. Flavours of green velvety leaves (vineleaf?) and bready flavours, bread soaked in a sweet brandy with brambles, copper, vinous. Very full bodied, a bit burning MF, very slick. Disconcerting, even the "usual" Sticke is very different. I’m not sure I really like this - well, I do, but I still chose the draught Alt at the tavern anytime.</P> <P> This is not an Altbier anymore. Disconstructing styles, I know. But the name of this thing exists. It is known as old ale . Which means more or less the same as Alt, but the requirements fit better...

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 6, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2005 Pours with a frothy, fine bubbled tan to pale brown colored head. The beer is brilliantly clear, yet quite dark and amber hued. Wow, the aroma is concentrated and malty with notes of molasses and dark, sweet cake-like notes. There is a hint of cocoa powder, and even something resembling cinnamon. The taste is quite sweet and malty up front, yet it has a spicy hoppiness to it as well. The finish is dry in a sort of cocoa powder way, but some of the malty, toffee-like sweetness lingers on the palate and tongue even after swallowing this beer. This beer is quite rich and concentrated, definitely of bock strength. This almost reminds me of rich, dark German cake or sweetbread that has been lightly spiced. This beer has that characteristic fresh Alt hoppiness that no Bock would have; herbal with even a hint of citrus fruit. This is quite nice and flavorful.

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2005
33cL bottle. Brown, dark copper color with some reddish tones and clear. Nice head. Malty aroma with some alcohol apparent, dark caramel, too. Spicy, caramel flavor with malt and some alcohol. A good amount of sweetness is coming through. The spicyness has some black pepper and some earthy notes like heather maybe, nutmeg, too. The sweetness balances the hops and alcohol very well. The hop/malt aftertaste is incredible. What a beer. Dusseldorf here I come!

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Clear amber body with mild carbonation and a small, silky beige head. Sweet malty nose with elements of maple syrup, molasses, warm toasted bread, woody hops, mild spice, and a touch of currants. Aroma suggests a barley wine. Warm, nutty flavor of toasted grain, cinnamon stick, and bourbon. Some brown sugar sweetness is balanced by firm, lingering, woody bitterness. Very pleasant and belly warming.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - NOV 30, 2005
Dark amber color,large off white head that had a long hang time then faded slowly to a nice lace.The aroma was malty and caramel with maybe a bit of a sweetness to it.The flavor was much better then the first i had from these guys.Nice malty flavor with a nice caramel side something that seems a bit on the smokey side but faint and a nice smooth finish.A very pleasant brew for sure.

SpringsLicker (3233) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 18, 2005
Dark cherry red color with a huge frothy off white head that stands like beaten egg whites. Caramel and toasted nut aroma. Well balanced sweetness and hop bitterness comes out in front and plays back and forth all the way through a long finish. Not as heavy as a Barleywine.

Philip (436) - Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2005
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.
